Žumberak: the Samobor Highlands - departure from Zagreb

Hike in pure untouched nature less than an hour drive from Zagreb. Admire spectacular views over the hilly landscape of Žumberak-Samobor Highlands Nature Park and discover the small baroque town of Samobor.

What to Expect

We will pick you up in your accommodation in Zagreb and head towards Žumberak – the Samobor Highlands. The Park abounds in hiking trails of varying length and difficulty. Our usual route leads to the highest peak Japetić at 879 m (2884 ft). It offers some of the most spectacular views not only of the park but also of undulating northwestern Croatia and nearby Slovenia. The beech forest surrounding Japetic is a protected reserve, home to beautiful examples of rare flora and fauna.
Before or after hiking there will be time to stop in the small town of Samobor which is a real hidden gem of Baroque architecture. We definitely recommend a coffee break on the main square and famous local dessert ‘’kremšnite“.
Since the famous Plešivica wine road is very close, there is an option to visit the charming vineyards and enjoy wine tasting and lunch in one of the best local cellars.
