On Hiking Trnovacko lake



Arrival in the morning (by 9 am) to our base camp where you have homemade breakfast and we make preparation for a day trip into nature.

We ride with our vehicles for some 1h 30min, reaching the first point (Dragoš sedlo), for a short visit to the rainforest and the viewpoint from which we see the waterfall Skakavac. After making the photos and taking a short break, we continue with the vehicles several kilometers to the Prijevor foot of the mountain Maglić. After a short break and preparation, we continue to walk further to the lake. Hiking to Trnovacko lake lasts some 2h. At the lake we take a break (1h-3h) for a snack (lunch packet) and swimming in the lake, depending on the wishes of our guests and weather conditions.

After that, return with the same hiking route to the point where hiking began. After returning to the base camp with lunch your arrangement ends.The arrangement can be extended or combined with some of our arrangements.
