Velebit is rising directly from the sea and it makes natural border between two great regions; Adriatic Sea which is part of Mediterranean Sea and continental Europe (Lika region in Croatia). All along the mountain views are just fantastic! No matter from which point you look there are numerous islands to be seen. Views are especially beautiful when observed from bird’s perspective of high Velebit peaks. Islands are scattered like a pearls on the surface of the golden sea that is sparkling on the afternoon sun. On very clear days, after the Bura, rain or snow, Italian coast across the Adriatic Sea is visible, especially in the winter when the Apennines are snowy and shining (270-300km away!).
