Meeting point: Poklon pass
Description: The tour leads from the Poklon pass through littoral beech forest to the vantage point on Učka’s highest peak – Vojak (1,400 metres above sea-level), where visitors can use telescopes to admire the attractive panoramic view. In clear weather, one can see the Kvarner islands, the mountains in the Gorski kotar area, the Velebit massif, the Istrian peninsula, the Alps, Venice in Italy, and more. In addition to the numerous hikers and day-trippers, Vojak has recently become a very popular spot for paragliders and hang-gliders. Along the path that leads to the peak, visitors can see some typical karst features, such as sinkholes and ponors, refresh themselves with spring water, and learn more about the features of the Vojak summit area, which, together with the peaks of Plas, Suhi vrh and Argun belongs to the most environmentally sensitive parts of Učka Nature Park. The reason for this is the large number of rare habitat types with a series of rare, endangered, relict and protected plant and animal species.
The way back leads along the Plas educational trail, which passes over the peak ridge of Učka through a dense beech forest. Interpretation boards along the path inform visitors about the plant and animal life of Učka Nature Park.
Duration of the trekking tour: ca. 4:00 h
