This is most popular hiking tour that passes the right edge of the Velika Paklenica Canyon and reveals views of the most salient points of Paklenica National park. A pretty interesting tour for your camera. You will meet several faces of Paklenica: wild and stone, tame and wooded, combination of karst terrain and beautiful scenery.
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.
Return by a path that follows very bottom of the canyon along the creek Paklenica.
