Hike to the Top of Istria

Istria Adventure: Hiking in Cicarija

Enjoy a day of hiking in Istria through wild Cicarija – a mountainous plateau in the northernmost part of Istria just next to the Slovenian border. On this half-day hiking trip, we’ll visit some of Istria’s most rugged natural areas that remain largely unknown to tourists. You can step back in time as we pass through traditional villages and pastures filled with grazing goats and sheep. Along the trail, we’ll take in views of Cicarija’s grasslands and forests and the rolling hills throughout northern Istria. From the summit, we’ll enjoy a stunning view of the whole Istrian peninsula. On a clear day, you can see the Dolomites in Italy, the Alps in Slovenia and Austria and the cities of Trieste, Koper and Venice. We’ll take a break at the top to enjoy the view – you are welcome to bring snacks for a picnic lunch.

This tour is possible as hiking only or a combination of hiking and cycling using e-bikes (additional fee). Please let us know what you would prefer when booking.
