Mount Medvednica is a very rare example of a nature park merging with a capital city. It is the area in which natural, cultural and historic values interlace and depend on each other. To the dwellers at its foot, this great beneficial mountain has been presenting wood and coal, salt and stone, silver and water and their mill – in general, the source of life and protection.
Experience Zagreb’s biggest nature park the way locals do it. This is a great option to go active during your stay in Zagreb. Escape the summer heat and city rush.

WHAT TO EXPECT
A beautiful ride through Zagreb’s mountain nature park. We pick you up and transport you to the top of the mountain where we start our tour visiting many viewpoints that offer views that go as far as Slovenia and Austria. Riding trails through untouched nature we have a chance to enjoy all that the mountain has to offer. And that is a lot. Mountain huts, 500 steps carved in stone by one man, a cave full of bats, a French mines and more. When we get hungry we will make a stop in one of many mountain huts for some lunch. All the food served on the mountain is typical traditional Croatian food homemade and cheap. If we have some more time to spare when we return from the mountain we can cover the beautiful city park of Maksimir.
