All about the MTB Parenzana – day tour.

After arrival to Buje you will start biking (on macadam) on the
legendary route of the Parenzana, the former narrow – gauge
railway line which penetrates deeply into the Istrian peninsula
connecting 33 Istrian towns between Poreč and Trieste,
located today on the territory of even three states. Passing
through magnificent rolling landscapes and lively Istrian
vineyards, it will became obvious why it was also know as the
wine railway. After passing through several tunnels, over old
bridges, you can stop on many fascinating view points
between the medieval town of Buje, Grožnjan and Motovun
before reaching Motovun. Stop in Grožnjan, the city of artist.

Our adult bicycles are quality hybrids, made by FELT. The model is the QX80 and we have a range of sizes to ensure there is a good match between you and your hire bike. These are very comfortable bikes, with quality components, ideally suited for roads and gravel tracks. The bikes have 27 gears, operated by easy-to-use gear shifters.

We supply helmets, hand pump, puncture repair kits, cycle computers (measuring speed, distance etc.).rear rack and bottle holder. We recommend that you bring a lightweight waterproof in case of showers. On longer tours, you might like to, wear cycling shorts or padded under-shorts, cycling gloves and cycling shoes (or stiff-soled trainers) as these will make your ride more comfortable. Sunglasses protect your eyes from bright light, and also from airborne insects – a particular hazard if you are speeding downhill on a bike

We suggest you book as soon as your plans are finalised as Istria is extremely popular over the summer months

Traditionally April/May/June and September/October  have always been the most popular time of year because the weather is better and on the road is less traffic. In July and August air temperature and humidity are higher and more traffic on the roads.

We use local taxis to transfer your baggage and they can normally move you, your bike and baggage to the next stop in case of emergency. Local buses can also sometimes take bikes
