Blinded by the beauty and tranquility of the Adriatic Sea and life on the coast, there aren't many of those who are adventurous and willing enough to explore the other side of Croatia. Its wilderness and large parts of intact nature would leave anyone speechless. Undeniably, one of the examples of such place would be the Cetina River located in the Dalmatian hinterland.
Cetina is rising from the spring placed on the north-western side of Dinara range, near the small village of Cetina. On the upper part of the river a large artificial lake of Peruća has been created. Flowing further, it passes through the Sinj karst field, through the cities Sinj and Trilj, bypassing Mosor Mountain and finishing its journey into the Adriatic in the city of Omiš. The lower part begins at the Gubavica Falls, near the village Zadvarje where the landscape changes from canyon to valley. Following Cetina River from its spring to mouth, your breath would be taken by its impressively beautiful scenery: various flora and fauna, amazing waterfalls, caves and karst cliffs.
One of the best ways to closely meet Cetina is through rafting. Are you feeling courageous and do you want to experience Dalmatia differently than just sitting near the sea in Makarska and strolling around the town then you should try rafting on Cetina! Having no previous experience is not a problem since you will have a trained guide with you. Just bring a swimming suite with you and prepare yourself for an unforgettable adventure on the rapids of river Cetina.
Staying in Makarska you should easily access any part of the lower flow of the river since it is less than an hour driving distance. On your way to the river and your rafting adventure, you can expect to see some interesting places like the town of Omiš on the very mouth of the Cetina or Radman’s mill. Try something else than just a lazy vacation on the coast and book your Cetina rafting tour!
