Full description
The begging of the trip (clothes changing, instructions, boarding and start of the paddling down the river) is at village Kaštel Žegarski . 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. The trip ends in a village called Muškovci, with 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.

    Great day out! Very easy instructions to find the start point, there are a couple of rafting companies all in the same area but we were told to follow the green sign with the indian in a boat. Immedietly met by a member of the team who checked us in and told us what to do next. We were provided with wetsuits and the team gave guidance on what to take in the waterproof bucket, all other belongings were left in the car. Definitely take yourself a sandwich or snack as there is a half way point where you stop to eat. At the end fruit and drinks are provided which is lovely. One member of each party travels back to the start in a minibus to get the car and then come back to get you, this takes approx 40minutes so just be prepared for waiting around. Good phone signal in the area. There are changing rooms and toilets at both the start and end.

    Leuk, het kayakken is erg leuk op de rivier en ook niet moeilijk voor beginners. Wij hadden dit nog niet eerder gedaan. De meeste watervallen die je af gaat zijn niet hoog, dus dat is goed en leuk om te doen. Wel moet je waterschoenen meenemen, dat stond niet in de tekst. Je benen en voeten worden namelijk wel echt nat in de kayak. Wij hebben genoten, de trip duurt best wel lang, had een uurtje korter gemogen. Tussendoor is er een kleine pauze waarin je wat kan eten of zwemmen. Aan het eind waren we wel echt vermoeid. De rivier is super mooi en helder.

    Super excursion well supervised and accessible to all levels. Be careful, however, you need a minimum of physical conditions to finish the 4 hours of rowing that are felt at the end. The places are very beautiful and a short break leaves enough to swim and eat for a while. A waterproof tank is provided to keep a few things dry with you. On arrival you can change and dry off and eat some fruit and drinks offered. A first van leaves with the car drivers to pick up the cars and come back to pick up his companions (40min round trip). Nice and cool team.
