White water rafting in the Cetina Valley near Split.
Adventure sports enthusiasts should head for the Cetina Valley, a dramatic high-sided rocky canyon, which meets the sea at Omiš, 25km southeast of Split. Here the River Cetina flows over a series of light to moderate rapids, making it ideal for rafting. Active Holidays organise rafting trips lasting around three hours, with up to eight people sharing a raft under the guidance of an expert. The minimum age is seven years old, no special skills required, though participants should be in good health. A lifejacket, helmet and oars are supplied, plus neoprene dry suits when the water is very cold. Rafting trips conclude with a meal at Radmanove Mlinice, set in woodland next to the river. It’s also possible to try canyoning, canoeing and free climbing.
