Cycling Around the Nature Reserve
Above the Kolpa Valley is a moderately challenging one-day cycling tour suitable for trekking or mountain bicycles. The circular trail runs around the Zeleni vir Nature Reserve along the Croatian-Slovenian border and leads us high above the Kolpa Valley.
The initial steep ascent to Brod na Kupi just above the right river bank is followed by a more moderate section on a local paved road. The road through the Municipality of Brod Moravice leads to the village of Donja Dobra, where it runs on the main paved road for a while. The ascent past the settlement of Skrad concludes in the village of Kupjak, about six kilometers from the town of Delnice. From there, the road veers right in a quick descent on a gravel road back towards the starting point.
The cycling trip can be paired with a visit to the Zeleni vir Nature Reserve on foot. The two starting points to the reserve are in Donji Ložac or Skrad.
