Looking for a short, refreshing break in your hot Croatian vacation? We take you on two exciting kayak day trips in some wildly beautiful river valleys!
Come and refresh yourself before or after travelling to the sea. The best two rivers of the Croatian Highlands (“Gorski Kotar”), each beautiful in its own right, are waiting for you. This trip is suited for everyone who likes to be in or around water. No former experience required – your guide will help you learn the safety rules and techniques necessary for the activity. Besides each day’s adventure, relax back at the hotel, enjoy our delicious traditional Croatian cuisine and go for a short swim in the nearby river. Kayaking is the best way to experience the secret places of Croatia’s interior.

You will stay in an idyllic 3-star hotel near Novigrad na Dobri. Each room includes its own bathroom and shower, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and TV.
Every day you will have a buffet breakfast and a dinner menu consisting of famous Croatian specialties at the hotel. For lunch you can order a lunch package for (usually) 10€/package. Besides, we will make sure to stop at local stores to stock up on snacks.
A pick-up at the Zagreb or Rijeka Airport is included in the prices. Please ask us for pick-ups at Pula, Zadar or Split Airport, which we will provide for a surcharge. We can drop you off either at Rijeka or Zagreb Airport, or at Zadar Airport in the evening Day 3, or we can also arrange a place more suitable for your travel plans, if you wish.
You can, of course, arrive in your own vehicle. In this case, we will meet you at the hotel.
Arrival time: If you arrive by flight, please arrange to arrive at the airport before 4pm on our first day, if possible.
Group size: Usually, the group will consist of 6 to 8 guests plus one guide. The minimal group size is 4 guests. In case you book a trip, but the minimal group size is not reached by 3 weeks before departure, you have the following options: we can run the trip as a private tour for you for a surcharge, we can give you a full refund or we can reschedule you for another week.
Minimum age: Children from 6 years on are welcome to come.
Fitness & experience level: Moderate level of personal fitness required. We do not expect any prior paddling experience from you. If you already have some experience, that’s great, and we can show you some advanced skills. If you’re new to water sports, we will start with you from the beginning – that’s what your guide is there for. After the initial booking, we will check in with you as to your physical shape, health condition and special food diet.
Our guides speak English and Croatian as well as German or Swedish. If you would prefer a German- or Swedish-speaking guide, please contact us and we will see, who is available for your travel dates. However, please note that the entire group will likely be international and the common language spoken will therefore be English.
We will provide you with all specialized equipment needed for each activity – in this case kayaks (brands: Rob Fin or Aqua Design), life jacket, helmet, neoprene shoes, wet suit (if needed), waterproof boxes. We exclusively use first-rate, European-manufactured equipment with the CE-certificate for conformity with European health, safety, and environmental protection standards.
After booking your trip, we will send you a detailed list of personal items you will need to bring along with you – like bathing suit/pants, towel etc.
Departure Dates: If you would like to book this trip on a different date than is currently available, please contact us directly, since we may be able to shift dates around.

As a small company, however, we have to make sure that we secure ourselves against unexpectant loses. Hence we need to charge cancellation fees, in various steps.
