Active in Nature
The sea is the perfect playground, and the question is which style you prefer the most. If standing straight is the case stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is the optimal choice. For those who prefer sitting best kayaking is always a better solution. And of course, if you like to experience how it will be with less gravity, then scuba diving can make a difference. No matter what type of sports, entertainment you choose, one thing is for sure, the next day you will be looking for more.
Water activities are a memorable and refreshing way to explore the island from the seaside without the rush. Don’t be surprised if suddenly you find yourself breathing better after taking in the salty sea air of Lošinj. There are other ways to be active in nature if you don’t have sea legs that allow you to explore the natural wonder of the island.
Osorščica is the first mountain on the islands of Adriatic to have attracted visitors, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne Rudolf Habsburg was surely one of the first, having climbed Osoršćica in 1887. Osorščica is the highest point of the island at 588 m above sea level with a breathtaking view of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago as well as colorful Mediterranean landscapes have always attracted numerous mountaineers and those who love nature. You’ll see all crystal blue lagoons hidden well away from the crowds.
Note: There are no poisonous snakes on the archipelago. According to the legend, it was St. Gaudentius, a bishop from Osor, who blessed the islands and banished all snakes. While the scientists are still trying to figure this out, we believe in the legend.
Bike Ride Adventure
Biking into town is a beautiful ride, starting from a place that is your home while on Lošinj, traversing along the seaside to reach the city center and have coffee and homemade ice cream. After, or before, there are miles of paths waiting to be discovered. The greatest thing of bike riding is that wherever you like or feel you can stop and have a swim.
Cycling through Lošinj exposes you to innumerable plant life each becoming their own little fragrant oasis. Very often, depending on the path you choose, the sweet scents change as you enter the special spaces of their worlds.
