Description

This Mystic Velebit hiking tour is an adventure that will captivate you in many ways!

First of all, I’ll pick you up in Starigrad and we’ll drive for an hour along the beautiful seaside road to reach Karlobag. This is a cozy and small town located between the Velebit mountain range and the sea. So it’s a wonderful blend of crystal clear waters and amazing Croatian mountains!

From Karlobag we’ll continue driving up to Baške Oštarije pass. And on the way up, we’ll make a short stop at Kubus, a monument shaped as a cube and made of rock. With an altitude of 927m, it has an amazing views over the town of Karlobag, the island of Pag and the entire Velebit Channel.

Then we’ll continue to the Middle Velebit area between Veliki Alan and Baške Oštarije. This area is known for its stratified terrain. Also it is a geological wonder made out of Karst. During our hike, we’ll see beautiful peaks separated by bays.

The Velebit hike will take us about 4 hours. We’ll go to the top of the Velebit peak which has a great view of the surroundings. Also we’ll be able to see a deep karst cave on the way up.

So come to discover the wonders of this mystic paradise and have a fun day in the outdoors!

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!!
