Overview
Rural Istria is rich with medieval hilltop villages, vineyards, olive groves, meadows and forests – the area is very pleasant for touring on a bike. Our route includes Oprtalj, Groznjan and Motovun charming hillside towns where we will have time for a short walk and exploring. We will also cycle the Parenzana, an old railroad bed now known as a mecca for cyclists. As we travel down to the Mirna River Valley, we will enjoy magnificent views of the countryside from the trail. This is a 42km round trip and ends at the starting point. Most of the route follows paved roads with little traffic, but part is on packed dirt and gravel. The trip is a moderate level of difficulty. There is an option to do an E-bike version of the trip for those who are not avid cyclists and/or for those who want to make this cycling experience more relaxing.

My husband and I booked a private Sunset Kayak trip, and it was fantastic! Our guide Luka was amazing and as we kayaked around Rovinj and the islands talked us through the history of the island, and culture. Everything was at a good pace, and plenty of stops to enjoy the epic scenery. One of the stops was Kaharina island, and cliff jumping, not for the faint hearted but a great way to cool off! Sunset was seen from the kayaks as well as a spot for a couple of glasses of local wine. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the trip, and were very grateful to Luka for finding my husbands glasses the next day when we realised we left behind! Cannot recommend highly enough - if you like to be on the water, and get to see some unspoilt views of Rovinj then this is the trip for you.

Amazing trip around poreč with the kayak. Our guide Luka could tell us a lot about the history of Istria and Poreč. The kids really enjoyed it!

We had a spectacular experience with Terra Magica Adventures! On our last night in Rovinj we had a wonderful sunset kayak trip on the open sea around the old town and Catherine Island with our guide Luka. It was just us as a couple and the guide as a large group had cancelled. However, this was not a problem and the guide Luka gave us a great (private) tour experience. Besides the delightful kayak trip, he gave us extensive information about the history of Rovinj, a hike on Katahrina island with the possibility of cliff jumping. If you're really lucky, you might be able to spot dolphins! All in all, an awesome experience we won't forget!

Safe kayaking on the sea with a good workout for shoulders that have been hanging over a home pc for much too long... ROVINJ is a very charming peninsula town built by Venetians, on the kayak you can admire it from all sides while having the waves massaging your lower back. Our Kroation guide Luka was a calm and very friendly guy, he brings you steadily and safely to all nice places, tells you some history about the town in well-spoken english, takes in account the wishes of his guests (our boys 11, 13 and 16y wanted to do cliff jumping, so we went there via a short cut and spent more time there), educates us about sea life etc. We were all seated in the same type of stable and sea-worthy kayak, which can hold 1, 2 or 3 persons. Gear (including safety jack) was all pretty new and perfect. Want to do it again !!
