HIKING ADVENTURE IN PAKLENICA NATIONAL PARK

While we like to say that we will conquer a mountain, Velebit is a kind of a mountain that conquers its visitors.

Paklenica National Park covers the area of torrent flows of Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica, and their distinctive canyons carved vertically into the south slopes of Velebit and the broader surrounding area. The relatively small area has an abundance of geomorphological phenomena and forms, diverse flora and fauna, attractive landscapes and intact nature. Diverse habitats in the area of Paklenica, along with elevation stratification, provide a home for diverse fauna.

Distinctive features of Paklenica National Park are autochthonous forests of black pine, several types of beech forests and deep canyons with torrent flows of Velika and Mala Paklenica. Wider area of Paklenica National Park prides itself with rich and diverse cultural heritage. Apart from being a paradise for hikers, Paklenica is also a well known climbing destination that attracts visitor from all over the world.

This unique trip will take us to explore this amazing area on foot and hike to the highest peak of Velebit Mountain. Nights will be spent in an authentic mountain hut overlooking the canyon. We promise you an adventure you will never forget!
