Ucka Mountain Hiking Tour
The tour starts with a transfer to Poklon, saddle between two hills from where the hiking trail starts. The trail goes on the top of Učka mountain which is biggest mountain in Istria with altitude of 1401m. From the top it goes all the way down to sea level in Lovran. The path is covered by oak and chestnut forests that give pleasant freshness in hot summers. The very summit of Ucka (Vojak) is worth climbing for stunning panorama. The panorama of Kvarner bay includes sea and coastal towns, as well as the mountains in the background: Obruc, Snjeznik and Risnjak on the Western side; the whole Istra peninsula will lie in front of you. Sometimes, if visibility is good, you have a view towards to Venice and the Alps on the North side. The hike continues down following the trail through the forest with magnificent panorama on Kvarner Bay and islands. After 3-3.5 hour of hiking we will reach Lovran where the bus will be waiting for you and transfer you back.
