Chalets Runolist

A green getaway close to the Adriatic coast

The breath-taking green oasis of Gorski Kotar hides two charming chalets with beautiful views of the forests and nearby hills.  

The Chalets Runolist are located on the doorstep of the National Park Risnjak. Each chalet (called Ana and Eva) is an individual unit for rent, built in a typical mountain style of Gorski Kotar, with low roofs and wood-panelled walls.

The whole property has a large private garden with an outdoor heated swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a Finnish sauna, and a children's playground - ideal for a relaxing family holiday in a quiet and green oasis of Gorski Kotar. 

The restaurant "Risnjak" (at the entrance of the national park) is only 1.5 km away from the Holiday Houses Runolist and it offers a local mountain cuisine.

Gorski Kotar is the most heavily forested region of Croatia which makes it a magnificent retreat in the hot summers. In a tourist sense, it is not overdeveloped and since not widely known, it is never too crowded which is a great advantage.

The National Park Risnjak, located about 15 km from the Adriatic coast, covers an area of 64 km2. Easily accessible from the highway Zagreb – Rijeka, the area is a popular destination for walking, climbing and mountaineering (the highest peak is Risnjak with 1.528m).

The Chalets Runolist are a perfect getaway from crowded tourist places and high temperatures on the coast. Close to both the Croatian Capital of Zagreb as well as Kvarner region on the Adriatic coast.

  1. Amazing location - in a green oasis of peace and quiet, in the middle of highland forests, half an hour’s drive from the Adriatic coast and 1.5 km from the National Park Risnjak. Ideal starting point for many activities and a true paradise for nature lovers.
  2. National Park Risnjak with interesting activities, which you can enjoy in a unique natural surroundings: hiking, mountain biking, sports fishing, special places for game observation to experience the park’s fauna more closely. Some light, recreational activities:
  • Short hiking trip to the karst spring of the River Kupa - the hydrological phenomenon and natural monument. The spring with the cleanest water and a variable turquoise-green colour, also called the Lake of Kupa. It is 200 m long and 30 m wide. The spring is the one of the many still unsolved mysteries of karst. It is also the one of the strongest, widest and deepest Croatian springs, located in the National Park Risnjak.
  • Hiking along the educational path Leska - a circular walk trail, 4.5 km long, beginning and ending at the visitor center in Crni Lug.

    3. The stunning natural attractions Vražji Prolaz (The Devil's Passage) and Zeleni Vir (The Green Vortex). The trails are 30 km or a half an hour’s drive away from Crni Lug. Located in the canyon below Skrad, at 302m - 649m above sea level. The area was declared geomorphological reserve in 1962. Green Vortex is a source at the bottom of a shallow cave whose entrance is surrounded by vertical, high cliffs and a waterfall. The Devil's Passage is a 800 meters long canyon, one of the most beautiful Croatian canyons full of wild and romantic beauty. Through a narrow gorge, barely two meters wide, among a hundred meters high rocks, murmurs the mountain stream Jasle. Above the stream, on supports cut into the rock, galleries and bridges have been made for excursionists. An amazing experience.
