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. Itinerary: 10:00 AM - Arrival to destination – Kastel Zegarski village 10:30 AM - Preparing for the trip and safety instructions provided by the trip leader 11:00 AM - Trip starts 12:30 PM - Continuing down the river Zrmanja 3:00 PM - Finish at Muskovci village 3:30 PM - Optional refreshments

If this is your first kayaking experience this will be perfect! The hosts were great and friendly. Just one small note - it felt a tiny bit rushed. Would have been nice to have a slightly longer break, then we could have had time to swim in the river. Apart from that, 5 ⭐️

Yesterday we were with 4 people (all in our mid-20s) as absolute beginners on the kayak tour. It was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. The crystal clear water, the waterfalls and the breathtaking scenery around the river were particularly impressive. - the guides were great and had everything under control - the tour was set up professionally and safely - the equipment and boats were in top condition In short, we had a lot of fun and were really exhausted after the 5-hour tour. It would be desirable if after the tour all participants are returned to the private cars and not just the drivers of the respective private cars. Thanks for the great day!

Very fun day. A great level for beginners and our children (aged 7 and 10) loved the rapids. If you are going with children be prepared for the fact it is hard work as the children didn’t help much! Most boats have 2 adults, so given I had just me and a 7 year old dead weight I was tired by the end! Worth it though!
