Half-Day Kayak, Cliff, & Cave Tour

Half-Day Kayak, Cliff, & Cave Tour

star-5
The day will commence at Valsaline Beach, where you’ll get to know your guide and familiarize yourself with the day’s program. Start rowing toward the famous Tarzan cliff — a place only accessible by boat. After around 45 minutes of paddling, spend 30 minutes relaxing and enjoying the scenery. The adventurous can try out diving and the extra-adventurous can even jump off the cliff into the water. Then, head to the famous Pula’s cave, entering one at a time. Leave the kayaks in the cave while you tour the area. With some more free time, simply enjoy your natural surroundings, dive into the blue waters, or jump from a 10 or 12-meter cliff. Your local guide will happily answer any remaining questions, and of course, teach, explain, and show you the most important things when it comes to cliff-jumping and diving. The tour will end back at Valsaline Beach. Look through and take home some of the photos and videos taken throughout the day.

Truffle hunting adventure

Truffle hunting adventure

star-5
Truffle is an unusual subterranean fungus. There are two important varieties of truffles: white truffle (Tuber Magnatum) and black truffle (Tuber Melanosporum). Both of these can be found in the Motovun forest located in the valley of the Mirna River. Even though truffles can be found elsewhere, Motovun truffles are considered to be of the highest quality.Truffles live 10 – 30 centimetres underground, which makes it hard to find, and that’s why trained dogs are used in the truffle hunting activities. If you came to visit Motovun, you should not miss out truffle hunting adventure. Svilicic family have more then forty years of experience in truffle hunting. When you experience truffle hunting, you will come to realize why it is an internationally appreciated phenomena. To spice up your encouter, we offer various truffle dishes and a unique tasting experience with a glass of famous Motovun red or white wine. We will also offer Istrian prosciutto and a wide choice of other Istrian dishes.
