Day 1st

We start from Zagreb, with short stops we arrive in Risnjak National Park. The first adventure is a hiking trip to Veliki Risnjak from Vilje, for which we need an hour of gentle ascent to the mountain lodge. We rest in the meadow next to Schlosser's home, for the more daring it is possible to climb to the rocky peak of Risnjak. We will enjoy the beautiful sights from 1528 m above sea level on Kvarner Bay, Istria and the Julian Alps.

IMPORTANT: Climbing to the top of Veliki Risnjak requires a certain experience. There are several cables on the marked path that helps the ascent. For people with a lack of experience, without suitable footwear and those who are afraid of heights - it is not recommended to climb to the very top. The path to Schlosser's house is not technically demanding, and you can already admire the beauty of the landscape from that location.

After descending from the mountain, the road leads us towards lake Lokvar which, although it is artificial, fits so perfectly into nature that it seems as if it has been there for centuries. In the warmer months, we can even swim. In the evening we rest for a new day full of new adventures.
