Let me introduce you to one of Croatia's lesser-known treasures, the Istria Peninsula and our new Culinary Adventure, Taste of Istra. Relish the world-class cuisine and remarkable wines of Croatia on this active culinary adventure among the farms, vineyards, and olive groves of Istria.
Bike, hike, kayak, and eat your way around this beautiful region with opportunities to explore cobblestone back streets, seaside promenades, and medieval hilltop towns. Included on this adventure is one my personal favorite activities, truffle hunting with adorable and rambunctious hounds! As if running through the forest with these pups isn't already a treat, enjoy the fruits of your labor afterwards with a glass of luscious Croatian vino (Zinfandel originated here). You'll also visit artisan cheese-makers and olive oil producers and make hand-rolled pasta with local families whose home-prepared meals reflect Croatia's multifaceted heritage.
Seasoned to perfection, our Croatian culinary adventure is designed for active lovers of food and wine, culture, history and the great outdoors. Oh, and adorable dogs! Give me a call if you have any questions about our new Croatia culinary adventure or check out all of our trips to Croatia below.
