One day hikes

Hiking in Učka Natural Park, Croatia

When I was in Croatia about 7 years ago, I desperately wanted to hike up to Vojak (1401m), the highest peak of Istria peninsula. I was convinced that one day I’d come back and stand at the top. Now, 7 years later, we were standing at the car park at the crossroad of 5047 road and a road called Cesta za Vojak, deciding whether to go up.


Hiking to Velki Vrh in the Karawankas, Slovenia

When you say “Slovenian mountains”, I reckon that most people imagine the breathtaking scenery of the Julian Alps. White peaks with green valleys, sprinkled with colorful dots of alpine flowers and lakes with water clearer than your bathtub.



Hiking to Baynes Peak in Salt Spring Island, Canada

If you ever wondered where all those hippies go when they get older? Come to Salt Spring Island and you’ll see. Apart from the hippies, the island is full of farms, lakes with naked people and positive energy. One of the best views you can get of the island’s beauties is from Baynes Peak (602m). So, we decided to check it out.


Hiking around Victoria, BC: Sidney Spit

Let’s be clear from the beginning: Sidney Island is not a hiking destination. If you try really hard and the tide is low, you can do a walk which is about 10 km long. But let’s face it, a lot of us go hiking because we want to get away, and in this respect, Sidney Spit is a very good place to get away from Victoria



Hiking around Victoria, British Columbia: Goldstream

Goldstream is possibly the most popular area around Victoria for hiking. The longest hike you can do there takes you through the Western side of the park all the way to a trestle bridge, down to the highway, up to Mt Finlayson and back to a bus stop. That’s the loop that I’ll be describing in this article.


Hiking around Sarajevo: from Nahorevo to Bukovik and back

Sarajevo is a cute capital, kind of my size of city. Big enough to have universities and museums but still small enough to see mountains from almost any place. The most convenient hike you can do there is to take a public transport bus 69 to Nahorevo. From there, you keep following the road and come to a place with a map and quite a few trails you can follow.


Exploring hiking trails in Norra Lunsens

Norra Lunsens is a nature reserve south of Uppsala, Sweden. It’s easily accessible by public transport (eg. bus stop Fjällfinas Kåta) and kind of a must for every hiker visiting the city.
