Istrian Countryside Cycling

Croatia cycling tour through the Istrian countryside

Rural Istria is rich with medieval hilltop villages, vineyards, olive groves, meadows, and forests – the area is very pleasant for touring on a bike. Our Croatia cycling tour route includes Oprtalj and Groznjan, charming hillside towns where we will have time for a short walk and exploring. We will also cycle the Parenzana, an old railroad bed now known as a mecca for cyclists. As we travel down to the Mirna River Valley, we will enjoy magnificent views of the countryside from the trail.

This is a 42km round trip and ends at the starting point. Most of the route follows paved roads with little traffic, but part is on packed dirt and gravel. The trip is a moderate level of difficulty. If you are not used to cycling on hilly terrain, you may find the trip more enjoyable on an e-bike (35 euro surcharge).

09:00 Meet at the starting point, safety briefing, start cycling.
12:30 Arrival in Groznjan, break for lunch and refreshing drinks. Begin Parenzana trail after lunch.
15:30 End of cycling trip and optional visit to Motovun Old Town.
