Established in 1999, Northern Velebit is the youngest of eight national parks in Croatia. This part of the Velebit Mountain is a true patchwork of the most diverse habitats that are home to countless plant, fungus and animal species – a wealth that is yet to be explored in its entirety. It is this diversity of kart formations, wildlife and landscape, to a large extent created by man, which was the main reason for setting up the Northern Velebit National Park. Northern Velebit National Park is an ideal destination for all those looking for active holidays and outdoor activities – mountaineering, hiking, trekking, cycling. There are some thirty mountain tracks crisscrossing the Park, which provide numerous possibilities for exploring the area. Hikers will be able to discover some of the most beautiful and fascinating parts of this region.
