Experience authentic guest ranch and restorative retreat hidden inside UNESCO Velebit Mountain Biosphere Reserve, Velika Plana, Croatia. Their all-inclusive ranch ensures that visits to Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch are memorable for their adventures and amenities, not logistical challenges.


As Europe’s only DK Eyewitness Travel Luxury Ranch, their property truly stands apart from other luxury resorts. The idea of a guest ranch is that you are a guest, rather than a lodger, visiting a home away from home and taking part in the same adventures and traditions as if you owned it. It is their pleasure to offer all gourmet meals, a robust outdoor activities program, an experienced staff and expert guides and top-of-the-the-line gear based on the idea that our mountain will become your playground for the length of your stay.

Their Eco Story

Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch is located inside Velebit Mountain, specifically inside Velebit National Park. In 1978 park was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The spirit of the Biosphere Reserve governs Retreat & Ranch operations and forms the backbone of all policies and sustainable development.

Linden Tree is committed to exist in Velebit Mountain in an entirely sensitive and environmentally sustainable manner. To that extent, we developed a concept that puts human in the center of attention in order to create a balanced and integrated living systems for all creatures. They call this concept CIDER, which is an acronym for Community, Integrity, Development, Evolution and Responsibility.

Their business approach is centered on staying true to the underlying principles of sustainability, community engagement and high-quality products.
