RESPONSIBLE & SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch is located inside Velebit Mountain, specifically inside Velebit National Park. In 1978 park was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The spirit of the Biosphere Reserve governs Retreat & Ranch operations and forms the backbone of all policies and sustainable development. Linden Tree is committed to exist in Velebit Mountain in an entirely sensitive and environmentally sustainable manner. To that extend we developed a concept that puts human in the center of attention in order to create a balanced and integrated living systems for all creatures. We call this concept CIDER, which is an acronym for Community, Integrity, Development, Evolution and Responsibility. We reinvest 5% of the profits toward different programs we run or sponsor in the area.
Activities that we offer at the Ranch on a weekly basis and that focus on our core values include but are not limited to: animal watching and tracking, hiking, caving, jeep safari which are focused on nature conservation. Wagon ride, which is focused on community involvement. Several of our activities (just to mention peace pipe evening and panel discussion) are created to inspire cultural exchanges.
You as our guest are not a mere spectator but rather an active participant. You absorb a wealth of knowledge and wisdom and you leave some of your own behind. So that Linden Tree can keep thriving as a cultural exchange crossroad, conservation wisdom bank and community building leader.
We are also able to create once-in-a-lifetime transformative itineraries focused on any of these aspects. Reserve your spot now and let the journey begin.
