Istra Outdoor for activity holidays in the peninsula

Istria and its natural beauty offer a wide range of opportunities for spending time in the outdoors. To help promote year-round activity holidays, a special department, Istra Bike & Outdoor DMC, was established, and in early 2015 a new brochure was published.

Istra Bike & Outdoor DMC was set up with the aim of helping to develop and promote activity holidays inn the Istrian peninsula by bringing together all necessary information in one spot.

Today, trekking, walking, hiking and running are some of the fastest growing forms of activity tourism. The Istra Trekking and Walking Project was responsible for designing and marking some 30 walking and trekking trails in the regions of Buzet, Kaštelir, central Istria and Buje and there are plans for making as many as 500 kilometres of new trails throughout the peninsula.

Istria also offers excellent opportunities for free-climbing, paragliding, kayaking and caving. Although mountain trails belong to a separate system with its own special markings, they will be presented together with other outdoor activities. 

Created by Istra Bike & Outdoor DMC and published by the Istria Tourist Board, the new brochure Istra Outdoor 2015 gathers together information about all of Istria’s bike trails, as well as its running and walking trails. The brochure also provides all other information you might need when visiting Istria, such as where to stay, and has a calendar of sports events to be held in 2015.
