  • Canyon Cetina - Thousands of years Cetina River has been flowing persistently through the canyon, creating magical shapes in its bed. Crystal clear and pleasant for swimming, Cetina River today represents the genuine experience of the intact nature with its 180 meters high cliffs, wild rapids, basins, lakes and subterranean tunnels.
  • Gubavica waterfalls - 50 meters high waterfall.  


If you are looking for a relaxing excursion, full of fun and adventure, Canyoning is the perfect choice for you. Canyoning on Cetina is one of the best and most beautiful adventures you can take in Croatia and beyond!

The spring of river Cetina is situated in Dalmatian countryside near the village Vrlika. Cetina is 104 km long river that enters the sea in the city of Omiš 25 km south of Split. The best part of our Canyoning adventure is on the middle part of the river just near the village Zadvarje where you are getting ready for the truly exciting adventure along the Cetina River canyon. On this part river Cetina through the thousands of years made the deepest canyon in its bed and most suitable for Canyoning adventure. After instructions, our guides provide you life-jacket, a helmet, a long neoprene pants and jacket. Our tour guide will help you to get familiar with the route and rules of the excursion to ensure the safety of all participants.

Walking through the river and rapids, passing through the underground tunnels, swimming in natural river basins, lazing of waterfalls and lakes - all this is Canyoning experience on Cetina! Cetina River flows for thousands of years and has therefore created mystical forms in its canyon. The crystal clear water and river suitable for swimming offers a real experience of untouched nature, with its cliffs up to 180 meters, waterfalls, lakes, underground tunnels and a 60-meter high Gubavica waterfall and the climb to the “step” behind the “water curtains” will be an experience worth remembering. The sound of the river becomes louder as you descend into the canyon. Ten minutes later, you will find yourself inside the canyon of Cetina.

We booked two different tours with this company (5 islands and krka) and we had a fantastic time on both! Our guide for Krka was Jelena who was really funny and knowledgeable! The boat for the 5 island tour + blue cave is spacious and comfortable so you can relax while on your way to different spots! Highly recommend!!

We had a great time on this tour of Krka waterfalls. The trip was very smooth and well organised and, needless to say, the waterfalls themselves were breath-taking. Jelena our guide made the trip especially memorable - she was enthusiastic, friendly and funny and kept us entertained on the journey there and back with plenty of information about the local area, and interesting facts and anecdotes about Croatian history and life today. We had a fantastic time, and would highly recommend this tour! Thank you for sharing the beautiful waterfalls with us.
The best traveling experience ever, really nice tour guide and driver. Really recommend this tour!!!!
This was a fantastic tour of Plitvice lakes and waterfalls. Our tour guide Antonella was brilliant - very friendly, knowledgable and patient. She explained everything very clearly about what would happen and where we would go (as we were a big group!) and she made us feel very well looked after inside the park. Needless to say, the waterfalls were beautiful and we were amazed by it all. A great day!
The trip was amazing. The tour guide Jelena was the best. So friendly and literally the best. Thank you so much for such a great time. The scenery was beautiful and I love the fact that we got to swim in the waterfall. Thanks guys for such a great time.
