Adventure on the crossroads of three worlds

Adventure awaits those who are prepared for it at the place where the sea air from the west meets the eastern plains and northern woods. Look for it among the river valley and rocky ground of tall forests and you will create memorable experiences. Taste life in full harmony with nature by engaging in adventure sports or simply enjoying the relaxing ambience.

In winter or summer, spring or autumn, Gorski Kotar will welcome you with plenty of possibilities to connect its tradition and its interesting environment with a completely different holiday experience. Hotels, B&B and private holiday houses, surrounded with thick forests, emit warmth and a mountain atmosphere.

Since ancient times this area has been a meeting point on the old trade route between the Croatian continent and its coast. When the inhabitants of Gorski Kotar lived by the forest and with the forest, travellers heading for the Croatian littoral or vice versa could stop for some refreshment in one of the family river sawmills, of which we have evidence today. Besides numerous old churches and chapels, memories are kept alive at various cultural events.

You can reach all the natural or cultural monuments by hiking or bike routes. The most famous one is the Gorski Kotar Cycling Transversal, which will take the fans of nature and mountain cycling through forest and local roads to cultural and historical attractions, as well as places with particular culinary specialties. All the districts in the region also offer an opportunity for long rides and all-day excursions in their surroundings. You can try fishing in the rivers Čabranka and Kupa, or develop the skills of photo hunting in the thick forests, searching for deer, bears, lynx and wolves. The popular winter destinations are Čelimbaša, Petehovac and Rudnik, where you can try downhill skiing or a biathlon on the attractive snow routes.
