Day 1.

The Istrian tour begins with truffles hunt and sightseeing of picturesque town Motovun.

Motovun, a small town located on a hill in central Istria is according to many one of the most beautiful and preserved medieval towns in Istria and beyond. Motovun is surrounded by a forest and is known for the legendary giant “Veli Jože“ and truffles, a very specific and aromatic mushroom.

The truffles story is interesting in every detail: their location, the dogs – truffle hunters and, of course,  great taste. After truffle tasting, the hosts will take you hunting for this delicious aphrodisiac. 

You will have lunch at a restaurant in one of the most beautiful wineries in Istria.

An extraordinary Istrian restaurant with local cuisine based on gastronomic heritage of the region with a modern touch, made with locally grown ingredients. After lunch experienced specialists will take you to a professional cellar tour and help you experience the real taste of Istrian wines.

You are based in 4 star hotel. The hotel is located on the beautiful beach, a 10-minute walk from the center of Novigrad. Use the afternoon for a walk by the sea or relax at the wellness center.

In the evening, we will surprise your palate with the local specialties of an excellent hotel restaurant.


Day 2.

Visit the olive grove and the oil mill.

You will enjoy olive oil tasting from one of the awarded Croatian olive oil producers. The oil itself is recognized as one of the TOP 15 olive oils in the world by Flos Olei, the Italian “Bible” for olive oil producers. 

After olive oil tasting and a glass of delicious local wine, we leave for Grožnjan and enjoy a guided walking tour for half an hour.

Grožnjan is known as the city of artists, surrounded by green hills and magical white soil, it is a must-see destination for those who want to discover the treasure chest of Istria.  From May you can attend frequent concerts of classical music, a jazz-festival, an art event and numerous exhibitions.

Lunch will be at a wonderful restaurant  with an enchanting view of Momiano and the surrounding vineyards belonging to the top winemaker whose wines we will taste with the meals. A visit to his cellar is organized after lunch. A special feature of this restaurant are the fresh ingredients which are sourced from unspoiled nature, grown in the restaurant’s  own garden or purchased from the selected local growers.



Day 3.

 Visit the Lim Channel and the Shellfish Farm.

Whether you are a nature lover, a passionate gourmand or an admirer of mysterious historical stories, the Lim Channel is the right place to enjoy Istria.

Although many call it a fiord, the Lim Channel is actually a submerged karst canyon. Once upon a time, the imposing sea bay was a valley through which the Pazinčica River flowed, running to the sea. Turbulent geological history has run its course – the sea penetrated the valley and completely changed the landscape. Due to many submarine springs, the sea here is of reduced salinity and is extremely rich in plankton. The Lim Channel is therefore known as a fish and shellfish farm. 

After enjoying the nature, treat yourself with fresh seafood in one of the Lim’s restaurants.

Now you are ready to visit one of the most famous Croatian winemakers.

Visit the wine cellar of one of the most awarded Croatian winemakers: experienced specialists will take you to a professional cellar tour and help you experience the real taste of Istrian wines known all around the world. 

After wine testing we will visit an Istrian prosciutto manufacturing facility. But at this family farm there is so much more to prosciutto than meets the eye… 

Istrian prosciutto is an authentic product and nowhere in the world is the prosciutto produced as it is done in Istria. This family farm, except prosciutto, produces pork loin, sausages, bacon, steadying (dry rack) and homemade bacon.  Friendly hosts will greet you with an aperitif and tasting cured meats and olive oils telling you the story of the production of Istrian prosciutto.
