CANYONING RIVER CETINA

Cetina river has been flowing for thousands of years and thus creating mystical shapes in its bed. The crystal clear water, river suitable for swimming offers a true experience of untouched nature with its cliffs up to 180 meters high, waterfalls, lakes, subterranean tunnels and 50 meters high waterfall Gubavica.
The guide will give you life-jacket, helmet, neoprene pants and shirt, and the small expedition is ready to set off.
The sound of the river becomes louder as you  go down the canyon. Ten minutes later you will find yourself in the middle of the Cetina canyon. Walking through the river and the rapids, going through the subterranean tunnels, swimming in natural pools, going around waterfalls and lakes - all of this is canyoning.
