Hiking in Kvarner Playground
1st Day OPATIJA – FOR RICH AND FAMOUS
We’ll meet at your hotel before noon, so we can take you for a stroll through a story of tourism history. Not only of Kvarner region, but for all Croatia! It all started here in Opatija thanks to nobleman and royals so we can say you are at the right place. Jet set simple as that 🙂 After Opatija we’ll have a light walk to the little fisherman village called Volosko, and the walk is just next to waves. They will whisper you a story of strollers through the years… We’ll have a lunch in Volosko and head back to Opatija to have a time for yourself. But will meet for dinner. How sunset dinner sounds like?
2nd Day OPATIJA / UČKA – FORREST HUG AND TOUCH OF CLOUDS
Today we’ll go for a hike on the highest point of the region, the Učka mountain. We will be passing through shady trails just to arrive on the viewpoint that will take your breath away. With such a great view little snack would come like topping on the cake! In the evening we are taking you for a short walk in Lovran, charming old town where we will have an optional dinner.
3rd Day KRK– TO THE MOON… AND 4 LEGGED FRIENDS
The name is Krk, the biggest island of Croatia… or maybe not? In Kvarner expect unexpected so that’s a story about the size of this island. Nevertheless, we are taking you for a light hike to… the moon! No worries! We are staying on this planet, but a trail is called “a moon path” and it justifies it’s name. We’ll have a lunch, but before we leave the island let us introduce you with the 4 legged friends. Yup! We are taking you for horseback riding.
4th Day KRK/CRES – NO STRESS ALLOWED!
The saying goes: “No stress on Cres!” and for that reason please no stress allowed 🙂 From island of Krk we’ll head to Island of Cres, a place where tranquillity is a way of life. Just to witness the beauty of this region, we will hike Osorčica hill. And that is on the other island of Mali Lošinj, connected to Cres by a small bridge. From the top you’ll see shape of the island and majestic Adriatic sea. After a hike, we are taking you to taste specialty of Cres gastronomy, Cres lamb.
5th Day RISNJAK – GREEN BEAUTY OF THE FORREST
This is one of the youngest national parks of Croatia and name Risnjak derives from “ris” meaning lynx. Today it will be most challenging hiking day but you’ll be treated with a forest love and a homemade lunch with a spectacular view. As we leave the Risnjak peak, on our way back to Opatija we will stop in one very special place. It’s time to raise our glasses and have a rakija tasting. Rakija means brandy or grappa, but the one that you’ll have a chance to taste is unique for this area. So cheers guys!
6th Day KASTAV – A DAY TO REWIND…
A day to relax a bit… So we planned extra easy walk in the woods in enchanting top-on-the-hill town of Kastav. Try not to be taken by the charming streets of this romantic spot! We’ll visit a small local tradition museums and have a relaxing lunch with outstanding view. In the afternoon, it’s time to pack… We know you had awesome time and you want to stay little bit more. Well then don’t miss a farewell diner 🙂
