KAYAKING & CAMPING

MREZNICA & ZRMANJA RIVERS, CROATIA

This is a more than just a 3 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, visit Plitvice Lakes or Paklenica National Park, 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 we provide a transfer to Zadar city (or surroundings) after the trip.

Note: days of this kayaking & camping adventure in Croatia can be switched on request, starting with pick up in Zadar and ending with drop off in Zagreb, first Zrmanja and then Mreznica.

TOUR ITINERARY – Kayaking & Camping Mreznica & Zrmanja Rivers

Day 1: Mreznica River Kayaking

We will pick you up in your accommodation in Zagreb and start our kayaking & camping Croatia adventure with the upper section of the Mreznica River in Primislje. We travel 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. It will take us 3 hours, break included, to complete our descent.

After the trip we will settle in the camp by the Mreznica River and enjoy a delicious meal by the fire.

Day 2: Plitvice Lakes or Paklenica National Park

Today you can choose to visit Plitvice Lakes or Paklenica National Park.

If it’s Plitvice you choose you will enjoy the sequence of 16 turquoise lakes linked together with beautiful waterfalls and travertine pools which are really as beautiful as in the photos, even more. The lakes are surrounded by beech and pine forests and are home to extensive wildlife. We will walk by the lakes, past the waterfalls and the trails will occasionally lead us up to amazing viewpoints where you will be able to admire the complete picture of this amazing natural attraction.

Paklenica National Park encompasses the small and the big Paklenica canyons and their surrounding area. We will hike along the big one (Velika Paklenica) and make our way to one of the nicest huts in the canyon. Apart from being a paradise for hikers, Paklenica is a worldwide known climbing destination due to its amazing rock formations. If you prefer, you can also decide to rock climb instead of hike (optional).

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

Day 3: Zrmanja River Kayaking

We start our morning with a drive to the kayaking startpoint in Kastel Zegarski 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 10 m fall (that we will not kayak down but walk around) is fun with lots of rapids and action. It will take us some 4-5 hours and we will finish our adventure by the bridge in Muskovci where you can have a drink and something to eat in a local fast food by the river.

Depending on your next destination we can drive you to Zadar or back to Zagreb.
