Obrovac: Rafting or Kayaking on the Zrmanja River

1. 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.

2. 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.

Good information in advance. Prompt greeting and introduction to the material. The river has little flow at the moment, you have to paddle a lot. The current thresholds are harmless, but a lot of fun. Might have a little more of it. Short break in the half at a beautiful waterfall. At the end there was a ride over a small waterfall. Refreshment is guaranteed there.

One of the best days in Croatia! Fun, fantastic nature, breathtaking views and very well organized activity. We were there with our kids (12 and 9), no problems. The bathing in the river at the waterfall - amazing! Thumbs up! But reserve whole day for the activity - it takes longer than 5 hours and you will be tired afterwards.

It was a great experience for all of us and an impressive backdrop. Always my pleasure.

A beautiful landscape and tour. We felt very well cared for. Thanks . We will be back.

Very good organization. A great adventure for children.
