After breakfast, you'll get ready for a day of paddling, swimming, jumping off waterfalls and enjoying the wildlife from the river.
The day starts off with a nice and easy section of the river to help you get used to the kayak. You'll then take a short hike to an 8m waterfall for lunch - It's a really cool spot with great views of the limestone canyons and lush, green vegetation.
In the afternoon you'll paddle down some more challenging rapids to your campsite on the river bank - don't worry, the rapids are suitable for beginners.
After another hearty breakfast, you'll continue down the river, all the way to the Adriatic Sea. The journey meanders through a spectacular deep canyon, through the Velebit National Park. After this long but beautiful day on the river, you'll finish up in Novigrad where you'll have time to change into dry clothes and relax while having lunch.
After lunch, you'll head back to Zadar, where your adventure will come to an end. You'll be dropped back off at Zadar airport at 4:30 pm, or Zadar bus station at 5 pm.
