Zavižan is one of the best-known localities in the Northern Velebit National Park. Mountain hut Zavižan is located at 1594 m above sea level, underneath the Vučjak peak.

Easy accessibility, the existence of a hut and other facilities (parking, sanitary facilities, rest areas, etc.) make Zavižan a very good point of departure for mountaineering tours of Velebit. If you climb up one of the mountain paths that lead to the surrounding peaks – lookout points – you will be rewarded by spectacular views of the Kvarner islands and Lika.
