We start our day with sea kayaking
instruction on the beach just in front of the hotel and take a trip into the Zrmanja River canyon. The water here is brackish (mixed fresh and saltwater) which is the reason for abundant life under the surface. The eel which dwells here is a favorite gourmet specialty, but we are more likely to spot turtles, fish and birds along the way. After kayaking
upstream on calm water like oil, swimming and jumping off cliffs we make an optional lunch or coffee stop in Obrovac, the only town in the canyon some 11 km from the mouth of the river. Picturesque valley of the Zrmanja River, rich gastronomic offer, fishing opportunities and long history, make Obrovac town more suitable for tourism every day.
Age range, type of group
No previous kayaking experience is needed and even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks with optional child seat which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket, a paddle and a helmet, plus long neoprene suits and rain jackets in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items (camera, drinks, etc.). Don’t forget to bring shorts or bathing suit, T-shirt, spare socks and sandals (or sport shoes), towel, sun cream and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt.
Sleeping and meals
Accommodation is provided in a newly renovated 3* apart-hotel “Castrum Novum” situated right on the beach, at the quiet end of the village.
