How long should I stay?

Because of the volume of trails and the exciting biodiversity as you trek, five to seven days exploring the canyons of Paklenica National Park is a reasonable amount of time in Croatia. Hikes often feature multiple geologic and geographic wonders, so it is certainly recommended to spend the better part of a week in the amazing world of this Balkan paradise.

Hicimos un viaje de senderismo de tres días en Paklenica / Velebit mountains: nos encantaron las montañas, las vistas y
la gente amable. Danileja y Ferdo fueron guías maravillosos y capaces que conocen muy bien las montañas y nos sentimos muy seguros con ellos. Tuvimos una pequeña cabaña en las montañas durante dos noches y disfrutamos de la paz y la naturaleza al máximo. Se ocuparon de todo lo que necesitábamos y hicieron que nuestros días fueran muy especiales.
So much fun, the highlight of my month in Croatia! I did two days with this company, 1 day rock
climbing and 1 day hiking in Paklenica. Danijela and Ferdo were great guides, they tailored both days according to my experience/skill and what I wanted to see/do. They were really great company and provided lots of information about Paklenica national park and taught me about Croatian culture and history. During the rock climbing they provided advice on how to improve my technique. Danijela maintained great contact in the few days leading up to the activities (in case the weather turned bad and we would be unable to proceed or have to change routes). Additionally they helped organise lunch at one of the mountain huts during – I didn’t even know this was an option and would have no idea how to do this without their help. The experience itself was heaps of fun, the hike had great views and the rock climbing I was able to push myself in an outdoor terrain, a step up from indoor rock climbing. As a solo traveller it was good to know that I was with two skilled professionals incase something happened during the hike/climb. Overall a fantastic experience, I will definitely go back if I return to Croatia.
Конечно погулять по тропам Национального парка и не получить удовольствие ну просто не возможно. Эти красоты и ощущения уединения плюс
соединение с природой Вас поразят.
