Wild Spring Ranch

Wild Spring Ranch consists of 13 hectares on the edge of a protected natural area of ​​the significant landscape of Barać's caves. After the war, untouched and abandoned for more than 25 years, the plot merges with the wilderness that surrounds our property. On the hills, there are various lookouts and hiking trails that you can use, along with a multitude of natural springs and caves.

Over the past few years, they have invested their time to revitalize this country into a sustainable ecological destination. They have created an organic garden which, in addition to learning and research, they are expanding and supplementing with new plants and handicrafts made of natural materials.

On the estate, there are also the stars of this story, meet the faithful friend horses, the always fun and naughty dogs, playful cats, and popcorn. They intend to increase their animal kingdom to other animal species as well. They offer you the opportunity to escape from the hectic lifestyle in the concrete jungle and return to the basics of sustainable ecological living, enjoying the clear spring water, and most importantly, the fresh clean air.

Visit the sights by riding in a carriage, get to know the surroundings on the backs of the faithful horses, or sit comfortably by the campfire and enjoy the stars. Taste homemade brandy and liqueurs according to their own family recipe that is available while riding in a carriage or on the ranch.

Location

Located in a quiet fairytale area, Wild Spring Ranch, a horse center in the middle of a forest with a beautiful landscape, is pure nature surrounded by greenery. It's located only three kilometers from the historical landmark, Barać Cave, and 15 kilometers from the Croatian National Park Plitvice Lakes. Enjoy the natural beauty of the picturesque surroundings and the crystal clear water from the forest spring at your fingertips.

What surrounds the ranch

Plitvice National Park and the surrounding protected land are one of the last areas in Europe to find a self-sustaining ecosystem with native predators and other wildlife filling the surrounding area. The famous brown bear is the star of the Plitvice Lakes National Park, whose territory is only 15 kilometers away on the main road D1. Other predators in the area include hawks, eagles, Ural owls, wolves, and European lynx.

Barać's caves, which are located only three kilometers from the property, are amazing protected Croatian caves. As most of Croatia is created from limestone (over 50%) and natural springs, this enables the creation of many different geological formations. In the area of ​​Rakovica, 150 caves were discovered and Barać's caves are in the foreground.

With many entrances of different sizes, this is the dream of cave explorers and the cave fauna consists of bats, invertebrates, and birds. The surroundings abound in bike and forest hiking trails. Hiking trips are woven through this protected land which allows you to explore various entrances to caves, water sources, and streams on your own or indulge in the trust of guides.
