Join UIMLA and CMGA certified guide Danijela for a half-day of intermediate level rock climbing in the amazing Paklenica National Park in Croatia.

1/2 Day

May - Nov




For this exciting rock climbing adventure, I would like to take you to some of the best intermediate level walls in the Paklenica National Park.

One of many fantastic highlights of Croatia, the Paklenica National Park is a great place for anybody who wants to enjoy nature. The views you will get of the park’s valleys and rivers are magical. And the thrill of climbing up the stone walls found in the park’s magnificent canyons, Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica, is unforgettable.

The purpose of this four hour intermediate level course is improvement. I would like to help you improve upon the rock climbing skills you already possess. I would also like to teach you some new skills as well. Hence giving you the opportunity to become a better overall rock climber. This will ensure that in the future you will be able to climb bigger, more challenging rock walls. As a result, the world of rock climbing will open up to you in a brand new way.

Participants in this trip should also be in good physical condition.

There is nothing quite like rock climbing in a beautiful, vast, open natural area. From the wind to the sounds, you get a feeling on the rocks that can’t be matched. And when you get to enjoy that feeling in a place as gorgeous as the Paklenica national park, you know you’re in for an adventure. So send me a request, come and experience it for yourself.

I also offer an introductory level version of this trip as well.

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 this trip



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.



The staff was very friendly and extremely professional. The instructors are not only passionate outdoor specialists but also provide excellent instruction for every level of climber. My wife and I are extremely happy with the guided outdoor climbing tour and recommend everyone with different level of skills to try their 2 hour class.



Danijela was the best! From the part where we only where interested, to the part where she drove us 'home' in our own car she was full of passion, enthousiasm - she is very responsible and knowledgeable - we would highly recommend her as a reliable guide, if you visit Paklenica.


With so many 5 star ratings, it shouldn't be a surprise that we also had a wonderful time on an intermediate rock climbing trip. Our 2 guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They adjusted our schedule to hit the routes we'd most enjoy, and gave great tips for building our skills. I would say this is as good as your friend taking you climbing, but your friend won't carry your gear or set your routes,so it's even better.



If you are considering climbing in Croatia, do yourself a favour and book in with Danijela and Ferdo. No matter what level you are, they are the most amazing instructors, and nicest people you will ever meet. Id go as far as to say that climbing with them was the highlight of our holiday, so much so that we were looking at plane tickets to visit again before we'd even got home. They have a level of professionalism i was super impressed with, and you felt safe with them at all times. They are incredibly genuine, and talented and passionate. You really can tell the difference when someone is passionate about what they do. For Danijela and Ferdo, the mountain is their home. They know it like the back of their hands, they respect it and everyone that visits, and then filled us with such awe and wonder, telling us all the tales of the mountain and the people who lived there, of the first climbers, and the famous climbers restaurant cafe where we got a bite to eat afterwards. They are so accommodating- me and my partner had an uber ride from hell in which a 40 minute ride became a 3 hour drive through the mountain. We were over 2 hours late, and I was panicky, messaging and apologizing, and they kept reassuring me it was fine and they waited til we got there, gave the taxi driver a talking to, and even stayed a little later to ensure we had a full experience, and drive us to the bus stop that would get us home afterwards. 100000% recommend them, and 10/10. Both me and my partner couldn't stop smiling.
