Guided Activities

My hiking group visited Linden Tree Retreat and Ranch, a beautiful, peaceful place in the Velebit Mountains in Croatia. We hiked to a “secret cave” in the “Enchanted Forest” where fairies are known to live. Others rode horses, went on other hikes, went on a jeep safari in the mountains, or walked in this beautiful place in nature… It was one of my most favorite places. Go there, it is incredibly relaxing, fun and breathtaking.

Winnetou trail

Jeep is another way to discover Velebit Mountain. Trips are guided and take you to some of the deepest corners of the mountain where wild animals roam free. The trip is a combination of off-roading and hiking. Simple but tasty lunch is prepared and served by rangers at Veliki Alan mountain hut.

Canoe Expedition

Glide along in a canoe on Lika River canyon. Enjoy the exercise when the wind is down and the river is still. Get your heart rate up while basking in the sunshine and splashing a paddle in the cool water. Depending on a water level, up to four prehistoric dams will have to be negotiated by taking your canoe on your shoulders while crossing a pile of ancient rocks. Keep your eye out for wildlife while paddling.
