It was a very nice hike with Silvio. He knows the area well and was able to answer all the questions we had. You could see, that he is passionate about sports and hiking and we enjoyed the tour. Unfortunatly the waterfall was dry at the time we did our hike.

Hi, I recommend the hike, it was overall nice experience even though waterfall was dry. Forrest is beautiful and you can take bath in small pools on your way. Silvio was great company and he has lot of experience, he also brought his dog with him. The terrain is not hard to walk, just get a bit steep at places. Overall experience is just like a morning hiking with friends:)

I enjoyed my experience with Silvio and also felt safe since I was in the capable hands of an expert hiker and former mountain rescuer. He picked me up right on time, and off we went! His cute dog also came with us. I was a little worried about doing the hike since I was not an experienced hiker, but I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone. He was very patient and kind in allowing me to go at my own pace, letting me rest when I needed to take a breath/drink, and encouraging me to keep going. There were some points when I was asking myself, "Why am I doing this again?" because my body was not used to the changes in elevation or uneven paths, but I persevered. The views from Peak Pećnik and of Slap Rečina (Waterfall Banina) were spectacular and worth the effort to get there. My body will ache for a few days, especially since I climbed Stube Petra Kružića to get to Trsat Castle yesterday, but I will definitely treasure the memories I made today. It was a unique experience that only someone local could have shown me. Whenever I need a peaceful moment, I can remember how it felt to be on top of the peak with the view of the Adriatic Sea and the wind in my hair or play the recording I made of the waterfall while I imagine being in the beautiful silence and nature there. Whenever I am struggling with something, I can remember how I persevered and how hard effort is worth it when you want to reach your goals. As someone whose brain is going all the time, I also recognize that engaging my body more is good for keeping me grounded and present.

What an awesome way to get off the beaten path. Silvio's love of the area is contagious and it was so fun to do something most tourists wouldn't know about. A great day that felt more like hanging out with a friend than being on a tour. Definitely recommend.

My hike with Silvio was the highlight of my trip in Rijeka! Highly recommend for anyone that loves nature! We trekked up to the peak and Silvio even added an extra destination so that I could see another amazing view! We then went to the waterfall which was truly magical! Silvio has so much knowledge, lots of life experience to share and was a very caring guide! Do not hesitate to book as you will have the best time :-)
