Mountain climbing on Svilaja


The starting point for the ascent is mountain house Orlove stine (1050m altitude) located in picturesque mountain village Zelovo. This route is characterised by extraordinary natural beauty seen in the contrast of beech forest and Dalmatian karst.

The view from the top of the mountain is a special experience and one of the most attractive sights in Dalmatia. You can see central-Dalmatian islands Vis, Brac, Hvar, the Kornati, mountains Velebit, Dinara, Kamesnica, Biokovo, Mosor, lake Peruca and it is even possible to see Italy if the sky is clear.

On our return a warm and delicious lunch can be served in the mountain hut.
