Mount Medvednica that embraces the Croatian capital city Zagreb is a unique example of preserved nature at the doorstep of a large city. The name Medvednica could be translated as „bear mountain“ (medvjed means bear in Croatian). It is a favourite hiking, mountain biking and skiing destination for the citizens of Zagreb and its visitors, proclaimed nature park to protect its rich and diverse living world. Some of the highlights of this fun ride that deserve to be mentioned are amazing views over Zagreb and the region of Zagorje which is on the other side of the massif, as well as Medvednica’s dense forests and fresh air ideal to escape the summer heats and city hustle.

PROGRAM EXAMPLE

We will pick you up in your accommodation in Zagreb and drive to the mountain top (please contact us to arrange the exact pick up time and place).

The highest peak Sljeme (1033 m or 3389 ft) will be our startpoint. From there we will make our way down the wide paths through the forest, take breaks to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and have an optional picnic. Continuing down we reach the outskirts of Zagreb. The last part of the trip is through the forest Park of Dotrscina and finally Maksimir, one of the oldest public parks in Europe that is a real tresure for local people that come there to enjoy the forest, lakes and paths for recreation. Zagreb zoo is also there so you are welcome to stay and visit.
