North Velebit National Park covers 109 km2 of the northern section of the Velebit mountain, the largest mountain in Croatia. On the southern side of the mountain, there is Paklenica National Park, so practically the whole of the Velebit mountain is a nature park. It is recognizable by its conserved biodiversity, the abundance of natural phenomena, and experience of pristine wilderness.
A surprising abundance of vegetation and natural beauty can be found in this national park, especially in the Zavižan-Balinovac-Velika kosa botanical reserve, famous for its outstanding collection of species of mountain flora. The park reserve is protected and visitors cannot pass through except on assigned trails. The Park is crossed with numerous mountaineering trails and one of the most popular is the Premužić’s Trail, which leads you through the most interesting parts of the park.
