Croatia is very famous as a seaside tourist destination, but so far it’s not enough famous for its mountain areas. This trip is an opportunity to explore its huge potential and natural beauty.

I propose to guide you around the most important areas of the Dinaric Alps. This is a mountain chain that goes along several countries; in Croatia, it extends for more than 600 kilometers along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. 

Some of the places where I would like to take you for a hike are Northern Istra, Gorski Kotar, Velebit and Lika. In fact, those are the places that I know best and where I’ve spent most of my hiking experience.

I love nature and I’m a very active person. That’s why I enjoy so much spending time in the forest.

We can organize hiking trips lasting from only 1 day to 3 complete days. Below, you can read a little bit about each of these spots in Croatia:


It’s a group of mountains that belong to the Dinaric Alps. The highest peak there is Vaganski, at 1757 m. There are many protected areas in this region, as it’s surrounded by deep forests with a wide variety of fauna.

Gorski Kotar  

This mountainous area is covered by forests. Because of that, it is known as “the green lungs of Croatia”. In fact, Risnjak National park lies in this are area full of interesting places and natural beauties.

Lička Plješivica (Lika)

It’s a mountain in Croatia, lying right in the border with Bosnia & Herzegovina. It belongs to the Dinaric Alps and it’s mostly covered by forest. It’s also close to Plitvica Lakes National Park, the largest protected area in the country.

Ćićarija (Northern Istra)

In the North of the Istria Peninsula, Ćićarija stands out as a high mountainous plateau. It’s almost entirely in Croatia, although it has a small Slovenian part. The highest peak in the area is Veliki Planik (1272 m).

Please contact me if you want to go hiking in Croatia. We can arrange a trip in some of these areas according to your time and wishes. I’ll be glad to show you the wonderful mountain regions of this country!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1980 and I live in Rijeka, Croatia. I’ve always loved nature and I am a hiker since 2004. In 2011, I became a member of the Croatian Mountain Guides Association and then, in 2013, I received the UIMLA certification.

I mostly guide in the Dinaric Mountains of Croatia, organizing trips in areas of Gorski Kotar, Velebit and Lika.

I practice standard hiking and orientation in the forest. In fact, I really like to listen and feel the forest, especially in dusk and dawn when most of wildlife observing happens.
