Mountain bike tour, Zagreb, Croatia, view from Sljeme peak


  • Kayak Croatia trip down rapids and waterfalls of the beautiful Mreznica River
  • Clear emerald water, untouched nature and magical landscapes
  • Swimming in the river, jumping off waterfalls and lots of fun

The source of one of the most beautiful rivers of the Croatian karst lies tucked away in a cave near the town of Slunj. On its 64-kilometer course, the river Mreznica forms 93 travertine waterfalls. Its clear emerald water and untouched nature will without a doubt leave anyone breathless.

We designed 2 different kayaking trip on 2 most beautiful sections.

The first one (that we call Mreznica River Kayaking) is situated closer to Zagreb and is suitable for everyone searching for a soft adventure with lots of swimming and fun.

The second one (that we call Mreznica Canyon Kayaking) corresponds to Mreznica’s upper section filled with cliffs of carved white rocks and lush vegetation. It’s a great choice for those looking for more adrenaline and impressive scenery.


Our kayaking day starts with pick-up in your Zagreb acommodation and a 1-hour drive to the countryside near the village of Belavici.

This part of the river is very welcoming, with warm gentle water and waterfalls that are ideal for jumping and swimming. It will take us 3 hours, break included, to complete this adventure. No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate.


No matter which direction you are coming from (Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes, Rijeka…) the meeting point for this kayak Croatia adventure is in the village of Gornje Primislje. If you booked an organised transfer with us, please contact us to arrange the pick up place and time. The drive from Zagreb takes around 1h45.

Our kayaking trip will take us through a narrow and deep gorge with spectacular cascades up to 8 meters high. You can have fun cliff jumping, taking crazy photos, climbing waterfalls and swimming under them. Our professional guides will secure waterfalls and rapids on key places so our guests pass it as easily as possible.

It will take us 3 hours, break included, to complete this adventure. No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 8 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate.
