Beautiful and unique canyon hike, hardly any other hikers, stunning untouched nature. Quite strenuous as the first part is fairly steep up, climbing of some easy stones, not a problem if you are of good health though. Start early in the morning around 8am latest to avoid the direct summer sun for the ascent.

Hard trail during winter...a lot of water in the river and there are parts that are not able ti pass. You can pass only through the water 20-60 cm depth ( so take reserve clothes and shoes). We did it in the winter and it took us 8.5 hours from the parking lot of Mala Paklenica to the parking lot of Velika Paklenica. During summer there is no water in the river and the hike should be much easier.
