    Mountain lodge Vilinac

The Vilinac mountain lodge is probably one of the most significant ones along the Via Dinarica. It was totally destroyed during the war, and was rebuilt less than five years ago.
It is managed by Mountain-ski club Vilinac from Jablanica.

Vilinac is located below the eponymous peak Čvrsnica – Veliki Vilinac 2112 MASL. The lodge is located at 1961 MASL and has 40 beds. It was built in 1939. The position of the mountain hut on Vilinac will offer you an unforgettable view of the slopes of Čvrsnica (the highest peak -- Plocno 2228 mn / v), Pestibrda, the most attractive alpine climbing rocks in Balkans (Veliki Kuk), and the complete range of Prenj with all its peaks over 2000 MT / v. 

Hajdučka vrata as one of the White trail and Čvrsnica Mountain biggest nature attraction is in the vicnity of the lodge, cca. 40min walk.

It is a smaller building, consisting of a kitchen and dining room on the ground floor and dormitories in the attic. The lodge is supplied with drinking water from two sources: a pit, which is located in the immediate vicinity, and from a pipe inside the lodge. The toilet is outdoors.

Getting there

The easiest route to Vilinac is through the village of Jablanica over Doljani and Sovići to Sovićki vrata (literally: Sovicki ''doors"). From this point, there is still a one kilometer drive to an intersection. Veer left on the gravel road with signposts to Vitlenici. From there, there is a well-marked path to the lodge.

Vilinac Hut cancelled my booking only three days before I was due to stay there. At first they told me it was because of Covid but then they offered me an alternative date so I suspect they had a group booking on the day I was due to stay. It put me in a difficult situation as I had lined up all my accommodation along the trail. Thankfully I was able to get keys to the Plasa Hut but it meant I had to add in two hours of hiking time to an already long day.
