Spend at least a day hiking in Croatia


Hiking in Croatia has its beginnings within organized mountaineering. Back in 1874. Croats were also ninth in the world that had their own mountaineering club. The second period of mountaineering began in 1948. That year was the mountaineering association “Zagreb” formed. Which was swiftly followed by a number of other associations. Mountains are becoming more accessible due to road construction, cars, homes and trails. In Croatia, there are about 20,000 hikers.

Most of the mountains for hiking in Croatia belong to the Dinara Mountains (from the Slovenian and Montenegrin border). Therefore to a lesser extent, to the eastern continuation of the Alps and the rest of the old Oriental mainland up between the rivers Sava and Drava. The mountains are not high. Hence Croatia is the only country in south-eastern Europe without a peak higher than 2000 meters.
