• Hiking excursion NP Paklenica

    Anića Kuk hilltop – approximately 5 hours of walking

    Due to its unique natural features, magnificent forests and extraordinary geomorphologic structures, the area of Velika and Mala Paklenica was proclaimed a national park in 1949. The Paklenica National Park stretches through an area of 95 km2, on the littoral slope of South Velebit under the zone of the highest mountain peaks Vaganski vrh (1752 m) and Sveto brdo (1753 m).

    Distinctive features of Paklenica National Park are autochthonous forests of black pine, several types of beech forests and deep canyons with torrent flows of Velika and Mala Paklenica.

    Anića kuk is the highest cliff on Velebit and the most remarkable cliff in all of Croatia. The cliff is over 300 meters in height, and it is famous for its diversity, overhangs and various natural puzzles for rock climbers.

    The top of Anića kuk is a great viewpoint from which you can see the canyon of Velika Paklenica and the highest peaks of Velebit, Maslenica bridge, as well as the archipelago around Starigrad Paklenica.
