“Deep water solo and canyoning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I was part of a group of 8 who did the deep water solo on one day followed by canyoning the next day. Most of us had done either before but would completely recommend both activities. The deep water solo consisted of being taken out by boat to some of the cliffs around Split and climbing up and out before jumping from as high as you could. this was brilliant fun and very relaxed as whenever you got tired you can climb back on the boat or spend time swimming or just pick a high spot on the cliff and soak up the amazing scenery.
the canyoning was also amazing and well described in some of the other reviews on this website, with a mixture of scrambling, floating, jumping, abseiling, zip wires you spend a full day working your way down the river canyon, which is amazingly beautiful.
The professionalism of Daniel, Marin and the rest of the guides was fantastic and made both events run perfectly. Fully recommend Avantura and their staff.

“Unbelievable - become Bear Grylls for a day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

My girlfriend and I with my two friends (another couple) had an amazing time adventure (extreme) canyoning. This package (60 euro) was excellent, as it included use of all necessary equipment and knowledge of three guides, who brought us down through the beautiful canyon, while taking photos/videos of the group, swimming through small rapids and climbing. The highlight of this experience has to be walking through a dark tunnel in the canyon to come to an opening in the cliff face, then rappelling down the 140 ft cliff face beside a waterfall, then crossing a stream to do the 140 ft zip line, what an rush. As it rained for 5 min on the day, we did not get to do second rappel but would definitely do it again as it is a lot of fun. Next year going back to do the rock climbing and deep water soloing in Split. They have a great website, very easy to organise, Daniel is really helpful and the guides were really cool, thanks

“Canyoning with Avantura”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

My wife and I had a fantastic day canyoning with the Avantura crew on the refreshing and clean Cetina River. The photos on the website are great, but even these pictures do not do justice to the beautiful scenery experienced inside the canyon. The longer repel is extreme (again, photos cannot do justice to actually experiencing the repel) but an absolute blast! You will be happy that you completed the obstacle. The zip line is also a very unique and fun experience. It is obvious that safety is Avantura's number one priority. We decided to travel to Split for the opportunity to go canyoning and we are so happy we included this adventure on our itinerary.

I would suggest arranging a ride with Daniel or one of the other guides if possible. Daniel gave us a really great rate (next to nothing!) and provided great conversation. The whole Avantura crew is fun, friendly, and very professional. They even offered to take us to eat Cevapcici after we finished our canyoning tour--wish we had time to join them for dinner, such a great bunch!

Thank you again, Avantura!

“Climbing day at Omis - great scenery, great routes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

My girlfriend and I had a great time climbing in Omis. Daniel was a great guide, taking into account our experience and skill level. He also told us about the history of climbing in Croatia, which was very interesting. The routes were really good, and as we haven't been climbing much on limestone, it was a whole new experience. Daniel gave some good tips on how to improve our climbing, and was very supportive also. Overall the experience was great!

I genuinely would recommend Daniel for any kind of climbing activities.

“Huge thanks - great team, great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Encouraged by the other reviews here we joined Daniel for a day in the canyon and had a great time; perfect mixture of adventure and safety. The following day - too cold for deep water soloing - Daniel took my son (11y) and I for a great session of sport climbing. Nice rock, nice scenery, excellent folk.
Strongly recommended
