Description

Venture into the KRK, a beautiful island in the Adriatic sea. Unveil all the mysteries of this mesmerizing place in Croatia.

The KRK island is the largest one on the Adriatic sea. Its more than 409 square kilometers of wild and beautiful land make this a very unique and wonderful place to trek through. There are 68 settlements on this island, and only about 16,402 inhabitants.

One of the peaks we’ll visit is Obzova (560m) the highest in the island. We’ll also venture through Baška. Then we’ll head to the Vrženica canyon. This magnificent canyon goes through passages that start easy but become gradually more difficult, so a bit of free climbing will be necessary. But the hypnotizing views you’ll get will make it completely worth it!

We’ll also visit the island of Prvić. This charming place has an incredibly rich cultural heritage. Even the name of the island has an intriguing history. It is debatable whether it came from the Croatian god of spring, or the inhabitants named it like that. There are only two settlements here. And we’ll likely run into more animals than people. So walking through its old mediterranean streets made of stone, will only bring calm and peace as we’ll only hear the sounds of the ocean.

We’ll go from Baška to the highest part of the Krk island. Due to its rocky terrain and lack of vegetation, this area is also known as the moon hill. Then, we’ll go down to the Trigeta canyon. Here, we’ll need a climbing belt, helmet and technical equipment, as it gets more narrow the more we descend.

Please note you need a good fitness level for this trip. And you’ll require basic climbing knowledge. If you do so, and want to join this adventure, send me a request. It will be a wonderful trip you won’t forget!
