Experienced river guides and kayakers will show you the necessary skills in form of a kayaking school and take you along the most beautiful rivers in Croatia. You will have a chance to learn more about river kayaking and paddling techniques. With this trip you will get to kayak down some of the top kayaking rivers in Croatia – Mreznica, Korana and Zrmanja.
The course includes flat and whitewater sections of these three rivers. We will start our trip in Zvecaj by the Mreznica River, whose flat and warm waters are ideal for beginners’ lessons. The trip slowly progresses from class I river sections through classes II and III as you master paddling techniques, steering and maybe even learn how to eskimo roll! Our second base for the holiday will be Korana Village in Plitvice Lakes National Park.
This kayak holiday is suitable for kayak enthusiasts with little or no experience.
