Really nice scenic place with numerous climbing points and hiking routes. Beautiful nature and seaside location makes this place very attractive for daily tours and for longer vacation.

Entrance fee is 25kn with a student card or 40 without. This does increase during summer months. Personally, I would recommend this park over Krka. It was much less busy and I found the rock structures + views far more interesting. The main walk to...More

Amazing view, great for one day trek. It is located in Starigrad, northern Dalmatia, at the southern slopes of Velebit mountain, not far from Zadar. It has two canyons: Mala (Small) and Velika (Big) Paklenica.

I am true hiker from Croatia and now Velika Paklenica. This is great canyon that has been furnished for visitors, but not in the right way: first part of path (very steep) is made of old rocks filed with concrete so it is very slippery!...More

We spent a whole day in this park, amazing nature and offers a lot of activities, we rented bikes and had amazing tour provided by small local company. Don't miss it! It is little bit distanced from the city but worth to visit for sure

Loved this place. Rocky mountains and trails with stunning scenery. Would recommend a visit if you're anywhere near although it's definitely worth travelling to!

There's no lakes in the park. You can dip into the river or, even better, go for a swim in the sea, which is richt by the entrance.
