Request
Available until 2019-02-28

Day 1

Welcome to the adventure destination

Arrival at the apartment, situated only 500m from the Paklenica National Park. Swimming, exploring Starigrad. In the evening, become a romantic and enjoy the special sunset.

 

Day 2

Cycling below Velebit

A guided bike trip around the Paklenica National Park enables you to enjoy the beautiful Paklenica riviera and to experience a piece of history. Relax and cycle through small villages below the mountain from 9.30 until 15.30. There might be time for swimming and relaxing on one of the beaches.

RC Tip: You will be given all the necessary equipment: a bike and a helmet, as well as additional equipment (tools) and a map of the area. You should bring shorts, a T-shirt, sports shoes, sunscreen, water and a picnic lunch.

 

Day 3

Experience rock climbing

Take the 2-hour Climbing Tryout, a sports climbing package designed for beginners who want to learn the basics. The climbing will take place at a designated area within the park (instructions available from the rangers upon arrival at the national park). We will start with a short introduction and an easier route; more experienced climbers can also show their skills and choose their own climb at the spot.

RC Tip: Don't break anything!

 

Day 4

Sea refreshment with sea kayaking

Want refreshment? How about sea kayaking? Embark on a unique experience on the Adriatic sea and look at Velebit from a different perspective.

After receiving instructions on the beach in front of the Vicko hotel in the centre of Starigrad, we will set off towards the open sea and the town of Vinjerac. Upon arrival, enjoy the image of this quiet town. Kayaking and swimming in the crystal clear blue sea at the foot of the imposing Velebit will make your day.

 

Brief itinerary of the excursion:

10.00 – arrival at the destination – Starigrad Paklenica

10.15 – preparations for the excursion and instructions by the guide

10.30 – start of the excursion

12.00 – swimming break on the Vinjerac beach

15.00 – end of the excursion in Starigrad Paklenica

16.00 – departure

 

RC Tip: Don't forget to bring a bathing suit, shorts, a T-shirt, water sandals and a towel, as well as spare clothes and footwear, sunscreen, water and snacks.

 

Day 5

Visit to Manita Peć cave

Today, we recommend an easy hiking trip to the Manita peć cave (15 minutes from the apartment on foot), located at an altitude of 570 m above sea level within the national park; the walk will take around an hour and a half. The cave drips with flowstones, it is rich in underground fauna and it is the home of many bat species.

On your way back, find a rock with cool spring water, feel the freedom of Velebit and take it home with you.

 

RC Tip: The Manita peć cave is open to visitors from 10.00 to 13.00, so we recommend that you start the trip at 8.00. Also, in May and June the cave is open only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

 

Day 6

Trip to the city with the most beautiful sunset

Use this day to visit Zadar, located just 40 km from Starigrad. If you don't drive, we recommend you use the local bus (cca 4 EUR/person); it's a great opportunity to have a chat with a local sitting next to you. Experience Zadar however you want, just don't miss the Monument to the Sun and the Sea Organ. In 2016, Zadar was named Europe's Top Destination and its charm will certainly leave a mark in your memories of Croatia.

 

Day 7

Horizontal day

A little rest never hurt anybody. Gather your impressions, make your friends jealous on social media, float in the sea, sunbathe, read a book in the natural shade, and spend your evening on the terrace in one of Starigrad's many cafés or your apartment, in good company, with a glass of the best local wine or brandy.

Stay up late.

 

Day 8

Check-out from the apartment by 10.00. Come again and we'll prepare new challenges!
