Rock Climbing


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

Croatia's coastal mountains are composed of karst, a highly porous limestone that makes for wonderful rock climbing. Following are the best rock climbing destinations in Croatia:

Paklenica National Park
There are nearly 400 routes to climb in Paklenica suitable for everyone from beginners to seasoned climbers. The most famous is the 350m-high cliff face known as Anica kuk.

Baska on Krk Island
The mild climate allows climbing year-round on the rocky range framing Baska beach.

The wall of mountains between Baska Voda to Mt Biokovo behind Makarska offers 200m to 400m routes.

Marjan Forest Park in Split
The southern cliffs attract climbers every April for the Marjan Cup. It's easy to get a foothold (sorry) on Marjan by taking an organized four-hour rock climbing tour with an instructor. All equipment is furnished and the tour is suitable for all levels, even beginners. More info.

Zlatni Rt, Rovinj

The variety of routes makes it suitable for beginners and the sea views are stunning.

Travel Insurance

No matter which outdoor activity you engage in, I highly recommend that you purchase a travel insurance policy. You'll get the best possible deal by going through Travelex. The policies are flexible and can be purchased or upgraded at any point in your trip. Prices are highly competitive and coverage includes 24-hour emergency assistance, trip cancellation, theft, full medical reimbursement and an option for coverage of a wide range of adventure sports. There are also a number of extras such as travel alerts, language guides and on online travel journal.
