Bungalow Istria

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and is shared by three countries – Croatia, Italy and Slovenia, although most of the territory is covered by the Croatian country. The geographical features of the peninsula are very diverse. They include the Ucka Mountain Range, as well as the valleys of a few rivers including Rasa and Lim.

Book yourself a bungalow on the peninsula of Istria for a chance to explore one of the most beautiful areas in the Adriatic, as well as 3 countries all at once. The bungalows provide a nice relaxing atmosphere close to nature and away from crowded places. The peninsula will make you forget your problems in the same second you step foot on it and realize how immaculate its beauty is.

Istria nature

The Istrian peninsula has gained popularity in recent years due to the fact that it is becoming a more and more sustainable destination. There are around 70 ecological protected areas filled with hundreds of plant and animal species. Ucka Nature Park is definitely the most famous protected area there. This is the highest Istrian Mountain, which is characterized by stone walls and dozens of years of history in agriculture. The perfect example for a harmony between man and nature in coexistence.

A unique place to explore is the Brijuni National Park. This world-class attraction consists of 14 small islands in the Adriatic Sea, which are separated by the Istrian Peninsula. The islands have a long-established cultural and historical significance for Europe. The vegetation is truly spectacular. There are more than 100 sites of value, whether it be archaeological, cultural or historical.

The fjord of river Lim will steal your breath away with its deep colors. Lim is actually a flooded valley, which has taken the shape of a canyon. This is one of the places on the peninsula which is very unique! The canyon is a protected area with a combination of fresh and seawater, which has turned the canal into a fish paradise. At some places along the channel, the walls of the valley can reach a height of around 100 m.

Activities

Ucka Mountain allows you to really dive into Istrian nature through a long list of activities. Walking, hiking and cycling are options for some of the trails. Moreover, adrenaline enthusiasts can go rock climbing, free climbing, paragliding and even hand-gliding. If you decide to visit the Brijuni islands, don’t forget to wait for the sunset. Head to Kastrum for one of the most enchanting sunsets in the world! You can also cycle through the lush woods or if you prefer the water, rent a boat and sail from island to island.

Lim Valley offers boat excursions along the channel; otherwise, you can kayak by yourself. Hiking and cycling along the trails in the region will lead you to places deep into the forest, which will make you forget that there is a world out there! You can also visit Romuald’s Cave, which contains the oldest cave drawings in this part of Europe. It is believed that the cave was also inhabited by both animals and humans.
