Rafting in Croatia

Rafting the rivers of Croatia is a wonderful way to experience the unspoiled Croatian interior. Along the coast, the rivers are flanked by green banks and karstic canyons. Lush forests and mountains border the interior rivers. The grade of difficulty for most rivers is 3 but rises to grade 4 on the Dobra and Una rivers.

Following are some of Croatia's best rafting rivers:

Kupa River
Flowing between the forested slopes and valleys of Risnjak National Park, the Kupa has enough waterflow only in spring and after heavy rainfalls. It can be accessed through Karlovac.

Dobra River
Also converging on Karlovac, this is a great rafting destinations all year round.

Mreznica River
Another one of Karlovac's "four rivers", this river is known for its waterfalls, separated by stretches of calm water. The upper river is good for canyoning.

Korana River
From Plitvice Lakes National Park, this is another great river to raft in early spring and after heavy rains.

Una River
Forming the border between Croatia and Bosnia, this river is an exciting rafting experience downstream of the Strbacki buk waterfall, especially when water levels are high.

Zrmanja River
Scenically gorgeous, this river is best rafted in the spring and kayaked in the summer.

Krka River
In the upper part of the Krka National Park, rafting this river takes you through the loveliest and most unspoiled scenery of the park.

Cetina River
The banks of this river are dense with vegetation and the cliffs, waterfalls and caves along the way make it scenically unforgettable.
