Trail no. 212 leads from the western Istrian coast towards its central part and is ideal for those who are looking to discover the smallest, hidden sites and encounter their magic and fragrances. Valleys, bays and cultivated fields are part of this itinerary that ends in the historical part of Rovinj. After starting at the Valdibora parking, where we can also find the finish line, the trail continues in the direction of Rovinjsko Selo and further ahead towards Kanfanar. The trail then continues to the mysterious Dvigrad and the panoramic view of the Lim Bay. The advantage of this route is the lightly trafficked road it covers enabling less experienced riders to enjoy the view at a modest speed, without, at the same time, having to compromise, regular road traffic.
This trail is classified as moderately demanding with a length of 81.2 kilometres.

The entire route is ridden on an asphalted road, and the estimated time to complete it is from 2½ to 3 hours, depending on the speed you choose.
