Gorski kotar
Exciting four-wheel safari

Gorski kotar has a very original solution for all nature lovers lacking time for a whole-day trip in the open countryside or who just aren't very fond of autumn's muddy forest trails, but still want to experience the atmosphere of this season in the forest – the adventure quad safari on winding mountain trails.

The latest hit in Gorski kotar's tourism offer is the adventure quad safari in the very attractive area around Fužine.

Quad, also known as ATV (all terrain vehicle), a four-wheel motorcycle designed mainly for off-road drives, can reach a speed of up to 100 km/h on a straight stretch. Because of that, quads have grown very popular as a means of transport in the areas that abound in forest roads – such as Gorski kotar. It is therefore no wonder that quads are also offered to the visitors in the area, as a means to discover the landscape in an exciting way. H 11 tourist agency from Zagreb, specialised in adventure programmes, offers the visitors flexible tours (which are also suitable for team building) in the mountainous area around the renowned holiday resort of Fužine. The programmes are organised depending on individual needs and possibilities, offering the visitors the unique chance to experience large areas of beautiful nature in a relatively short on quad vehicles. Since the area of Fužine has approximately 1500 kilometres of forest trails, the possibilities for adventure are huge. In addition, many of these trails lead to some of the most attractive locations, such as lakes or vantage points, which is why most tours are a combination of driving and walking.

The length and the difficulty of a tour are set by the users, and the agency provides not only the vehicles, but all the necessary equipment for driving in cold weather as well. One should not forget that winter is also very attractive for quad drives, because the vehicles are fully equipped for driving on snow.
