    Immersed in the blue of the Adriatic Sea, there is something magical about Istria, the largest (3600 square kilometres) and most northerly of the Croatian peninsulas. The coastal strip, known locally as Blue Istria, is popular with sun-seekers during the summer months, while the interior, or Green Istria, is another story entirely. Here, we will find a world of shading forest, historic hilltop towns, vineyards, olive groves and picturesque rivers. It’s the perfect place for a leisurely cycling holiday.

    We start our exploration at Buje, close to Croatia’s northern border with Slovenia, then head south slowly, picking out all of the highlights of this delightful corner of Europe. From the lighthouse at Savudrija to medieval settlements such as Groznjan, we will ride on country roads and then for 2 days on the delightful dismantled railway track of the Parenzana through the rolling hills of the ‘Croatian Tuscany’.

    We will visit wine cellars to sample some of the local favourites, such as Malvasia and Teran. We will also take every opportunity to chill out in pavement cafes overlooking the rolling Istrian countryside and to enjoy local Istrian culinary specialities. Spending time in the coastal towns of Porec and Rovinj and Pula, we will be able to appreciate their beauty, whilst learning a little of their rich histories.

    If you are looking for a leisurely cycling holiday, with a stunning mix of landscape, culture, delicious food and excellent wines, this is one to consider.

    Tourism is the world’s fastest growing industry. Traveling to far flung places gives us a wonderful opportunity to experience cultures that are so different from our own. But with the wondrous joy of travel comes the responsibility of ensuring that we do not adversely affect those countries that we visit. In a nutshell, Responsible Travel is about ensuring that you, as travelers, and Fiore Adventure, as a promoter of travel:

    • respect the local culture
    • do not inadvertently introduce new social ills and
    • promote & practice environmental responsibility in the places that we visit

    That way, you enjoy a unique and memorable experience as well as authentic cross-cultural exchange and our local resources, cultures and customs are protected.

    It has always been at the heart of Fiore Adventure’ ethos to not exploit local communities’ culture and environment.

    We ensure our tours are:

    • low impact on natural resources
    • respectful and observant of local customs and
    • supportive of local economies

    All staff of Fiore Adventure are locally employed and all our guides are, ensuring a more authentic experience for travelers, as well as sensitivity to local customs and culture. We also involve local communities in remote areas that we travel to.

    Our environmental policy:

    • We recycle all our waste paper
    • Our correspondence and promotion is carried out via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities
    • We use established, locally-owned and run accommodation wherever possible and aim to leave sites in better condition than we find them.
    • Our vehicle fleet is managed to minimise environmental impact.
    • Our group sizes are small, helping minimise cultural and environmental impact.
    • We monitor our impact, and where necessary alter our programmes accordingly.
    • We always abide by site-specific guidelines pertaining to flora and fauna.

    Social policy:

    • All staff of Fiore Adventure are locally employed and all our guides are, ensuring a more authentic experience for travelers, as well as sensitivity to local customs and culture. We also involve local communities in remote areas that we travel to.

      On all our tours we use local produce and provide local-style meals, and we encourage our guests to try local dishes and delicacies
    • We support local economy and small business by supporting locally owned shops, restaurants, and using local guide services.
      Using local employees, accommodation providers, local restaurants and transportation services, Fiore Adventure ensures that financial benefits remain in the local community.

    What you can do:

    • Learn something about Croatia: culture, religion, geography, politics and local customs.I strongly recommend to get a good travel guide such as Lonely Planet guides or Croatian Tourism Board. They are very useful before and during your staying.
    • Try to speak at least a few words of Croatian, you will make a big impression by doing it and it’s also a show of respect and interest on your part.
    • In many places fresh water is a very precious commodity and should not be wasted, so use a minimum for showering and washing, especially when you are on islands, tap water is drinkable throughout Croatia
    • Turn out the lights or air condition when you leave your room, use the public transport as much as you can, minimize your waste generally
    • Pick up your litter, never live any trace in nature, when you are in rural areas please stay to the trails and don’t damage or take any plants or flowers

    Packing list – adventure travel
    One word: versatility. Your destination and the duration of time you’re traveling generally dictates what—and how much—to bring along. But whether you’re living out of your bag for two weeks or four months, pack clothes that can do double duty, ones that are functional enough for the trail but sharp enough not to stand out in a city. Sun hats can become rain hats, backpacks with detachable daypacks free your hands when lugging your gear from bus stop to hotel, and a good pair of travel pants with a concealed zipper pocket could stand in for a money belt.

    When it comes to clothing, stay away from cotton (or at least aim for poly/cotton blends; it may be comfortable, but it takes forever to dry), and try for wrinkle-free clothes. Pack one nice outfit for that must-have dinner in a Parisian café, and always have pants or a skirt that’s long enough to cover your legs should you be traveling in a country where custom dictates a degree of modesty. In warmer climes, you’ll naturally be packing lighter. In cooler locales, layering will stretch your wardrobe. Another piece of advice: darker colors generally blend in anywhere, let you mix and match without becoming a fashion accident, and save the hassle of constant washing. And if you’re heading someplace with inexpensive markets and shopping (Southeast Asia, for example), you can always buy a few new items when the need or desire strikes.

    In the brave new world of bags, you can get a rolling bag/backpack hybrid that gives you the versatility, and the newer generation of rollers come with wheels that swallow up Central European cobblestone as much as NYC asphalt. But if you’re uncertain, let your interest be your guide. Trekking in Annapurna? Go with a traditional backpack. Crawling the pavement of South America’s metropolises? A rolling bag will save your back and serve you well.

    Cycle the Wine roads of Istria


    Meet the group at the hotel in Buje. Depending on your arrival time, you may have some time to explore. The town of Buje is 3 -4 kilometers away along the old rail track of Parenzana. In the afternoon you will pick up your bikes and meet the guide and the rest of the group. Info meeting and welcome dinner at the hotel.
    Accommodation: B&B Lovac 3*, Buje area or similar
    Meals: welcome dinner
    Transfer: group transfer from Pula airport to hotel in Buje (fixed timing)
    Biking: set up of bikes

    We start our first ride on a quiet backroad which takes us down to the coast through olive groves and vineyards. Arriving to the sea at Lovrecica, we head north, passing a couple of small bays en route to the colourful harbour and town of Umag, which we’ll reach after 23 kilometers of cycling. Umag provides us with great introduction to Croatia’s Mediterranean way of living, so we’ll explore amongst renaissance and baroque buildings and churches and take the opportunity to stop for a cafe on a promenade. Heading north again, we pass a number of low-key resorts and after further 8 kilometers we reach the north-eastern tip of the Istrian Peninsula. Here is the oldest lighthouse in the Adriatic, the 36-metre tall Savudrija, still in use and still manned. Protecting the southern approaches to the Gulf of Trieste, the lighthouse was Italian-financed, its construction beginning in 1817. From here, we cycle back inland and alongside Croatia’s northern border with Slovenia. This part of our ride is very gradually uphill – during the final 20 kilometres of cycling we gain around 200 metres of elevation. We end our ride at a vineyard and wine cellar close to Momjan. Muscat, Malvasia and Teran are just 3 of the local wines worth sampling. After our wine tasting, we have a short transfer back to our hotel outside Buje.
    Accommodation: B&B Lovac 3*, Buje area or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking, wine tasting
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 52 km / 32 miles, total ascent 490, descent -400m

    For the next 2 days we will cycle the old railway track of Parenzana and use mountain bikes that provide us a more comfortable ride. We head inland on this easy gravel cycle path, through tunnels and over old bridges, into the heart of rural Istria (known as the Croatian Tuscany). Parenzana, known as the wine railway, was built to link Porec with Trieste and was operational between 1905 and 1935. The first stop on our route is the pretty, medieval hill-top settlement of Groznjan which overlooks the valley of the Mirna River. Dating from around the year 1100., Groznjan is today a centre of artists and artisans. We will explore its timeless streets on foot, where it look like that every doorway leads to an artist’s studio. Once again, we are in no hurry and it will be hard to resist the attraction of one of the town’s pavement cafes. This part of the peninsula is known as Istria County and we continue our ride eastwards through rolling countryside above the Mirna River, to the truffle centre Livade, where we visit a truffle shop and have the chance to taste this much sought-after fungal growth. Our overnight hotel is now just a couple of kilometres away, in the beautiful hill-top village of Motovun on the opposite (south) bank of the river.
    Accommodation: Hotel Villa Borgo or Kaštel 3*, Motovun or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 30 km / 19 miles, total ascent 460, descent -600m

    From Motovun, we cycle back towards the coast, again following the old track Parenzana. We drop down out of the village and follow the track through a 200 metre tunnel, emerging to find views across the Mirna Valley as we leave Motovun behind us. We stop for a coffee in Vizinada after an hour or so and then continue towards the coast. At times, although we are still following the route of the Parenzana, we find ourselves cycling on the bare, red Istrian soil, as we pass on farm tracks amongst pretty vineyards and olive groves. We stop for lunch in Visnjan, a hilltop village notable for its architecture and for its astronomical observatory. From the village square, at an elevation of around 250 metres, we can actually see the sea. After lunch we have an enjoyable 15 kilometre ride out to the coast, passing the last of the old Parenzana railway stations just before we reach Porec, a town famous for its UNESCO listed Basilica and charming old quarter. We will finish our day cycling around the wall that surrounds the old town of Porec to reach our hotel.
    Accommodation: Hotel Poreč 3*, Poreč or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 39 km / 25 miles, total ascent 400, descent -570m

    No need to pack our bags this morning as we will be staying another night at our Porec hotel. So, after breakfast, we start our scenic ride with a visit to the 6th century cathedral of the Euphrasiana, the most important monument in Porec. The interior of the cathedral is very impressive and well worth the admission charge. Leaving Porec, we head inland on quiet roads to the village of Bacva, the highest point of today’s ride and a good place for a cafe stop. After our break at Bacva, we head southwards and back down to the coastal village of Vrsar. Strategically located, with a commanding view of the coast, Vrsar was fortified in the 12th century as a part of the Istrian Peninsula’s coastal defence system. We will take the opportunity to visit the remains of the castle and enjoy the sea views, before cycling northwards to the fishing village of Funtana. Now heading back to our hotel in Porec, we cycle through the resort areas of Zelena and Plava Laguna.
    Accommodation: Hotel Poreč 3*, Poreč or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 48 km / 30 miles, total ascent 470, descent -470m

    This morning’s leisurely ride starts from Kanfanar, after a short transfer. However, anyone feeling energetic can choose to make an early start and cycle an additional 20 kilometres, accompanied by the cycling guide. Kanfanar is a small inland town above the Lim Valley and our ride today is the flattest of the tour. Our route will take us back through the Bale region. At Svetvincenat, we will be able to explore the imposing Morosini-Grimani fortress and relax in its renaissance town square surrounded by cypress trees. This is another very attractive Istrian settlement, although one with a chequered history – including a 17th century witchcraft trial. At the pretty village of Bale we can make a stop to visit the Soardo-Bembo Palace, a very distinctive 15th century Venetian Gothic building. Here, too, we can visit a famous olive oil producer, where we can learn about the trees, the harvest and the processing of the oil. Arriving at our hotel in Rovinj, we have time to look around this ‘Pearl of Adriatic’, with its colourful houses, distinctive church and bell-tower. Fresh fish (combined with a glass of Malvasia) is a popular choice at dinner this evening. Everybody can enjoy Rovinj, its charm and magic.
    Accommodation: B&B Baron Gautsch 3* or Hotel Villa Lili 3*, Rovinj or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking, olive oil tasting tasting
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 35 km / 22 miles, total ascent 160, descent -420m

    After breakfast, we have a 20-minute transfer to the medieval town of Zminj, before setting off on the last ride of the trip, southwards to Pula. Cycling through a distinctly rural region, we will see lots of traditional drystone toolsheds, known locally as ‘kazuni’. These are similar to the ‘trulli’ found in Puglia and the ‘bories’ in Provence. We pass through pretty countryside with several small villages and an obvious lunch stop is in the colourful town of Vodnjan. Finally, we cycle into Pula, the largest town on the peninsula with a population of almost 60,000. Located in a superb natural harbour, Pula has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt on numerous occasions since Roman times. We will finish the day with a sightseeing tour of the old part of the city, where the triumphal Arch of the Sergil and the great amphitheatre Pula Arena are the standout attractions. Overnight at our Pula hotel and a final farewell dinner at a local restaurant.
    Accommodation: Hotel Amfiteatar 3*, Pula or similar
    Meals: breakfast, picnic lunch and refreshment during biking, farewell dinner
    Transfer: support van during biking
    Distance: 47 km / 30 miles, total ascent 210, descent -560m

    Departure after breakfast.
