Matulji
Discover the wonderful world of birds

If you enjoy observing birds and learning more about their mysterious world, we cordially invite you to visit Matulji and Mount Učka, for this area now offers some new and very interesting bird-watching tours!

Because of the diversity of landscapes and bird habitats over a relatively small area of Matulji and Mount Učka, birdwatchers here can enjoy spotting ca. forty bird species in different types of habitats – marine, forest, grassland, and rocky. Some of these birds live and nest here; others are just passing through the area on their spring and autumn migrations
Your hosts in Matulji have prepared for you two all-day and two half-day birdwatching tours that are available in English, Italian and French. Also included is the 'pick up and return' service in off-road vehicles to and from your place of accommodation. A tour normally includes a maximum of four people, but can also be organised for more people upon request.
If you are interested in a birdwatching tour in the Matulji area, there is a competition available until the 5th of May at the Matulji Tourism Office website (www.tzmatulji.hr), with a possibility of winning a weekend for two in Stancija Kovačići and a birdwatching tour.
Matulji is positioned only two kilometres from Opatija Riviera, right on the spot where the littoral zone meets its mountainous hinterland. This area combines all the advantages of a seaside holiday with the wide range of services based on recreational activities, tradition and excellent gastronomy in its wooded hinterland.
