Zrmanja: Full-Day Canoe or Kayak Trip in Kaštel Žegarski
- Duration: 1 day
Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner canoeists but their scenery makes them also very exciting. You will see many fish and birds and explore typical karst phenomenon – living travertine waterfalls. The trip begins in Kastel Zegarski, only one hour drive from Zadar. You will quickly learn how to handle sit-on-top kayaks as you slowly enter the canyon. After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids you will – if time and weather permit – visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim under them. More waterfalls and rapids wait for you as you continue down Zrmanja towards Muskovci where the trip ends. At the end of the trip optionally you can enjoy refreshments at a nearby restaurant or take a picnic on your own. Itinerary: 10:00 - Arrival to dest...
Well organized, probably better during the beginning of summer. We missed a bit of water in September…
Book your entrance ticket for Zadar's Museum of Illusions and get access to dozens of exhibits including the Vortex Tunnel, the first of such in this part of Europe.

The experience was amazing! Perfect organisation, kindness, availability. We arrived late due to a scooter problem, they were waiting for us. Everything was explained in details. Landscape is awfully wild and peaceful. The two guys helps people in the difficult point of the ride. There are stops to rest and in the end you can change wet cloths in a locker rooms. A transfer brings you back. In the way back we had (again) a problem with the scooter and we will never stop thanking the guy of the organisation. They were so kind to help us. Unfortunately we don’t remember names. Thank you so much!
Well organized activity for all those people are hungry for some special adventure. Team was really professional, so we were in good, reliable hands. All we had to focus on was the incredible landscape and the canyon of course. It is a light/easy rafting tour for beginners, so its perfect for families with childrens or couples with less experience in paddling.
Really nice tour, clear blue water en professional guides. My fiancé lost his glasses in the water and the instructor even went back the next day to look for the glasses with a divingmask and he found it!! Amazing.
It was awesome. Both guys we're super nice and funny. We had a great time with them and also learned something about the environment. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Although it did rain a few times, it was still awesome.
