Amazing day out!
Out guide Joseph was amazing! The whole trip is fantastic but we loved travelling through the cave and cliff jumping at the end! It was the best trip out of everything we have done this holiday!

Rafting Cetina River Half Day Trip
Everything has been just perfect! Professional, great fun, super safe for the great outdoor lovers! The scenery is breathtaking, the vibe is comfy but exiting. Luca our guide has been wonderful, we couldn’t ask for more. When in Croazia, give yourself a favour: book it!

Cetina River Zipline Experience from Split
I was nervous about doing this. Booked it to keep my teenage boys from being bored. I absolutely loved it, as did they. They loved it for the adrenalin. I loved it for the incredible scenery. It was easy, the guides do all the work for you and I felt in safe hands.

Basic Canyoning on Cetina River from Split or Zadvarje
Super fun event! It requires medium Level hiking skills since you will be going down steep trails and the terrain is very rough. It is doable tho for anyone who has not done canyoning before. Staff was great -Shout out to Antonia and Boris! For being great tour guides. They walked participants through the process/logistics and share some fun facts along the way. I’m totally doing this again if I go back to Split!

Basic Canyoning on Cetina River from Split or Zadvarje
Fantastic day experiencing all canyoning has to offer. Experienced and friendly guides with good equipment. Quite a bit of hiking/scrambling on rocks etc but it was ok as guides helped you navigate this. Make sure to hydrate well and eat a big breakfast as there are quite a few hours without either during the trip

Great fun!

Cetina River Rafting Adventure from Split
Very safe and fun trip down the Cetina River in first week of September, Not enough flow for full-size rafts, more more then three-seater raft/kayak (as pictured). Guides were very knowledgable and good briefing explaining the trip at the start. Took a break half-way, and chance to jump in the very clean, cool, fresh water. Definitely a thing to do when in Split.

Half-Day Rafting Experience on Cetina River with Cliff Jumping and more
Me and my daughter had a fantastic experience rafting. Jake our guide worked very hard to ensure we had a safe exciting experience. He has great skill and knowledge of the water. We had the opportunity to swim in the river and jump off a cliff. A swim through a dark cold cave was also offered which gave us the opportunity to experience some of the surroundings.

How to Get There

The Cetina River empties into the Adriatic Sea at Omiš, about 16 miles (26 kilometers) east of Split, though most rafting tours take place farther upriver at towns such as Penšići. As public transport in this area is minimal, it’s best to go by organized tour.

Many canyoning tours along the Cetina River stop at the 160-foot-high (50-meter-high) Velika Gubavica waterfall. This scenic cascade, situated in the Cetina River canyon, offers the chance for visitors to rappel, cliff jump, and hike in the lush surrounds.
