We take you on an adventure off the beaten tourist path – hiking, kayaking and cycling in the interior’s amazing untouched wilderness!
There is no better place to spend hot summers days then in the mountains and on the rivers of the Croatian Highlands (“Gorski Kotar”). This area has so much to offer, but still only few people have discovered its secrets. We take you rafting/kayaking on the Mreznica and Kupa rivers, on an easy bicycle tour along the river shore and, of course, to the famous Plitvice Lakes National Park. Your guide will adjust activities and routes according to your abilities and wishes. After the experiences of each day, relax back at the hotel, enjoy your delicious traditional Croatian dinner or go for a short swim in the nearby river. The green heart of Croatia is waiting to be discovered – by you!

You will stay in an idyllic 3-star hotel in the Dobra River valley. Each room includes its own bathroom and shower, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and TV.
Every day you will have a buffet breakfast and a dinner menu consisting of famous Croatian specialties at the hotel. For lunch, some days we will stop at a local restaurant. When our trip takes us too far away from the restaurants, or if you prefer to bring lunch with you, you can order a lunch package for (usually) 10€/package at the hotel. Besides, we will make sure to stop at local stores to stock up on snacks.
A pick-up at the Zagreb or Rijeka Airport is included in the prices. Please ask us for pick-ups at Pula, Zadar or Split Airport, which we will provide for a surcharge. We can either drop you off at Zagreb or Rijeka Airport, or arrange a place more suitable for your travel plans, if you wish.
You can, of course, also arrive in your own vehicle.
