Most of our programs are designed so that every healthy person in average fitness condition can enjoy them. The programs take place on such terrains where the use of technical equipment (ropes, cables, etc.) is not required. We offer the following trekking programs:

Ugljan - Sunset at the top of the island

The trip begins by taking the ferry from Zadar to Preko on the island of Ugljan. With shorter stops for panoramic viewing, we reach the highest peak on the island of Ugljan, St. Michael's, at 263 meters. A former medieval Benedictine monastery from the 12th century, which later served as a Venetian fortress that was used for defensive purposes, is located right above Preko. Although in ruins, now it is a hidden excursion site that offers a breathtaking view of the city of Zadar, as well as the many islands of the archipelago, and the Kornati National Park.

With unforgettable views of the entire surroundings, you will enjoy the spectacular sunset, when daylight turns into shades of red and blue and the mighty fiery sun sets directly into the sea. Upon return you will be able to enjoy the night view of the city of Zadar and the play of many lights in the coastal towns and villages.

After the break and time for relaxing, we'll climb through the shade of 100 year old forests to a height of 500-600 meters, and then descend the hill through old abandoned villages until we reach a plateau with a view of the entire canyon, and the Anića Kuk cliff (712 meters).
