Canyoning – or canyoneering in some countries – is an exciting way of using various sporting activities while navigating through a canyon. It can include hiking, swimming, abseiling or rappelling, cliff jumping, negotiating river rapids and waterfalls, climbing over boulders and other rocky ancient river terrain. The best and most rewarding canyoning is done in remote and rugged settings, and often employs map reading and other outdoor skills. Canyoning Croatia is considered as one of the best canyoning in Europe.
Our landscape has been formed by water cutting into the river bedrock over thousands of years. Rivers can form canyons in many different types of rock, the abrasive water slicing through sandstone, granite, grit stone and limestone. The latter being the most common in Croatia.
The canyoning Croatia company was founded by a group of people with a shared passion for canyoning, outdoor adventure, and exploring new places. Our guides organise and run the company so that we can involve our guests in the best possible way.
Our key motivation is to push limits and taste the adrenaline. More than ever we pursue being best of the best because we want to share our experiences and unique lifestyle with others who have the same goals and aspirations. We have brought the canyoning Croatia tours on the River Cetina to an entirely new level, by incorporating all our canyon experience, from both here and abroad.
The Cetina is especially famous for its crystal clear waters. It provides the drinking supply for people and waters the crops. Along the river there is no industry, nor major towns or cities, so the river environment is largely secure.

We were on sail Croatia and booked canyoning through them, which was in Makarska. Guide was brilliant - enthusiastic, fun and safe, he made the whole trip excellent. The canyoning itself was incredible, my new favorite activity. Would recommend Canyoning Croatia over and over again!
To begin, I must say, I have traveled far and wide. I have seldom experienced anything that can compare to dramatic beauty and fun you can have in the Cetina canyon. Today I got to climb down the canyon under competent guidance, sliding down the rapids in protective equippment, being told it where I can jump in, it was so much fun. Sure, there are quite a few tours running in the warm months and you can not have the canyon to yourself, but it felt safe, the guides were fun and I would recomend it.
What a great adventure for our group of 7 women ages 53-62 years old. This is the best canyoning company. Guide was excellent, providing a safe experience and a great adventure. The scenery and the canyon are spectacular We loved the physical challenge and even the cliff jumping (optional). This is quite physical (wear good shoes) but the fantastic guides will help. Highly recommended.
My girlfriend and me had a very nice time during our canyoning trip. Our guides were entertaining, caring and looked good after our safety. We noticed immediately that they were very experience in what they were doing. It was one of our greatest times in Croatia.
My friend and I did the canyoning trip in Cetina river and we loved it! The canyon and the water are beautiful. I has so much fun in the river and cliff jumping 🙂 The waterfalls are breathtaking. Our guide was so kind and attentive to us, we felt we were in safe hands with him 🙂 Also he is very funny and we had a wonderful time with hum. I would definitely do that experience again and recommend it to anyone!
It is a high level hike, followed by hiking through the water, which adds resistence and takes a lot our of you. The jumps were great and the rappel wonderful. The guides really tended to me, as I really needed help. If you are super fit and athletic, you cannot go wrong. Otherwise, stick with somethink else they offer. It was beauitiful though.
The scenery is nothing short of breath taking. You travel down Croatia's version of the Grand Canyon. Rapids, plunge pools massive waterfalls. It's ace. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Split area. A great days adrenaline filled fun. A special mention to Marko who not only spoke amazing English, spent time to get to know us, made us laugh and entertained us with some acrobatics. Superb.
Spent the day with the team taking part in 'extreme canyoning'. The guides were fantastic and ensured that we had all we need to make the most of the day. Coming through the canyon was an experience I'll never forget with amazing beauty throughout. The 80ft abseil and 10m jump into water is highly recommended. Next time I'm near Split, I'll be taking my friends and family!!
We were a family of 6, inc a 9yo. We had an amazing day with the basic canyoning tour. Quite physical actually, including 9 meter high jump (you can bypass). They secure everything and you really feel in good hands. Folks are helpful, relax and joyful but always professional and super kind with the kids.
I did the Extreme Canyoning tour while visiting Split Croatia and loved it! The walk down to the river may have been the most nerve wracking part (it is a rocky steep descent). The canyon itself is beautiful! I would recommend doing the "extreme" version of the canyoning as it includes a couple of great repels, which I found to be well worth it! This activity left me feeling happy and accomplished.
I went canyoning with sail croatia in May and I had no idea what it was or what to expect but it was amazing! It was so much fun and quite a long excursion. The guides were very knowledgable and helpful, all the equipment was provided. It was worth the money and I would recommend Canyoning Croatia to everyone!
