The Best of Istria Bike Tour offers a one-of-a-kind chance to explore the stunning coastline of the Northern Adriatic Sea — journeying from Italy to Slovenia and, finally, Croatia. Imagine yourself pedaling along sun-kissed shores, discovering charming seaside towns, and delving into the rich cultural history that abounds in this idyllic region.

The ideal Mediterranean climate allows you to cycle almost all year round, with early spring and late autumn offering perfect weather conditions and fewer crowds. If you prefer higher temperatures, summer invites you to cool off with a refreshing dip in the sparkling azure waters along the way.

The renowned Parenzana cycling path, following the former railway from Trieste to Poreč, provides an effortless and thrilling ride. You’ll alternate between well-maintained cycling paths, gravel tracks, and light-traffic roads, all while enjoying the coastal breeze. As you venture through tunnels and over bridges, you’ll be captivated by the quaint villages that dot the peninsula.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by Rovinj, one of Europe’s most romantic coastal towns, before concluding your Istria bike tour in the historic city of Pula — Istria’s cultural capital. An extra day allows you to fully immerse yourself in the fascinating surroundings.

This Istria bike tour offers a perfect blend of freedom, autonomy, and support. While we provide a comprehensive itinerary and directions, you have the flexibility to shape your own daily adventures. Our 24/7 support is always on standby to ensure a seamless experience. 

With an option to rent electric or standard bikes that cater to all fitness levels, there’s no excuse not to embark on this unforgettable journey.

Embrace the magic of Istria and create memories that will last a lifetime. The sooner, the better. Let the adventure begin!
