Day 1st-Hiking

After leaving Zagreb with a short stop, the road takes us to the Risnjak National Park. Our first adventure is a hiking trip to Veliki Risnjak from Vilje, for which we need an hour and a half walk. The view from the top leaves the visitor breathless and it is equally beautiful in all directions.

We are resting on the meadow next to Schlosser's home, for the daring ones we will climb to the rocky peak of Risnjak where the beautiful views can reach to the Kvarner Bay, Istria and the Julian Alps.

IMPORTANT: Climbing to the top of Veliki Risnjak requires some experience. There are several cables on the marked trail to help with the climb. 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 trail to Schlosser's home is not technically demanding, so you can admire the beauty of the landscape from that location as well.

After descending from the mountain , we will swim at Lokvarsko Lake and have dinner at a nearby restaurant where we will try local specialties.

Day 2nd-Quad safari

After traditional breakfast, we head towards the source of the Kupa, which is a first-class hydrological phenomenon, and due to the beauty and wilderness of nature, it leaves a strong impression on the visitor.The spring itself is located within the boundaries of the Risnjak National Park near Razloge, where we park and after a forty-minute walk we reach the spring which is located below a hundred meters high vertical rocks.

It's time to increase the dose of adrenaline, the quads are waiting for us ready. A two-hour adrenaline quad ride follows where we explore the forests and beautiful views of Gorski kotar. After a full day in nature, dinner follows and we rest for a new day.

After breakfast we continue our journey on the river Kupa but this time we sit in boats and paddle into new adventures. Depending on the water level, we go on a rafting or kayak safari that lasts three hours on a section 7-10 km long with several rapids.

The first part of the tour is a bit calmer, you will have time to master the rowing techniques. Halfway we rest to freshen up, jump off a cliff and swim. The final part is a little more intense with more rapids where te fun is guaranteed.

After rafting follows a hearty Goranski lunch. The afternoon is reserved for a visit to the Lokvarka cave. The cave has 6 floors of which the first 4 are open to visitors. The rest of the day we rest and recharge our batteries for a new adventure.

Through the narrow canyon, the Jasle stream flows, which has made its way through for thousands of years to make this passage. Bridges are cut into the rock enabling the passage to the end of the Vražji prolaz where the Muževa hižica cave is located. Follows a break from biking in the mountain lodge Zeleni vir with coffee and pancakes.

Full of new experiences we return to Skrad by bicycle, where a local lunch follows. We will spend the afternoon walking through the Golubinjak forest park, where our Gorski Kotar adventure ends. In the evening we return to Zagreb happy and satisfied.
