Enjoy being on the water? Experience the wild beauty and adrenaline of Northern Croatia’s most amazing water destinations!
Come with us on this active and yet refreshing adventure holiday! We take you to the best two rivers of the Croatian Highlands (“Gorski Kotar”), each beautiful in its own right, and then travel on for a gorgeous day of sea kayaking as well as some more river excitement in Northern Dalmatia. This trip is suited for everyone who likes to be in or around water, or who wants to learn more about different styles of kayaking. No former experience required – your guide will help you learn the safety rules and techniques necessary for the activity. After the excitement of each day, relax back at the hotel, enjoy our delicious traditional Croatian cuisine and go for a short swim in the nearby river or sea. Discover Croatia by kayak – what a wonderful door into this country full of rivers, waterfalls and islands!

The first 3 nights we will spend in an idyllic 3-star hotel in the Dobra River valley, then transfer to a similar hotel on the coast near the city of Zadar, with direct access to the beach. 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, most days we will stop at a local restaurant. When our trip takes us too far away from the restaurants, or if you prefer to bring lunch with you, you can order a lunch package for (usually) 10€/package at the hotel. 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. The standard drop-off location is Zadar Airport, but we can arrange a place more suitable for your travel plans, if you wish (e.g. Rijeka/Zagreb).
You can, of course, arrive in your own vehicle and either take it down to Northern Dalmatia with you, or we drop you off, where you parked your car for the week.
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. If you book a trip, but the minimal group size is not reached by a few weeks before departure, you will receive a full refund.
Minimum age: Children from 8 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 – kayaks (brands: Rob Fin or Aqua Design), poss. raft (Aqua Design), life jacket, helmet, neoprene shoes, wet suit (if needed), waterproof boxes, bicycles (type: gravel bikes) and sea kayaks (brand: Prijon). 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, runners or hiking shoes, backpack 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.
