The Istria Peninsula in northern Croatia is a relatively unknown hidden gem which feels a world away from the well known Adriatic coast to the south.
The trek offers spectacular, diverse scenery of lush green forested hills and limestone mountain peaks, vineyards, olive groves, meandering rivers, untouched stone villages and medieval hilltop towns.
This challenging trek follows the Istria Mountain Trail across the peninsula, where you trek from the wooded hills around Buzet to Ucka National Park, crossing three mountain peaks, culminating in fabulous views over the entire region from the rocky summit of Mount Ucka.
A good level of fitness is required for this trek and training is advised. The Croatian Mountain Trek involves long days and hilly terrain but in a short bite sizes adventure.

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.
£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.
£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.
£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families through the loss of a loved one.
