Hiking Risnjak National Park

Risnjak Croatian National Park

Named after the lynx, Risnjak National Park in Croatia is one of the few places left in Europe that is home to this rare animal. Experience this unique setting, where Croatia’s Mediterranean and mountain climates converge.

On this adventure, we’ll hike to the peak of Veliki Risnjak, located 1528 meters above sea level. From the trail, we will have views of white limestone rock faces protruding from fairytale pine forests. These woodlands are home to extensive wildlife, including bears and wolves, which are now rarely found in most parts of Europe.

At the top, we will be rewarded for hiking Risnjak with a stunning 360-degree view of seemingly endless green mountains linking the Alps with the Balkan mountain ranges. On a clear day, it is possible to see the Adriatic Sea glistening in the distance.

The total hiking time on this Croatian national park hike is 6 hours.

Lunch is not included in the price of our hiking Risnjak trip, but you are welcome to bring snacks for a picnic lunch during the hike.
