Discover 2 most beautiful rivers in Croatia - Mreznica & Zrmanja. Trip from Zagreb or Zadar.

This is a more than just a 2 day kayaking trip with camping. It is an adventure where you will get to be active in the nature, kayak on two most beautiful rivers in Croatia, camp by the river (probably under the sky full of stars), breathe some fresh air, eat fresh local food and see how the local people live.

The rivers Mreznica and Zrmanja are real beauties of the Croatian karst with crystal clear water and many waterfalls. Apart from being amazing kayaking destinations adapted even for complete beginners, they are a great nature stop on the way from Zagreb to the coast. That's why I included 3 different options:

-start & end in Zagreb
-start in Zagreb, end in Zadar
-start in Zadar, end in Zagreb



I'll pick you up in your Zagreb hotel and we'll start our adventure with the upper section of the Mreznica River. We travel through a narrow and deep gorge with spectacular cascades up to 8 m/26 ft high. You can have fun cliff jumping, taking crazy photos, climbing waterfalls and swimming under them. It will take us 3 hours, break included, to complete our descent.

After the kayaking we will drive south to the campsite by the river Zrmanja where we will put up our tents and enjoy a meal on a nearby family farm.

Next day after breakfast we drive to the startpoint and head down the beautiful Zrmanja River. The first part of the river is calmer and less demanding, whilst the second part after the amazing big fall (that we will not kayak down but walk around) is fun with lots of rapids & action. It will take us some 4-5 hours to finish our adventure by the bridge in Muskovci where you can have a drink and something to eat in a local restaurant by the river.

Drive back to Zagreb.
