As for fishermen and hunters, Knin is also a paradise for hikers and water sports lovers. Apart from the highest mountain top in Croatia (Dinara-Sinjal, 1831 m), there are numerous other challenges. Starting from the north, Knin is surrounded by mountains, – Orlovica, Vilica, Pljesevica, Bukovac, Badanj, Dinara, Kozjak, Svilaja, and Promina.
There is a small problem for all those who choose to hike: they might end up in a fairytale, an unusually beautiful landscape filled with dense forests, large rocks, mountain pastures, the nature untouched from the moment of its creation. And if they were very imaginative, that could pose a problem, a fairy tale might appear. They might even meet fairies from the old stories.
If you are exhausted from all this beauty, you may rest in the hiking house Brezovac (1050 m), situated in a beautiful beech forest, with a capacity of 36 beds and a kitchen. It is open for visitors and hikers every weekend, but you should first make an announcement to the Hiking Association Dinara.
In Knin, there is another Hiking Association called Troglav, which initiated a hiking school.
There are seven rivers and streams ideal for canoeing, which could also result in a fairytale. The canoeing services are provided by the Ecological Association Krka and Association Grabarije.
