This tour isn’t just an adventure; it’s a journey through thousands of years of natural history. The Cetina River has carved a path through the landscape, creating a mystical canyon filled with awe-inspiring waterfalls, serene pools, and intriguing underground tunnels. One of the most breathtaking sights you’ll encounter is the Gubavica waterfall, which majestically cascades from a height of 50 meters.

As you navigate through the canyon, there are three scheduled breaks, each offering its own unique set of thrills. You’ll get to explore mysterious underground tunnels, swim in natural pools that seem straight out of a fairy tale, and witness the raw power of nature at the river’s rapids.

The tour concludes near the Kraljevac Hydro Power Plant. Here, our team will assist you in getting out of your wet gear and provide a comfortable ride back to our canyoning center.

For anyone who loves action and nature it's great! We really enjoyed the tour, you might better be sporty and a bit tough when sliding through the rapids and jumping over rocks, but we never felt unsafe, the equipment was good and our guide Mitch was fun! We did the advanced tour even though it was our first time and it was the best decision, the instructions were clear and the view from the abseiling part was amazing.
