The Cetina river calls on you to jump in, take a swim, row a boat or a canoe, taste its specialities – frogs, crabs, trouts etc.

It is the longest soley Croatian river and provides water, electric power, food and income to a large number of the region’s population. It has become a „mecca“ for those in search of adventure, pleasure, peace and quiet.

Hiking and biking trails, canoeing, rafting, zip-lining, canyoning, fishing… Cetina river offers all these activities. Its refreshing temperature is quite inviting especially during high temperatures in July and August.

But, bear in mind a river can be tricky despite its calm apearance – never go alone, always inform someone where you are going and if possible take an experienced guide with you.

This waterfall some guides call Fifty-fifty because these are your odds in flipping over in your canoe. And if you don’t flip over then you have to jump off a cliff and into the cool Cetina river, at least that was the deal when we went canoeing.
