    Overview

    A morning transfer to Poklon, a saddle between two hills from where the trail starts. It goes to the top of Učka mountain, the biggest mountain in Istria with an altitude of 1401m. From the top it goes all the way down to a sea leveled Lovran. A path is covered by beech and chestnut forests that give pleasant freshness during hot summer. The very summit of Ucka (Vojak) is worth climbing on for a stunning panorama.
    The panorama of Kvarner bay includes sea and coastal towns, as well as the background mountains: Obruc, Snjeznik and Risnjak. Western side of the whole istrian peninsula lies just in front of you. Sometimes, if visibility is good, you capture the magnificent view towards Venice and Alps on the northern side. Our hike continues down, following the trail through the forest with magnificent panorama of the Kvarner Bay with its islands. After a 3 to 3.5 hour hiking we reach Lovran and meet our bus. Transfer to hotel.

    WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL?

    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.
    • Our accommodation is mostly provided in small hotels, guest houses or apartments.
      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

    TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

    Fiore tours & adventure operates a fleet of different vehicles from cars, minivans and minibuses. Each van is equipped stereo radio/ CD sound systems with microphone, cloth/velour upholstered seats, carpeted interior and air conditioning. The vans are regularly serviced and continuously checked by a well established network of maintenance and service facilities throughout the country. This adds up to the best preventative maintenance program, but technical problems are not always avoidable.

    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.
