Zrmanja Canoe Safari



Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, 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.


No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket , a helmet and a paddle, plus long neoprene suit and a rain jacket in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items (camera drinks, etc.). Don’t forget to bring shorts or a bathing suit, a T-shirt, water shoes, a towel, sun cream and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.


Min 2 – max 30 people per group; larger groups are on request.

We took a kayak safari trip at the beginning of August 2012. It was nothing but pure fun, My wife and I took our 3 boys aged 8, 11 and 13 on the kayak safari which reached areas of the rivers that cannot be accessed by any other means. Our instructor guides were brilliant and made the whole trip so much more fun. We saw all manner of wildlife and swam in secluded lakes. I would recommend this trip as a must. We had so much fun and laughed all day!!!! 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating

We went kayaking on the Zrmanja River on April 13, 2012, 2 adults and a 17 year old. We went in 2 person kayaks. Our guide KiKi was terrific. The scenery and waterfalls were amazing. The 14 kilometer ride was a combination of calm and adventurous waters. Booking with Branka through email was easy and effective since we live outside of Croatia. We would highly recommend this company and this rafting/kayaking trip on the Zrmanja River for anyone. 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating

I spent an unforgettable day on the river with Raftrek team. Absolutely and forever in love with the Zrmanja river. So many beautiful places on the planet, but this is special. This river is amazing, it has a unique character, incredible energy! The guys from Raftrek, thank you for adventure and memories! I'll be back one day... jump from the big waterfall... 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating

We went kayaking with these guys and we had a blast! They have knowledgeable and experienced guides that speak perfect English. On our excursion we first kayaked into the scenic canyon. Later, we stopped to swim and eat our lunch near a waterfall. Then the Kayaking got more fun with small easy rapids that slowly escalated to harder rapids. You go around a few large waterfalls, but most of the trip is on water. Near the end there's a good size waterfall that CAN go down If you want. I went down it and enjoyed it, much like the rest of our excursion. 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating

Prachtige natuur, zo nu en dan een beetje spannend (zeker voor kinderen) maar nooit gevaarlijk. Deskundige en hulpvaardige begeleiding en halverwege een fraaie zwemstop onder de waterval.Ook geschikt voor beginners en kleine kinderen maar vooral leuk met pubers die zelf al lekker kunnen peddelen. Neem wel eten en drinken mee want je bent tussen 10 en 16 op pad. Je krijgt een waterdichte container waar je eten in kan doen. Je droge kleren worden met de auto naar het eindpunt gebracht. 4-star rating 4-star rating 4-star rating 4-star rating
