Zagreb Mountain Hiking, Medvednica NP, Croatia


  • Enjoy beautiful nature and fresh air at the doorstep of the Croatian capital
  • Hike up to the highest peak Sljeme at 1033 m (3389 ft) and admire amazing views over Zagreb and the region of Zagorje on the other side
  • Adventure yourself outside the usual tourist routes and learn things about Zagreb region that you won’t find in tourist guidebooks

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 favorite hiking, mountain biking and skiing destination for the citizens of Zagreb and its visitors. It has been proclaimed nature park to protect its rich and diverse living world. Some of the highlights 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.


This hiking Croatia day trip starts with pick up in your Zagreb accommodation and drive to the bottom of the mountain. We can choose between numerous trails such as Leustekova, Gipsova or even Bikceviceva that leads up the the mountain hut Puntijarka and to Sljeme peak. The view over the hilly landscape of Zagorje region situated on the other side of the massif is amazing. It is possible to add some urban exploring with optional visits to medieval fortress Medvedgrad (every day) and medieval mine Zrinski or cave Veternica (weekends and holidays), with a supplement. We will definitely have time for a coffee break and optional homemade meal in one of the huts before heading down a different route to explore more of the Park’s beauties.
