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.

Such a cool day organized by the fantastic city managers. It would be hard to get a more local experience than this. 10/10 day
Super fun! The rafting is not very intense so if you‚Äôre not experienced you‚Äôd definitely be able to keep up and enjoy yourself. Josip and Kiki are super fun people and very good guides so be ready for lots of laughs and a good time. The soparnik is something you don‚Äôt want to miss, and Anka and her husband are very sweet and welcoming, the food was great and you will definitely appreciate it after the rafting! üòä
Great experience. Would’ve loved to do it twice that’s how much i loved it.

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.
