The Mreznica River in Inland Croatia is popular among nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts because of its 93 waterfalls! This crystal clean river in Central Croatia, with rich flora and fauna, is ideal for swimming, kayaking or rafting through its great canyon with steep cliffs, natural whirlpools, waterfalls and short walkings over to small river islands. It offers also several stops for jumping from high cliffs.
The most exciting on the Mreznica River is its canyon with steep cliffs and 8 meter high "Milkovic" waterfall which simply takes your breath away. This is the second highest waterfall on the Mreznica and the only waterfall that cannot be passed with raft, but it requires a short walk around it.
There are two rafting sections on the river:
1. The UPPER section of Mreznica consists of several waterfalls height of up to 8 m. The rafting trip has also the elements of canyoning (natural waterslides, showering under waterfalls, jumping from high cliffs, walking through the canyon). The waterfalls can be crossed with natural waterslide, jumping from the cliff or walking around the cascade while the skipper throws the rafts down. This trip provides many opportunities to enjoy the canyon.
2. Rafting on the LOWER section of the river Mreznica is relatively easy, and a perfect choice for the first white water rafting experience and families with children.
The prices include 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.

Mreznica River is known as one of the "four rivers of Karlovac City". Although it is significantly shorter than other Karlovac’s rivers Dobra, Korana and Kupa, Mreznica deserves a special place among them because of its 93 waterfalls!
