The area of Gorski kotar has a very diverse flora and fauna, and with the fact that you may accidentally run into some animals, there is a possibility for a closer relationship with wild animals.
If you are looking for adrenaline and challenges, we suggest bearwatching - photo hunting of bears and other forest animals that you observe and photograph in their natural habitats in the Croatian forests.
For visitors who want a more relaxed encounter with animals, a walk in the forest or a visit to the gater (fenced menagerie) is always an option. Japlenški vrh is a fairytale place where man meets nature, where along the promenade you have the opportunity to hand-feed fallow deer.
