Do you like kayaking in smaller groups? Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Zrmanja River and its canyon and share this unique experience with family and friends. This emerald green river, one of the most beautiful ones in Croatia, will leave you breathless, while kayaking in a stable and easy-to-use packraft boat will make you feel safe and free.

ITINERARY:

You meet your guides in Kaštel Žegarski. After changing clothes and receiving instructions from the guides, your adventure may start. The route goes down the Zrmanja River towards the estuary of the Krupa River, where you leave the packrafts and hike to the waterfalls of the Krupa River where you can refresh and take a swim. After this break, you head back to the packrafts and continue rowing through the scenic landscape of Zrmanja to Muškovci, with one more swimming break planned. The tour is about 4 hours long. At the end of your route, a shuttle will be waiting for you to take you back to the starting point. The rowing is not exhausting nor dangerous, and during the summer the river is clear and warm. This activity is perfect for beginners as well as for experienced river runners.
