Divers generally require a diving licence. A licence can be purchased for around €15 at several diving centres and travel agencies along the Adriatic coast, and is valid for one year. Diving permits can only be issued upon the presentation of a certificate from an internationally accredited diving school. A comprehensive list of more than 150 diving centres is on the Croatian National Tourist Board website. The Croatian Diving Federation in Zagreb also provides information on dives and courses.

Climbers are mainly drawn to Paklenica National Park, where there are plenty of climbs to suit all abilities. A few islands in the lower reaches of the Cetina River also have free-climbing areas. On its website the Croatian Tourist Board provides information about various hiking and climbing options.
Paklenica National Park
The Paklenica region is the most interesting climbing area in Croatia. This is primarily due to its proximity to the Adriatic Magistral seaside route, along with climatic conditions that result in near-summer conditions during winter ascents, unlike Alpine countries. A large meadow known as Anica Luka lies at the foot of Anica Kuk. It has a spring and has been used as a camp by climbers for decades.
Unlike the cycle paths in Germany and Austria, Croatia’s also include a fantastic bit of island-hopping! And even more fun when you team up with other fellow cyclists! Many boat rental companies offer island-hopping trips with bicycles.
The hunting reserves in the Ravni Kotari region are suitable for hunting quail, pheasant and hares. Experienced hunters can also set off in search of the jackal. Small game hunting (hare, partridge, rock partridge and snipe) is possible on the fringes of the karst areas of the South Velebit, while wild boar, chamois, deer and the brown bear can all be found in the higher mountain regions. Hunting is only permitted with a valid licence. Additional information is available from the Croatian Hunting Federation.
