The Premužić trail
Hiking National Park North Velebit will steal your heart with its stunning and diverse landscape. Croatia has a lot of wonderful hikes, but Velebit has a special place among them. This is the most popular hike through the Northern Velebit National Park and probably the best hiking trail in Croatia.
Named after its creator, Ante Premužić (1889 – 1979), the civil engineer and passionate mountaineer that built roads and trails on Velebit. The construction of the trail was completed in just three years (1930 – 1933), thus making it accessible to tourists. The trail is built using the drystone technique and is considered a masterpiece of trail building.
Hiking National Park North Velebit along the Premužić trail will hopefully really impress you. The trail is 57 km long and it goes through the most impressive karst formation you will ever see. This route is providing the easiest possible access to the most rugged and inaccessible sections of Northern Velebit. The difference between the highest and the lowest point of the trail is just 200 m, so the trail is perfect for hikers. The scenery is nothing but spectacular. Enjoy the smell of the sea and a million-dollar view of the Croatian Adriatic coastline and its islands, and join us on a hiking tour.
