This canoeing trip is an expedition down the magnificent Wild West-like canyons of the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers, which are a part of Velebit Nature Park. Perfectly clear and green waters, rapids and waterfalls, hidden swimming pools and steep sided canyons will steal your heart and make this journey an unforgettable experience. We will paddle down these beautiful rivers until we reach the Adriatic Sea in Novigrad Bay. Novigrad is a small quiet fishermen village, perfect to get away from big summer crowds, relax on the beach and explore the bay by sea kayaking. The last day is reserved for the activities of your choice; you can either relax on the beach or choose between several optional trips.
