Wonderful Fall Adventure!
Oct 2019
This was wonderful! My husband and I were lucky enough to have beautiful weather for our hike. Petra picked us up and drove us to the start of the public trail. Along the drive, she shared a lot of local history and suggestions for our time in Zagreb. Petra is a Zagreb local, and very knowledgeable about the city and many different trails in the hills surrounding the city. We started on the main trail and quickly moved onto to quite paths deep in the woods and moved onto Petra's private land covered in chestnut trees. Petra taught us what to look for and how to spot a bad nut! We were able to full bag to take home. She shared the proper techniques for both roasting and boiling the chestnuts at home. Petra also taught us about local plants all along our hike.

I can't recommend this enough. There are a few steep sections of the trail, but this is a great adventure for adults or families, and Petra is happy to take it at your pace. It was a wonderful day and Petra was an amazing guide. We're looking forward to working with Petra again for our next visit. She organizes all kind of hikes and experiences around Croatia.

Absolutely outstanding Fall experience minutes from central Zagreb
Oct 2019
Absolutely wonderful guided hike and experience. My wife and I were picked up outside our Airbnb and driven by the guide approximately 20 minutes outside of town to the beautiful Medvednica Hiking area that overlooks the city. First 20-30 minutes of hiking was up a beautiful common trail but the guide quickly took us "off piste" to through more remote trail to hike to her family chestnut tree farm, which is on the mountain/wilderness area. Hike from primary trail to family plot includes wonderful views overlooking Zagreb and the surrounding hillside. Truly incredible escape from the city walking among the Fall changing of the leaves. Only people we came across for several hours of tramping/chestnut picking were a few local mushroom pickers. Guide provides explanation on picking and then preparing chestnuts the when you get home. I can't recommend this 1/2 day escape enough! Guide provide wonderful insights on wild herbs growing in the area and provided us with a few surprises that I won't ruin by elaborating upon here. Guide drove us back to our airbnb by early afternoon.
