Rafting Zrmanja River

White Water Rafting In Croatia

Rafting Zrmanja River and paddaling up to Krupa River is a perfect mixture of fascinating scenery and adventure. To start, these two rivers are among the most beautiful rivers in Croatia and Europe. Hidden in the remote area in the Zadar hinterland, rafting Zrmanja River will amaze you with its clean water and intact nature.

The rafting Zrmanja River trip begins in the village of Kastel Zegarski, situated 1 h drive from Zadar, 1h 20 minutes drive from Sibenik, 2 h drive from Split, and 1 h 45 minutes from the Plitvice Lakes Area.

      A wonderful day
      We had hoped to book white-water rafting but as the water level wasn't quite right we opted for a day of kayaking on the river Zrmanja.
      The guides were lovely and knowledgeable and managed the group really well. The instruction was very good. The scenery was heavenly and there was a good mix of leisurely paddling and more challenging rapids and drops. Suitable for all ages.
      We stopped by a lovely waterfall for a picnic (although we hadn't been able to get to a shop so we didn't have anything - but we didn't mind).
      The kayaking ended up at a bar where we waited while our nominated driver was taken back to the start point to pick up our car. The locals were so lovely we ended up staying and chatting to them for quite a while.
      A fantastic day out on the river.
