A fun day spent in nature!

Istria is the home of the second largest white truffle ever found!
Experience Istria in a different way. Spend a few hours truffle hunting with trained dogs, taste truffle products and enjoy the surroundings!

After the hunt, you will get to see the city of Motovun and the smallest city on earth - Hum.

Last stop before heading back to Zagreb is Opatija, often called the pearl of the Adriatic. In the past it was a summer and winter destination for the Austro-Hungarian nobility because of its mild Mediterranean climate, and today it is a place of luxury hotels, former villas and private summer residences.
