Close to the Adriatic Sea in western Croatia is the picturesque Paklenica National Park, which is packed full of natural treasures that can be explored in many ways.

Home to the two impressive canyons of Mala (Small) Paklenica and Velika (Big) Paklenica, they connect to the southern slopes of the Velebit mountain range, which is part of the larger Dinaric Alps.

The park is populated with scenic karst spires and sculptures, rising from the mountain meadows and forested valleys. For this reason it is considered one of the top climbing areas in Europe.

This 3-day adventure is your chance to choose which activities you wish to do, either rock climbing, mountaineering, hiking or a combination.

We will be able to visit a bundle of places from piercing mountain peaks within charming valleys to impressive rivers and cultural attractions.

Because you’re able to choose and mix the outdoor sports, this 3-day exploration is great for groups and families.

There are approximately 400 climbing routes ranging in difficulty and length, with the season stretching from early spring to late autumn.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on a 3-day adventure that is full of mixed activities in the scenic Paklenica National Park.
