If your taste buds are tantalising and you want to go on a culinary adventure, then you cannot leave without trying Kvarner scampi which are a specialty of the region, characterised by their bright red colour, thin shell and tasty meat. The entire Kvarner region is specific in that it has the largest concentration of restaurants of quality gastronomy in Croatia. Recommendations include a visit to the undiscovered culinary jewel named Volosko which is a small fishing village with much to offer, and the island of Krk is an ingenious culinary destination to be explored from top to bottom. Wishing to explore even more, then on the island of Rab you can try dried octopus or their very own Rab cake, whilst the mountain ranges of Učka and Gorski kotar are known for venison and frog specialties. A wide selection of restaurants is open year round along the gorgeous Opatija Riviera, and then Istria which isn’t far away is a separate gastronomic province of many attractions.
Adventure enthusiasts can choose from hiking on Mount Učka or skiing on Platak, it’s one of the few ski resorts where you can enjoy a view of the Kvarner islands from the top of the chairlift. Sledging and snowboardingis on from December to March whilst other months of the year are ideal for mountain biking. Fresh mountain air isn’t seasonal, it’s all year round! Fast speed car racing can be seen at the Grobnik race track, while those who prefer a slower pace can enjoy long walks along the various ‘Lungomare’, promenades in the area.
