For thousands of years Cetina river has been flowing and creating mystical shapes in its bed. With its waterfalls, subterranean tunnels, lakes, 180 meters high cliffs and a 50 meters high Gubavica waterfall, the Cetina river offers a true experience of untouched nature and crystal clear water for swimming.
The small expedition will be ready to ste off as soon as the guide gives you your helmets, life-jackets and neoprene pants and shirts.
As you descend into the canyon the sounds of the river become louder. In ten minutes you find yourself in the midst of the Cetina canyon. Swimming in natural pools, walking through the river and its rapids, going around waterfalls and lakes and going through the subterranean tunnels – this is all a part of the canyoning experience.
