Private Zrmanja river rafting tour

We will pick you up in front of your hotel at 8 AM and take you to Mićanovi dvori, located above the canyon, built in traditional style, that offers experience of authentic lifestyle of rural Bukovica in the Nature Park Velebit.
Upon arrival the authentic breakfast will be served; prosciutto, basa chees, donuts and home made grappas and liquors, juices and coffee.

The beginning of the rafting/kayak track is at Kaštel Žegarski, where in private changing rooms you can dress in your swimming outfit and neoprene suits, safety helmets and jackets and neoprene water shoes. The skipper will tell you all about Zrmanja, the track and the canyon you are going through traversing 14.5 km long and it takes, around 2.5-3.5h to finish.

Zrmanja river with its crystal clear waters wiggle through a 200m deep canyon, creating on the way many beautiful limestone waterfalls, of which the 11m high "Veliki buk" is the most impressive one. Zrmanja is known for its inaccessible canyon, which can only be experienced by boat or kayak/raft. Kayaking is ideal for everyone up for an active vacation and good fun in nature. The difference between kayaking and rafting is that when rafting there is a skipper in every raft, and when kayaking skippers follow the group according to relay race regime, whereby all checkpoints on track are secured.

Kayaks are made of special, rubber-reinforced materials used primarily for guests' comfort due to long time spent in the canyon. They are much more comfortable to sit in for 3.5 h because of the seat than plastic "sit on top" kayaks which are actually prohibited in narrow mountain chain rivers because they damage the limestone. At the end guests change (private changing rooms) into your dry clothes.
