Sea kayaking down Zrmanja river to the Adriatic sea

Exploring The Canyon Of The Zrmanja River

The Zrmanja River in Croatia is a hidden gem for kayaking enthusiasts. We’ll start our day meeting up in Obrovac and departing downstream. The lower part is perfect for a sea kayaking trip through the mouth of the river. The crystal clear water and stunning scenery make for an unforgettable experience. As you paddle down the river, you’ll pass by towering cliffs and lush greenery, with the occasional glimpse of local wildlife. The river’s currents are mild, making it easy for beginners to navigate, but still challenging enough for experienced kayakers.

From The Canyon To The Sea

As you make your way downstream, the river widens and you’ll find yourself in the mouth of the Zrmanja river to the Novigrad sea. The sea kayaking trip can be tailored to your skill level and interests. With a sea kayaking trip down the Zrmanja River, you’ll experience the best of Croatia’s natural beauty and culture, making it a must-do for any outdoor enthusiast. Finish your trip up in a small town where you can enjoy the beach, and have a quick lunch or coffee before heading back to Obrovac, where we met in the morning.
