Not far from Buzet you will find two small canyons that the locals call Blizanci (Twins). The somewhat longer and bigger one was formed by the river Pivka, which flows into the course of the river Mirna.
The second canyon was formed by the river Mirna itself. The canyons are parallel to each other and surrounded by rock barriers surround them. The surroundings are beautiful, especially if there is water. Even though the city of Buzet is close by, you get the feeling of being in the wilderness.
The first climbing sectors were created in the canyon of the river Pivka. While work went on in the riverbed of Mirna, the pathway to the canyon was open, which made access to the cliffs there much easier, so the routes in this canyon are being equipped as well. Bit by bit, the Buzet Canyon is becoming Istria's largest climbing site.
The rock face in both canyons is mostly overhanging; however, there are also vertical slabs and you can find routes of various grades of difficulty. The orientation of the sectors also varies, making climbing in the Buzet Canyon possible all year round.
During Summer, you can climb in the Befana and Slap sectors. Đoser sector is in the sun during the morning, while Pengari sector is in the sun during the afternoon.
Note: The area is protected as a source of drinking water.
Accommodation: There is no campsite nearby. The closest one is at Raspadalica. You can find a list of rooms and apartments in the vicinity on the web page of the Tourist Board of Buzet (www.tz-buzet.hr).
