We enter the trail at Medveja beach, pass through the gorge, and ascending the slopes of Ucka on a winding path. We will pass through different landscapes, and if we travel in the springtime, we will see forest streams full of running water. The brave can also try immersing themselves in clear, fresh and cold spring water.
The trip lasts between 4 and 6 hours, depending on how fast we move and how much time we take for breaks. We don’t have a strict tour time; when we come – we come. We do not walk under pressure and we take frequent breaks. We have sandwiches and snacks with us; water, chocolate, nuts, something for energy.
At the very top, a means of transport will be waiting for us, which will take us back to your accommodation. Depending on your mood and energy levels, after a hiking trip and before returning to the hotel/accommodation, we can go to the beach and there you can swim in the sea and complete the experience.
There are several quality taverns nearby, so we can continue for dinner. We will work on the exact plan on the go, depending on your wishes, energy level and your mood.

DAY 1 Arrival to Kvarner and Opatija
Welcome! Upon arrival, check-in at a 4-star hotel situated in Opatija, free time to freshen up and get ready for the days ahead.
There is no better way to get a feel for the soul of this region than to take a leisured walk of the town with a local guide. Your guide will meet you in front of your hotel and take you to an evening stroll through Opatija's romantic promenades and streets. Discover for yourself why Opatija has been one of the most popular destinations for sightseeing in Croatia since the 19th century when the Habsburgs turned it into one of Europe’s most popular destinations where nobles and aristocrats enjoyed in moments of peace far from their courts and daily politics.
Walking through Opatija is a „wellness experience“ by itself. The fresh air filled with the gentle taste of aerosol rich in iodine and sea salt is the perfect recipe for health, and it was recognized 130 years ago when Opatija received the title of a royal sanatorium. Walking along the boardwalk Lungomare the entire wellness experience is enhanced with a view of the bay and the sea waves crashing on the rocks on one side and the Art-deco villas built by famous Viennese architects on the other.
You will start from Slatina toward Volosko and get to know many of the highlights of Opatija such as the Maiden with the Seagull – the famous background for many touristic photographs. Amongst them are the Angiolina botanical gardens and the villa carrying the same name in its centre, the starting point of the tourism story for Opatija where the Croatian Museum of Tourism is situated today.
To get ready for the active days ahead, enjoy the hotel spa and relax zone and have a nice dinner at the hotel. Evening at leisure. Overnight in Opatija.
DAY 2 Mount Učka hike - Hills to Sea trail
We hope your breakfast was great and you are ready for hiking. Beside your hiking equipment, don’t forget to take your swimsuit. Your guide will meet you in front of the hotel.
You will be on the trail no later than 9:00 a.m. The trail starts at Poklon (922 m). The route will lead through forest and meadows until reaching a 1,012 m high hilltop sloping down into the sea. On the way to this point (Babin grob), you will pass through the beautiful landscape of Učka Nature Park.
On the hilltop, gaze at the rich opening before you and have some rest.
From Babin Grob, you will take a trail descending via east slope of Učka down to Medveja, a strip of coast with a beautiful beach. A definite highlight is to enter the sea right after the hike. If you consider yourself a die-hard outdoorsman, you can swim in the sea in the wintertime as well. It is a vigorous experience!
Please note, some previous downhill hiking experience is recommended. The lower section of the route has hundred-year-old stone stairs that you should take on your way down to the coast.
There is no backbreaking tempo however, and you rest a lot. Special attention is paid to scenic routes.

The boat ride starts from Lovran at 7:00 a.m. to the northeast side of the island of Cres.

You will dock in the village of Beli from where you set off on foot at 9:00 a.m. from the coast up to the north tip of the Tramontana ridge. This is not a demanding tour, but it is not negligible either. Certain physical fitness is required. This hike can be particularly challenging at the height of the summer when it’s hot and when in principle this tour is off. The tour is designed for pleasant temperatures of early and late spring, early and late summer, fall, and early winter.
Accompanied by your local guide, you will walk up for about 2,5 hours before getting to the ridge. Walking on it, you will see that the ridge is a mixture of dense forest patches and barren lands, with beautiful views of the east coast and the Adriatic Sea. Along the way, you will probably see wild animals, sheep herds, and there is a possibility to see griffon vultures as well. You’ll be passing by wooded areas alternate with rocky clearings, and such a landscape will be repeated back and forth to the highest part of the ridge (Sis, 639 m) from where you descend to the south side of the ridge and the narrowest belt of the island Cres.
You will walk along the ridge for 2 hours before descending (30-minute walk) to the altitude of 370 m, where a van will pick you up and drive to Dragozetići village (274 m). From the village, you have some half an hour on foot to a quiet and beautiful beach where a boat is waiting for you. You will be met by our captain and a lunch – barbecue. For vegetarians, we have a veggie option.
The trail is unmarked, and the path is relatively easy, but in some places, the hike will include rocky terrain. There you will need to take extra care on your step and keep stability. You will have several breaks during the walk, the pace is light and relaxed. At one of the stops along the way, you will take a picnic break. The picnic features delicious homemade food for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
