White rocks trail

White Rocks & Vihoraški Trail

A trail in middle of green Gorski kotar in the area that Croatia has protected with the top nature protection possible: Strict nature reserve! The nature here must stay untouched and wild, so we are privileged to just pass through the Reserve, taking home only our photos and memories.
We will hike and scramble Vihoraški put, the legendary trail that goes between White rocks (Bijele stijene) and Samarske rocks (Samarske stijene). Experienced mountaineers consider Vihoraški put one of the most beautiful trails in Croatia. For passing some parts of the trail, you need to climb the rocks a bit, using both the hands and legs, and helping yourself with cable and ladder. As technically hard it is, the rewarding views are! This route we will pass in one day, long as it was two!

Join us in this hiking and scrambling tour of some of Croatia’s most beautiful terrain. We will pick you up at your Zagreb accommodation at 6:00 AM and drive you into the protected Gorski Kotar region, famous for its thick forests and rugged mountains.
We pass through Ogulin town, cute little town from fairy tale, and proceed deeper to mountains. After leaving behind last village we move on the dusty road and approximatley between 9:00 and 10:00 we start the hike.
First part (1 hour) we hike to the peak of White rocks, on the White Rocks Trail. Enjoy the spectacular views of its distinctive rock formations before continuing onward to the 5-hour Vihoraski Trail, renowned as one of the most intriguing hiking trails in the country. Head deeper into the wilderness, where you’ll have the chance to take a break in the Green Valley and trek through other nearby valleys. Afterwards, you’re in for a bit of technical climbing along the challenging Ljuska section of the trail. Be rewarded with beautiful views before arriving to the Ratkovo shelter (optional, depending on time and strength).

Return downhill back along the easier Begova Trail. Late afternoon return to your vehicle, and transfer back to Zagreb.
