Pricing Considerations

Transportation costs

Given the fact that the LikaCamp site isnt very close to civilization (yay!), transportation by car/taxi/horse is the most convenient manner to get anyone/anything there or back out again. Walking from the nearest bus/train location is technically feasible but involves about 12-14km through semi-rough terrain (dont expect to take a wheeled suitcase). Using a bike is possible too but would require some logistics first as there are no bikes on the premises normally.

Destination Description Reason Distance Duration Cost
Gracac Closest town Supermarket,tools,supplies,train,bus 14km (28KM) 24min (48min) Eur2.66 (Eur5.32)
Gospic Large town Rare goods,train,bus 63km (126km) 1h4min (2h8min) Eur11.97 (Eur23.94)
