Trails of Green Istria

Get off the beaten track and enjoy walking through Istria's untouched interior and coastline. Often referred to as the 'Adriatic Tuscany’, Istria is sure to charm you.

Follow trails through magnificent rolling landscapes along sparkling turquoise coastlines and revel in the relaxed way of life. Enjoy stays in medieval hilltop villages, such as Buje, with its Venetian palaces, 15th century tower, Baroque church and ancient city walls. 

Olive groves and vineyards are never far away and you can sample the produce of the land, including the incredible local muscat wine of Momjan and the white truffles of Livade.
