      Amazing day on the river!
      The tour was amazing. For beginners it’s a bit challenging, but our tour guides were AMAZING. They helped us every time we got stuck and directed us on how to manage the waterfalls safely. My family truly enjoyed. This tour was the highlight of our week in Croatia!

      really great!
      We went as a family of 4 with a 6 year old and it was awesome. I was a little worried because i never went on kanoes before and i think it would be better if i had a bit more expirience but it was nice. the first part was easy. on the first waterfall the route around it was a little hard to walk in crocs, so i advice better shoewear. the rapids in the second part were a little harder to manage, but overall it was really fun, and id only reccommend it. at the end theres a bar and changing rooms. the guides (fabian and lara) were really nice, and even tho me and my mother were always behind they waited for us. i had a positive expirience.

      Fun rafting experience, definitely recommend
      What an absolutely incredible experience. I have been whitewater rafting plenty before and thought my trip was well worth the money. It was so much fun the whole way down. From relaxing while paddling down the river, to going off a a 3 meter waterfall. Huge thank you to our tour guides, DiDi and Matej. They both did an amazing job keeping it fun, professional, organized, and gave lots of interesting history and funny commentary along the way. They were lovely to get to know. I definitely recommend this experience! :)

      Adventure (or just relaxation) awaits! Raftrek Korniti Islands multi day trip
      Four days / three nights on board and sailing around the Dalmation islands (Korniti National Park, Croatia). First proper holiday in several years. What an absolute treat. The giddiness of first getting on board to feeling like a pirate, explorer and adventurer. Then the reality sets in and it is just relaxation, enjoyment and faciliating mini adventures. Six of us boarded and were impressed from the start. Being tall, I feared being trapped in the bedroom or bathroom or anywhere inside but was very pleasantly surprised to see I could stand upright in about 85% of the inside areas of the boat! Our skipper Stjepan guided us with cool calmness that only comes with years of experience. Vana looked after us on board with a smile and warm welcome. Both provided insightful commentary but never felt intrusive which was fantastic. Both obviously know the area very well and were excellent tour guides and hosts. We were blessed with the weather and cannot fault anything of the trip. We swam so many times they all blurred into one. SUP was an interesting take on being pirates and exploring the coves and bays we stopped in. The local restaurants we ate at each evening were excellent. Nothing too fancy or overpriced - good hearty meals with local influences and excellent quality / taste. Highly recommend doing the end of season as the vast emptiness we got to experience would probably be a lot busier - we liked not having too many people around :-)

      Incredible Experience with Amazing Tour Guides
      Enjoyed blissful weather and no winds with an incredible kayak along the river and through the canyon. Special shout out to two amazing tour guides (on 4/9/22) who took us off the river to swim and dive in an amazing waterfall and jump off 6m cliffs with all round good chat. Highly highly recommend for a really really amazing day!! Highlight of trip

      Truly exceptional experience
      From being collected from the airport to drop off we could not fault the experience. We have always enjoyed using local providers over dealing with generally ill informed agents in the uk and Raftrek appeared to offer a great mix of activities with locals at the forefront of giving you a taste of this beautiful country. The accommodation and meals in Skradin was perfectly acceptable with good service, and all our activities superbly organised. We were introduced to our guide Vana on the first evening and she stayed with us for the duration of our trip, she was an absolute joy to spend time with, as were all the other members of the Raftrek team. Vana proved to be extremely knowledgeable on all of the activities she led us on, Trekking, Kayaking and Cycling with the patience to manage our varying degrees of fitness , and she made everything we did and visited truly memorable. On joining the Tom Sayer Stephan proved to be a superb skipper and treated us to 3 spectacular days of relaxation and water based activities in the most stunning and beautiful surroundings. We really cannot recommend using Raftrek enough. All we can say is our experience was faultless without being overly "polished" and every person we met just added to the enjoyment with their willingness to make every guests have the best possible experience.

      Great nature and perfect setting for kayaking. Beautiful rapids and small waterfalls. Unfortunately too many people/ group (> 10, 2 p kayaks) and way too many groups at the same time on the water. Smoking was also allowed during the breaks!!!! 🤬 so forget enjoying clear air... Please limit the number of people!!!and forbid smoking

      Beautiful experience
      The experience was amazing! Perfect organisation, kindness, availability. We arrived late due to a scooter problem, they were waiting for us. Everything was explained in details. Landscape is awfully wild and peaceful. The two guys helps people in the difficult point of the ride. There are stops to rest and in the end you can change wet cloths in a locker rooms. A transfer brings you back. In the way back we had (again) a problem with the scooter and we will never stop thanking the guy of the organisation. They were so kind to help us. Unfortunately we don’t remember names. Thank you so much!

      Kornati 4 Day Catamaran Trip
      We had an amazing time during our 4 day trip around the Kornati islands. Our skippers, Luca and Mate were awesome and very helpful. What makes this trip really unique is that the itinerary never felt rushed and there is plenty of time to swim, sunbathe, enjoy the boat, and explore the places we docked. The skippers took us to some really nice places to swim that were pretty secluded. The places we stopped in the evening to dock and have dinner were really special and had great views and food. The trip overall was definitely one of the highlights of my Croatia vacation. One small comment, you do need cash to pay for the dinners which is of course totally fine, however the average prices they noted on the website for what things would cost was really not accurate and we ended up spending quite a bit more and needing to take out more cash. All worth it, but just something to be aware of.

      3.5. A nice day out but massive groups spoilt it.
      A beautiful day out, but spoilt by the size and number of groups, and the fairly disinterested guides. I would say you have to be reasonably fit to do this if you’re taking a child, as the last part is a bit of a slog against the wind. We did enjoy most of it, but the bad points were: Some of the group were drinking beer continually from the start of the day, not great for the children to see them getting drunk so early in the day, and then were colliding with us going down the rapids. At one point we ended up stuck across the river with a boat on top of us (and on top of my wrist!) as they had come down straight behind us, which was dangerous. The group was so big we were bouncing each other down the river and it was hard work to keep out of the others way (especially the drunk ones). The guides didn’t seem bothered. Minimal interaction from them, although they were very good at helping you down the rapids. The big waterfall halfway down looked beautiful but we unfortunately didn’t get to stop to have even a brief look as there were so many other people on the river. There was no rock jumping, but we did get a swim at lunchtime. At the end we finished in a shabby smelly shack of a cafe where we had to wait ages for the drivers to go and pick up the car - not the nice cafe with a beach by the river that the guide promised. The usual format where you drop your car off at the end point is much better. All in all we had a nice day as the river is very beautiful, but the commercialism of the size of the group left a bad feeling. Maybe would try a different operator next time (especially one that finished with your car). Would give it 3.5 if I could.

      A Hidden Gem of the Zadar Region
      One of the highlights of our trip to Zadar and my numerous trips to Croatia. The Zrmanja River is a hidden gem, and kayaking is a great way to experience it. Raftrek's organization was superb--they separated the various groups immediately and gave an efficient overview of the excursion and how to paddle before setting off. The trip itself was fantastic. It was fun, safe, and full of sublime scenery. We enjoyed dropping down small waterfalls and swimming in the crystal-clear river. The guides worked hard to help everyone navigate their kayaks.

      This was a great trip for me and my friends. We were on rafting down the Mrežnica river. Our skipper Tin J. was very fun and interesting, yet very proffesional.

    The journey is well organized and if it is your first time, the guides takes time to explain how to paddle with your kayak. We left the starting point around 10 am and finished the kayak at 2:30 pm. We were a group of 12 kayaks plus 2 guides who accompany the group from the beginning to the end. Perfect excursion for a family. Very slow current, easy to paddle on the river and we often wait for every one. If you like when you can stop at any time, go to your speed, it would be not like this. All the group follow each other on the river and for the lunch time, we spend only 30 min to eat, because we had to let the other group take our place for example. At the end of the experience, only one person of each pair (the driver) is allowed to go back to the car. The other one have to wait until the pair comes back. Finally, we have really appreciated the guides and have enjoyed the day, but from our point of view it is a little expensive for what it is.

    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to write this detailed review. I suppose you were either with another company on the trip, or on another location, as our groups are up to 8 kayaks per departure, and we take all guests from our base to the river, and after the trip back to our base. We are glad that you had fun on the trip and hope to see you with us another time :) Kind regards!

    It is a amazing trip. I had an unforgetable memory of jumping into water from 8m high waterfall. However, it is still very safe and thrilling. Our guide Bastian is a very nice and professional guy, who made this trip wonderful and enjoyable.

    This is probably the best kayak trip you can go on in Europe. You get to kayak down loads of amazing waterfalls. In fact, this is white water kayaking. BRILLIANT FUN! We were with people who had never kayaked before but it didn't matter because Ugene and Marco keep them (and everyone else) very safe. Fantastic fun. Highlight of our trip - thank you 😁

    Many little small falls to kayak down, although the tour guide would prepare you from behind and push you down each of them so no experience needed really. Almost impossible to capsize despite the rapids.

    There is a waterfall with 5 m and 9 m jump which you can take, I did the 9 m twice but some people chose to climb down on the side as they weren't so keen.

    It was just as well we had a car to drive to a small village where the starting point of the tour takes place. Not sure if we didn't have a car, how we'd get there.

    We arranged this Kayaking tour through the staff at our accommodation in Etno Gardens (thanks).
    As we didn't have a car, someone came to pick us up which was really going the extra mile. The day was so much fun with great guides - Marco and Gregor (sorry if I spelled it wrong), beautiful scenery and an all around great atmosphere.
    You don't have to have previous experience to do the kayaking which was great....and if you are experienced I think it would still be brilliant bit maybe you'd spend less time kayaking in a circle than we did :D
    I would love to go again and would really recommend this trip to everyone!
