Veliki Lubenovac is one of the most beautiful localities in the Northern Velebit National Park. It is a karst valley located at the edge of the strict nature reserve Hajdučki and Rožanski Kukovi. Lubenovac was once a summer settlement of shepherds and their flocks as evidenced by the remains of some fifty summer huts, drystone walls and rainwater cisterns. To be seen on Lubenovac is also a pond called Lubenovačka Ruja, which in the past served for watering livestock– sheep, goats, cows and horses.
Veliki Lubenovac is a good point of departure for mountaineering tours to Veliki Kozjak, one of the most beautiful peaks of north Velebit.
Lubenovac can be accessed on foot on a dirt (macadam) road from the direction of Begovača (intersection at Careva Kuća), on a dirt (macadam) road and mountain path from the direction of Alan, or down the Premužić Trail. Whichever route you choose, you are sure to have a wonderful day’s trip that will lead you to the very heart of Northern Velebit.
