OVERVIEW – Hut to Hut Hiking Adventure

Hut to Hut Hiking Adventure

There is something special about Velebit Mountain that can’t be easily described. Apart from magnificent peaks, rich plant and animal life and stunning views that people can can enjoy while exploring this mighty chain there are many other hidden treasures that make Velebit a unique place for nature lovers. Special energy that the fusion between the mountain and the sea creates, hundreds of well maintained trails for all hiking levels and series of mountain huts located in the best spots are just some of the highlights that deserve attention.

For this hiking adventure we chose the famous Premuzic Trail that runs along the mountain ridge through the most beautiful parts of the mountain with the Adriatic Sea and islands stretching on one side and continental Croatia on the other. The trail was built at the beginning of 20th century and named after its constructor. It was engineered to provide gentle hiking without any steep ascents or descents with the most stunning views you can imagine. Mountain huts are situated in perfect locations that allow 5-6 hours of hiking per day with enough time to rest and enjoy the experience.

The trip starts with a drive to Zavizan peak at 1678 m (5505 ft) above sea level, the beginning of Premuzic trail. This is a part of Northern Velebit National Park recognized for its preserved biodiversity, richness of natural phenomena and pristine wilderness. The trail is 57 km (35 mi) long and ends in Baske Ostarije, the first town that we will encounter on our way.

This tour will be guided with additional vehicle support so we won’t have to carry all our things each day. Breakfasts and dinners will take place in the acccommodations and lunches will be picnic style. We will be accommodated in dormitories in huts or hostel for the last night. With an abundance of stunning views, open air activity, fresh air and authentic local experience this will definitely be a trip you will never forget!

For those who want to continue exploring some more challenging sections of Velebit Mountain we created an extension from Baske Ostarije to Paklenica National Park that includes more hours of hiking each day and some steep ascents and descents. Apart from being a paradise for hikers, Paklenica is a worldwide known climbing destination due to its amazing rock formations. If you prefer, you can also decide to rock climb at the end of the extension (optional).
