Description

This Manita Cave hiking tour will take you around and under the beautiful Paklenica National Park, where you'll find a buried paradise!

While there are many underground formations in Paklenica National Park, Manita Cave is the only one suited for tourist sightseeing. It is a 175-meter long formation, with two broad chambers full of stalactites, stalagmites and cascades. Moreover, the cave is rich in underground fauna!

I'll meet you at the park's entrance. And we'll start walking towards the top of the Velika Paklenica Canyon where the views are amazing! We'll be able to see the vertical cliffs rise 700 meters above both sides of the canyon.

Then we'll go down to the cave, where we'll spend around 30 minutes. During this tour I'll show you many secrets of this intriguing underground world!

After the cave tour, we'll hike down to the bottom of the Canyon and walk along the creek to the mountain lodge. Here, you'll be able to have a mountain meal or you can bring your own packed lunch for a picnic.

So don't hesitate to contact me for this astonishing Manita Cave Hiking Tour! And if you're looking to enjoy Croatia's wilderness for a longer time check out this trip: Croatia 7-day hiking.

Mountain Leader

I was born in Zadar, but I grew up at the base of Velebit, the greatest Croatian mountain, and this shaped the rest of my life. Living in the nature gave me everything I dreamed of. In the same place I had mountains, river and the sea.
I am CMGA certified (Croatian Mountain Guide Association) and UIMLA guide (2013).
I love to explore new destinations, sharing them with nature lovers. And there's more than just the adventure. Indeed, I will take you to discover the locations learning the local people way of living and trying the traditional local food.
In the end, my goal is for you to take home the best memories of this experience!

Amazing experience. My daughter stated it was the best day of her 2 week holiday. That says it all really. Danijela and her partner were extremely professional and very friendly and helpful.

Was uncertain about having to pay upfront, but it all worked out nicely. We meet up with a couple of guides and we had a great time climbing.

The guide explained very clear and with useful examples all that we needed to know to enjoy our climbing course, even for those who were first-time climbers. The timing and pace was also perfect.

I chose the intermediate rock climbing trip with Danijela at Paklenica National Park. Without a doubt, it was the highlight of my entire trip throughout Croatia. I strongly recommend Danijela (and her assistant Ferdo) to anyone looking for a guided rock climbing experience. First, the instructions are clear on where and when to meet the guides. The trip started at 7am to beat the heat and the crowds. We stayed in nearby Zadar, which is about an hour away. Buses don't arrive that early, so . Uber is your cheapest option (unless you rent a car yourself). We had some trouble getting there, but Danijela was flexible with the time, which was sincerely appreciated. Second, the actual climbing is incredible. Danijela assessed my climbing ability and tailor-made a climbing experience suited to my abilities. I was challenged, which was exactly what I wanted. My only regret is that I did not book a longer trip, or perhaps a couple of days with the guides. They are incredibly experienced, and they gave me helpful climbing tips that I never learned climbing at my local crag. Without a doubt, they made me a better climber in the short time I was with them. Also, these guides are so knowledgeable and experienced that I never once felt unsafe. I always felt that no matter the route, they had me on belay, and my life was secure. The gear was also top quality. I have never had such a feeling of trust while climbing, and I just met them! Third, the guides are simply amazing people. We had great conversations the entire time, and they were friendly, funny, and caring. After the experience was over, they took us to a famous restaurant near the park. We were in a hurry to catch a bus (which they showed us exactly where the bus station was and when the bus would arrive), and they got the restaurant staff to serve us fast to make sure we would not miss our bus. Look no further!! BOOK THIS TRIP NOW! I cannot wait for the next opportunity I have to be in Croatia, as I already cannot wait to book another trip with them.

This was such an amazing experience! My wife and I had quite a bit of indoor climbing experience, but this was our first time outdoors. Danijela and her partner were amazing guides!! They were extremely knowledgeable, experienced, safe, and friendly. I could not recommend them more!!
