Hiking Snježnik

Hiking on Snježnik (Croatia) was a beautiful  hiking experience for us.

Snježnik and its group can be considered as a 10 km long ridge , situated between Obruc (Grobnik Alps) and Risnjak.

The lowest altitude of this ridge is 1.300 mtrs and there are 5 important peaks that has to be mentioned: Jelenc (1.442 mtrs), Planina (1.426 mtrs), Guslica (1.490 mtrs), Međuvrhi (1.462 mtrs) and Snježnik (1.505 mtrs).

For hiking on Snježnik   it is necessary to reach Platak.

HIKING FROM PLATAK

Platak is a family ski resort close to Rijeka with numerous recreational facilities, both in winter and summer.

The only ski resort in Croatia where you can enjoy the sea view from the top of the chairlift (1,361 m)!

Built in the middle of last century,

Platak soon became very popular.

At the Platak ski resort, the Adriatic slope was born, the only race where skiers start looking at the entire Kvarner Bay.

From Platak we needed a 1; 45 minute pleasant walk to the top of Snježnik.

Hiking on Snježnik does not require great physical fitness.

 

HIKING SNJEŽNIK CROATIA MOUNTAIN

Hiking Snježnik ,Croatia

There are two routes to the top; Platak across the ridge –Snježnik (1,30) and Platak trought Grlo –Snježnik (1,20).

For the way up , we used first route.

For taking down we use rute trought Grlo.

Snježnik offers very nice view on beautiful Kvarner bay

We had very nice time on the top of Snježnik.

That moment of silent on mountain is amazing.

In period of March and November, hike to Snježnik on both route is very easy.
