Join Dean, an UIMLA certified guide on this multi-day hike in Croatia! In the Paklenica National Park you will see so much of the beauty that Croatia offers.
Experience the stunning Mala Paklenica and Velika canyons!
1000 recorded species of plants and subspecies, of which 79 are endemic
400 meter-high canyons surround you as you hike
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.
Request to book this trip if you have always wanted to hike through the beautiful Paklenica National Park! And if you are interested in other hikes in Croatia, feel free to check out my 3 day trek on the KRK island.

Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative
Dean was very helpful and responsive to our enquiries. He was enthusiastic and devoted to show the prettiest side of Tre Cime to us. Although we were a bit behind, Dean was patient to wait for us and cater to our speed. Great experience!!

Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.
Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!

We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went \'the extra mile\' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !
Dean was prompt and super knowledgeable about the area we were going to. He guided us safely to Slemenova Spica to enjoy the Julian Alps. As two girls from the city, we don\'t have much hiking experience, and he was patient and super helpful. We enjoyed our trip so much and it has been the highlight of our Slovenia trip. Thanks once again, Dean, for taking us on this experience!
He guided us to really fun hiking depending on the weather ,our skill and preference.We had a great time.
Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.
