The source of the Kupa River is in the National Park Risnjak in the Gorski Kotar region. It flows through the forest-covered mountain slopes and rich valleys, and partly alongside the Croatian-Slovenian border. The Kupa River is known as the longest of the "four rivers of Karlovac City”.
In the spring when the snow melts and after heavy rains, the Kupa River becomes an excellent location for a white water rafting adventure. The river offers recreational rafting with small cascades and easy rapids suitable for people of all ages. The Kupa Rafting trip takes 2 hours when the water level is high or up to 4 hours when the level of the water is low.
The rafting route is relatively easy, and a perfect choice for the first white water rafting experience and families with children.
The price includes VAT, equipment, skipper, and insurance.
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.
LICENSED RAFTING GUIDES are experienced skippers, who have an excellent knowledge of techniques and tactics for riding wild waters. They are ready to guide complete beginners, as well as those more experienced. These trips don't require a previous rafting/kayaking experience.
EQUIPMENT: helmet, life jacket, paddle, one waterproof container per boat for personal items, plus long neoprene suit & rain jacket in case of cold weather.
The best time for rafting on the Kupa River is in spring and fall when the river has the highest water level. In summer the river is most ideal for kayaking/canoeing.
*NOTES: the kayaking boats will be used in case of lower water level.
Because of its difficulty levels classified in category I-II, the Kupa River is also suitable for persons with disabilities and children 7 years and older.
