Packrafting Zrmanja River
What do you mean – packraft?
Have you ever wanted to go kayaking or rafting, but in a smaller group? Well, we have just the trip for you. Explore the emerald green beauty while packrafting Zrmanja River!
Packrafting Zrmanja River is new in our repertoire, though it is already common worldwide. Packraft gives you the opportunity to handle the river by paddling on your own – under the watch of our skilled guides.
After you arrive to the starting point, our guides will help you prepare for this new adventure. After the safety talk, you’ll start rafting down the river. Packrafting Zrmanja River takes off at Kastel Zegarski and takes you into untouched nature and serene sceneries in matter of moments. On the first part of the river, we will practice paddling and steering the boats. After that, real adventure awaits.
