If your journey from Split continues north, join us on a half-day canoe escape on magnificent Zrmanja river. Wild West-like canyon of this river is among most beautiful in Croatia. For thousands of years this river has been making it’s way towards sea with a little help of tributary river Krupa. On it’s way, it made one of the most impressive canyons decorated with numerous cascades and waterfalls, travertine tresholds, infinite sandbanks and gravel deposits.
This scenary will make your canoe safari experience unforgettable even if you don’t have previous canoeing or kayaking experience. Upon arrival to the meeting point you will be given equipment and safety briefing and during kayaking tour we will visit the place where rivers Zrmanja and Krupa meet to stop for a swim and a picnic (not included in price).
Join us today and make the best of your visit to this part of Croatia!
