Nature Park Ucka is comprised of the Ucka massif, and part of Cicarija, with a total area of 160km2 on the east side of the peninsula of Istria. The highest peak of the Učka massif is Vojak (1396m) where a tower was placed, and functions as a lookout point and souvenir shop. The breathtaking view from the tower looks upon the islands Krk, Losinj and Cres, Gorski kotar and Istria peninsula. While enjoying the beautiful view, you can try specialities with chestnuts and asparagus. Učka is rich with diverse flora and fauna, where species such as the Ucka little bell (Campanula tommasiniana) and the rare griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus). The century old forests are significant, where chestnut and beech trees grow, and many types of plants that have healing agents.

Many man made findings, have been located on the premises of the park, and evidence in caves testify to settlements from antiquity. Temporary living during the summer months left its mark; findings of primary constructions located on the massif, were used as shelters for sheep, and temporary shelter for humans.

There are different activities offered in the park, for adventure seekers: many mountain biking trails, rock climbing (the most popular being Vela Draga), paragliding, trekking, and horseback riding in the fresh air and beautiful country side.

At the Ucka nature park, there are a few taverns where domestic specialties can be tried, souvenirs bought and tickets to the park bought. The road from Veprinca (a small town located about 12km from Opatija) leads to the top of Ucka.
