Sunday: Cetina river and LED Night Tour

You’ll meet your host at 09:30 in the town center of Split and head to your base at Camping Stobreč. Get settled and prepare for your two-day challenge before being transferred to the starting point of this adventure in the beautiful city of Omiš (30-minute drive). This SUP challenge on Cetina river starts in the beautiful town of Omiš that was once a pirate town. The town scenery is a unique combination of sea, river and huge mountain range. We will stop at the small beautiful river resort called Radmanove Mlinice where you will be introduced with the equipment and get ready for river paddling. It is a hidden place where natives take bath in the river. Gliding down, the river is relaxing and paddling effortless. At the beginning the canyon is narrow and the river is faster but soon you will be surrounded by huge mountains and untouched nature. We will make a couple of stops down the canyon where you can just relax and enjoy the scenery or engage in some refreshing river swimming. Coming down the end of the canyon, the city of Omiš soon reveals itself for the end of the tour. We will make our final stop where the river meets the sea on the beautiful sandy beach. Here you can park your board and enjoy a nice swim while we get ready to head back to the campsite. At the campsite, you will have some free time to relax, have some lunch and explore the beach before the evening paddle.

Setting off around sunset you will paddle the Dalmatian waters by moonlight… and LED light. That’s right, as if SUP boarding wasn’t awesome enough, on this trip, your board will be equipped with underside LED lighting; now you will see everything around and beneath you while paddling.

You’ll head out on the quiet calm water as the day comes to a close, giving you an amazing view of a stunning sunset. Then, as the moon takes its place, the light show begins; the LED lighting on your board will attract small fish and jellyfish around you. It’s like snorkeling without getting into the water.

Paddling along the river and on to the sea, you will see the white rocks and cliffs in which natives have built their traditional houses. Admire the busily lit shores as you stand amidst the quiet and calm of nature.

After a 3km paddle, you’ll head back to camp for a good night’s rest.

Cetina river - 5km paddle, Night trip - 3km paddle

5km paddle

When you arrive, the water will be waiting for you; peacefully calm. Grab your SUP board for a morning of paddling, which will take you on a tour circumnavigating around the base of this inactive volcano.

As you paddle the still waters, you’ll hear nothing but crickets and birds; the sun will peek through the trees of the protected Marjan forest park, creating a light show of colors on the water’s surface.

You’ll have a number of stop-offs on this paddle including the oldest beach, Bene, the beautiful Kašuni beach, and the impressive cliffs of Sustipan, to name a few. Of course, these places offer some amazing photo opportunities but there’s also the chance to try some cliff jumping, or explore the sea with a snorkel.

Once you have circumnavigated the wondrous Marjan Hill, you will drive to Split town center for lunch to enjoy local traditional dishes at restaurant Fife. Here the 2-day challenge comes to an end.

Please Note

All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.

You will stay in Cabin at a Campsite at Camping Stobreč. The accommodation is comfortable and will sleep two or four people. Each cabin is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, satellite TV, air conditioning, and a lovely terrace. Bed linen and one small towel per person will be provided.

Camping Stobreč is situated within a green oasis, surrounded by the sea on two sides and the Žrnovnica river mouth on the third.

The site has a small restaurant, pool and massage service within its grounds.

Split sits on Croatia’s Southern Dalmatian coast and is a town known for its beaches. Southern Dalmatia offers one of Europe’s most dramatic shorelines, as the coastal mountains sweep down to the lush coastline of palm trees and olive plantations. This trip gives you a unique perspective of this breathtaking coastline from the glistening Dalmatian waters.
