Wild Spring Ranch

We come to this beautiful property in the middle of forrest almost 3 years ago, the land was not touched for 30 years after the war. We are cleaning everything by ourselves, little by little and still have a lot to do.

We have a little garden that is for use of our helpers and us. We like sustainable living. We have composting toilets with sawdust. We are located 15km from our famous Nacional Park "Plitvice Lakes" , landmark Baracs caves only 3km, Rastoke waterfalls 19km, Stari Grad Drežnik Tower and many more beautiful places.

My experience at Wild Spring Ranch has been unforgettable! It's an incredibly beautiful ranch, the result of the great effort and work by Petra and Noa, two hardworking, independent women with a lot of love for what they do. I appreciate the opportunity to have collaborated with them, and I would love to return! You'll have close encounters with animals, nature, and you'll learn a lot about ranch and horse life. Highly recommended!

Personnellement je ne me suis pas sentie bien accueillie et je n’ai pas eu l’impression d’avoir de réelles explications sur la missions. Les horaires étaient plus grandes que prévue pour ma part. J’ai donc écourter ma mission.

I really enjoyed my time here in the ranch!! Lovely location in the Croatian countryside, lots of animals to work with and get to know, and the hosts Noã and Petra were excellent, every welcoming and fun to be around! Work included cleaning out the horses, feeding, fixing hay and water and going on rides with clients. If you need to go somewhere on your day off, or go to the store then they will help you with transportation, overall a very positive experience!

I personally would not recommend this volunteer experience to another traveller.
Made me feel very unwelcome, confused and uncomfortable at times. I won’t go into detail but if you have any questions, message me.

This was a bad experience. The people working here were so unpleasant. Our accommodation was far from good(disgusting kitchen, broken fireplace). The work was okay, but sometimes there were extra tasks, so we ended up working the whole day and we barely got days off. Noah, who lived in the same "house" was rude and not welcoming at all. She blamed us for everything that went wrong but we did our work right and the best we could. She gave no explanation about anything but then got mad when we did something the wrong way. Me and Tess tried to make the best out of it, but we left a week early.
