Located at the foot of the Velebit mountain, close to the national park, Starigrad-Paklenica is a great choice for active guests.

1. Climbing

Starigrad-Paklenica is the most famous Croatian destination for sport climbing enthusiasts and alpinists. About 400 routes await climbers on all levels of abilities and experiences, from the best ones to the ones who have never tried climbing before. Courses are organised for beginners, and the experienced ones will be directed to routes that can be higher than 300 metres.

2. Hiking

As the Paklenica National park is one of the most attractive areas of Velebit, it is particularly popular among hikers. They are attracted by hornbeam, beech and black pine forests, enclosed by karst fields and beautiful meadows. Recreational hikers prefer the somewhat gentler Velika Paklenica, while the more experienced ones choose Mala Paklenica.

3. Trail

For those who do not know, the trail is relatively similar to hiking, but you are doing it - running. Saucony Paklenica Trail is held annualy; the international race starts in Starigrad, from where it moves to the racing conquest of Paklenica. Of course, you are free to come and run on the slopes of Velebit whenever you want. If you are a fan of running on a flat surface for humanitarian purposes, feel free to join "Wings for Life" race, which takes place in nearby Zadar.

4. Rafting and canoeing

You can go to the nearby river Zrmanja in a canoe or a bigger boat and battle with the wild waters. Rafting is more popular during the months when the water level is higher, while during the lower water level period, the canoe is more popular.

5. Cycling

In the vicinity of Starigrad there are 40 kilometers of cycling trails. The spectacular touch of the mountains and the sea makes them perhaps the most attractive on the Adriatic. Do not wait any longer than a minute, book the accomodation in Starigrad right now and go for the best adrenaline journey in your life.
