If you want to put an end to monotony and try something more adventurous, this is the perfect opportunity for you. It is right up the alley for fans of SUVs, wild scenery, stunning nature and thrills. The steep mountain paths, the murmur of the waterfalls, the beauty of nature, the uncharted terrain, as well as homemade food and the simplicity of rural life beckon you on a wild adventure. All this is available during your stay in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia and a charming Central European metropolis. We are certain that you won't be able to forget the time when you overcame your fears and found the courage that was hidden within yourself all along.

We recommend that you dress appropriately for the season, wear comfortable clothes and look up the weather forecast in advance.
If you happen to take the ride in the famous Zagreb funicular at around noon, don't be startled when the Grič cannon in Lotrščak Tower is fired, which is a true Zagreb tourist attraction. This just means that it is noon sharp – and in fact it is so precise that the people of Zagreb set their watches to the cannon shot.
Arrival in Zagreb and check-in at the hotel. We suggest that you take a short break and then take a stroll through the city. The Tuškanac park-forest is situated in the centre of Zagreb and just east of the cathedral you will find the Ribnjak Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the city, which got its name from a man-made pond that used to be located here.
However, if you prefer wheels to walking, we will take you on a ride in the environmentally- friendly electric replica of the old Ford T automobile. The car tour lasts about an hour and includes the Upper and the Lower Town.
After breakfast, you will have a unique tour of Zagreb on Segways. The tour begins with a short Segway tutorial and practice followed by the ride along the sidewalks and through the parks of Croatian capital.
A professional guide will share with you the best the city can offer from its history and culture, atmosphere and everyday life. We will introduce you to more than 20 important historic sites and sights of the „Green Horseshoe“ and the Upper town. You'll also find out more about Croatian inventions, such as necktie, electricity, mechanical pen or electric toothbrush, how Zagreb got its name, the legend of the Stone Gate and more. After the tour time at leisure.
Following breakfast you will be leaving the hotel at 9am in a 4X4 luxury SUV that will take you to Samobor and onto the “old road“ towards the more remote parts of Žumberak. The Žumberak Nature Park, which is situated in the picturesque Rakovica valley, is the site of the Divlje Vode (Wild Waters) Bio Park, where you'll get to experience nature at its wildest, achieve primordial harmony with nature and take in the traditional homely atmosphere and scents of the Wild West. Welcome drink (rakija).
Also you will visit nearby Old Town of Žumberak, a Celtic cemetery, a Roman necropolis and picturesque valleys with waterfalls. At cca. 11am you will arrive at the prehistoric archaeological site of Budinjak, which, together with the nearby Roman archaeological site in Bratelji, makes up the Archaeological Park, which you will pass through if you take the “Path of the Princes“.
During your break from sightseeing, you will have a typical country “gablec“ (snack). Afterwards, you will continue your drive and at approximately 12:30, you will reach the Sopot waterfall, Mount Žumberak's largest waterfall and one of the largest waterfalls in Croatia. The waterfall is situated 700 m above sea level on one of the initial forks of the Kupčina River, it is 40 m tall and consists of three cascades.
You will have a homemade lunch in the village of Sošica, after which you will head to the Brisalo waterfall in the deep valley of the Slapnica River, which is occasionally referred to as a canyon due to its depth. The waterfall is located on the tributary of the Duboki Potok River and falls from a 15 m high travertine cliff. During floods, it creates a unique ambience at its base, which is shaped like an amphitheatre.
You depart and pass through remote and semi-abandoned villages on the way to the valley before heading back to Zagreb via Jastrebarsko.
Breakfast and check-out. If you still have some spare time left, take a ride on the Zagreb funicular, which connects the Lower and the Upper Town at a length of 66 m, which makes this the shortest cable car ride in the world!
