Bear Mountain Bike Adventure
Mount Medvednica, located outside the Croatian capital city of Zagreb, is a unique example of preserved nature at the doorstep of a large city. The name "Bear Mountain" is a possible English translation for the word Medvednica. This mountain is a favored hiking, mountain biking, and skiing destination for the citizens of Zagreb and its visitors. It is also a designated nature park to protect its rich and diverse wildlife. Major highlights of this tour include the amazing views over Zagreb and the surrounding region of Zagorje. Medvednica's dense forests and fresh air are ideal to escape the summer heats and city hustle. The highest peak Sljeme, standing at 3389 ft (1033 m) will be our starting point. From there you will be guided down the wide paths through the forest. Along the way breaks will be taken to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and to have an optional picnic. The tour will then continue downward as we reach the outskirts of Zagreb. The last part of this trip is through the forest Park of Dotrscina and finally Maksimir, one of the oldest public parks in Europe. This park is a real treasure among locals that come here to enjoy the forest and lakes scattered throughout the area. Zagreb Zoo is also here and you are welcome to stay and visit.
