Little hikers from SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci embark on a new adventure

Eight children and young people from the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci spent a wonderful hiking weekend in the Northern Velebit National Park, where they attended a brief hiking course.

Children and young people were accompanied by an SOS mother and psychologist. The hiking course was organized by the hiking society PD Zanatlija Osijek.

During the three days of hiking, they climbed two Velebit peaks – Buljma (1451 m) i Alančić (1611 m), from which they could enjoy the magnificent view of the islands of Cres, Pag and Rab, and test their rock climbing skills by climbing a vertical natural rock.

On their way down, they also visited the Nehaj Fort in the nearby town of Senj and the Frankpan Castle in Ogulin, where they toured the County Museum, which features a permanent exhibition on the history of hiking and mountaineering in Croatia.

To find out more about how the hikers from SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci triumphed over their fear of snakes, darkness, height, vertical climbs and personal failure, how they recharged their own batteries without any need to reach for their mobile phones, how they enjoyed their nature walks, spending time outdoors in fresh air and taking in the astonishing views of Croatian countryside, please click on our gallery.
