Teeter over the edge of Čikola Canyon on this via ferrata course near Split.
Dangle close to one of Croatia’s most dangerous canyon systems on this via ferrata course across the infamous Čikola ravine. A raging whitewater river that cuts through the bedrock on its race to meet the sea, clip in and travel across this impressive landscape as you navigate sheer cliffs, dramatic cascades and thundering currents.
Čikola Canyon is located on the outskirts of Krka National Park. Čikola Canyon stretches from Drniš to the mouth of the Krka River above Skradinski buk (Skradinski waterfall). Named after its namesake river, Čikola and Krka National Park are 1h 30 from central Split and 1h from Zadar.
Meet your mountain guide in Split for this via ferrata excursion to Čikola Canyon. A full day adventure in Krka National Park, start your day with a short safety briefing at kit check before you walk from Bašići to the start of the course along the Čikola River. A 3km trail suited to adventurous beginners and anyone with previous climbing experience, clip in and follow your guide along the canyon wall – dangling over the raging river and ascending 70m for amazing views over the park. During the climb, you will use the traditional ‘iron road’ to climb horizontally along the ravine – safely clipped into a guideline and using the fixed pegs to guide you. Once you reach the top, they’ll be time to soak in the views before you return to the town and catch your shuttle back to Split.
The Čikola River Canyon runs for 13km from the end of Petrovo Field to the border of National Park "Krka”. A dramatic seasonal canyon with a depth of 130m, during the winter a fast karst river flows and during summer the canyon is completely dry. A demanding yet accessible course, the total duration in the canyon is 3 hours – with a transfer drive time of 1h 30 each way. Due to the rural location of the activity, self-drive is not recommended.
