CANOE SAFARI/RAFTING ON RIVER ZRMANJA
     
Conditions: pdf
    Zrmanja starts its 69 kilometers long journey in the southern part of mountain Plješevica. On its way to Novigrad's sea, in which it floats into, it goes through arable narrow valleys and magnificent 200 meters deep canyon. It is typical karstic river – it has numerous waterfalls, cascades and rapids, which make it perfect for white water sports. 

    Rafting lovers have named it beauty and the beast, because when the water level is high, it offers one of the best rafting experiences in this part of Europe. On the other side, Zrmanja is, with its tributary Krupa, one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. During the summer time, it's quiet, peaceful and it carries you lightly through breathtaking landscapes.

    Our trip begins in village Kaštel Žegarski where we will give you required equipment and have a short safety talk. Soon after, we will be heading down the river. The trip ends in a village called Muškovci, where we’ll have a lunch and some free time for swimming before departure. If you have arrived with your own car, we will drive you to the start point, where you had left your car.

    No previous experience is required and children can participate (accompanied with their parents).


    The begging of the trip (clothes changing, instructions, boarding and start of the paddling down the river) is at village Kaštel Žegarski at 10 am. The part of the route from the village to the mouth of Krupa in Zrmanja and Visoki buk (10 meters high waterfall, the highest on Zrmanja) is hour and a half long, and the waterfall will be bypassed by 5 minutes long walk. Going down the river lasts for approximately 4 hours of which one hour is spent on occasional breaks and swimming. Paddling isn't hard or dangerous, during the summer; the water is clear and refreshing - perfect adventure for beginners.

    On Krupa and Zrmanja, different kind of boats can be used, for bigger comfort and safety. Two persons kayaks are stabile and easy to manage, and we use them during the summer, when water level is low (category I – II*). During the high water levels (autumn, spring), we use raft boats (for 8 to 10 people).

    Each kayak is equipped with waterproof bag (for dry clothes, food, camera etc.). You will get a helmet and a PFD, which are required. Depending of a weather conditions, we will provide additional equipment for lower temperatures – neoprene suits.
