The highest mountain of Istria

Hiking Nature Park Učka is a great one-day trip from the sea to the top. Učka is one of the most northern landscape points of the Mediterranean and it rises along the coast of the northern Adriatic, in the continental part of Istria. Nature park Učka covers an area of 160 m2 and it was declared a nature park more than 20 years ago. Since then, it has become the favorite spot of alpinists, hikers, and tourists visiting Istria and Opatija.

Closeness to the sea and high altitude resulted in very diverse flora and fauna. Nature Park Učka is home to over 1,200 plant species, like the Učka bellflower, which grows only on Učka. There are more than 150 species of birds as well, such as the griffon vulture or the golden eagle.

The highest peak of the mountain and the Istrian peninsula is Vojak (1,401 meters), named after a stone tower that was built back in 1911. This outstanding lookout gives you amazing panoramic views of Istria. Hiking Nature Park Učka opens up views along the bay of the city of Rijeka, Platak, the northern part of the Adriatic and its islands, the Gorski Kotar region, and mountains of Velebit and Ćićarija. On a clear day, you can see even further; Venice, the bay of Trieste, the Julian Alps, and the Dolomites in Italy are in the palm of your hand.
