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.

About the guide

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!

What people are saying about Danijela



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.


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.



Experienced, friendly and engaging. Danijela helped both of us improve our technique, selected routes that were challenging but at the right level for each of us. We had a really brilliant day. Highly recommended.



We only have really glowing things to say about the trip and our guides. They were a lot of fun, and extremely knowledgeable. They adjusted the plan as we went to pick routes we'd like the best and had great feedback on continuing improvement.



Paklencia is a beautiful area to climb and Danijela was very knowledgeable and fun to climb with. I would definitely come back again!
