Full description
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 but their scenery makes them also very exciting. 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 handle sit-on-top kayaks as you slowly enter the canyon. After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids you will – if time and weather permit – visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim under them. More waterfalls and rapids wait for you as you continue down Zrmanja towards Muskovci where the trip ends. At the end of the trip optionally you can enjoy refreshments at a nearby restaurant or take a picnic on your own.

The whole experience felt well organised and we enjoyed it very much. The river was mild mostly due the this year's drought, but we didn’t mind, there were some exciting parts as well. Though only one adult could go down a waterfall (a child was allowed with an adult). Anyways, I’m really glad we went, it wasn’t an adventure, don’t know if that’s just now, but in Montenegro there was more adrenaline for sure. However, it was incredibly soothing. A few things that could have been better- we had one incredibly smelly vest, it sounds picky, but they could be washed sometimes (nothing wrong with mine though) and it was a bit uncomfortable waiting for 45 minutes in a place full of smoking people for the drivers as they only took them to the starting point (and the way there was more adrenaline than the kayaking as the driver drove like mad). We don’t regret going at all and enjoyed it, though if it’s a long journey for you and you don’t like this sort of thing, I probably wouldn’t bother.

Well organized activity for all those people are hungry for some special adventure. Team was really professional, so we were in good, reliable hands. All we had to focus on was the incredible landscape and the canyon of course. It is a light/easy rafting tour for beginners, so its perfect for families with childrens or couples with less experience in paddling.

Great canoe trip! A varied route with both calm and faster and more demanding sections + a nice surprise on the route as a break from rowing :) Organization of the entire event at a great level. From the moment we parked the car, we were assigned to a group and the most important information was provided to us. Efficient and fast. You can confidently take all the most necessary things with you, because everyone receives waterproof containers that travel with us. Additionally, dry items, such as towels or clothes, can be left at the start in a special box waiting at the end of the trip. At the end, all drivers are picked up in a minibus and returned to the parking lot, from which you have to come back for accompanying persons. I don't find it a problem as the distance to travel is short and waiting people have a restaurant and a nice neighborhood at their disposal. When it comes to instructors, there is nothing to write home about - fantastic!
