High Point

This is a trail for cyclists willing to push themselves to the limit: on this route, you will first have to conquer the ascent from sea-level up to a height of 1,019 metres, and then the extreme descent down a gravel road. You start from Lovran and after a pleasant ride through typical Mediterranean landscape you reach Mošćenička Draga and Mošćenice, a medieval hilltop town whose history dates back to the time of the Liburnians. While ascending to the village of Sv. Jelena, you will enjoy magnificent views of the Opatija Riviera, Kvarner Bay and the islands. This panorama accompanies you all the way to the Bodaj pass, from which the entire Učka ridge can be seen. The route then leads to the village of Mala Učka, the highest rural settlement in Istria, then downhill to the Kvarner entrance to the Učka Tunnel and further towards Tuliševica. After reaching the Lovran–Lovranska Draga road, the route continues further on down to Lovran where, after 52 km, you come back to the starting point. You deserve all our congratulations and a pleasant rest in Lovran, the town of sweet chestnuts and cherries.
