Cetina River springs at an altitude of 385m in the north-western slopes of the Dinara mountain range near the village of Cetina, 7 km north of Vrlika, in the very heart of Central Dalmatia. It flows into the Adriatic Sea in the small seaside town of Omis, 20 km south of Split.
The rafting on the Cetina River is also suitable for families with children. No previous rafting experience is needed.
The first part of the Cetina rafting route is easy and it takes lots of paddling. Fresh air, crystal clear water full of fish and the Mediterranean climate guarantee pure wellbeing. There are several stops during the rafting trip, where you can swim and relax.
The second part of the Cetina rafting route is quite demanding. The skippers call this part 'labyrinth'. Along the way, you will come across a dangerous rapid called 'Oblacnik', a natural barrier that needs to be crossed by foot. The next few kilometers are the best, fastest and most interesting part of the rafting adventure with many rapids and waterfalls. You will also pass the 'Tisne Stine', a 10 m wide canyon between two 50 m high cliffs.
The 3-hour long route ends at the excursion site of Radmanove Mlinice (the Family Radman Mills) where you can have lunch.
If the group has less than 4 persons, and the client wants the trip to be held anyway, the price of the trip increases by 20% per person.
