Northern Velebit is an ideal destination for all those who prefer active holidays and relaxation in intact natural surroundings where you can experience the charm of pristine wilderness. You will be able to choose from over 30 mountain trails that run through different landscapes offering you countless possibilities for exploring the region. For easier orientation, all mountain trails are waymarked with signposts installed at intersections stating the average hike duration in hours. Almost all of the trails lead to mountain peaks that afford magnificent views of the sea, the Adriatic islands and the region of Lika. The existing mountain trails and paths are also suitable for other activities such as trekking and hiking.

In and around the Park there is a network of partly dirt (macadam) and partly paved roads that are excellent for cycling and cycling tours of Velebit.

The dynamic change of landscape, the diversity of animal and plant life, and the vagaries of weather will inspire you to take photos to capture the magical moments on Velebit.

At Alan's Educational-Interpretive Center "Mountain Playhouse", you can get acquainted with the "Natura Species and Habitats" of the National Park (large carnivores, deep pits, rocky plants), and learn about the traditional shepherds’ lifestyle. There are three outdoor exhibits in front of the "Mountain Playhouse" (Gusty Wind, Water in Karst, Life of Shepherds). Apart from its use as a space intended for exposition-education purposes, this hut will soon also serve as an information point of the Park. The hut also contains a small souvenir shop.

If you want to rest and recharge your batteries, experience unspoiled nature with a sense of primeval wilderness, shepherds' dwellings on Alan will give you the ultimate experience. In each of them you can also learn something about the types of National Park.

To support your experience of the wild nature, we have installed information boards along some of the mountain trails.

The following services have been developed to help you explore the magical world of nature and cultural heritage of the area:
