Zipline is a type of adventure that features an adrenaline rush on a stainless steel wireline, which is mounted on a slope, and offers beautiful panoramic views. The Zipline cable is designed to allow a person to fasten freely with moving straps and to travel by gravity from top to bottom of the slope, allowing rapid movement and adrenaline.
One of our best-selling tours from Split is the trip to Omiš on a zipline adventure in which visitors are introduced from a different perspective to the beautiful Cetina River Canyon. The whole adventure takes an average of three hours, with the total length of the downhill zipline being 2,100 meters, of which 8 wires are made, the longest being 700 meters. The zipline is 150 meters high, and the speed that can be reached when descending is 65 km / h. The whole excursion consists not only of going down the zipline, but also of taking a short walk through nature and training before climbing the wire. Until the start of the zipline and back, transportation is provided, and prior to the start at the polygon, each individual gets their own equipment needed to get down the zipline. Throughout the tour, you are guided by an expert guide who walks you through the theory before going down, and later gives you instructions for the downhill. For the excursion it is recommended to wear adequate “stronger” shoes and bring water, cameras, cell phones, cameras, etc. The minimum age for this adventure activity is 7 years, while the maximum weight of visitors is 140kg.
