Zrmanja and Krupa are among the most beautiful rivers in Europe: perfectly clear warm water, spectacular canyon with magnificent waterfalls. They are easy and safe enough for beginner canoeists but their scenery makes them also very exciting. You will see many fish and birds and explore typical karst phenomenon – living travertine waterfalls. The trip begins in Kastel Zegarski, only one hour drive from Zadar. You will quickly learn how to handle sit-on-top kayaks as you slowly enter the canyon. After the first hour of paddling down easy rapids you will – if time and weather permit – visit beautiful Krupa waterfalls and swim under them. More waterfalls and rapids wait for you as you continue down Zrmanja towards Muskovci where the trip ends. At the end of the trip optionally you can enjoy refreshments at a nearby restaurant or take a picnic on your own.

ACTIVITY LEVEL:No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 6 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket , a helmet and a paddle, plus long neoprene suit and a rain jacket in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items (camera drinks, etc.). Don’t forget to bring shorts or a bathing suit, a T-shirt, water shoes, a towel, sun cream and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.

Toller Ausflug in atemberaubender Natur

★★★★★ Reviewed by Kathrin on 2022-08-31
Mein 7-jähriger Sohn und ich (Mama) haben an der geführten Kajaktour auf der Zrmanja Ende August 2022 teilgenommen. Es erfolgte vor Ort eine professionelle Einführung für alle Teilnehmenden, sodass die Fahrt für jedermann gut mitzumachen war. Aufgrund des im Sommer niedrigen Wasserstandes an einigen Stellen war die Fahrt zum Teil etwas "holprig" im Sinne einer Staubildung der Boote an Engstellen :-). An schwierigeren Stellen blieb immer einer der Begleiter stehen und stieg aus und jedes Boot wurde einzeln und sicher durch die Stelle geleitet. Die Fahrt ging gemächlich vorbei an der beeindruckend schönen Landschaft rund um die Zrmanja und das Wasser des Flusses war glasklar, erfrischend und absolut wunderschön. Wir waren etwa 4 Stunden auf dem Fluss und konnten an mehreren Stellen auch baden und ins Wasser springen. Wir haben den Ausflug sehr genossen - es war ein wunderschöner Tag und ich würde wieder über den Anbieter buchen. Damit die Kinder auch beim Paddeln mithelfen können, würde ich frühestens Kinder ab 7-8 Jahren mitnehmen. Für Jüngere ist die Teilnahme auch möglich, aber dann muss man sich wohl darauf einstellen, allein zu paddeln :-). Am Ende erfolgte der Rücktransport zum Auto für den Fahrer und ich konnte mein Kind auch gleich mitnehmen. Absolute Empfehlung in allen Punkten. Und Muskelkater am nächsten Tag inklusive.
