Along with the sense of exploration that comes with hiking, scrambling adds an even more thrilling aspect to it. And on this full day trip through the Velika Paklenica canyon in the Paklenica national park in Croatia, I would like to take you scrambling through several beautiful areas.

During this tour you will get to visit, explore and climb the Anica Kuk (712m). This amazing and famous rock is the largest rock on the Velebit mountain. Surrounded by vibrant green meadows and crystal clear natural spring water, Anica Kuk is a fantastic highlight on this trip. We will scramble our way to the top, and while the ascent will be tough at times, the rewards are well worth it because from at the top you will be granted magnificent views of the coast, as well as some great nearby peaks.

Scrambling is a unique way to explore an area. It involves trekking through an exposed walking route. Hence giving you a sense of excitement that you may not get on a traditional hiking route. However, because of the nature of scrambling, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition and have prior scrambling experience.

If you are looking for a unique, challenging and thrilling way to explore the beautiful Velika Paklenica canyon, this is the trip for you. I have no doubt you will have an amazing experience. So send me a request and let the fun begin.

Would you like to take a more traditional hike through the Paklenica national park? Then join me on this full day trip that will give you access to some amazing viewpoints.

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!

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!!

Thank you much to Danijela, Ferdo and Joseph. We had a wonderful day climbing with you all. You planned the day just as we had imagined and picked great routes for us. It was loads of fun, though my toes did not thank you the next day! X
