TRAVEL ITINERARY

4 days / 3 nights

Day 1

(approx. 35 km, if you have time)

Individual arrival at your start hotel in Porec. If you arrive early we have a few suggestions for your first day in Croatia: either you visit the Brijuni islands by boat or the Limski channel, or you enjoy your day off by the sea or visit the hinterland of Porec. The Brijuni-islands are twelve smaller and 2 bigger islands; the main island Veli Brijun was used by the Yugoslav statesman Tito as summer residence. Today the islands are a National Park and only Veli Brijun is open to the public. Going by boat to the fjord-alike Limski channel you might be lucky and see some dolphins. The Limski-channel is National Park too and on the coast you find mussels and oyster farms.

Day 2

(approx. 55 km)

Have a last view over the picturesque seaport on Istria’s west coast before you leave to Rovinj. The city is surrounded in the west and the south west by the Adriatic Sea. Afar the high bell tower of the Euphemia Church built on the highest spot of Rovinj, greats you. Go ahead, if you would like to cycle to Zlatni rt (also known as Golden Cape), a peninsula, where you find a park in a nature reserve.

Day 3

(approx. 45 - 55 km)

The last day on your „expedition“ in Istria leads you to Pula on Istria’s south west point. Pula is the oldest town of Istria and its commercial and cultural centre. Enjoy your last day of your trip amongst various antiquities and the mighty Roman amphitheatre in the centre of Pula.

Day 4

Individual departure or possibility to extend your stay.
