About the experience

This Paklenica hiking tour is a result of us contemplating on how to present you all that this area of Zadar region and Velebit mountain have to offer. It includes guided hiking through the Paklenica National Park and Paklenica canyon, visit to local huts, stops for a short picnic with local delicacies on the menu, and lunch that includes traditional specialty menu (meat or octopus prepared under the famous baking lid, or some other one) prepared just for you. The whole tour is thoroughly documented as you are accompanied not only by two guides but also a professional photographer that will capture these precious moments forever. Transfer to Paklenica and back is included - we depart at 8:00 from Zadar, and return at 16:00 from Paklenica.
