“Kayak safari on Mrežnica River - best activity after Plitvice Lakes”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

If you are staying in the Plitvice lakes area of Croatia and you only have time to do one other activity - the kayak safari on the Mreznica River is undoubtable the best day out. We booked with the Tour office based in reception at the Mirjana - Rastoke hotel. It is about 30 kms North/ West of Plitvice along the main road. The trip starts at 10am and lasts about 4 hours. The cost is 250 Kuna each including a 3 course meal with the biggest lunch platter of freshly roasted meats ( eg pig on a spit) I have ever seen.
The kayaking was perfect - it had exactly the right dosage of adrenaline - enough to keep the whole group eagerly anticipating what was in store at the next rapid, but not too much to scare us half to death! About 12 people in the group and English speaking native Croatia guide. Plenty of stops for 'jumping' and photos. It was the best kayaking tour we have ever done - really fun, exciting ....exhilarating even and great value for money. If a wetsuit is offered - wear it because the water temperature drops rapidly about half way down the river. Kayaks are very stable and I don't think any of our group flipped out. The river water was crystal clear and passed through beautiful canyons and uninhabited woods. There were about 10 waterfalls and we crossed all of them in the kayak - with a bit of help and a push from our experienced guide - except one which was about 8 metres high and you could either jump or walk around. Shoes and helmet are provided - just bring some water and enjoy!!

Go swimming in this absolutely beautiful clean river... Perfect to spend a whole day by the river with friends/family, you can have a barbecue, pitch a tent. Go for a swim and lunch in Zeleni Kut or Mrežnička kuća DP. Go camping at Camp Slapic (place: Mreznicki brig) which is a wonderful spot and has amazing (cheap but delicious) food! Slapic is perfect for almost anything - swimming, hanging out, walking, you name it. You can rent a canoe or go rafting on the river as well. Whatever you decide to do, you'll have fun and fall in love with this marvellous river. It is a beauty!

“beautifull river Mreznica”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

in fact, it's all about the nature. the stunning Mreznica river with small waterfalls, the green scenery that surrounds it.... makes all places along the river something special, something worth living.
i agree with Nikolina, summer is most atractive, 'cause you can spend all day outdoors, walking, kayaking, playing, or even swimming.
in DP restaurant i just took lunch. it was very delicius, domestic, old fashioned.... perfectly suits that region.
if you come, come for a whole day. I recommend to visit two more places and spent hour or two on each: "Zeleni kut" which is upstream and "Mrežnički brig" down stream.

“Can't believe that we (still) have such river”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

People who are tired of overcrowded beach at the seaside definitely should visit Mreznica river. It's possible to do it as a one day trip (cca 90 km from northern Adriatic resorts) We have rent a canoe in the Restaurant/hotel Zeleni kut (Zvecaj). They took us with a minivan approximately 10 km upstream and leave us there. Than our "descending" started. River is actually several lakes connected with a small waterfals which can be passed without rafting knowledge. The best thing is that river/lakes are beautifully green, clean and warm from June to August. Also you can get your own waterfall, lay down and have a private Jacuzzi as much as you want. After cca 3 hours of easy rowing and swimming you reach again Zeleni kut where you can get a decent meal.
Whole area is very well preserved with beautiful woods and old mills.
