Zadvarje, Croatia

Discover the Charm of Zadvarje: A Gateway to Adventure

Nestled at the brink of the deepest segment of the Cetina river gorge, Zadvarje is a quaint village just 45 minutes from the city of Split. This scenic hamlet serves as the perfect base for a variety of river and inland adventures.

As you arrive in Zadvarje, the village center greets you with an opportunity for a delightful sightseeing tour. Here, you can catch a glimpse of Dalmatia’s largest waterfall, The Great Gubavica, a highlight of our canyoning tours. For culinary enthusiasts, the local tavern offers traditional dishes like ‘meat under the baking lid’ or ‘pasticada’ with gnocchi.

Visit on a Tuesday, and you’ll find yourself amidst a bustling cattle market where locals from Zadvarje and nearby areas sell cattle, handmade artifacts, and food. The friendly villagers warmly invite you to sample their products, no strings attached.

Zadvarje isn’t just a stopover; it’s a destination for thrill-seekers and adventurers. Known as the best adventure playground in Dalmatia, the village offers a plethora of activities, from rafting and hiking to jeep safaris, canyoning, canoeing, and biking.

Rafting and canoe safaris embark from a section of the canyon 20 minutes north of the village, featuring class II and III rapids. The exhilarating canyoning tours commence just 5 minutes from our base, concluding near the Small Gubavica waterfall, where our river tubing tour begins.

For those seeking a more relaxed pace, the proximity to Mount Biokovo makes Zadvarje ideal for hiking, biking, and rock climbing. The Nature Park Biokovo, rising to the south of the village, offers endless trails through stunning landscapes, with views of the Adriatic Sea and its islands. This region is perfect for bikers and history buffs, with trails connecting the river, mountain, and sea.

Near the village center, a 10-minute walk leads to a small rock climbing area with 20 sports routes. For avid climbers, larger areas are just a short drive away in Brela and Omiš.

A 30-minute drive east brings you to Imotski, famous for its Blue and Red lakes. Here, canoeing along the Vrljika river is a popular activity, often combined with a visit to Imotski.

The southern border of Zadvarje leads to the beaches of Brela, where an underground water source at Vrulja bay is accessible only from the sea. This area is perfect for sea kayaking, snorkeling, and SUP tours during the warm summer months.
