Cetina River Tours

star-5
16 Reviews
Cetina River
Flowing for more than 60 miles (96 kilometers) from its source at Dinara on the Croatia–Bosnia and Herzegovina border all the way to the Adriatic Sea near Split, the Cetina River is a main player in Dalmatia’s adventure-sports scene. Its rushing rapids, waterfalls, and tunnels make it ideal for rafting and canyoning excursions. 

The Basics
Travelers based in Split can escape the city for a day and try adrenaline-fueled activities at the Cetina River. Join a white-water rafting trip that traverses Class II and Class III rapids, as well as floating along stretches of scenic Croatian countryside. Alternatively, go canyoning with a guide, navigating your way along the river to reach waterfalls and natural pools. For travelers who would rather stay dry, consider ziplining across the river for a whole new perspective on the rapids below. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Cetina River is a must for adventurous travelers. 
  • Canyoning and rafting tours typically include specialist equipment, such as life jackets, helmets, and wetsuits, but be sure to wear sturdy sports shoes and sunscreen.
  • While canyoning and rafting tours can be adapted to suit skill levels, they do require that participants be mobile and possess a certain level of fitness. 
  • If you’re doing a rafting or canyoning tour, bring a towel and dry clothes to change into after.

How to Get There
The Cetina River empties into the Adriatic Sea at Omiš, about 16 miles (26 kilometers) east of Split, though most rafting tours take place farther upriver at towns such as Penšići. As public transport in this area is minimal, it’s best to go by organized tour. 

When to Get There 
Rafting and canyoning tours typically run from April to November and are dependent on weather and river conditions. Peak visitor months are July and August, but even then, the river remains uncrowded. 

Velika Gubavica Waterfall
Many canyoning tours along the Cetina River stop at the 160-foot-high (50-meter-high) Velika Gubavica waterfall. This scenic cascade, situated in the Cetina River canyon, offers the chance for visitors to rappel, cliff jump, and hike in the lush surrounds. Even for adrenaline-averse travelers, the waterfall is worth a visit, if only to admire its picturesque appearance.
