Veladrion - Part Of The Northern Velebit National Park

Veladrion is situated at the foot of Mount Velebit, at the mouth of the Gacka River and the Adriatic Sea.  It is part of the Northern Velebit National Park, which makes it a special destination.


The value and beauty of Velebit’s nature has long been recognized. In 1978 Mount Velebit was added to the World Network of Biosphere Reserves as part of UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB). Three years later the entire Velebit became a nature park. It includes two national parks - Paklenica National Park in the south, which was designated a national park in 1949, and Nothern Velebit National Park in the north, which became a national park a half-century later. Northern Velebit, founded in 1999, is the youngest of the eight national parks in Croatia. Velebit is a mosaic made up of the most diverse habitats that are home to many varieties of mushrooms and plant and animal life, the richness of which we have just begun discovering. This diversity of karst formations, wildlife and landscape, which is largely man-made, was the reason why Mount Velebit was designated a national park.

Guest's Reviews
  • "A memorable experience. The meeting was held outdoors in the gazebo by the creek."

  • "Party at the pool was great! We stayed out long and we were loud, but it is a nice feeling that we did not disturb anyone. Forty of us were here "alone". Fantastic."

  • "I have not slept that well for a very long time. My window was wide open but all I heard was the murmur of the stream and the chirping of birds at dawn! Can we come here just to get some sleep?"

  • "We gave up on the meeting room - the terrace overlooking the sea inspired us to make innovative decisions."

  • "Back home I run for two hours every day. Here, if I could, I would run 24 hours. It is so unique because you can enjoy many different landscapes. I hope to come back again."

  • "We will remember you after your fantastic staff. Always at your service, but almost invisible."

  • "Having a five-hour meeting is much easier to endure while sitting next to an open window and breathing in fresh air. I love that your conference rooms have windows."

  • "Simplicity and warmth of your staff is what we were looking for. We felt like home."

  • "Mouflons we saw rounded the experience of the natural environment."

  • "During my stay I have totally forgot that I have a car. Everything is so close."

  • "I'm not a barbecue fan, but hanging out around the campfire on an islet along the creek and grilling fish on a stick was just amazing."

  • "Yesterday we had barbecue in shorts and tonight we have gala dinner accompanied by the saxophone and a breathtaking view of the islands. My business partners are overwhelmed, and so am I."

  • "Already at the welcome reception you prepared, we realized that it is such a shame we came for business reasons. We could spend the whole day next to that waterfall that flows into the sea. We will definitely come again for a vacation!"
