The basics

Explore the Zrmanja River with a guided rafting or kayaking tour. No previous whitewater experience is necessary and you can choose between gentle float trips and exhilarating whitewater adventures. Alternatively, you can hike to the Veliki Buk, an impressive waterfall that plunges over two successive limestone cliffs, from the trailhead in Muskovci or catch a glimpse of the Zrmanja from the peaks in nearby Velebit Nature Park.

Canoe safari / rafting on river Zrmanja
This trip is great if you are young, drink a lot. It is a party boat. Not a scenic cruise. The crew was fabulous, the lunch they served was way beyond expectations.
