When you come to Rijeka, the first two things you notice are the sea and the Učka Mountain. This wonderful combination of the green and the blue contributes to the diversity and attractiveness of the region. If you're not in shape, you can reach Učka by car in less than an hour, up to the very top at 1,401 metres above sea level. This is the Vojak peak with a stone fort offering a view of the entire bay. In fine weather you can see even further to Italy and Slovenia.
Your experience of Učka will be complete if you go there on foot, following one of the many marked trails that begin along the Opatija Riviera. Get a map and embark on an adventure. Depending on your point of departure, your hiking tour can last for several hours. You can go to Učka by mountain bike, following the road from Rijeka, through Matulji. If you come here with your children, be sure to visit the children's educational path.
Free climbing, horseback riding, skydiving, caving... are just some of the activities you can do on Učka. During the summer months the temperature there is very pleasant, while in the winter make sure to choose the appropriate clothing and footwear. In the Učka Nature Park there are catering facilities and an information desk with promotional material and souvenirs.
