After the adrenaline rush, transfer to the heart of the pristine Velebit Nature Park and set up camp by the Zrmanja River in Kastel Zegarski.

Awaken to the soothing sounds of the river and fuel up with a locally-sourced, homemade breakfast. Then, embark on a full day of packrafting, navigating through the stunning Zrmanja River. Pause for a swim beneath a secluded waterfall, before testing your paddling skills on exhilarating rapids and cascading waterfalls. At the day’s end, relax back at camp and savor a traditional dinner.
Bask in the songs of birds as you enjoy your final riverside breakfast. If time permits, seize the opportunity for one last dip in the river or a leisurely stroll through the surrounding wilderness.
