Hiking Ucka Nature Park
Hiking in Istria
A one-hour drive from Porec brings us to Ucka Nature Park, where we will begin our hike up to Vojak peak on Mount Ucka. Rising 1,401 meters above sea level, Vojak is the highest peak on the Istrian peninsula.
This area is known for its unique climate and lush forests. Ucka’s meadows and woodlands are home to many protected, endemic plant and animal species.
At the summit, we are rewarded on our Istria adventure, with a breathtaking view of Istria’s rolling green hills, the shimmering Adriatic Sea, Kvarner Islands and Velebit Mountains in the distance. On a clear day, it is possible to see the Italian Alps, and even Venice! It makes hiking Ucka a must do activity.
We can enjoy a picnic lunch (please bring your own food and snacks) with a view of the mountains and sea, making sure to leave no trace in this protected natural area.
The hike will take around 4 hours from start to finish.
