On the rough massif of Velebit, Paklenica National Park offers numerous outdoor opportunities for hiking, climbing and other sports. A designated UNESCO biological reserve, the park was established to protect the diverse flora and fauna, as well as the mountains themselves. Significantly due to the exposed white rock on the otherwise barren mountains and the sharply contrasting green forests below, Mala Paklenica and Velika Paklenica celebrate through the mountain range, creating their own dramatic high walls. The park is home to numerous species of birds and colonies, making it a paradise for bird watchers, and occasionally wildlife such as bears and wolves are recorded. The Parks Office is located in Starigrad (StariGrad-Paklenica) and provides everything you need for a safe visit, including maps and other useful information, along with exhibits and toilets (the entrance is in Marasovići, a little further north).
Hot Tip: Try to visit during the colder spring or fall months when the park is especially green and lush.
