Its wonderful waterfalls stretching from the western foot of the Dinaric Range into the Adriatic sea near Sibenik. The waterfalls are a karstic phenomenon. Over millennia river water has created a canyon up to 200 m deep through limestone hills, bringing calcium carbonate with it. The material is called tufa. It is formed by billions of plants growing on top of one another. As a result, these growths create barriers in the river that produce spectacular waterfalls.

Swimming underneath waterfalls

Cycling to visit Krka National Park will take you to the most visited and the most popular part of the national park, the Skradinski Buk waterfall. It is a 44-meter high waterfall and the mere sight of it is quite impressive. Swimming underneath it will be an experience you will never forget. There is an educational trail around the waterfall where you can visit the old village of Skradinski Buk. Basic cycling experience is needed. Children from 12 years of age and older, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use professional Kona bicycles, and each group gets a trained guide.
