Kornati National Park & Nature Park Telašćica (7 Days)

Kornati National Park & Nature Park Telašćica (7 Days)

This is the perfect adventure for those who want to combine kayaking, relaxing and hiking. We'll camp on the Island of Levrnaka, just over the unique egg shape pebble beach in sandy bottom Bay of Lojena.

We’ll paddle under the rugged cliffs that are rising from 90 meters deep and up to 180 m high above the sea level. The longest cliff is 1350 meters long.

We’ll hike the most interesting tracks of the Islands admiring the miles and miles of dry walls that are built all over the Islands.

We’ll visit the Nature Park Telašćica and its Salt Lake Mir (Peace) that is almost touching the Adriatic Sea.The highest cliff of this Park is rising 200 meters above the sea.

We’ll admire the view on the whole archipelago from the top of Kornat Island and hike further to Magazinova škrila, a 9,100m2 large, even, bear surface of limestone.

The islands of a large-scale sea surface were proclaimed a national park in 1980 due to their exceptional scenic beauty, interesting geomorphology, indented coastline and significantly abundant biocenosis of aquatic ecosystems.

Join us and find out from our guides some more stories about the historical, cultural and nature heritage.
