Arrival on the island of Losinj

Guests on Lošinj usually come to their vehicles, but there is still a possibility to get there by bus, plane or hydrofoil.

Catamaran lines

The best way to get to Losinj, without car, is speed boat (catamaran / hydrofoil) which departs daily from Rijeka to Cres and Mali Losinj. Be sure to purchase travel ticket earlier before you depart because the number of passengers is limited. The ticket is about 60 kuna (8,-EUR) per person to Mali Losinj. Quantity of luggage is limited, pets and bicycles unfortunately can not be taken on board.

Car-ferry lines

The islands Losinj & Cres are reached with ferries operated by Jadrolinija. Ferries have capacity for more than 100 vehicles, some even close to 200, depending on vehicle size and also 300-500 passengers. Navigation on route Valbiska - Merag and route Brestova - Porozina takes between 20 and 25 minutes. There is an air conditioned bar on each ferry and two outdoor decks with benches that you can enjoy during the ride. In the pre-season and off season ferryboats sail according to a schedule and during the high season when there is heavier traffic normally ferries sail continuously all day. Unfortunately reservations on the ferry lines Valbiska - Merag and Brestova - Porozina are not possible, while reservations on the ferry line Zadar - Mali Losinj is advised especially during high season.
