TJ and Tim from Huck Finn collected us from Rovinj and drove us to Poreč, where we were based for three nights on the first stage of the Huck Finn Istria Multisport trip. It turned out that we were the only participants, and it was in essence a private tour.
Poreč is another lovely town on the coast of Istria, similar in some ways to Rovinj in that it has a major Venetian influence, though there are also Roman remains as well. Unlike Rovinj, you can walk around the edge of the peninsula old town.
We had a lovely room in a newly renovated building next to a restaurant.
The first day’s kayaking started near the Huck Finn offices and included landing on an small island where gulls were nesting and there were various herbs, then on to a larger island with an hotel, and finally kayaking around Poreč. As usual, Lindsey wore her Spirit f the Spey hat for the kayak trip.
