Zrmanja River Trip

Spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls

Two day Zrmanja River kayaking trip is designed for flexible, energetic people. Who like to be active and have a spirit of adventure. Therefore a positive attitude. Our daily program is a combination of kayaking, swimming and exploring rivers. It is a perfect program for a short outdoor getaway. Breathtaking beauty merged with activities is something worth experiencing. Indulge yourself for the weekend and feel like a little scout again. Spend the night under the stars. Wake up to the sound of the river and birds.

Two day Zrmanja River kayaking trip

Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner canoeists. Their scenery makes them also very exciting. The trip begins in Kastel Zegarski, only an hour drive from Zadar. After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids you will – if time and weather permit – visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim under them.  Following a night’s rest, you will continue your trip from a small town called Obrovac. Spectacular sights of the cliffs in contrast to the turquoise river color will lead you all the way to the river estuary. You finish up in the Novigrad Sea, so this is a great opportunity to combine river and sea kayaking in one trip!
