Destinations: Paklenica National Park - Croatia

The Paklenica National Park lies along the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia. Zadar is about 46km to the SW. The centre-piece is the spectacular Velika Paklenica gorge, though this can be packed with rock-climbers and so is not always the best place to find wildlife. Chamois are on the high-tops, the rugged karst here hosts Rock Partridge, Rock Thrush, Rock Dove, Rock Nuthatch and Rock Bunting lower down. In summer reptiles include Dalmatian Algyroides and butterflies are everywhere. Paklenica is a great place for those who like to combine trekking and wildlife watching.
