WALK SUMMARY

 Walks in lovely, wooded hill county, between ancient hill towns.

This is mellow, varied and intriguing walking, rather than Alpine fireworks. And none the worse for it.

After a satisfying day's walking, enjoy good food in unspoilt old towns.

Hiking trail that takes you through the Croatian and Slovenian border. Our friends the Oranginas walking group from the Netherlands followed. Here's what they had to say:

"Six trails through a scenery that can be compared with Tuscany: hills up to 500 meters, the typical Istrian villages on top, the remains of the different rulers, the olive groves and vineyards, pine forests and absolute great panorama's. Although the coast is considered the most popular destination for foreign visitors, for walkers the mainly unspoiled and quiet inlands are more worthwhile."

THANK YOU ORANGINAS! See their full thoughts here. 

On Foot Holidays (www.onfootholidays.co.uk) do an excellent-looking Istrian walk.
