    3National parks
    Five out of the eight national parks in Croatia are within easy reach.

    Kornati is one of the most popular national parks, an archipelago of more than a hundred islands and islets. There you can get lost in the harsh nature and rich history - bathe in the crystal clear sea and stay in one of the old houses without contact with the outside world - the perfect way to escape from the hectic life. Expect to see a 13th-century church, high cliffs, lighthouses, an old fishing village and other landmarks. You can easily start your excursion to the Kornati islands in Zadar by joining a group excursion.

    Northern Velebit and Paklenica are the right destination for lovers of mountains and hiking. Located on Croatia's longest mountain, due to the unique mosaic of habitats for numerous plant and animal species, as well as the diversity of karst forms and landscapes, these two national parks are a unique insight into a completely different nature from the one on the island of Pag, only an hour and a half away from Novalja.

    Both national parks are included in five European pilot areas as part of the Rewilding Europe project - a restoration project, that is, restoring nature to its original, wild state.

    The Plitvice Lakes National Park is an indispensable destination for many local and foreign tourists, who can admire 16 lakes and incredible waterfalls each year. The process of tufa formation, forms tufa barriers and creates the lakes, is a unique value that makes Plitvice Lakes a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park offers visitors eight tour programs, four hiking trails, and is open year-round. It is less than two and a half hours by bus from Novalja.
