Day trips

Mreznica canyon kayaking

Back

SHORT DESCRIPTION:

To reach the upper canyon of Mreznica between Primislje and Trzic, the most beautiful part of the river right in the wilderness, you need a little more effort. The adventure takes us through a gorge so narrow and deep that the sun enters for only a few hours each day, around noon, creating spectacular light effects. We will bypass cliffs of carved white rocks, lush vegetation and cascading waterfalls, strong freshwater springs and pools of water which are great for swimming in summer. The second highest waterfall on the Mreznica (8m) is a magical place ideal for swimming and a picnic.

ACTIVITY LEVEL:

No previous kayaking experience is needed even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks with optional child seat which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket and a paddle, plus long neoprene suit & rain jacket in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items (camera drinks, etc.). Shorts or bathing suit, T-shirt and sandals (or sport shoes) is all you need to wear on the river. Don't forget your towel, sun cream, water and picnic.

GROUP SIZE:

Min 4 – max 30 persons per group; larger groups are on request.
Note: if the departure has less than 4 persons signed up and the clients still want to do the trip rather than cancel we charge 20% extra

I found raftrek by chance, on the internet. I booked with them because Branka, in the office, was so good at replying to all my queries, and I felt that we were in safe hands. My husband, 14 year old daughter and I were met from the airport by Branimir, who looked after us for the whole of our time with raftrek. He delivered us to our guesthouse ( a 3 hour drive away), took us out to dinner, took us kayaking ( there were just the three of us that day) and took us white water rafting with another family the second day. And after all that he took us to our hotel in Zagreb. The kayaking and rafting were amazing. Beautiful scenery, plunges in pools, kayaking down waterfalls...the only bit I wasn't keen on was when the raft capsized. It was a bit scary but Branimir was straight over to see if I was OK. By the end of our trip we were all a bit in love with him - even my husband! We were so well looked after. My husband isn't sporty but he loved it. It was the perfect holiday for a 14 year old who doesn't usually want to be with her parents that much. I would recommend raftrek to anyone. Book with them - you won't regret it! (P.S. Say HI to Branimir!) 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating 5-star rating

Tages-trip auf dem upper mreznica river mit 13 kerlen, sehr schön und an dem tag auch abenteuerlich wg. hohem wasserstand... aber guide Branimir war stets auf der höhe und hat situativ nach gründlichem überlegen immer die richtigen entscheidungen getroffen. gründliche sicherheitseinweisung und gutes equipment! sympatische guides Branimier und Philipp - auf jeden fall sein geld wert der kayaking-trip! schöne landschaft inklusive. 4-star rating 4-star rating 4-star rating 4-star rating
