Paddling through the Velebit canal, National Park Paklenica
The thousand years of the rapidly flowing streams of the Velika and Mala Paklenica canyons, with their sources high up in the Velebit Mountain, formed at their base the fertile plain and peaceful shore that make the site of Starigrad town. As a center of the Paklenica Riviera it is small but lively tourist center with somewhat more than one thousands inhabitants, who exchanged their traditional manner of life in the foothills of the Velebit for life alongside the sea some half a century ago. Starigrad is not merely a pleasant seaside resort, but also a traditional gathering place for hikers and climbers, adventurers and scientists, and all nature lovers who come to enjoy the beauties of the area.
Stand up paddling offers a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. It delivers a full-body workout so it has become a popular cross-training activity. Once you stand at your full height, you can enjoy unique views of everything around you. Today we will use them to explore the area around Starigrad. After some instructions on the beach in front of hotel Vicko we head out towards the open sea.
