The Cetina River has been flowing for thousands of years and thus creating mystical shapes in its bed. The crystal clear water and a river suitable for swimming offers a true experience of untouched nature with its cliffs up to 180 meters high, waterfalls, lakes, subterranean tunnels and a 50 meters high waterfall Great Gubavica.
The guide will give you a life-jacket, a helmet, neoprene suit and jacket and the small expedition is ready to set off.
The sound of the river becomes louder as you descend into the canyon. Ten minutes later you will find yourself in the middle of the Cetina canyon. Walking through the river and the rapids, going through the subterranean tunnels, swimming in natural pools, going around waterfalls and lakes - all this is canyoning.
