Tour begins at Velika Paklenica Canyon, European and world famous place for rock climbing and mountaineering. This classic tour passes the bottom of the canyon, the path that has been used during history for trafficking with Lika situated on the opposite side of Velebit.
The trail meanders by the stream and besides ascent at the beginning, it is almost flat all the way to the mountain hut.
Upon arrival in a 100 years old mountain hut a guest gets a warm welcome by an always pleasant and cheerful host awaiting him with a homemade brandy, tea and juice made of Velebit herbs as well as honey. Tasting is followed by a traditional dish called “peka” , dish baked „under the bell“ on fire. After the meal we are visiting Sklopina site, an area of houses built into the rock joints.
