The island of Rab is located between the islands of Krk and Pag, and it offers a magnificent view of Velebit. The surface of the island of Rab is 90.8 square kilometers, and its highest peak is 408 meters above sea level. The rugged ridge of Kanat, over 10 kilometers long, spreads along the northeastern coast of the island as a key feature of the island. Ridge slopes facing the interior of the island are mild, and the slopes facing the channel of Velebitski kanal are bare and steep, partly vertical. When observed from the mainland, this rocky barrier makes one think that Rab is a stony desert; however, there are fertile green fields on the other side of the island. The highest part of the ridge is a wide karst plateau called Kamenjak, crisscrossed by numerous dry stone walls.

The Via Dinarica trail reaches the island of Rab by boat from Valbiska on the island of Krk.

From the tourist camping site in Lopar, hiking trail markings lead uphill towards Mundanijsko polje. Trails on the island were built by the renowned forestry engineer Ante Premužić, having in mind their major tourist value. The trail proceeds along Mundanijsko polje to the center of Mundanije, and the markings then take hikers further towards the city of Rab. The markings end in the park of the hotel Istra in Rab. The Via Dinarica trail proceeds to Lun (Tovarnele) on the island of Pag by ferry from the port of Rab.
