Situated at 45 minutes drive from Zadar, the Paklenica national Park is nested in the southern part of Velebit mountain range. Velebit is the most beautiful mountain range of Croatia. It is also longest range of Dinaric Alps. Declared a Nature Park in its entirety, it harbors two National Parks, North Velebit & Paklenica. UNESCO declared Velebit as World's Biosphere Reserve.

With its surface area of 96 km2, from the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea to the highest peaks of the Velebit Mountains, Vaganski Vrh (1757 m) and Sveto Brdo (1753 m), Paklenica abounds with numerous natural wonders and phenomena, which is why the entire area was proclaimed a national park in 1949.

The most attractive and most valuable parts of Paklenica are surely the impressive canyons of Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica. This region is simple and unusual in its connection between the sea and the mountains, rich in beech and black pine forests, its deep canyons cut vertically into the Velebit ridge, its karst formations and numerous caves and pits.

During those 3 days several routes are possible depending on the level of difficulty that suits the participants. From 3­5 hours daily with 500 meters ascent to 7­9 hours daily with up to 1200 meters ascent, we can adapt an itinerary that will allow you to discover the most beautiful parts of the park away from the main tourist trails. Our guides are all licensed mountain guides of the Croatian Mountain Federation affiliated to the “International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation, UIAA”.


The two overnights will both take place in a typical Velebit mountain guesthouse which will be our starting base for the hikes on day 2 and 3. You will surely appreciate the fine local specialties and joyful ambient as well as the enchanting view. Feel free to contact us so we can define together an itinerary adapted to your wishes.
