Holiday information

 

A walking holiday on the Istrian Peninsula

From the Adriatic Coast, a lush, green landscape of rolling hills rises to the rugged peaks of the Ucka Mountains in the east before dropping steeply to the sparkling waters of the Bay of Kvarner. This is a land of secluded valleys and fertile hills dotted with fortified medieval towns and a spectacular jagged coastline of lagoons and islands, secret coves and beaches, punctuated by historic fishing villages.
You cross the breadth of the Istrian Peninsula, from close to the Adriatic Sea in the west to the beautiful eastern seaboard. As you walk the fields, woods, vineyards and floodplains of the Mirna Valley, you pass through small hill-top towns whose architectural legacy is of ‘La Serenissima’, as the Republic of Venice was known, which held sway for centuries. Influences of the Austro-Hungarian Empire which followed are found both on your plate, with goulash, strudel and ‘palacinke’ (sweet pancakes) and in the landscape, such as La Parenzana railway, built in the early C20th, now a long distance cycle and footpath whose winding route you intersect with at several points. Starting near bustling Buje then moving on to the medieval towns of Motovun and Buzet, you experience the authentic, picturesque heart of the Istrian Peninsula, before continuing over the mountains to enjoy Lovran’s riviera, with exceptional coastal walking and celebrated seafood.

Itinerary

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • The average maximum daytime temperatures and monthly rainfall relate to the nearest weather station and are intended as a guide only.

    mm 76 69 71 84 78 91 65 93 102 95 109 88
  • Arrival in Krasica or Brtonigla
    Night 1: at Al Merlo Olivo in Krasica (the first of two nights here). Alternatively, you can choose to upgrade to the Hotel San Rocco in Brtonigla for your first two nights.
    As your first night’s accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of walking.
  • Circular route from Krasica: 15.5km, 4.5hrs; or from Brtoniglia: 10.5km, 4hrs

    Circular route from Krasica: 15.5km, 4.5hrs; ascent / descent 325m
    Our introductory circuit from Krasica leads you along scenic paths and lanes, and part of La Parenzana (a historic former railway) to the charming hill-top village of Buje. After a leisurely lunch here, return to Krasica via olive and vine-clad hills.

    Circular route from Brtoniglia: 10.5km, 4hrs; ascent / descent 260m
    If you are staying in Brtoniglia, we recommend a route which explores the Skarline Nature Reserve south-east of the town, with several small lakes and a stream that has carved a canyon on its course to the River Mirna. Be sure to leave time to explore Brtoniglia, too – this historic hill-top village has a lovely medieval centre, rich wine-making heritage and a number of excellent Istrian eateries.

    Circular route from Krasica: 15.5km
    Circular route from Brtoniglia: 10.5km
  • Krasica to Motovun: 21km, 6.5hrs; ascent 485m / descent 720m; Brtoniglia to Motovun: 19km, 5.5hrs
    If you are starting from Krasica, you begin with a short walk to Grožnjan; from the alternative accommodation in  Brtoniglia we include a transfer to this medieval hill-top village. Enjoy browsing the narrow cobbled streets and galleries of this artists’ colony before striking out across high rural uplands towards the historic village of Oprtalj. This walled village, centred on the 16th-century church of St George, is an ideal spot to break your walk before descending steeply to the plain. A short section of La Parenzana takes you into Livade, where the world’s biggest ever truffle was found. From here a pre-arranged taxi whisks you up to the hill top town of Motovun, where you have two nights at the Hotel Kastel.
    Krasica to Motovun: 21km
    Towards the hill top village of Groznjan on the route from Krasica to Motovun
  • Circular route from Motovun: 13.5km, 4.5hrs; ascent / descent 500m
    Today, you could simply relax and explore the medieval sights of the walled town or enjoy the hotel’s spa facilities, but we suggest a circular walk through the picturesque fruit-growing area south of Motovun, where apples, pears and plums grow together with olives, figs and cherries. We include a visit and tasting at the award winning Benvenuti vineyard (closed Sundays), famous for elevating the traditional local Teran grape to new heights.
     
    The route around Motovun
    Circular route around Motovun: 13.5km
  • Motovun to Buzet: 12.5km, 4.5hrs; ascent 420m / descent 300m
    A short transfer takes you to the banks of the river Mirna to walk upstream, below the ruins of Pietrapelosa Castle, towards Buzet. A path climbs from the river to pass medieval bauxite mines before traversing rugged wooded hillsides around the Zudeka gorge, then through ancient farming hamlets. The way finally descends back to the river Mirna for a short climb to the old walled town of Buzet. A shorter option simply follows the banks of the Mirna all the way to Buzet.
    Follow the river Mirna
    Motovun to Buzet: 12.5km
  • Poklon to Lovran: 11.7km, 4hrs; ascent 160m / descent 1065m
    You are transferred to the Poklon Visitor Centre of the Ucka Nature Park for an introduction to its diverse habitat. From this high point, you follow ancient ways through oak and beech forest, frequently on stone built paths, glimpsing the islands of Kvarner Bay from occasional glades and passing settlements where smallholders produced charcoal and cheese. A steady descent takes you to Lovran on the coast where your final two nights are spent at the Villa Vera.
    Lovran
    Poklan to Lovran: 11.7km
  • Choice of routes from Lovran: 9.5km or 12km

    Lovran is a charming, relaxed harbour town set in a natural bay with the Ucka Mountains as a stunning backdrop. It became a fashionable resort of the Austro-Hungarian nobility in the 19th century. The narrow streets of the old town can be enjoyably explored as you search out its best seafood restaurants.

    You can choose between coastal or mountain walking while here.

    Along the promenade to Volosko: 12km, 4hrs
    The coastal promenade, the ‘lungomare’, was built at the beginning of the 19th century and runs right by the sea – even directly above rocky coves on elevated sections – passing swimming beaches, opulent villas and luxuriant gardens. There are cafes and restaurants, and shaded benches from which to admire the view over to the islands of Krk and Cres. You pass through the old resort town of Opatija to reach the fishing harbour of Volosko, from where a regular bus service returns you to Lovran.

    Medieval Moscenice: 9.5km, 3.5hrs; ascent / descent 460m
    To explore more of the foothills of the Ucka Nature Park we suggest catching the bus to the coastal town of Mošcenicka Draga and climbing inland up forested slopes for glorious views over the rugged coastline and Kvarner Bay. A high traverse leads to the medieval village of Mošcenice before descending the locally famous 700 paved steps to the coast to return to your starting point via a promenade.

    Travelling from outside the UK

    If you are flying from outside Europe,  you may need to fly to an airport not listed here. To discuss onward connecting travel to the start of your holiday, please contact us.

    This list of flight options should be used as a guide only, and you should check each airline’s website for current routes, frequency and schedules. Not all flights operate daily, and may not run for the entire season. You should also heed the latest flight arrival time and earliest flight departure time stated in the connecting travel section, as it may not be possible to arrange connecting travel outside these times. Please do not book your flights until we have confirmed your accommodation to you. Alternatively, our expert reservations team will be happy to offer advice and to make flight bookings for you for any of the options listed above except those operated by Ryanair. We charge £35 per person for our flight booking service. Your flights are then covered by our package-booking conditions, which give you greater protection in the event of delay or cancellation, as well as providing ATOL cover.

  • Prices below are based on 2 people travelling together. If you are travelling solo or as a party of 3 or more and our arrangements include a taxi, please contact us for prices; additional passengers often pay less.

    Unless otherwise stated, connecting travel by rail or bus tends to be from the city centre station, rather than from its airport, and connections between the two should be paid for locally.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >

 

FAQs

If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help. You might also find our General FAQs section helpful.
  • If your holiday plans go awry because of Coronavirus, rest assured that we’ll do right by you. Since the start of the pandemic, our flexible booking policy and prompt issuing of refunds to customers who prefer not to defer their holiday have earned us high praise in the national press.
  • We sincerely hope that your holiday experience will be as enjoyable as it would have been before the pandemic – walking holidays are ideal in these times of social distancing, and we’re not operating holidays if the key highlights can no longer be delivered – but, naturally, there will be some changes to ensure your and other people’s safety, not least proving your vaccination status or taking a test in order to travel.
    Your holiday experience: what to expect >
    Safety measures being taken by hoteliers & others >
    Entry requirements for non-UK destinations & for re-entering the UK >
  • We’ll send you route notes and maps 2-3 weeks before your holiday. The route notes not only contain directions to get from A to B, but also include practical information about places of interest and eateries along each route, plus cultural information about the area. If/when you are moving between hotels, you leave your luggage in reception as you leave, and it will be transferred ahead to your next accommodation, meaning that all you need to take with you are a camera, sun cream, drinks, food and waterproofs.

    For more detailed information, see our walking holidays in Europe page.
  • We can book a wide range of routes from the UK with a variety of airlines (but not, currently, with Ryanair). As well as being more convenient for you to book all elements of your holiday together, it also means that we’ll accept liability for your travel arrangements, so if things go wrong, such as the airline going bust, we’ll make suitable alternative arrangements for you. The fee for this service is £35 per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). More information on flights >
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted to book your own flights to London (or elsewhere in the UK), we can make all onward travel arrangements (including flights) from there. Alternatively, if you are booking your own flights to an airport in continental Europe that’s appropriate for your holiday, we can book onward rail travel and/or taxis. More information about how we can tailor holidays for customers outside the UK >
  • Since our holidays are self-guided, we recommend calling us for a chat about your plans before making a booking, especially if it’s the first time you’ve booked with us.
    The price panel shows the supplement for a single room and also the single traveller charge (this covers (luggage) transfers and other costs which are usually shared between two people).
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to take out a policy with our recommended provider (if you live outside the UK you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    We'll ask you for the details of your policy (insurer, policy number and medical emergency phone number) so that we can help out if the worst happens while you are on holiday. It's up to you, though, to check that your policy covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs; we don't check alternative policies.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Croatia, but not a visa. If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). You should also apply for a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) if your EHIC has expired (if you have a still-valid EHIC, you can use this until it expires).
  • The official language is Croatian. The currency is the Kuna. Croatian time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • For information on the practicalities of travel now that the UK is no longer part of the European Union, visit www.gov.uk/visit-eu-switzerland-norway-iceland-liechtenstein.

    At Inntravel we work in close partnership with our hoteliers, taxi drivers and other local suppliers to provide our self-guided holidays directly to you. We are entirely confident that you will continue to receive the usual warm welcome from them, regardless of what is happening in the European political sphere.
  • The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.

    If you live outside the UK, see our essential travel information page for a list of relevant websites.
  • You are the best judge of your child’s/children’s capabilities. We are happy to take bookings for families of older children/teenagers if they walk regularly, love the outdoors and are comfortable with the distances and ascent/descent involved. Please note that the bedrooms at most of the accommodation we use will normally only sleep a maximum of 3 people, and sometimes only 2.
