Amazing ! Very clear explanations, the guides very present to accompany us and keep us safe, even in the most difficult waterfalls. And who know how to laugh 😁 A stop to eat with a beautiful view! Magnificent landscapes, it's really a great activity to do as a couple or as a family. 11km to go (takes +/- 4 hours) but it's not too tiring because you can let yourself go with the current to enjoy the landscape a little. Little extra: I was alone and I had to wait for my boyfriend to pick up the car but they offered me to come with them in the car because there was a place left, so I didn't have to wait alone. Very nice of them! To be done again and recommended! Kayaks are comfortable.

It was a great experience and everything was well organized. The contact also worked great, as there was too much water on the day we had actually booked, it would have been rafting. But the organizer contacted us and we were able to postpone it for a few days so that we could go on a kayak tour instead of a rafting tour. Great 👍 After a short introduction, we went on the water and had an exciting experience. The last waterfall was great 👍 It was great fun and I can only warmly recommend it.

A great time spent! Peter was an excellent and very professional instructor. I highly recommend and if we have the opportunity to return to Croatia, we will surely come back for another kayak trip 👌😁🔥🔥🔥 Noella and Pierre

Everything was better than expected. The guides were all wonderful. The views and scenery o te canyon spectacular. My 2 rinds who were very reluctant having never kayaked also loved it. Thank you.

It was fun! The river was quite calm. Families with children can manage it easily :) The guide was very helpful!
