Off-Road Tour in IstriaAfter planning to go off-road in Istria for a long time, I finally did this summer.
My tour guide was Boris at Camelus Adventures.
We drove on roads that I didn't even know existed in Istria. We drove on dirt roads, mud road, hills, plains, woods, grass fields, and even on river beds. The views were amazing!

Note that some of the other towns and most of the roads we drove on don't exist on Google maps. Luckily Boris had an off-road GPS that guided us throughout the trip.
Off-Road TipsDriving off the beaten path can be an adrenaline rush but it can also be dangerous.
Here are some tips on staying safe while having fun:
- Know the terrain: go with a guide or know the terrain so you don't get stuck or lost.
- Have the right car: don't attempt this with your rental car.
- Bring emergency gear: just in case your car gets stuck and you have to move on walking.
- Bring plenty of water, especially during summer.
