Ranch HFC is just a 30-minute drive away from Zagreb, and only 5 km away from the famous Zagorje spa resort, Krapinske Toplice. As an ideal place to enjoy soul and body relaxation and enjoy the beauty of nature, this ranch offers horse riding programs and courses at the Equestrian club “Horses for Champions”, and a superb gastro offer in the bistro “Ranch”.
