Packrafting Croatia Adventure trip is tailored for active and curious nature lovers. Those who value the dose of autonomy you get with a packraft while in a safe group setting. Explore the gems of the Plitvice lakes area and the Velebit nature park in this exciting 5-day adventure! As every participant paddles in their own boat, our minimum age requirement is 12 years. Nevertheless – this trip is suitable for beginners, families with teenagers, and smaller groups. Packrafting is super fun. Try it! It gives you the opportunity to handle the river by paddling on your own – under the watch of our skilled guides.
Break from your everyday life
The Packrafting Croatia Adventure trip is specially designed for up to 10 people. Being small, the packrafts are able to go where other vessels cannot, which gives you more freedom to explore the narrow river canyons of Mrežnica and Zrmanja river. Mrežnica and Zrmanja are perfectly clear rivers set in spectacular canyons with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner packrafters. Our daily program on this Packrafting Croatia Adventure is a combination of packrafting, swimming, and looking for hidden gems along the way. It is perfect for experienced kayakers and rafters, but also for beginners, trying out on the river for the first time. Therefore a great opportunity to explore unexplored parts of Croatia while on our Packrafting Croatia Adventure. Join this new and exciting adventure!
