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.

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.

Day-by-day itinerary

Day 1

Exploring Zagreb

Arrival in Zagreb and check-in at the hotel. We suggest that you take a short break and take a stroll through the city, which welcomes you with an inscription on its coat of arms that shows the outline of the city with three white towers and wide open city gates. If you want to take a walk through nature, 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 suggest that you go on a ride (surcharge) in the environmentally-friendly electric replica of the old Ford T automobile. Departure from the hotel. You will recognise your driver by his old hat and black cape. He will take you on an unforgettable ride through time to the days when the first cars hit the streets of Zagreb. The car tour lasts about an hour and includes the Upper and the Lower Town. Return to the hotel.

tip

The first driver's license in Zagreb was issued to a woman, the highborn Alma Balley.

Day 2

Segway Tour, Adrenaline Park

After breakfast, we have a unique tour of Zagreb on Segways. Don't worry, the tour is appropriate for all ages! After a short Segway tutorial, you will receive a safety helmet and then go on the tour of the city in the company of a professional tour guide. You'll find out all about how Zagreb got its name and what purpose the cannon in Lotrščak Tower serves.

Afterwards, we'll take you to Zagreb Cathedral, show you the scale model of Zagreb and then we'll head to the renowned Tkalčić Street, St. Mark's Church, take a ride to Lotrščak Tower and visit many of Zagreb's most famous attractions.

In the afternoon we will go to the Party Land Adrenaline Park in the vicinity of Zagreb, which covers approximately 20,000 m2. This is the perfect place for quad bike or buggy rides. Try out one of the two different quad bike tracks.

You can take a break after a 45-minute ride and then show off your military skill in a game of paintball or test your sharpshooting skills by shooting targets with a rifle. You will have deserved lunch, so we will take you to a nearby restaurant for a traditional homemade lunch (turkey from Zagorje with mlinci - flatbread, salad, bread, baked “štrukli“ – pastry filled with cottage cheese, drinks are not included). Return to the hotel.

tip

"You can never have too much fun" is the motto of the Partyland, the state-of-the-art adrenaline park.

Day 3

Adventure outside the city

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 located in the vicinity are the Old Town of Žumberak, a Celtic cemetery, a Roman necropolis and picturesque valleys with waterfalls. At cca. 11h we 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“. Afterwards, we will continue our drive and at approximately 12:30, we 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 we 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.

We depart and pass through remote and semi-abandoned villages on our way to the valley before heading back to Zagreb via Jastrebarsko.

tip

We recommend that you dress appropriately for the season, wear comfortable clothes and look up the weather forecast in advance.

Day 4

Zagreb funicular

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! If you happen to take the ride 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.
