Mount Učka - Hills to Sea private hiking trail

Mount Učka - Hills to Sea private hiking trail

Besides your hiking equipment, don’t forget to take your swimsuit. Your guide will meet you in front of your accommodation. You will be on the trail no later than 9:00.

The trail starts at Poklon (922 m). The route will lead through forest and meadows until reaching a 1.012 m high hilltop sloping down into the sea. On the way to this point (Babin Grob), you will pass through the beautiful landscape of Učka Nature Park.

On the hilltop, gaze at the rich opening before you, and enjoy a picnic in the shades of the trees. From Babin Grob, you will take a trail descending via the east slope of Učka down to Medveja, a strip of coast with a beautiful beach.

A definite highlight is to enter the sea right after the hike. If you consider yourself a die-hard outdoorsman, you can swim in the sea in the wintertime as well. It is a vigorous experience!

Please note, some previous downhill hiking experience is recommended. The lower section of the route has hundred-year-old stone stairs on our way down to the coast.

After the hike is over, a van will take you to the tavern offering home-made specialties including ravioli, tortellini, wild-caught fish, and food made from olives, figs, and other Mediterranean fruits. Enjoy dinner. And the spectacular view.

There is no backbreaking tempo, and you rest a lot. Special attention is paid to scenic routes and good food. Return to the hotel.
