Hiking and Walking trails on island Krk

Hiking trails can be divided into lungomare trails following the coast of the island and passing through numerous bays and easy or difficult hiking trails. Easy hiking trails are also intended for a wider circle of walkers and mostly intersect the beautiful interior of the island. Heavier hiking trails are intended exclusively for active walkers and mountaineers. The attractiveness of such trails is complex contrast of natural features like Mediterranean climate – warm Summers and mild Winters, cold land wind from the north Bura, humid south and a pleasant summer westerly Maestral. Also,on the trails you will have contact with historical and ethnographic attractions and get to know unique flora and fauna of island Krk. There are also several peculiar phenomena – for example, the Krk flora contains about 1400 species of terrestrial plants, almost half of the total flora in Croatia.

You can chose easy or more difficult trails around six cities: Krk, Punat, Malinska, Vrbnik, Dobrinj and Baška. If you would walk 4 hours a day for two weeks you could explore whole island on foot. On the highest mountain peak Obzova (570 m) you will lose the feeling that you are on an island. It is incredible that one island can offer so much diversity to enjoy untouched nature connected with cultural and historical monuments. Connected as a whole, the trails lead from one island place to another, thus enabling an interesting exploration of Krk on foot. Most hiking trails on the island of Krk can also be used as bicycle paths.
