Kupa, the third longest river in Croatia

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.

  • Difficulty levels I and II.
  • Duration: 2-4 hours.
  • Min. persons per boat: 4
