Activity description

Spend three hours on an unforgettable excursion in the Cetina canyon starting from Slime!

Along with their experienced skippers and all the necessary downhill equipment, you will spend three hours on an unforgettable excursion to the Cetina canyon. All of the skippers have successfully mastered the education and training program for adventure enthusiasts in nature with authorized HGSS instructors. Throughout the descent, guests are accompanied by a professional photographer, and the CD with pictures can be picked up after the activity. Vir Rafting's goal is for clients to be happy, to do so, the groups are kept small so the guides can devote to each guest and make your stay in Cetina as pleasant as possible.

Rafting starts along the edge of the river, where way too long skippers and hosts meet with the guests, and captains briefly explain how to behave out on the river.  The ride from Omis to the beginning of Slime takes about 25 minutes and during this time you will be thrilled by the beautiful canyon of the Cetina River as well as the greenery of this area.

After a 5-6 minute drive, you will arrive at the "Radmanova Mlinice" excursion site which will be within hours of the end of your adventure. The road continues further on with a winding drive through the beautiful green forest, you'll spot the river in Cetina canyon. After the leisurely ride through the village of Omis Hinterland, we come to the starting place of the river rafting adventure.

At the start, guests are welcomed by friendly offering aperitifs, cakes, fruits and coffee. After that, the guests get acquainted with the skipper and the photographer and are divided into rafts with brief instructions (basic rowing motions). The first part is not so fast but nature is beautiful, the river is stunning and overflowing with flora and fauna.

You will pass through two tunnels which lead to a more technical and demanding part of the river, so you have to listen to the skipper very carefully. Arriving at a small lake, you will stop for 5-10 minutes so you can take a refreshing dip and cool down. The next place you stop is a small dam where you can taste pure water. You will come under the foot of the Studenci, one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the river Cetina. Here, as well as during the whole adventure you will be photographed by a professional photographer who will offer you pictures on a CD when the activity finishes. 

"Studenci" is a spectacular view! At the very end of your adventure a beautiful but delicate fast rapid "Oblačnik" follows. At the beginning of the rapids, everyone must leave the rafts for the next 50 meters to walk along the coast, and from the rocks, you have a chance to see how the skipper goes through the rapids.

By leaving the rapids, the skipper connects the raft along the coast so you can enter and resume the adventure again.

Another 25 minutes and a few rapids will bring you to the end of your rafting adventure at the Radman Mill. You can leave all the equipment (helmets, paddles, belts),  it'll be brought back afterwards to shore.

Cudowny relaks i trochę emocji, rewelacja piękne widoki. Nie zmęczycie się, ale zmoczycie, po drodze można się kąpać, przeplynac w 9 stopniowej wodzie w jaskini i powspinac się po skałach i poskakac do wody. . Przewodnicy pomagają, więc nie jest trudno, świetna przygoda warta tych pieniędzy jest poczęstunek. Warto miec gotówkę na zakup cudownych zdjęć i własnych wyrobów, także po drodze. Dziekujemy, team from Poland pozdrawia Ante!

Activités très agréable et encadrement et accueil top

Il ne faut pas s attendre au grand frisson. La rivière ne s'y prête pas mais le cadre est très beau, pas de pollution, de déchets. On passe un très bon moment. Le guide nous a proposé une option qui est de passer par une grotte au lieu de contourner en marchant la zone dangereuse en bateau. Il faut sauter dans une eau à moins de 10 degré mais on est bien récompensé par un joli moment.
