Istria on E-bike

The tour begins with the transfer to Grožnjan, an adorable little hilltop town. Before the e-bike tour, stretching our legs along its cobbled streets will serve as a warm-up for our two-wheel adventure. Grožnjan awakens from its winter sleep with summer festivals of art and music, filling the air with a special kind of charm. That’s the reason why such a small town is home to so many ateliers and galleries.

The next on our schedule is a bike adventure on the Parenzana, a beautiful trail intersecting the mild Istrian landscape, which leads us all the way to Livade. Savour the serenity of verdant surroundings while cycling through tunnels and over bridges, passing through ancient forests and admiring the hidden chapels. A trail on which trains once used to roar will bring you to the foothill of Motovun.

Situated on a hillock, this charming little town overlooks the nearby terraced olive groves and vineyards. After an easy stroll through its narrow streets lined with closely built small houses evoking the town’s medieval past, follows the icing on the cake: we will close this pretty exciting and a little exhausting day in a local restaurant where you will have an opportunity to taste local delicacies such as truffles, paired with famous autochthonous Istrian wines. Content and satitated, we shall slowly head back to the starting point
