Zrmanja Canoe Safari

Paddling Is sooo much Fun when you are Kayaking Zrmanja River

Start your Kayaking Zrmanja River trip in the village of  Kastel Zegarski. Where you will find intact nature, clear waters and a bounty of flora and fauna. Therefore it makes River Zrmanja one of the most beautiful Croatian and European rivers. So, kayaking Zrmanja River, down its rapids and falls will be both a fun and memorable experience. The kayaking Zrmanja River trip is so safe even children as old as 6 can participate. But, even if you are experienced kayaker, you will enjoy the unique scenery of this remote area. Also, towards the end of the trip there is a 3 m (10 ft) cliff, perfect for jumping into the river. Furthermore, to make this trip even more magnificent we added another hidden gem – the Krupa River.

Rapids and Waterfalls for All Experience Levels

Whether it is your first time holding a paddle or you are experienced in kayaking, you will equally enjoy going down the Zrmanja and Krupa. As mentioned above, the Kayaking Zrmanja River trip begins in the little village of  Kastel Zegarski. Which is situated 1 h drive from Zadar, 1h 20 minutes drive from Sibenik, and 2 h drive from Split. On the first part of our trip the Zrmanja River is calmer, so you will have time to practice your steering and paddling skills. The second part of this trip is set on the Krupa River where you enjoy swimming and (self-brought) lunch break. Kayaking ends in the village of Muskovci and we transfer you back to the starting point where our trip ends.

      Great activity, for all ages! We went kayaking on the Zrmanja river. We had no experience whatsoever, but had a blast! All in all, it was a well organized (and funny) trip, recommended for everyone.

      Great day on the river Zrmanja. Our kids loved it, especially the 3m jump on the last waterfall. Well organized, good materials.
