Description

On this incredibly popular hiking tour, I would like to guide you through the Paklenica national park in Croatia.

The Paklenica national park is a sprawling area full of natural beauty and wonder. Full of lush green, canyons and more, it is a great place to spend a day and a great place to escape any stresses you may want to leave behind.

From the park entrance, we will begin our trek that will last approximately 8 hours including breaks and lunch at the hut. From forests to ridges, you will get to enjoy fantastic viewpoints of the park. And because we will be hiking at an altitude of approximately 850 meters, you will get to admire the Paklenica national park from a number of fantastic vantage points.

A couple of great highlights that we will visit during this trip include a 100 year old mountain hut, where you can enjoy some local food and brandy tasting. And if you're really hungry, you can have some peka, which is a delectable barbecue dish. We will also visit an area full of houses built into the rocks called Sklopina.

This is a moderate level trip. We will be trekking on rocky terrain along with the tourist trail. As a result, participants on this trip should have some previous hiking experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

Trekking through the Paklenica national park is a memorable experience. And to enjoy that experience all you have to do is send me a request. The views you will get during this trip are incredible, so be sure to bring your camera! 

I also lead a shorter, easier version of this trek that will take you through the Velika Paklenica canyon.

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!

Hicimos un viaje de senderismo de tres días en Paklenica / Velebit mountains: nos encantaron las montañas, las vistas y la gente amable. Danileja y Ferdo fueron guías maravillosos y capaces que conocen muy bien las montañas y nos sentimos muy seguros con ellos. Tuvimos una pequeña cabaña en las montañas durante dos noches y disfrutamos de la paz y la naturaleza al máximo. Se ocuparon de todo lo que necesitábamos y hicieron que nuestros días fueran muy especiales.
