Zrmanja: 5-Hour Canoe or Kayak Trip in Kaštel Žegarski

1. Zrmanja: 5-Hour Canoe or Kayak Trip in Kaštel Žegarski

Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, a spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner canoeists but their scenery makes them also very exciting. You will see many fish and birds and explore typical karst phenomenon – living travertine waterfalls. The trip begins in Kastel Zegarski, only one hour drive from Zadar. You will quickly learn how to handle sit-on-top kayaks as you slowly enter the canyon. After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids you will – if time and weather permit – visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim under them. More waterfalls and rapids wait for you as you continue down Zrmanja towards Muskovci where the trip ends. At the end of the trip optionally you can enjoy refreshments at a nearby restaurant or take a picnic on your own.

2. Obrovac: Rafting or Kayaking on the Zrmanja River

Meet your guide at Mićanovi dvori. The 5-hour activity begins with instruction on how to use your equipment before heading out on a 14.5-kilometer kayaking experience. Depending on pace and physical fitness, the trip can last from 2.5-4 hours. The goal is for everyone to enjoy time in the water to the best of their ability! In the summer, when the water level is low, you’ll head down the river by kayak. The rest of the year, when the water is high, you’ll make your way down the river by raft. Kayaks can seat 2 people and a raft can seat from 6-10 people, including the skipper. You’ll be in a group of 30 people (15 kayaks), with 2 skippers to guide you.

3. Zadar: River Zrmanja Guided Kayak Safari & Waterfalls

The begging of the trip (clothes changing, instructions, boarding and start of the paddling down the river) is at village Kaštel Žegarski . The part of the route from the village to the mouth of Krupa in Zrmanja and Visoki buk (10 meters high waterfall, the highest on Zrmanja) is hour and a half long, and the waterfall will be bypassed by 5 minutes long walk. Going down the river lasts for approximately 4 hours of which one hour is spent on occasional breaks and swimming. Paddling isn’t hard or dangerous, during the summer; the water is clear and refreshing – perfect adventure for beginners. The trip ends in a village called Muškovci, with some free time for swimming before departure. If you have arrived with your own car, we will drive you to the start point, where you had left your car.

We booked this at short notice and I must honestly say it was a lot of fun for the four of us. Would recommend to everyone. Guides were very nice, the reception and everything around it was just great. Everything fits together. And the water of Zrmanja is just amazing. I've never seen anything so beautiful. Crystal clear, beautiful and at the end of the tour is a bathing spot that you would never want to leave again. fantastic. Thanks again to the team.

It is the 3rd time, spread over 10 years, that we are on the trip and we are still excited. The beautiful nature, with the fantastic cool mountain water, in which there is plenty of opportunity to bathe, is a fantastic experience. The trip is highly recommended.

Great day out on the river. The river is busy with other operators but all was timed well to keep groups apart so each group could enjoy the river and scenery peacefully.

Pure fun - for young and old! Kayaking in beautiful nature with enough time for swimming breaks. Route absolutely suitable for children and beginners

Nice and competent guides! Beautiful river and overall a great day! Highly recommended!
