Full description
The tour begins in Velika Paklenica canyon, a European and world-famous place for rock climbing and mountaineering. This tour will pass the bottom of the canyon, a path that has been historically used for trafficking with Lika situated on the opposite side of Velebit. The trail meanders by the stream and ascents at the beginning and then it is almost flat all the way to the mountain hut. On the way, you will be able to try fresh and clean water from the stream and enjoy the sights of untouched nature.

Upon arrival in a 100-year-old mountain hut, you will receive a warm welcome by an always pleasant and cheerful host awaiting you with homemade brandy, tea and juice made of Velebit herbs as well as honey. It is possible to have a meal at the mountain hut of a traditional dish called 'Peka,' baked under 'the bell' on fire. You can choose from more options such as barbecue, bean, omelette or cooked vegetable. 

The break is followed by a visit to an area of houses built into the rock joints. After that unusual sight, head back towards the beginning of the canyon.
