In some part very good for relaxation in some part you can enjoy rafting, canyoing. In the city center you can seat on the bank or in restaurants. There are also few camp sites.

One of the best places for pure, wild and safe rafting experience. Local experts are more than professionals. The nature (around 9 km route) is amazing.

Vrbas is beautiful and cold river. Vrbas is cold even during summer months. Great for white water rafting. Vrbas's canyon is also breathtaking

Vrbas River is the bigest fortune of Banja Luka city. Great for walk nearby the river, have nice restaurants and bars nearby, great for fishing as well. If you go upper out of town, water is cristal clear and beautifull for cayak, rafting, swiming, fishing. One thing is for sure, without Vrbas river this town wouldn't exist.
