If you imagine your ideal vacation as kayaking or mountain biking, trekking through beautiful nature with a handful of adrenaline and challenges, then do not miss the greatest adventure in Lim Bay!

All lovers of sports, recreation, and adrenaline will set off for Vrsar on May 7 and 8, because the new Lim Bay Challenge awaits them at the Belvedere resort, which brings a lot of excitement and sporting adventures. This year’s edition has three races of various categories – Adventure Ultra, Adventure Light, and Trekking Challenger, and all those interested will be able to acquire new knowledge and skills at the sport climbing and Nordic walking workshops.


On the first day of the competition, Saturday, May 7, the adventure race of the Ultra category starts from an unknown location, and the competitors move through the beauties of the Vrsar archipelago, the Lim Bay, and its hinterland with the help of a compass and a map. The 65-kilometer-long adventure will alternate between running, cycling, and rowing, as well as a few more surprises that will allow participants to get to know western Istria in the most interesting way. For those who want adventure, but less intensity, there is also the Light category race, 35-40 kilometers long, which will capture all the beauties of this sport at a short distance, but still test your endurance and will.


In addition to races, a real adrenaline adventure awaits you in Kloštar, where a sports climbing course is held under the expert guidance of experienced climbers, and a Nordic walking workshop is scheduled for Saturday. From a professional and experienced trainer, learn the proper technique of Nordic walking, walking sticks, and posture, because it activates 90 percent of the muscles of the body, which is incomparable to classic walking without the use of sticks.

Sunday, May 8, is reserved for the trekking challenger, a race about 25 kilometers long, intended for all nature lovers, recreationists, trekkers, mountaineers, and serious athletes. All participants in the trekking race will get acquainted with the beauties of Lim Bay, find their way through the Kontija forest, enjoy the view of the lookouts above Vrsar and Lim Bay, and maybe meet a few Vikings. The race lasts 3 to 5 hours, depending on how physically fit the competitor is, and can be completed by any active recreationist or mountaineer who hikes for a couple of hours once a week or on a weekend.


The Trickeri Sports Association in cooperation with the Vrsar Tourist Board and the hotel company Maistra is responsible for this unforgettable adventure full of fun and challenges, and Vrsar once again becomes an unavoidable destination for all adventure lovers.

Maistra also provided a discount on accommodation for all participants so that all competitors could enjoy adrenaline-free adventures without any worries.

All those interested can apply until May 2 at The organizers note that special attention should be paid to the mandatory equipment.
