This kayaking trip is an expedition down the magnificent wild-west-like canyons of the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers in Velebit Nature Park. Perfectly clear and green waters, rapids and waterfalls, hidden swimming pools and steep sided canyons will steal your heart and make this excursion an unforgettable experience.
No previous canoeing or kayaking experience is needed if you can swim. Even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate. We use open canoes or sit-on-top kayaks for 2 persons.
Program & Gear List
The trip starts in the little village of Kastel Zegarski in our base by the Zrmanja River. After providing you with the equipment, we will start our expedition downstream. Time and weather permitting, a stop will be made at the spot of confluence of Zrmanja and Krupa, a magical place for a swim and a picnic. The trip ends by the bridge in Muskovci where you will change and we’ll drive you back to the start point where you left your cars. You can also order lunch several days in advance, it will be waiting for you after the rafting – a traditional meal „Peka“ is really worth a taste.
