RAFTING and KAYAKING MREŽNICA – UPPER COURSE OF THE RIVER
RONČEVIĆ SLAP-TOUNJSKI TRŽIĆ
Experience with us an untold story of the Slunj region about the untamed and wild Mrežnica. We will take you through some of the most beautiful waterfalls, rapids and travertine barriers. On our tour from Čiča Bridge to Tržič Bridge, we will row for more than 5 km to cross 26 barriers and rapids, which is covering one third of the 93 tidal barriers of a total flow of 64 km of “turquoise karst beauty”. After a wide and spacious shallow stream we come to the magnificent Rončević waterfall.
Immediately after Rončević’s waterfall, under the steep cliffs that formed a short gorge, the fascinating Milković Waterfall (8 m) is located, which takes the breath away from every visitor or seeker of the untouched. This is the second-largest waterfall on Mrežnica, flowing all the way to Smoljanović waterfall, i.e. the bridge in Tounjski Tržić. It is among the most beautiful waterfalls on Mrežnica, due to its form and the way it practically leads the water over a small “slide” formed in the middle of the waterfall, that is only notable during low water levels. It is precisely in this part, of only 1.2 km of flow, as many as 9 waterfalls were are squeezed in a narrow densely overgrown canyon, covered with white rocks, that only briefly lets sunlight in. In this part of the stream a powerful spring is located that in the summer reduces the temperature of Mrežnica for about 6-7°C. The influence of this spring is felt almost 5 kilometers downstream, which is evident in different vegetation along the river and waterfalls and other forms of sedentary phenomena. That’s where our karst adventure ends.
The equipment we use
We use professional SOTAR rafting boats with a capacity for up to 10 people, each boat has an experienced guide-skipper in charge of training safety of the crew. In the boat there is also a waterproof bag or container (barrel) 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).
