Rafting on Cetina River, Croatia

Rafting in Croatia – near Split, Omiš and Makarska

Go for the adrenaline rush of paddling down the beautiful rapids, learn to jump off 5 meters high rocks, take a shower under a beautiful waterfall, pass through a 40-meter-long cave and swim in the small lake with fascinating stalactites and stalagmites. Further downstream awaits you the “Island of Love” and its inhabitants, together with the most beautiful  green river and the magnificent Cetina canyon.

You don’t need prior experience

For rafting in this section you do not need any previous rafting experience.

Our rafting section is located near the town of Omis, only 40 minutes and 30 kilometers by car from the tourist cities – Split and Makarska.

Departures are every day in the morning and  in the afternoon.

Be part of the adventure!

For rafting on the river Cetina you do not need prior experience nor special physical fitness.

For a pleasant stay during the whole trip you should bring a swimsuit or shorts, T-shirt, sneakers or sandals. In case of cold weather, we provide neoprene suits and neoprene shoes.

You should also bring: a dose of adventure, positive energy and a smiling face, then you are completely ready for your rafting adventure! Everything else our crew will take care of.

At the final destination we will have enough time to change into dry clothes, enjoy the unspoiled nature and have a look at the pictures taken on the trip.
