Into the Forest


Into the Forest


INTO THE FOREST

explore the city the way the locals do and immerse yourself in the history... and the woods.


Zagreb is charming. Harmonious architecture, urban vibe, bursting with creativity.... but there must be more to Zagreb than it's city center, right? After all, within the narrow city center you can already feel the influence of tourism. How about a unique local experience that will change your perspective of the city?

Do you know that people from Zagreb enjoy visits to their beautiful green mountain called Medvednica? Do you know they simply adore walking around their city until it takes them to places they haven't even been aware of? That's what we'd like to offer through this tour. We want to take you to our favorite places on the north side of the city, far away from the crowds. To show you witnesses of the times long past, from an incredibly peaceful baroque pilgrimage spot, to some abandoned objects at the foot of mount Medvednica.

After we explore the amazing places the tour guide books don't mention, it's only fair we turn to a cosy traditional restaurant for a lunch.

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • half-day tour from the city center to the mountain
  • mysterious legends from mount Medvednica
  • history from spiritual life of 18th century monks to notorious 20th century regimes
  • visit to a serene sanctuary
  • time-travel to WWII through a visit to abandoned bunkers
  • walk a charming forest trail by a stream
  • tram tickets
  • lunch and one drink

This tour is designed as a private tour. It can be suitable for small groups of friends or families, but adventurous bigger groups enjoy it just as well. The tour lasts cca 5 hrs. Please, wear comfortable shoes and we advise you to dress in layers. We're not going to hike the mountain, but we're going into the forest at the bottom of the mountain and some parts of the terrain are uneven. It's always a few degrees colder in the woods. Please, make sure to put an insect repellent on, because the most dangerous animals in the forests of Zagreb are the smallest ones (especially ticks).

If you have any special needs or requirements (special diet, or you're traveling with children, or anything that might be limiting), please let us know before the tour and we'll adjust it according to your wishes. The price includes a very traditional mountain lunch, total value cca 50 kn per person.

This is a walk in the nature and it can be cancelled in case of bad weather.

Price:

  • 200 kn* per person
  • 400 kn for a single-person tour

* Croatian currency kuna (HRK or kn): 10 EUR = cca 75 kn

Conquer the Fortress


Conquer the Fortress


CONQUER THE FORTRESS

walk'n'hike tour to the medvedgrad fortress

The hike up was relaxing and enjoyable and the view when we arrived was even better
— Ana on TripAdvisor

Zagreb is a town with a centuries long history. Wouldn't you expect from a town on a hill, a town that goes back to Middle Ages,  to be adorned with a lovely castle? Well, Zagreb has always been a free city, and no noble man has ever ruled over the city. That's why, if you really want to see a castle, you're going to have to put your hiking boots on, and head to the mountain on the north side of the city. That's where a 13 centruy fortress of Medvedgrad waits for its visitors with centuries of history and a handful of legends ready to be unveiled.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • visit to Medvedgrad fortress, one of the most famous sights on mount Medvednica
  • get to know the mountain
  • short hike
  • history and legends
  • public transport tickets
  • tickets to Medvedgrad
  • tour guide with special education for adventourous tourism

The truth is, you can reach the fortress of Medvedgrad by car. But people who live in Zagreb generally don't do that. We usually take a very convenient bus to a charming neighbourhood called Šestine, and from over there, we walk. That's exactly what we're doing on this tour. It is possible to stop for a lunch or a short break in a mountan lodge (additional costs of a meal and one drink can be up to 100 kunas).

This tour is designed as a private tour. It can be suitable for small groups of friends or families, but adventurous bigger groups enjoy it as well. The tour lasts cca 4 hrs.

Still, there's no need to be intimidated by the word "hiking tour". Here in Zagreb, it would be the first "real" hike for kids. In other words, it's quite managable, but you should still take it as seriously as any visit to nature.  Some parts of the terrain are uneven or slippery. It's always a few degrees colder in the woods. Please, make sure to wear comfortable clothes, advisingly in several layers, and comfortable firm walking shoes. Please, put an insect repellent on, because the most dangerous animals in the forests of Zagreb are the smallest ones (read: ticks).

If you have any special needs or requirements, anything that might be limiting, please let us know before the tour and we'll adjust it according to your needs.

This is a walk in the nature and it can be cancelled in case of bad weather for safety reasons.

Price:

  • 150 kn* per person
  • 350 kn for a single or two persons tour

* Croatian currency kuna (HRK or kn): 10 EUR = cca 75 kn
