Cycling on Kvarner
Discover the region in a different way

The bicycle, this increasingly popular means of getting about for environmentally aware travellers, is the ideal vehicle to learn more about Kvarner and a perfect recreational opportunity. The region awaits you with ca. twenty excellent and interesting cycling paths.

Cycling professionals have designed 19 bike trails that encompass all parts of the Kvarner region: Opatija Riviera, Rijeka and surroundings, Crikvenica Riviera, Novi Vinodolski Riviera, islands of Lošinj, Krk, Cres and Rab, and the wooded Gorski kotar area. Each of these areas awaits with interesting and well-tended bike trails, including sightseeing, tasting original local specialities and much more.    
In addition to the trails in individual areas, cycling enthusiasts have also designed one route that includes the whole Kvarner region. This 7-day tour starts in the hinterland of Opatija Riviera and continues in Gorski kotar, including visits to some of the most interesting places and natural wonders of the area. On the 3rd day, the cyclists return to the coast and continue to the island of Krk via the Krk Bridge, to spend the next few days visiting the islands of Krk, Rab, Cres and Lošinj. On the last, 7th day of the tour, they return to the starting point in Mošćenička Draga. This cycling tour is extraordinarily interesting and gives its participants the opportunity to discover the Kvarner region from a whole new perspective, which makes it attractive even for those who know Kvarner very well and think that the area has no secrets for them any more. The cyclists confirm: it is far more beautiful to travel by bike!
