Diversity is the perfect word to describe Opatija's natural landscape as well as the multitude of active holiday opportunities available on its riviera, which thanks to its mild climate, can be enjoyed all year round. The alluring sea waves will invite you in for a dip, or to try sailing and SUPing, while the mountain climbs and long walks from the coast to the top of Učka will give you the chance to explore the breathtaking nature. The steep cliffs challenge even the most experienced free climbers - the sky is the limit as far as what you can experience!

However, even that line can be crossed, as there are few sensations comparable to the adrenaline rush felt by brave adventurers who dare to take off from the top of Učka carried by a kite or parachute – which will let you see the whole Kvarner and Istrian region below if you dare!

If you prefer to stay on the ground, take advantage of all the "blue" lungomare promenade and its "green sister", the Carmen Sylva forest promenade, have to offer. Ride on open pastures under Poklon or take a peek at the fascinating underground caves.

Get to know Učka through the variety of sports activities that take place on the slopes during Outdoor Day, which is part of the Učka Nature Park event held in early May, as well as the King of Učka cycling race at the end of September.
