The King’s Hunting Trail day hike is a great magical tour climbing through the ancient forests of Cvrsnica Mountain to Zljeb, all the while trekking on King Karadjordjevic’s old hunting trails. A hunting hut was built near the top for the King because he so fancied the rich wildlife the area had to offer. He passed away quite a while ago, but fortunately for us his trail is very much alive and we’ve been using it for years. We’ll hike through closed beech-tree forests starting from the amazing valley of Diva Grabovica. It’s a fairly sharp climb at times but truly stunning and refreshing. The trail head leads us to several natural springs, so the water is awesome. We recommend that you bring a water bottle to fill for our final ascent.
We’ll climb 2.5 hours before reaching our destination, and do our famous lunch on a perch overlooking the largest rock face on the Balkan Peninsula at over 1,000 meters. The peaks of Cvrsnica will tower around us in every direction. Mali and Veliki Medvjed sprout out in front, rock walls to our right, and the rocky peaks of Cvrsnica’s highest points just behind us. This will be a great way to spend the day; spectacular views with a refreshing hike fit for a king and queen…so treat yourself as such, you won’t be disappointed, we promise.
We also offer more strenuous day and multiday trips that include via ferata style hiking with ascents ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 meters. Contact us for more information.
