Kayaking Mreznica Canyon

Spectacular light effects

Kayaking Mreznica Canyon takes us through a gorge so narrow and deep that the sun enters it for only a few hours each day, around noon, creating spectacular light effects. To reach the upper canyon of Mreznica between Primislje and Trzic, the most beautiful part of the river right in the wilderness, you need a little more effort. We will pass cliffs of carved white rocks, lush vegetation and cascading waterfalls, strong freshwater springs and pools of water which are great for swimming in summer. The second highest waterfall on the Mreznica (8m) is a magical place ideal for swimming and a picnic.

Through a gorge with a paddle

No previous experience is needed. Therefore, even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate in the activity kayaking Mreznica. 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. Don’t forget to bring shorts or a bathing suit, T-shirt, water shoes, a towel, spare clothes, sun cream, picnic and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.

    Great fun kayaking in the Mrežnica Canyon!
    I had read many great reviews for Raftrek and I was not disappointed by our experience. Before I booked I had got in touch with the Raftrek team to ask their advice about which of their kayaking trips would best suit our family. I received useful advice promptly and the booking process was easy. When I looked on their website there was a little confusion about where we should meet the guides, again this was quickly cleared up by the Raftrek team and they confirmed that they were looking to simplify the location information.

    This really was one of the highlights of our trip to Croatia. When we arrived at the meet location there were a lot of us there, the guides split us into two groups; one with younger families and the other group that we went with were mostly in their twenties, which was great for our teenage kids. The guides were knowledgable and I felt completely safe in their company. They also liked to have a joke with everyone which really helped to break the ice...

    Beautiful interlude on the river
    Raftrek (an REI subcontractor) made this kayaking/swimming trip on a river near Plitvice Lakes National Park. All equipment, including wet suits, helmets, and dry bags , was provided. We only had to wear our swimsuits and bring towels and clothes to change into (also snacks and water). Our guide, Billy, was delightful and made us feel safe. The river was quiet and beautiful--we were lucky to have blue skies and a perfect day. He also provided us with some historical information on the Homeland War, and pointed out mine sites on the drive back to the start point. It was a lovely way to spend a day away from the crowds at the National Park.

    It felt like kayaking in a jungle on a crystal clear water
    I've never been kayaking before and this was the perfect combo of easy riding with beautiful views, some adrenalin waterfalls and places where we could jump off cliffs and swim. Definitely wanna do it again.

    Our experience was amazing. Even though it wasn't tourists season they arranged tours for us. We did the trekking and kayaking tours and both were better than expected. The tour guides were professional and friendly at the same time. They help us try some of their local food and we talk about everything Croatia.
