Zrmanja River rafting trip is an expedition down the magnificent Wild West-like canyons of the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers. Both rivers are a part of Velebit Nature Park. Perfectly clear and green waters, rapids and waterfalls, hidden swimming pools and steep canyons will steal your heart. This day on the Zrmanja River will surely be an unforgettable experience. It may well turn out to be the best day of your Croatian holiday!
No previous rafting experience is needed if you can swim. Even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate in this trip. We use raft boats during high water season (April to May, September to November). In summer the water level is lower (usually before May and after September, but the water level can vary a lot due to rainfall in spring and in autumn), which is when the Zrmanja may turns into a spectacular river for kayaking.
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, we will stop at the point where the Zrmanja and Krupa meet. This is a magical place for a swim and a picnic. The trip ends by the bridge in Muskovci. Here you can change and we’ll drive you back to the start point where you left your cars.
