Rafting Zrmanja River
The most beautiful river
Rafting Zrmanja River is easy and safe enough for beginners, but the scenery makes it also very exciting. Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe. Perfectly clear warm water, spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. You will see many fish and birds and explore typical karst phenomenon, living travertine waterfalls. The trip begins in Kastel Zegarski, only one hour drive from Zadar. You will quickly learn how to paddle as you slowly enter the canyon.
Rafting Zrmanja River where rapids wait for you
After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids, if time and weather permit, you will visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim close to them. More waterfalls and rapids wait for you as you continue down Zrmanja towards Muskovci village where the trip ends. No previous rafting experience is needed. Even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate on this great rafting Zrmanja River experience. We use professional SOTAR rafting boats for max 8 people, with trained guide in each boat. You will get a life jacket, a paddle and a helmet, plus long neoprene suits and rain jackets in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items. Don’t forget to bring shorts or a bathing suit, T-shirt, spare socks and sandals (or sport shoes), a towel, sun cream and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.
