Enjoy an amazing rock climbing tryout on the beautiful Paklenica National Park with the local UIMLA Mountain Leader and CMGA guide, Danijela.
The Paklenica National Park is located in Starigrad, Croatia. The park is situated at the slopes of the Velebit mountain (1,757m) and is close to the old city of Zadar. There are two beautiful canyons that you can admire in the park: the Mala and Velika Paklenica canyons. The natural surroundings of this place will most definitely leave you in a state of awe.
On this climbing excursion, which will last two hours, I would like to introduce you to the wonderful activity of rock climbing. Like most physically demanding activities, rock climbing can be intimidating to most people. And because of that intimidation, I think an introductory course, like the one I am offering, is ideal for people who want to give rock climbing a try. During this course, I will make sure you learn the necessary basics for a safe and fun rock climbing experience.
No previous experience is necessary to participate on this trip. Participants do not require any prior knowledge about belaying and tying knots. You do not even require any indoor rock climbing experience either. Throughout this trip you will be secured on a safe top rope.
The Paklenica national park is an incredible place, filled with wonderful rock climbing. And even if you have never rock climbed before, on this introductory course, you can still have a great time. All you have to do is send me a request.
Would you like to explore more of the Paklenica National Park, as well as other Croatian natural highlights? Then come and join me on this week long hiking tour.

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!!
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.
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.
It was one of the best experiences ever!!! The guids were so nice and helpfull, took it at my pace, helped me feel confident with the rope and thought me what to do and what not to do I advise everyone to go try this course!!! Im sure to be checking with them again when I\'ll get back to croatia😊❤
Danijela was an amazing instructor and her passion for the sport was obvious. This was a great introduction to rock climbing.
On s\'y est pris un peu a la dernière minute, mais ces deux heures escalade avec nos deux guides étaient super ! Super sympa, et a l\'écoute de nos envies, on a pu faire plusieurs voies dans un cadre superbe. Ils donnent aussi volontiers plein de conseils pour la rando qui suit dans le parc de paklenika
We popped into the shop Danjela was out climbing so we booked on for a two hour evening climb the following day. It was amazing! Credo and Danjela were really encouraging helpful and passionate about their sport. The park is stunning but it the people who show you the ropes make all the difference! Thankyou so much for a fabulous experience!
We booked our first climbing lesson by Danijela and Ferdo. In one word fantastic! The teach really good and the now what they are saying. The give really good tips! I was with a friend and we did a couple of climbs at different levels. It was amazing to do! If we are back in Paklenica we are definitely going back to your company. You guys are amazing people with passion for what you are doing
We thought this was the best possible start to our climbing career. Our two climbing instructors, Danijela and Ferdo, were clearly very experienced climbers and fun, enthusiastic, and great teachers, while still safe and professional. They spoke excellent English. The equipment was modern and clean and it felt secure. All in all, it was a great experience and a good value for money. I would recommend it to any beginner seeking a safe but fun climbing experience. The early start is worth it to get the best spots!

Our kids aged 7 & 9 had a great couple of hours climbing under the instruction of Danijela and Ferdo, who had a great way with them (patient, fun, knowledgeable). Would definitely recommend!
This was the highlight of a 4 week trip to Croatia. Danijela is an incredible person and amazing climbing instructor. The scenery in the national park is out of this world. We booked a family session with our 5 and 7 year old and enjoyed it so much we booked another for the very next day. Excellent quality equipment and perfect English. Highly highly recommended for all levels.
Danijela and Ferdo were the best guides we have ever had. They were great with our kids, had all the equipment we needed and opened up some great routes for us all. Fully recommend them.
Je recommande à 200% ! 4h d\'escalade, de conseils et de partage dans un lieu magnifique. Nous sommes débutant et nous avons progressé en toute confiance grâce à Danijela et Ferdo. Vraiment top !
We had a wonderful climbing day with Danjela and Ferdo. They took great care of us, so we could learn a lot and really enjoy the Paklenica Canyon. Anyone who wants to visit the area and want to do something special should contact Danjela. We will definitely be back
Tuvimos un maravilloso día de escalada con Danijela y Ferdo. Nos cuidaron de nosotros, así que pudimos aprender mucho y disfrutar realmente de la Paklenica Cañón. Cualquiera que quiera visitar la zona y quieres hacer algo especial deben contactar Danjela. Sin duda volveremos :-)
