For all the restless spirits in eternal quest for an adventure we offer full day jeep safari excursion on Croatian largest mountain-Velebit. The mountain stretches in the form of banded arch along the Adriatic coast in the northwest-southeast direction, between the Vratnik pass and the river Zrmanja valley. It`s a part of Dinarid mountain range and can be characterized as a typical karst mountain. Its highest peak is Vaganski vrh (1757 m) situated in Paklenica national park.

The most conspicuous feature of Velebit mountain is the presence of the “two different faces” – one on the Adriatic coastal slopes and one on the continental slopes. The differences between them can be seen in the variety of features – vegetation, habitats and species, as well as in the habits of people living there. Velebit has very high biological diversity, 2500 plant species have been described and about hundred of those are endemic. Besides its natural beauties, the cultural heritage of Velebit mountain is equally rich and valuable. Evidence of human presence can be followed from prehistoric times until present days.

Safari starts from Maslenica bridge, 377 m long concrete bridge that connects ‪Zadar region with the rest of Croatia. The first stop is at Libinje plateau, a place famous for wild horses that live in the area. The trip continues towards Tulove Grede, a karst phenomenon located at‪ Velebit Nature Park. This karst formation consists of stone towers and pillars. The road across Tulove Grede was constructed in the 19th century. The local legends say that fairies and dragons used to live between these stunning and breathtaking cliffs. Beneath this cluster of rocks is situated a church of St. Francis that was built in 1832. by Austrian emperor Francis the I. The last stop is ‪Zrmanja river where one can enjoy in the beautiful and relaxing scenery and tranquility of the waterfalls.

    We had a wonderfull time on this break thanks to this organisation. We just told what we liked to do and they arranged everything. From pickup to meeting the guids, all went smooth and to plan.

    We did the Velebit jeep safari and our driver Marin was very knowledgeable on the mountain. We had a great local lunch in a farm on the trail and visited seberal places where the series Winnitou where filmed. Little Colorado was a dream to see

    Une journée exceptionnelle en jeep avec un guide exceptionnel.
    L’hiver peut sembler un peu compliqué pour faire l’excurtion mais notre guide a dû changer la route juste pour nous à cause de la neige ce qui nous a permis de voir des choses que nous n’aurions probablement jamais vues sans lui.
    vraiment l’un des plus beaux jours de notre voyage

    An exceptional day in a jeep with an exceptional guide.
    Winter may seem a little complicated to do the excurtion but our guide had to change the road just for us because of the snow which allowed us to see things that we probably would never have seen without him.
    really one of the most beautiful days of our trip

    Magnifique excursion qui vaut largement son prix. Nous sommes arrivés au pont Maslenica et la jeep nous attendait à l’heure indiquée. Nous sommes alors partis pour 8h de Safari où nous avons vu tout ce qui est décrit dans la présentation et avons pu profiter de nombreuses pauses pour profiter de la vue et faire de très belles photos. Le midi nous avons pu profiter d’un copieux buffet dans un gite au pied de la montagne. Le seul reproche à faire est l’absence d’explications en anglais pendant la visite guidée, nous nous sommes donc sentis exclus par moment. Hormis cela, activité fortement recommandée si l’aventure vous emmène en Croatie !
