This is so far the best outdoor activity I have done in my life with an excellent small group and amazing guides Rocko, Boris and Ante (forgive me for spelling their name wrong). They were very engaging and always made sure of the safety of the group. I would probably do these types of activities more and more if I get the chance , especially in this hot summer in July rather than trotting the cities. I registered for basic and in the middle of the tour switched to extreme because you don’t want to loose this lifetime opportunity. It was a scary but one of the best decisions I made. Diving from different heights as high as 9 m and even more along the way was nerve wrecking as well as exhilarating. Amazing beauty of the rocks and River Cetina were breathtaking while you lie on your back and river takes you on adventures. All in all the guides and everyone in the group made the day wholesome and memorable for me. 100 out of 10 I would recommend. Please keep doing what you love to do.

We had so much fun on this adventure. Everything was explained at the beginning at the meeting point. We received the equipment and had enough time to check if everything suits and to ask questions. Our guides, Danijel and Ivan, are super cool guys. Really relaxed, helpful at any time and always by your side. The canyoning was so much fun, a really great adventure which we (my boyfriend, my brother and myself) fully recommend! It just pity that we don’t have photos from this adventure and we were told at the end that we just had to ask for it. Lesson learned ;)

Notre meilleur expérience en étant sur Split ! Activité topissime pour faire le plein de nature. Nous commencions à être un peu oppressé à rester dans la vieille ville de Split, et là cette activité nous a permis de totalement nous déconnecter de l’ambiance de ville ou des sites à touristes (comme Krka que nous avions fait la veille et qui nous avait à moitié déçu) Nos deux guides accompagnant étaient de très bonne compagnie, calmes et patientes - fournissant de très bonnes explications et nous mettant aussi en confiance. Si bien que nous avons décidé en cours de route de prendre l’option extrême afin de faire les descentes en rappel et les grands sauts ! De plus nous étions dans un très bon groupe de 8 personnes, très bonne ambiance. Nous repartons avec un très bon souvenir dans nos têtes mais aussi avec des photos que nos guides ont pris tout au long et nous ont envoyé le soir même ! Nous vous recommandons vivement cette activité qui vaut vraiment le coup !
