Today we will meet wonderful family who moved from Croatia capital Zagreb to live in small Lika village to peruse working in the long standing family tradition of tourism and hospitality. They like to say: for each of our guests we prepared special greeting: we offer our grappa, made out of plum and homemade bread and cheese. We do not like to say that we are engaged in classic tourism but actually we like to say that we work in “home hospitality” because we open the door of our home to our guests, introducing them to the countryside life and the Velebit mountain in which we live. Our guests can take part in shading of dried out
grass that farmers use as animal food, animal care, goat milking, farming activities and preparation of all goodies for the winter (jam, traditional ajvar, juice, grappa). The youngest members can enjoy riding ponies, playing with rabbits and small goats. Afterwards we continue to Kuterevo Bear Refuge which was founded in 2002 and ever since then bears are the main attraction in the village. Right now, the refuge hosts 8 bears, 2 of which are coming from a Zoo and the rest lost their mothers during their first year of life and thus had
no chance of survival in the wild.
