You may not have rafting experience or be in the best shape, but no worries! Extreme rafting welcomes all skill levels and our professionals will take great care of you.

    RAFTING ON CETINA RIVER

    09:45h - 12:45hIt takes approximately 3 hours to cover the distance of 12 km on the Cetina River. Both regular and extreme rafting is done on the river, but because we're doing an extreme, it's important to mention that we're rafting down the different parts of the river. Although it has been called extreme rafting, it's not at a level that's too difficult for a beginner or presents any risks. It is a fun, but not dangerous river, and this trail features Grade 2, and some Grade 3 rapids. The water temperature varies depending on the season, but it ranges from 14-17 degrees Celsius, even on the hottest of days.
    The nature surrounding the Cetina River leaves you speechless. The entire area is protected, so nature is left intact. There are calm parts where the water is so clear that you can see every detail; even fishes on the bottom. Rapids and slow sections complement each other, giving you time to enjoy the adrenalin while relaxing in the meantime. On our way, you'll have few swimming stops, and if you are not afraid of heights you can also try cliff jumping. To top it off, you will be rafting on the same waters where medieval pirates once ruled; what a great story to tell!

Know before you go

Is Cetina river rafting suitable for beginners?

Yes, this rafting activity is suitable for beginners. You don't need to have any previous experience, and the water is not too challenging. The white water grade is 2 and has some elements of grade 3 (the grading scale goes from 1 to 6). It is a good rafting experience for a first-timer while being fun at the same time for experienced ones. If you are new to rafting, our instructor will teach you the basics and take care of you throughout the entire trip. You won't be in danger if you fall into the water, just make sure to follow the safety instructions and wear your helmet and life jacket the entire time.

Is it safe to do cliff jumping?

Cliff jumping can become quite dangerous, but in our case, we jump from proven and tested locations. The cliffs are not too high, the water is slow, and the depth is great. Our instructor will watch for your safety at all times. When doing this, you must jump with your legs straight and your arms held tightly to your body.

Can I bring my camera?

With such breathtaking scenery, this activity surely deserves capturing with the camera; however, it's hard to do that. With all the rapids, and water splashing around you are having high chances of either losing or breaking your equipment. Unfortunately, the only possible way to capture these moments is if you gear up with a go-pro. You are more than welcome to mount it on top of your helmet.
