Itinerary

The itinerary is flexible, so the activities are in no particular order:

Canoeing excursion of 2 1/2 hours followed by horse riding in the afternoon (1 hour). The canoeing location is around 30 mins drive from the hotel, and the horse riding is in the same area. The horse riding lasts between 1 and 2 hours depending on your ability level.

Rafting excursion - a full day excursion, drive of around 1 hour 15 mins to start point, then 3 1/2 hours excursion. Afterwards you can get a meal at the nearby restaurant and relax on the river bank.

Rock climbing excursion around 30 mins drive from the hotel. Lasts around 90 mins, then you can relax on the river bank afterwards.

Cycling with guide. You ride from the hotel to Karlovac, around 20 km down easy country lanes for the most part, then your guide can either take you back to the hotel by car, or you can return by bike.

You then have two free days to explore the area, we recommend asking the hotel about nearby hiking trails, otherwise you can relax by the pool.

Please Note

We recommend hiring a car for this break as transfers to the activities are not included, and also so you can explore the area more easily in your free time.

Extras/Upgrades

Triple and quad rooms available on request.

A tiny village of around 500 people close to the Slovenian border, Ribnik is off the tourist trail and with few hotels in the area is the ideal place to get away from it all. Surrounded by hills and woodland it also offers excellent fishing in the local river Kupa, as well as a beach on the riverbank to relax on.

Other popular pastimes include hiking and cycling, there are a number of trails in the area.

Local places of interest include the Plitvice Lakes National Park and the nearby towns of Karlovac and Osijek.

The local cuisine is excellent, including many lamb and squid dishes. Local dishes include burek (a savoury pasty) and brodet (fish stew), two unique dishes you are unlikely to find anywhere else. Baklava is also very popular here as it is all around the Balkans.

The local beer is Karlovacko and is available everywhere as is the local tipple 'Pelinkovac' (juniper spirit). Local wines include Malvazija from Istria and Prosek from Dalmatia.
