In Split Town and the surrounding area, different conditions are available for each adventure. We have Marjan Hill for hiking, walking, kayaking, swimming, diving. We have a river, just 30 minutes from the center – the Cetina river. Down there you can meet all faces of adventure tourism. But which are the top 5 Adventure Tours in Split? Read now!
Adventure Tours on the Cetina river
The Cetina, the longest Dalmatian river, begins its 105 km long journey to the sea at the foot of the Dinara Mountain where it springs from several springs – the spring of the Cetina, at 380 m above sea level, the most abundant of which are three: the largest, Glavas, Vukovica spring and Batica spring. The springs unite in Peručko Lake. From there the Cetina River continues with full force towards Omiš, where it flows into the Adriatic Sea. That’s the spot where you hop in!
Omiš is the meeting point and a start for all tourists who want more of their vacation. Adventure tours from Split or Makarska, they’re all starting here. Not only because there are a river and the sea, but there is a very beautiful little town worth one or two hours to see sighting. After that, grab some food and coffee and you are ready to explore the Cetina River’s secrets.
The first and the most popular Tour is
The rapids of the Cetina are not too demanding, and nature made up of waterfalls, caves, deep canyons and lush vegetation on the clean and green shores is enchanting. Here the warm Mediterranean climate meets the mountain canyon and the river and together they form a fairytale environment. Experiencing something special is a challenge for every adventurer, and rafting is tailored to all age groups. So bring kids with you, and all instructions you will get before the start.
The second Adventure Tour you should consider and the book is
Some locals were skeptical, and after this tour, they used to say – it was the unexpected and unseen beauty of the river they are watching every day!
You can choose between Basic or Extreme level. But people all together start walking down the river, then jumping into the river, then long and very fun swimming through the river indulging in rapids all way long. Something really special! The route is long for more than 2500 meters, and all of it is crossed by the foot. The altitude distance from start to finish is 73 meters, and the temperature of the river is between 15°C and 19°C (depends on the season). But after a couple of moments, you forget about the temperature J just looking around yourself that magnificent nature. In case you don’t swim, don’t you worry – all the time you are wearing a life jacket..
The extreme version includes jumping from a bit higher stones into the river and descending by rope down a rock with professional equipment. All with a final jump into the water right next to a large waterfall. Could it be better?
Cetina has one of the most beautiful canyons in Croatia. You just have to give her a chance to delight you!
