    In the beautiful natural surroundings of Croatia’s Paklenica National Park, I would like to guide you on an advanced level climbing course.

    For people who rock climb on a regular basis, the goal is to often find the next challenge, to find that next wall where you can push yourself even more. And on the canyons of Paklenica, I can show you some walls that will satisfy your ambitions. However, this trip is not just a scenic climbing excursion. It is also an informative course that will help you advance your already developed skill level even more. In fact, the goal of this course is to help you transition from an experienced rock climber to a rock climbing leader in future expeditions. Hence providing you with a brand new set of skills that could precede a brand new set of goals.

    Over the course of the day, we will go over the following things.

    • How to lead sports routes without the safety of a top rope
    • Proper techniques for safe leading
    • How to use climbing equipment
    • Proper lead belaying techniques

    This course is reserved for advanced level climbers. So to participate on this trip you should have good lead climbing or prior top-rope experience, and want to learn how to climb lead. Multi-pitch experience is a plus, but not a requirement. It is also important that you are physically fit as well.

    It’s a big step becoming a leader in anything, particularly something as demanding and challenging as rock climbing. However, during this course in Paklenica, you will learn what is necessary to become a rock climbing leader. And you will leave a far more confident climber than you were when you arrived. So send me a request, and let’s start climbing.

    I also offer a custom, multi-pitch rock climbing trip in Paklenica as well.

    About the Guide


    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!

    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!!

    Thank you much to Danijela, Ferdo and Joseph. We had a wonderful day climbing with you all. You planned the day just as we had imagined and picked great routes for us. It was loads of fun, though my toes did not thank you the next day! X
