A paradise for rock climbing

Rock climbing in Paklenica National Park in Croatia is known as one of the top European rock climbing areas. In addition, Paklenica is a place of outstanding natural beauty and exceptional diversity. Paklenica is a unique place to visit due to its morphological phenomena and forms, diverse flora and fauna, and attractive landscapes. It covers the area of Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica. With their distinctive canyons carved vertically into the south slopes of Velebit Mountain, it forms great hiking routes.

Paklenica is awesome

Rock climbing in Paklenica varies a lot. From single pitch sports routes to big wall climbing routes up to 350 m. Absolute beginners to the most experienced rock climbers can equally enjoy. In total, the area covers over 340 routes. All on good quality limestone rock, therefore Paklenica is waiting for you. The majority of the routes are bolted. The most popular rock climbing spot in Paklenica is Anica Kuk. It’s popular, because of the 350 m high multi-pitch wall.
