Ride Overview

This is one that fits EVERY bill!  It’s great for families, for a romantic couples getaway, or for friends – and it’s sooooo totally a “feel good” in all the best ways!

With just 30 beds – you’re guaranteed to always feel like you have the resort to yourself, and the full complement of staff, wilderness guides and food and beverage artisans guarantee intimate attention. Adventure unfolds in tandem with the forest, streams, seasons, and the call of the wild. An impressive menu of equestrian, water, hiking, interpretive, and restorative activities is offered daily – each outing custom-built to suit age, skill-level and expectation.  The resort is a sustainable luxury wilderness retreat. Gently created out of the untamed landscape, with thoughtfulness and honor for the land, people and Croatia’s wildlife, a vision that he continues to develop to this day. The result is an authentic guest ranch that is in complete harmony with the surroundings.

The original settlers to this idyllic area homesteaded Velika Plana around 8,000 B.C., and some ruins still remain in the valley. Up until the 1960s the population was on a steady rise and the valley was home to about 700 inhabitants, all small ranchers and farmers who carved this paradise out of the wilderness by modest tools and hard labor.  You’ll find that much of the way the ranch was built and currently furnished speak to the craftsmanship that began with these original settlers.

Riding is varied and tailored to ability and scheduled four to five times each week with one day offering a full day ride.  The valley and mountains offer long and fast canters and the grass arena is a perfect place to introduce a newer rider to the art of equestrianism.   Non riders (or when not riding) there’s plenty to enjoy – hiking, canoeing, bear watching, cowboy games, jeep tours, archery, cycling and swimming.  there are also child friendly activities.
