Kvarner route

Since 2018

Saturday embarkation/disembarkation in the port of Rijeka enables us for our first time reaching the biggest Croatian islands, Krk and Cres, as well as the adjacent coast of the peninsula of Istria with its Učka nature park. This sailing route gets even more varied by an „oceanic“ sailing around the tiny islands between northern Dalmatia and the Gulf of Kvarner. We will experience rough „moon“ landscape opposed to lush ancient forrest, pristine coves and lively island port towns. You will see different landscapes with Italian traces and charm. This route enables you completing your overal impression of whole Adriatic.

kolo MTB riders can choose from plenty of varied and demanding offroad trails, some of them tracing the already famous 4 ISLANDS MTB stage race. The adventurers can discover new paths and improvize, more than on our other, already well known routes. | 5 full biking days + 1  rest day (without biking or with a short ride) + optional biking after disembarkation.
