Mrežnica canyon kayaking

The source of one of the most beautiful rivers of the Croatian karst lies tucked away in a cave near the town of Slunj. On its 64-kilometer course, the river Mrežnica forms 93 travertine waterfalls, out of which 14 are located in its upper section where our kayaking adventure takes place. This is the most attractive and easily accessible part of the river, filled with cliffs of carved white rocks and lush vegetation. Clear emerald water, untouched nature and magical views of the mighty waterfalls will without a doubt leave anyone breathless.




No matter which direction you are coming from (Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes, Rijeka…) the meeting point is in the village of Gornje Primišlje. If you booked an organised transfer with us, please contact us to arrange the pick up place and time.

Our kayaking trip on the river Mrežnica will take us 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. Our professional guides will secure waterfalls and rapids on key places so our guests pass it as easily as possible.

It will take us 3 hours, break included, to complete this adventure. No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 8 years of age, accompanied by parents, can participate.




Each guest will be provided with basic kayaking equipment and safety gear: kayak (we usually use 2-person sit-on-top inflatable kayaks which are easy and safe to navigate), paddle, neoprene suit, swim vest, helmet and dry bag.

Things to bring with you: shorts or bathing suit, T-shirt, water shoes or sneakers, towel, sunscreen, water and snack. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.
