Hiking, Biking and Swimming in the Sea
Velebit mountain is a hikers paradise, with it’s 145 kilometers in length and the area of 2200 square kilometers it is by area by far the largest mountain in Croatia.
It contains incredible diversity of different areas with different vegetation, different viewpoints and different vibe. While hiking you can have a feeling that you are on a totally different mountain every 20 minutes of walking. Forests, steep white rocks, huge meadows and magnificent views of the Adriatic Sea and it’s islands interchange all the time.
You can hike on your own during, before or after the festival or you can join some of the tours organized by the festival (free for visitors of the festival). You can find detailed hiking maps here or in maps.me app.
Also you can go mountain biking for which some of the maps you can find here. If you bring your bicycle with you we highly recommend to have a downhill ride on the road from Baške Oštarije to Karlobag – 20 km of pure downhill joy overlooking the mounatain and the sea.
The sea is only a 20 minutes drive away 🙂
