On Foot Holidays - Istria Overview

A self-guided hike through little-known Istria (northern Croatia) starting in Motovun and working its way from hilltop village to hilltop village, before cresting Mount Ucka and reaching the Adriatic at the fishing port of Moscenicka Draga.

A journey to the Adriatic Sea

Istria lies in the very north of Croatia. A land of hills, meadows, vineyards and woods, of churches with medieval frescoes, and of the ancient Glagolitic script. You start in fashionable Motovun (of film festival fame), and wander through unspoilt hill country, staying at tiny pensions in three further hilltop villages, before turning south to a gentle assault of Mount Ucka. Over the far side of the mountain, walk down to the sea to spend two nights at pretty Moscenicka Draga, where the fish is fresh, the beaches uncrowded and the water sparkling and warm. If flying via Pula, consider spending a night or more in a boutique hotel in Fazana, a small fishing town just 12 km away from the airport. Walked by On Foot staff: Simon and Mary
