Destinations: Istria, Croatia
Charming towns with winding streets on top of the hills, a wide array of delicious culinary delights, various opportunities to actively explore the land, and warm, welcoming people are just a few of numerous reasons that make Istria a perfect incentive destination.
Croatian Istria is the largest peninsula on the Adriatic coastline. It boasts lush green hills, covered in vineyards and olive plantations, on top of which are picturesque little towns with narrow winding streets, charming Istrian houses made of stone and wood, and colorful shops filled with local products. Among those towns, one can find the world smallest town Hum, listed by Guinness World Records.
Foodies will be delighted by a visit to family wineries and olive-oil producers, where home-produced solid and fluid delicacies will be served together with fresh locally produced cheese, meat products and homemade bread.
What is more, Istria is one of the rare world destinations where the white and black truffles are found, so the truffle lovers will surely enjoy dishes prepared with this valued underground funghi that some call the “Istria’s gold”. Smaller incentive groups may even experience a truffle hunt in the northern woods of the peninsula.
Finally, Istria offers a unique experience for sporty groups in search of an active stay and some adrenaline. You can travel in the hidden natural paths with a buggy, go on a cycling tour with a local guide that will take you to spots with a breath-taking view or opt for horse riding in the woods, regardless of your previous experience with and on the horse. Moreover, the adrenaline seekers will enjoy an adrenaline park, featuring (among other attractions) a “human catapult” and a giant 11-metre high swing, or cross the Pazin canyon with a zipline.
