Croatian Hiking Festival to Take Place on 4–5 Sept

ZAGREB, 1 Sept, 2021- The Croatian Walking Festival, to start in Otočac this Saturday along the Gacka River and continue on Sunday in the area of Gospić, will be attended by 500 participants and no new applications will be accepted, the Lika-Senj County tourism board said on Wednesday.

Signs are being renewed along the hiking routes which are being checked so that there are no unexpected events along the way, the tourism board's president, Ivica Radošević, told Hina.

He added that 850 people had applied in all to participate, some of who have registered for both days. No more applications are being taken as the maximum number of participants a day has been restricted to 500, in line with epidemiological rules.

Most of the participants are from Croatia but there is also a significant number of visitors from Germany, USA, France, Norway, Slovenia and BiH. 

Local family farms will offer their wares to walkers in Čovići, Prozor, Ličko Lešće and Sinac and then on Sunday in Smiljan, Debelo Brdo, Bužim and Žabica.

Croatia's Walking Festival has this year become a candidate for the IML International Walking Association and an IML inspector from France will be overseeing the 4-5 September hike.
