Wild asparagus is a wild plant that is harvested on the island from March to June, meaning that only those who visit the island of Krk in the spring have the opportunity to taste this delicacy!

With the arrival of spring, the island of Krk takes on its distinctive green color, and the scent of flowers slowly comes through the salty smell of the sea. The only way to witness this is to explore the island by going on one of the hiking or biking trails.
