Cetina River, Split

The Basics

Travelers based in Split can escape the city for a day and try adrenaline-fueled activities at the Cetina River. Join a white-water rafting trip that traverses Class II and Class III rapids, as well as floating along stretches of scenic Croatian countryside. Alternatively, go canyoning with a guide, navigating your way along the river to reach waterfalls and natural pools. For travelers who would rather stay dry, consider ziplining across the river for a whole new perspective on the rapids below.

Cetina River Rafting Adventure from Split
Very safe and fun trip down the Cetina River in first week of September, Not enough flow for full-size rafts, more more then three-seater raft/kayak (as pictured). Guides were very knowledgable and good briefing explaining the trip at the start. Took a break half-way, and chance to jump in the very clean, cool, fresh water. Definitely a thing to do when in Split.

How to Get There

The Cetina River empties into the Adriatic Sea at Omiš, about 16 miles (26 kilometers) east of Split, though most rafting tours take place farther upriver at towns such as Penšići. As public transport in this area is minimal, it’s best to go by organized tour.

Velika Gubavica Waterfall

Many canyoning tours along the Cetina River stop at the 160-foot-high (50-meter-high) Velika Gubavica waterfall. This scenic cascade, situated in the Cetina River canyon, offers the chance for visitors to rappel, cliff jump, and hike in the lush surrounds. Even for adrenaline-averse travelers, the waterfall is worth a visit, if only to admire its picturesque appearance.
