Zrmanja Canoe Safari

The right choice for you

If you like being outdoors and active, whether it is your first time holding a paddle or you are a canoeist with certain experience, Kayaking Zrmanja River is the right choice for you. Upon your arrival, the guides will help you with the preparation. You will get a waterproof barrel for your picnic, towels, water, sun cream, camera or any other personal item. Once you are ready, we will give you a life jacket, a helmet, a paddle (a neoprene suit and a rain jacket in case of colder weather) and in no time we will turn you into a professional-looking canoeist. Your trip leader will give you safety instructions and teach you how to steer the boat and you are off!

Paddle through rapids

On the first part of the Kayaking Zrmanja River trip, which is calmer, you will get to practice your steering and paddling skills and just by the time you get hungry, we will take you to the beautiful Krupa River for a self-brought picnic and swimming break. After you’ll paddle through rapids, go down waterfalls, swim and witness the beauty of nature at its fullest. Kayaking Zrmanja River trip ends in Muskovci village and once you change into dry clothes, we transfer you back. No previous canoeing experience is needed. Even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top canoes which are easy and safe to navigate. Don’t forget to bring a swimsuit, shorts, a T-shirt, water shoes, dry clothes to change into later and prepare your picnic and water because it is not possible to buy them at the starting point.

    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.

    Zirmanja River Rafting Excellent customer service, very well organized, and a very enjoyable time on the water. Our guides "Dave" and Mate were very personable and fun to talk to and did an incredible job ensuring everyone on the trip (from many different languages) had fun. Thank
