We’ll escape the city crowds and heat to enjoy green scenery while rafting on Cetina River. We’ll first meet Stipe who owns a rafting company and his crew. They will take us to the village in the hinterland by the Cetina river where will be our starting point. He will give us introduction and explain all the saftey aspects of rafting. Then we’ll split into teams and raft down the river. Keep in mind it’s not wild white water rafting, there are couple of exciting points on our way down the river but you shouldn’t be intimidated since it’s not high level extreme rafting but more sutable for diverse group of people. After we finish with rafting, we’ll meet the Bartulovic Family and try their homemade food and products they usually sell at the Green Market in Split. Their signature local dish soparnik and one of the most famous dishes in Croatia - homemade peka usually are the highlight of the day. The Cetina River flows through a popular and beautiful region. Also - visiting this lovely local couple will give you the ultimate local experience.

If you're not signing up for this, you're missing out. The river was super refreshing and both approachable for any level of rafter and exciting enough to get a few high pitched yells.
Most of all though, the food cooked by our charming hosts in their home was mouth-wateringly good. My Coelhos and I ate so so so much and talked about this food for months afterwards.
Don't miss this.
Great experience of rafting the river of calm water and medium rapids along with a delicious homestyle meal.
I loved our guides for this. It was a great mix of fun and difficult rafting through rapids, and then serene floating down more calm parts of the river. Just a short drive from Split, it's a nice easy day. After the rafting you go to a great little farm where this old Croatian couple makes you a great home cooked meal. It was lovely.
Lovely for adventures and to get closer with the Croatian culture and cuisine. I totally loved it!
A moderately challenging rafting experience coupled with a phenomenal local meal and cooking demo of one of Croatia’s signature foods. Add in gorgeous mountain views and its an overall wonderful experience.
