VELEBIT OFFROAD

JEEP SAFARI IN THE VELEBIT

What the Alps is to the French, Austrians and Swiss, the Velebit is to the Croats. It’s a mountain that creates feelings of admiration and humility. The best way to explore these magnificent mountains is to join our adventurous off-road programme. This programme is ideal for those who prefer getting their hands dirty and exploring villages off the well-beaten tourist paths. If adventure is your middle name join us in exploring the wild side of the Velebit mountains!

CANUING/RAFTING/SEA KAYAKING

ON THE RIVER ZRMANJA

Discover the beauty of nature in a different way along the breathtaking river Zrmanja.

Did you know that Zadar gets its water from this river because it is so clear and clean?

The rivers in the continental part are lined with dense forests and mountains. Those near the sea have green banks and deep rocky canyons. The average difficulty level of whitewater is III, only on the Dobra and Una rivers you can expect whitewater level IV.

You will quickly learn to master a sit-on-top kayak to slowly travel down the gorge. These two-person kayaks are very stable and easy to manoeuvre, with a waterproof 25 litre container for the safe storage of your camera and belongings. After rowing along easy rapids for an hour, you can visit the beautiful Krupa waterfalls. More waterfalls and rapids await further along the Zrmanja river. No previous experience of canoeing is necessary. We use two-person kayaks, on request with a child’s seat, which can be controlled easily and safely. You will be given a paddle, life vest, helmet, and wet suits and rain jackets in case the weather is a little damp.

Canoe: You will travel the river in canoes under the guidance of experienced canoe guides. You do not need any previous knowledge. Children from 10 years of age accompanied by adults can also participate.

MODRIC CAVE

Slip through narrow cave paths!

Modric cave was discovered in 1995 and opened to the public in 2004. It is a pristine natural phenomenon 20 minutes by car from Punta Skala. Because of its specific micro-climate, Modric cave can only be visited in smaller groups accompanied by expert guides and cavers who share their experience and knowledge with visitors.

Experience one of the most beautiful caves on the Mediterranean. The cave Modric is 829 m long and rich in cave jewellery. It is not illuminated, but participants will be given helmets (equipped with lights) and suits. It is an interesting experience because you have to slip through the cave even in narrow parts.
