61 kilometres of lenght makes Gacka the third longest underground river in the world. Gacka is incredibly clean, rich in oxygen and a home to many plant and animal species. The most famous among them is brown trout. Since the approximate temperature in summer is 11 °C, you will probably not want to swim in Gacka, but what you can do is take a walk through the old mills of Tonković and Majer well or enjoy the fishing. Besides fishing and kayaking, the region of Gacka offers other activities such as cycling and hiking on paths Humac – Gacka and mountain path Otočac – Zavižan. Settled close to the river Gacka, Otočac with its 4000 habitants is mentioned for the first time on stoneboard of Baška around the year 1100, and the name of the city which means ‘’small island’’ is due to the fact that it was actually established on the small island in the middle of Gacka. If you thought that advent fair is only for big cities, you are wrong because Otočac also has one. Every work day from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m. in the Museum of Gacka in the centre of Otočac you can see rich ethnographic and archaeological collection which takes only minutes of your time. Fans of animals can visit the mountain settlement Kuterevo 14 kilometres of Otočac where is a shelter of young bears which are separated from mothers and it is unique in the world. Krasno is settled near town Senj and it is the centre of National park North Velebit. In that mountain village there is a church of Mother of God of Krasno that was more visited than marian sanctuaries Marija Bistrica and Trsat where pilgrims came even by foot. Besides religious tourism, Krasno offers you to get to know the climate, flora and fauna and cultural heritage of Velebit. On four floors of the centre Kuća Velebita you can see the variety of animals but also of karst forms. However, the most interesting part are the underground pits which hide a fascinate world of fauna in constant dark. If you want to be speleologist for one day, Velebit is full of caves and pits and what makes it the perfect place. For a complete experience of Lika, you need to try its gastronomic offer. If you are interested in taste of trout which you surely noticed driving on Gacka, you can easily check it, but if you prefer meat, your palate will enjoy in homemade lamb under the ball. Lika is without any doubt destination that offers everything – active vacation, sport, fun, rich gastronomic offer, in short, something for everyone’s taste!
