There are many hiking trails in the area, the most interesting of them are clearly noticeable marked and will take you to the beautiful viewpoints on tops of surrounding mountains (Medveja stena, Kavranova stena). Staying in Kupa river valley is especially interesting for people who came to Gorski kotar to visit its numerous protected areas of nature. The nearest great attraction is hidden and hardly mentioned anywhere: Zeleni Vir & Vražji Prolaz special geomorphological reserve. It is spectacular uniqe landscape characterized by a great force of water, magnificent rocks and lush vegetation. Within the driving distance of less than 1 hour you can visit National park Risnjak, with its numerous walking and hiking options. Very interesting protected areas of nature nearby are cave Lokvarka and few other caves - some of them situated in the beautiful Golubinjak Forest Park (realy worth your visit). As well you can visit the Petehovac or Kamačnik protected landscapes, the source of Kupa river area... etc.

A village of Doluš is interesting by itself. It has rich history, that originates from times when village was full of human activities. Nowadays native people mostly moved out to bigger cities. The nature is clean and beautiful, majority of ploughlands are progressively overgrown by meadows and forest. Flora and fauna are rich and various. Numerous protected species lives there. The Kupa river valley is also known as the 'butterflay valley', becouse many butterfly species have safe habitat in it. The butterfly abundance came as a consequence of great plant diversity. Despite the promotional "butterflay valley" title, this area could also be called "the valley of birds", "wildlife valley", etc. Birdwatchers or fishermen would have great time and many opportunities here. In 19th century there was an attempt to make Kupa river navigable for small merchant ships -the remains of the channel are still visible in Doluš. Old, partly abadoned villages (all in a walking distance from your house), offer many magnificent panoramas. The old church in neighbouring Kocjani is full of interesting antique features. It still has its function on sundays.

The vicinity of Adriatic sea gives special charm for people wishing to combine peaceful vacation with sea and river water sport activities. Also, National park Plitvice lakes, capital of Croatia Zagreb or coastal touristic centers Opatija, Rijeka or Krk island can all be visited in one day trip.

Location description from owner

The Primorje-Gorski Kotar County region

The village of Doluš is in the Croatian region called Gorski kotar. Hilly terain, cold, long and snowy winters -were the reason why many old villages like Doluš were abadoned in past 100 years. But the region is rich in valuable monuments of nature and wildlife, unique, and nowadays protected by the law. Tourists coming to visit Risnjak National Park, or to enjoy beatiful outing sites in protected areas of nature, walking paths, hiking destinations etc. are bringing back life to this beautiful (but not so well known) region of Croatia. Gorski kotar has worm and sunny summers, with fresh and comfortable nights. Today, Gorski kotar also has a good traffic infrastructure, so by car it takes less than one hour to the sea coast and coastal touristic content. So, its climate nowadays became its advantage. :)
