Very nice activity, we had decided not to rent a car during our stay in Zadar. Thanks to this activity and its organization, we were able to go canoeing without worries because a person drove us to the river looking for us just 3min from our apartment. This activity is as fun as it is easy on the eyes. If I can recommend one activity to do in Zadar, it's this one. Very good atmosphere within the group and with the guides. The landscapes are breathtaking, the activity is fun and varied, we had time to picnic and take pictures. At the end, we were treated to a snack with fruits, drinks and other small things to nibble. I recommend 100%.

This was a really great trip and I would highly recommend! The transportation was well organized and they picked us up right by our accommodation, and the drivers and guides were all super friendly and helpful. The kayaking tour itself was amazing, it went along the most beautiful river and was so much fun! All equipment was provided, just make sure to bring enough water as you are out in the sun all day. But if you are looking for a fun kayaking trip close to Zadar with amazing scenery, this is the one I can recommend.

Die Kajaktour war wirklich sehr witzig. Einfache Strecke und ein paar Stromschnellen für die Action. Insgesamt ein sehr gelungener Ausflug. Der Transport hat sehr gut geklappt. Es wäre nur gut zu wissen gewesen, dass man für zwischendurch einen Snack und was zu trinken mitnehmen sollte. Feste Schuhe bzw. Badeschuhe sind auf jeden Fall ratsam.
