Zagreb - NP Northern Velebit: Zavižan - Premužić trail - Zagreb
We start by transfer pick-up at 6:00. Transfer takes us about 3h up to the top of the hill to mountain hut Zavižan. Here famous Ante will greet us. Ante can offer us strong alcoholic brandy, homemade and local beer called the same as the mountain Velebit: “Velebitsko pivo”. Zavižan mountain hut is in the same time weather station and Ante and his family is for generations working there for meteorological and hydrological service. We can observe the weather station and instruments. From Zavižan we go downhill and enter Premužić trail! Top rated and most beautiful trail in Croatia, built in 1930 using special local dry walls technique without any machines! It is a true natural heritage and represents a local knowledge and architecture incorporated in nature.
Interesting fact about Premužić trail is that it is easy trail to walk; even an inexperienced person can do it! It does not have high elevation changes. Other special thing is that it gives you true wild mountain experience with unique views changing all the way! With all this, we take our trip that lasts between 2 and 3 hours to next mountain shelter Rosijeva koliba. Here we have lunch, and rest. After rest return hike back to Zavižan and transfer to Zagreb.
We carry all the food and water for this day hike, and have picnic lunch. Hiking around 4-6h, easy to moderate.
