Calling all hikers to the Paklenica National Park! Over the course of 2+ days, you will be able to explore the mountainous beauty of Croatia.

The Paklenica National Park is located in and around the slopes of the Velebit Mountain Range, in southwest Croatia. The park is home to many canyons, 400-meter-high mountains and over 1000 different types of animal and plant species, which is why it is one of the most famous hiking destinations in Europe.

On this 2-4 day trip, you will have a lot of flexibility with your schedule, as you will be able to do different activities based on how much time you allot to this trip. However, no matter what duration you choose, you will definitely get to delight in the 700 meter high mountain walls surrounding us, against the backdrop of plains and dense forest, peppered with unique rare grass. You will also have the opportunity to climb up to the highest peak in the park: Velebit. And it is also possible to climb to the second-highest peak in the entire country, Vaganski Vrh, which is located at 1,757 meters.

This trip is leisurely, and possible with 4-7 people at a time. This trip also varies in price given your desired trip duration. I offer this trip for anywhere between 2-4 days, and the rates listed below are for 2 days.
