Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch

Velika Plana 5, 53213, Velika Plana, Croatia

Hidden away in the hamlet of Velika Plana inside the Velebit Mountain Biosphere Reserve, this ranch retreat is the perfect place to discover Croatia’s rugged Lika region. Either book a stay in one of the units (which range from teepees and river tents to mudhouse-style casitas and en-suite rooms with private porches) or pop in for the day to take advantage of the many activities on offer. The ranch specializes in horseback riding—guests can enjoy lessons, two-hour trots, or day-long rides that roam the range—but also features canoe expeditions, archery, and Jeep rides through the wilderness. For those who choose to spend the night, the spa compound has a pool, a Siberian cedar hot tub, space for yoga, and an outdoor treatment room.

Head for the Croatian Hills

On the edge of the Velebit mountain range, Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch has the soul of a hippie agrarian farm and the trappings of a casually well-appointed hotel, complete with wireless Internet. Choose to sleep in either a wood-frame apartment or a beam-supported teepee.
