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.

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!

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.

The experience was amazing! Perfect organisation, kindness, availability. We arrived late due to a scooter problem, they were waiting for us. Everything was explained in details. Landscape is awfully wild and peaceful. The two guys helps people in the difficult point of the ride. There are stops to rest and in the end you can change wet cloths in a locker rooms. A transfer brings you back. In the way back we had (again) a problem with the scooter and we will never stop thanking the guy of the organisation. They were so kind to help us. Unfortunately we don’t remember names. Thank you so much!

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.

It was a very nice tour. The water is very clear, the landscape is fantastic. You move around, paddle, swim, have fun and experience nature - it couldn't be better. The two trainers were very careful: they gave good instructions and guided them safely through the rapids. They told a lot about the river and the gorge.

Fantastic trip, well organized. The guides were great providing us with lots of activities along the way - smaller and bigger waterfalls a trip for everyone, no preparation needed.

It was awesome. Both guys we're super nice and funny. We had a great time with them and also learned something about the environment. Would definitely recommend this tour.
