Trip itinerary (varies depending on walking pace and trail conditions)

Visit the magical Klek mountain where, according to local legend, witches gathered in ancient times and guarded the sleeping giant after whom the mountain got its name. Apart from them, the first Croatian professional mountaineers gathered on Klek already in the 19th century, and Stipe Božić - the most famous Croatian alpinist - took one of his first alpinist steps here.

After leaving Zagreb in the morning, we reach the village of Bjelsko around 10 o'clock. A hiking trail begins in the village that leads us to the peak, which is located at a height of 1,181 m. After a steep but very exciting climb to the very top of Klek with the help of cables and ropes*, we will enjoy the beautiful view, from where you can see Medvednica, Bjelolasica, the wooded Ogulin region, and on clear days the Julian Alps. We will take a short break in the mountain lodge**.

We continue by vehicle towards the Kamačnik canyon, where we will take a longer break for lunch and cool off from the hot summer days. After a lunch we enjoy a wonderful walk in one of the most beautiful river canyons in Croatia. In addition to the approx. 6 km long walk, we will definitely stop and play on the creative instruments inspired by the fauna that surrounds us. Who knows, maybe you will delight a forest fairy or an elf with your playing and decide that you are better off in the forest than in an urban environment.

Return to Zagreb in the late afternoon.

  • * The ascent to the Klek hill is somewhat steeper, but does not require any mountaineering experience.
  • ** The mountain lodge is only open on weekends.
