Full description

Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, a 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.

What a great activity it was, great fun and exercise in those few hours surrounded with wonderful nature. Thanks to Grga and Martina everything went smooth, no one was left behind and we made it to the finish with good memories and some new friends. The starting point is very easy to find, everything is well organised and, after a brief training, you are on the water. There is a bar at the finish with food and drinks or you can cross the bridge and stay at the beach to swimm in Zrmanja river. It's great for beginners and kids, nothing dangerous or demanding, if you come alone that's also great because you will get a partner and possible a new friend in kayak.

We booked this at short notice and I must honestly say it was a lot of fun for the four of us. Would recommend to everyone. Guides were very nice, the reception and everything around it was just great. Everything fits together. And the water of Zrmanja is just amazing. I've never seen anything so beautiful. Crystal clear, beautiful and at the end of the tour is a bathing spot that you would never want to leave again. fantastic. Thanks again to the team.

This is a well organised trip, the guides were friendly and gave clear instructions from the moment we arrived and throughout the day The Zrmanja is a beautiful river to navigate, with stunning gorges. However, the trip is not for those seeking an adrenaline rush. A Waterproof barrel is provided, so it was easy to take our packed lunch, drinks and essentials, and our dry clothes were waiting for us at the end of trip Drivers are then transferred back to the start to collect cars
