Canyoning or canyoneering in some countries is an exciting way of using various sporting activities while navigating through a canyon. Canyoning Croatia 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. To sum up the latter being is 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. 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.
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.
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.

Did the extreme canyoning namely with Iris Adventure. The two main guides Daudo and Marin were very knowledgeable and helpful the whole trip. Also we felt very safe doing all the activities. The sights were nice and water was clear. I would recommend Canyoning Croatia and the trip itself.
My partner and I had a great experience with Iris Adventures last week. We joined them for their extreme canyoning adventure. He and I were part of a group of about 14 people which were equally split between couples and groups of friends. They prepared us for the day with a thorough tutorial which eased our minds given that we had never been canyoning before. The actual event offered spectacular views of the canyon, the river, and several waterfalls.
What a wonderful team to spend a day together with. Lots of help including humour and support. Incredibly well organised, managing such a large group of people in smaller teams, with qualified guides from all parts of Europe. I would not hesitate to do this again or recommend it to others. But be fit because it is demanding.
I went canyoning with a couple of friends on Cetina river with Iris adventures. All of a sudden it was best spent morning ever. Our guide Toni showed us every possible spot, rock, place to jump alongside the river while still having time to enjoy the views. I give high 5 to Canyoning Croatia organization in general. Suits are clean and helmets are new. I felt secure the whole time but still had that positive adrenalin rush 🙂 . Therefore it is worth every penny.
The journey in the Cetina canyon surprisingly was one of the funniest thing I have ever done in my life. The sightseeing was beautiful and we had a lot of sensations. Adrenaline too when we jumped from 10 meters rocks and going down the cliffs (55meters) with ropes and so on. Guides are real entertaining pro in every aspects: instructions, knowledge of the field, hot spots and so on... It was quite an experience and definitely worth the money.
We were on sail Croatia and booked canyoning through them which was in Makarska. Guide was brilliant, enthusiastic, fun, safe moreover he made the whole trip excellent. The canyoning itself was incredible therefore new favorite activity. Would recommend Canyoning Croatia over and over again!
To begin with review, 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. surely, 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. Accordingly the best canyoning Croatia 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 which is optional. This is quite physical (wear good shoes) but the fantastic guides will help. That is to say 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 while we were 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 had so much fun in the river and cliff jumping 🙂 . The waterfalls are surely 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 him. I would definitely do that experience again and recommend canyoning Croatia to anyone!
It is a high level hike, followed by hiking through the water which adds resistence and takes a lot out of you. The jumps were great and the rappel wonderful. The guides really tended to me, as much 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 nevertheless.
In short the scenery is breath taking. Like you explore Croatia's version of the Grand Canyon. Rapids together with plunge pools massive waterfalls. For this reason I would recommend Canyoning Croatia to anyone visiting the Split area. Particularly great day with adrenaline filled fun. A special mention to Marko our guide who not only spoke amazing English, spent time to get to know us but also made us laugh and entertained us with some acrobatics.
Spent the day together with the team taking part in extreme canyoning with Canyoning Croatia. 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 and with amazing beauty throughout. The 80ft abseil and 10m jump into water is highly recommended. Not to mentionn next time I'm near Split, I'll be taking my friends and family!!
We were a family of 6, including a 9yo. We had an truly amazing day with the basic canyoning tour. Quite physical actually, including 9 meter high jump which 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 indeed beautiful! I would recommend doing the "extreme" version of the canyoning moreover it includes a couple of great repels. Furthermore I found to be well worth it! To point out 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. Also all the equipment was provided. It was worth the money and I would recommend Canyoning Croatia to everyone!
