Meeting Point


GPS Coordinates: 44*10*54,8 N 15*32*48,9 E


The start of the excursion is in Novigrad, a small fishing town, located a half hour drive from Zadar. The group will meet at 9:30 am in front of the cafe “Flash”, where we will board the ship.

Boat ride will take us across Novigrad’s sea to the delta of Zrmanja. Soon after entering the river you will find yourself surrounded with magnificent 200 meters deep canyon. 12 kilometers long rout through canyon will take us to the town Obrovac and few kilometers later to our final destination – last waterfall on Zrmanja – Jankovića buk where we will have a short brake for swimming. On our way back you can take a closer look on limestone cliffs, old ruins called “Pržunac” and if you’re lucky enough griffon vultures.

One of the best experiences we made during our roundtrip through Croatia. I booked the tour online and within a couple of minutes we got a confirmation. The tour starts in Novigrad. The skipper Zoran was very friendly and sympathic. We were offered some local biscuits for free. Also there was a broad variety of fresh fruits. Very beautiful was the stop for bathing at the waterfall. The tour was really great and I highly recommend to do it with that team. The fee of 250 kuna per person has to be paid in cash.

We had a great time on the river Zrmanja. Nature is absolutely breAn absolut great expirience. One of the greatest tour I ever made! Perfect boat with comfortable seats, fresh fruits and mineral water included. Very friendly skipper. The boat trip smooth and calm, perfect conditions, great views in the canyon of Zrmanje river. Perfect stay at the waterfall with jumping from the edge. Also an highlight the rock jumping at the beginning of the canyon. Lots of fun! Top price per person, I could really recommend this trip! athtaking and the staff well organized, helpful and friendly. Lunch was so tasty and huge. We highly recommend taking this trip.

We went on the riverboat tour which lasted over 6 hours and only cost 250 kuna which works out at about £30 which is an absolute bargin. The tour took us along the Zrmanja gorge, through Obrovac and finished at the beautiful falls where we stopped for a dive and a swim. You then go back through the gorge and stop at Obrovac (we went for a beer at the local cafe) we continued to the end of the gorge where we stopped for another swim. The tour ends by going all around Novigrad Bay. The skipper/guide was fantastic and we were supplied with water, fruit, snacks and a lovely honey schnapps. Would highly recommend this tour it was outstanding.

Die Bootstour auf der Zrmanja kann man nur empfehlen. Gemütlich mit dem Kanu die Landschaft genießen. Es gibt ein paar kleine Stromschnellen, welche Abwechslung in die Bootsfahrt bringen. Die Betreiber sind freundlich und sehr bemüht. Am Ende der Tour gibt es noch ein gemeinsames Essen im Lokal vor Ort! Preis/Leistung passt!

Captain Zoran spricht deutsch - dadurch ist es möglich, nicht nur etwas über den Canyon zu erfahren ( Stichwort: Pueblo Vinetu ). Auch über die kroatische/ jugoslawische Geschichte gibt’s viel zu hören, wenn man danach fragt! Sehr unterhaltsame, kurzweilige Fahrt mit atemberaubender „Winnetou“-Kulisse und am Ende der Wasserfall Jankovica Buk, incl. Badespaß. On Top gab‘s noch eine Durchfahrt unter der Maslenica- und ihrer Nachbar-Brücke. Super Trip! Sehr zu empfehlen!!

Als Winnetou-Fan ist dieser Ausflug ein absolutes Muss. Man fährt über das Posedarje-Meer hinüber in die Zrmanja-Schlucht. Zum Fotografieren bieten sich wunderschöne Motive. An Obrovac vorbei macht man einen Badestop an einem kleinen Wehr und dan geht es zurück. Das Boot ist geräumig und bequem zu Sitzen. Der Kapitän ist sehr nett und lustig. Für Getränke (auch kleines Schnäpschen) ist gesorgt.
