Kayaking Mreznica Canyon

River Kayaking Down the Beautiful Mreznica River

Join our Kayaking Mreznica day trip to enjoy the amazing scenery. Have fun discovering the spectacular canyon from a kayak. If you are staying anywhere in the Plitvice area, this kayaking trip is a must!

Six stunning travertine waterfalls, crystal clear waters, magnificent canyon, beautiful intact nature, exhilarating cliff jumping, swimming, and paddling. Therefore all packed in the four-hour kayaking trip.

The great thing about the kayaking Mreznica trip is that you don’t need any previous kayaking experience. It is so safe, even the 6-year-olds can join. Still, this kayaking Mreznica trip is exciting enough even for the more adventurous ones. For example, you can jump off a 9 m (29 ft) high cliff.

Mreznica Canyon, A Hidden Gem 

Although the Mreznica River is close to sometimes crowded Plitvice Lakes, they feel light-years apart. Even though the scenery is equally stunning and the waters are equally emerald. However, not even all Croatians know about this hidden gem in the heartland of Croatia.

So, if you are staying anywhere in the Plitvice area, this kayaking trip is a must. Another thing: you can’t swim in Plitvice Lakes National Park. But you can swim in the clear waters of the Mreznica River. Also, this makes the kayaking Mreznica trip a perfect option on hot days.

    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.
