Are you ready for an unforgettable journey through the serene landscapes of Croatia? Our Hut to Hut Hiking tour offers you the unique opportunity to explore the tranquil wilderness of the Velebit Mountain range.
The wilderness of Northern Velebit, coupled with the panoramic views of the Adriatic, makes this experience characteristically different from other hut-to-hut hiking in other countries.
You’ll be hiking on the Premuzic Trail, a masterpiece crafted by forestry engineer and mountaineer Ante Premuzic, as it winds its way across the rugged terrain of the Velebit mountain range.
This 57-kilometre-long trail, constructed using the drystone technique, has endured harsh weather and wear and tear for more than 90 years. It’s a testament to craftsmanship and endurance, offering one of the best ways to explore the Velebit region.
But this adventure is not just about hiking — it’s about immersing yourself in an authentic way of hiking in the Croatian mountains. You’ll sleep in traditional mountain huts, one even one-manned, adding to the authenticity of the trip.
We’ve taken care of everything to make your journey hassle-free. You’ll be accompanied by a local, English-speaking guide who knows these mountains like the back of their hand. We handle all transfers to the starting point and back after the hike, and there will be vehicle support throughout the hike in case something happens.
