First Time


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.

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!
