The island of Pag offers beautiful nature, magical beaches and rich gastronomy – but did you know it also offers great adrenaline activities? Read on to find out more about some adventurous things to do on the island and nearby.
If chilling on the beach isn’t enough for you and you’re looking for that adrenaline rush to get your heart pumping, Pag is the place to go. Water sports, rock climbing, even a visit to Mars – Pag has it all.
Mars on Pag?
Yes, you read it right. Wandering what Mars is like, but haven’t quite got the courage to apply for a volunteer programme? Just come to Pag! Ok, all jokes aside, there is actually a really cool trail on Pag called Life on Mars. As the bora wind is so strong on the island, it has turned parts of the island so barren that they look astonishingly similar to what you probably imagine when you think of the unexplored planet. Luckily, it is much safer.
There are three types of trails – Challenger (23 km), Active (14 km), and Light (7 km), so you can choose the one best suited to your abilities (and will).
The Adriatic sea is perfect for exploring, whether you want to dive in or surf on it. Relaxing on the beach in the morning, scuba diving during the hottest part of the day to cool off and windsurfing in the afternoon – fun is guaranteed. At Camping Village Šimuni we offer lots of great activities for you, for the kids, for everybody! You can rent everything at the site and ask our friendly staff for help. In the meantime, check out all the water activities we offer!
You can book an unforgettable adventure from the comfort of our camp. If you are an adrenaline junkie, we’ve got good news! Dalmatia isn’t only sea and beaches – it has plenty of other places to explore. River rafting, mountain hiking, even bungee jumping from the 92-metre Maslenica bridge! Release your wild spirit this holiday.
For all the climbers out there, Pag has some beautiful cliffs you can conquer. They have been formed by the bora wind, so you can expect some pretty spectacular shapes and pointy peaks (remember Mars?) and the view is, well, absolutely worth it.
At Stogaj there are 19 routes of different levels of difficulty, ranging from 10 to 60 metres. The routes are flat and vertical, oriented S, W and NW.
If you are looking for a really extreme experience, you can even go tandem skydiving. It is not for the faint of heart, but if you are not afraid of height, this might be the most memorable thing you can do this holiday. You take off in Zadar, enjoy a stunning 20-minute panoramic flight above Kornati and Paklenica national parks, then jump out of the plane in the safe hands of your instructor and glide above sea with a spectacular view of the island of Pag and Velebit mountain. You can even experience sunset skydiving – and according to Hitchcock, Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world! The landing spot is on the beach located between two national parks. Not to be missed!
If you are looking to shake things up a notch, come to Pag and treat yourself to some amazing adrenaline adventures – and afterwards you can always go for a casual dip and soak up the sun on one of its many heavenly beaches!
