A speed boat will be waiting to take you to the Prvić Island which is only 15-minute ride away (departure from Sveti Juraj at 10:30 a.m.). This uninhabited island is an ornithological reserve and natural habitat of various birds such as Griffons, Vultures, Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Eleonora Falcons, Sea Cormorants… There you will stay until 2:30 p.m. You will get a chance to see the birds, swim in clear blue waters, and maybe even see dolphins around the island.

Return to Sveti Juraj is planned around 3:00 p.m. where you will have a lunch break until 4:00 p.m. Our recommendation is also to visit the Birds of Prey Conservation Centre which is very close to Sveti Juraj and where you can see the sheltered birds. The trip continues to the Northern Velebit National Park, a famous mountain hut and peak Zavižan which is at 1.594 m above the sea level. The planned arrival is at 5:00 p.m. After an half-an-hour rest at the mountain hut and its surroundings (from which you have a spectacular view of the Adriatic Sea and surrounding islands, including the Prvić Island), we will go deeper into the Park to see its wildlife, including bears, wild horses, different birds, leaps). This is the best time of the day to try and see the animals in their natural habitat. Our tour guide will take you to the locations where the animals are most likely to be seen.

You will stay in the Park until 8:30 p.m. since the days are quite long at this time of year. Arrival to Sveti Juraj is planned at 9:30 p.m. from where you will depart back to Zagreb, taking with you amazing experience and photos. Arrival to Zagreb is planned around 12:00 p.m.
