is the largest though not the highest mountain range in Croatia. The range forms a part of the Dinaric Alps and is located along the Adriatic coast, separating it from Lika in the interior. Velebit begins in the northwest near Senj with the Vratnik mountain pass and ends 145 km to the southeast near the source of the Zrmanja river northwest of Knin
The Northern Velebit National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Sjeverni Velebit) is a national park in Croatia that covers 109 km2 of the northern section of the Velebit mountains, the largest mountain range in Croatia. Because of the abundant variety of this part of the Velebit range, the area was upgraded from a nature reserve in 1999, and opened as a national park in September the same year.
The whole of the Velebit range is a “nature park”, a lesser conservation category. Another national park on Velebit is the Paklenica on its southern side.

WHAT TO EXPECT
What a view! Take a ride up hill through one of our high altitude national parks to the Zavižan peak. A view overlooking the Primorje and its island. If you are lucky and the weather is clear you can see the cost of Italy. Don’t be surprised if you are standing in some snow while watching people swimming in the sea down below.
Be prepared for some uphill and long climbs. But don’t worry if this is too much we can take you closer to the top by van. This route can be moderated in many ways without loosing any highlights.
*Northern Velebit is a national park. Respect the nature! The mountain is know to change the weather quickly so allways have a wind jacket and spare clothes in your back pack.
