RAFTING and KAYAKING MREŽNICA – LOWER COURSE OF THE RIVER
The abundance of waterfalls, greenery and clear, hot water – this is Mrežnica! It deserves a special place among the rivers of the Croatian karst. It is one of the most beautiful rivers in Croatia, ideal for rafting and kayaking adventures.
At Mrežnica you can enjoy our excursions for up to several days. It is usually sailed between Generalski Stol and Zvečaj, on the edge of the wilderness and civilization: it starts from the bridge in Keići and ends at the “DP” restaurant next to our Rafting Center. Swimming and conquering waterfalls are integral parts of the excursion.
The equipment we use
We use professional rafting boats with capacity for up to 10 people, each boat has an experienced guide-skipper in charge of training safety of the crew. There is also a waterproof bag or container (barrel) in the boat for waterproofing cameras and the like. Each participant gets the necessary equipment – helmet, paddle and protective vest, and in case of colder or windy time, additional protective equipment – neoprene suit, anorak. If it’s a kayak excursion we use hypalon kayaks RobFin – a model for two adults and one child. Kayaks are very stable and easy to use. Each group has one or two guides (depending on the size).
