Crafting in the forest – Northern Velebit

Greetings, dear friends! Today I decided to share some photos of the Northern Velebit where we spent several days (at the beginning of this year). I never went there before, but the beauty of the nature just made me speechless. If you are one of those people who love to hike, Velebit is the place for you. If you just love to spend some time in the nature, and return home before dark, Velebit is also a place for you. This is also a National park and that means inside of the borders of the Park one can’t camp.
This trip does take some more time for preparation. If you decide to visit Velebit, you should take into consideration the weather, the roads and the peaks you want to visit, your group (everyone’s physical condition), and reservations one needs to make if you decide to sleep in one of those big houses.

We had two survival instructors with us and that was the only reason I decided to go on this adventure. The weather over there is really rough and tricky. We arrived there during the night and we had to walk for several hours during the blizzard. It was a real adventure and without skilled guides it could have ended really bad. The rest of the days we had some nice weather and had the privilege to see some amazing places.
