By booking this amazing guided tour, you will visit the north Croatian coastline, the magic peninsular of Istria, the birthplace of Croatian tourism Opatija, drive through Croatia’s largest port town Rijeka, walk through the smallest town in the world Hum and of course, the highlight of the trip, the Truffle hunt in Buzet.
Set off in a small group (max. 8 people) from the capital Zagreb and enjoy a scenic drive through the beautiful Croatian countryside. Our licensed driver will get you familiar with the itinerary for the day, as well as information about the sites you are visiting and the general history of Croatia.
Approximately two hours into the drive, we will reach our first destination – the town of Buzet. Here we will meet our guides and dogs for the truffle hunt. The truffle hunt is organized by a local family-owned business with 90 years of truffle hunting tradition. As keepers of the Istrian tradition, they pass on the secrets about truffle hunting, the forests, dog training, preparing authentic dishes and making top quality products.
You will hunt truffles with dogs, try out a 3 course meal made from truffles, taste some quality Istrian wine and have an unforgettable experience.
After a 20 min. drive from Buzet, we will reach the town of Hum. Welcome to the smallest town in the world. Hum is a small fort town that is built on top of a hill, surrounded by beautiful nature, which attracts people who enjoy magical and intimate places. Besides its amazing medieval architecture Hum is also known as the hometown of Biska (the local spirit).
After about a 40 min. drive from Hum, we will arrive in Opatija – the birthplace of Croatian tourism. Opatija is a charming coastal town full of rich history and culture. It is an oasis of beautiful locations, picturesque parks and breath-taking 19th century villas. Our guide will take you through the town and show you all the hotspots.
While driving away from Opatija, we will drive through Croatia’s largest port town Rijeka until we reach the fort of Trsat. This fairy-tale fort sits on the hill above Rijeka and overlooks the whole Kvarner region and the Istria peninsular. We will spend here enough time to grab a coffee, explore and enjoy the beautiful views of Croatia’s north coastline.
After enjoying the amazing wives from Trsat fort, we will head back to Zagreb. Just kick back, relax and enjoy the 90min ride back through the landscapes of Croatia’s mountainous countryside.
