The Paklenica National Park encompasses the areas of the impressive canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica, vertically incised into the southern slopes of the Velebit Mountain. Composed of karst features, the Paklenica park abounds in highly varied rocky “sculptures”, which alternate with wooded valleys and mountain meadows.
Paklenica is also considered to be among the most famous European climbing centres. The climbing area is settled at very beginning of the canyon Velika Paklenica. The climbing site has over 400 climbing routes of various difficulty levels and lengths and the climbing season in Paklenica lasts from early spring until late autumn.
The beginner sport climbing course is intended for all beginners over the age of 16 (there is no upper age limit!) Who would like to gain some theoretical knowledge about rock climbing and rope technique for independent rock climbing.
