The Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch, Veliki Plana 

The Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch, Veliki Plana
Amidst 50 acres of private pastures in the foothills of the Velebit Mountain lies a hidden valley full of natural beauty, history, culture and endless adventures, inside 2 million acres of UNESCO Biosphere reserve. The Linden Tree ranch is a very private and unique guest ranch and Croatia's premier horse and riding destination. Come and stay in a luxurious Sioux Tipi or cosy chalet, ride in pristine nature, visit a ghost town on horseback, drink local whiskey and beer and taste organic cuisine featuring homemade breads, wild grown edibles, and free range meats. Come to the land of Winnetou movies and experience frontier life for a week, in this heart-changing adventure. You will come as a city-slicker and leave as true and tried cowboy and cowgirl.
We take pride in the fact that we can lay claim to having one of the best herds of horses in Croatia. We have developed a type of Natural horsemanship - a type of training that our horses as well as our riders are asked to go far beyond what your typical head to tail ride would ever be able to do
