To reach the upper canyon of Mreznica between Primislje and Trzic, the most beautiful part of the river right in the wilderness, you need a little more effort. The adventure takes us through a gorge so narrow and deep that the sun enters for only a few hours each day, around noon, creating spectacular light effects. We will bypass cliffs of carved white rocks, lush vegetation and cascading waterfalls, strong freshwater springs and pools of water which are great for swimming in summer. The second highest waterfall on the Mreznica (8m) is a magical place ideal for swimming and a picnic.
No previous kayaking experience is needed even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate. We use two-person sit-on-top kayaks with optional child seat which are easy and safe to navigate. You will get a life jacket and a paddle, plus long neoprene suit & rain jacket in case of cold weather. Waterproof containers are available for personal items (camera drinks, etc.). Shorts or bathing suit, T-shirt and sandals (or sport shoes) is all you need to wear on the river. Don’t forget your towel, sun cream, water and picnic.
