Designed your own 3-day outdoor adventure with the help of a pro.
Take in the memorable mountainside views of canyons and rivers.
With over 400 routes, the park is one of the best climbing spots in Europe.
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.

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.
