We are going to a beautiful rocky peak Snježnik, a mountain surrounded by beautiful meadows. We will meet in city center of Rijeka and take a 30 minute drive to Platak, a ski resort located north of Rijeka. We start hiking from the big Platak mountain lodge following the marked path across the Greben reef to the peak ( 1.505 m). We will go back by another route, trough Grlo (Croatian word for Throat) where we will a beautiful, but unfortunately abandoned mountain lodge Snježnik (1.490 m) situated just below the summit, under the crest and above a grassy slope. From a small terrace there are some nice vistas around Kvarner bay and Croatian islands. We will take a little rest here, have coffee or herbal tea, made on a portable gas stove. Also a healthy snack is included, home made delicious raw sweets that I make for you. After some downtime, we descend to the foothills through grasslands and forests. The whole hike takes about 3 to 4 hours, depending on your physical condition and weather.
I am a real nature lover, so whenever possible, I like to get to the mountain or a forest to energize my body and mind. I have been involved in sports, hiking and rock climbing for years. I like to explore new, interesting places in nature and share it with others. I also have knowledge of picking natural herbs while hiking.

Water, coffee and herbal tea are included
We will see the most beautiful abandoned Croatian mountain lodge Snježnik, with sad history but magnificent view. If we have time, we will visit Guslica, a peak near Snježnik . It is the site of an abandoned Yugoslav People's Army complex, giving it something of the appearance of a ghost town.
