Horse riding in Brnaze
Whether you are an experienced horseback rider or a pure beginner, the guided horseback riding tour through the Cetina region will be an absolute pleasure for you.
In addition to horseback riding, guests can also visit the hippodrome in the town of Sinj where, every year during the first weekend in August, the “Sinjska Alka” knight games take place as an homage dedicated to the victory over the Turks in 1715.
If you are a beginner you may choose to attend horseback riding school with calm, gentle training horses maintained by a professional instructor and breeder with more than thirty years of experience.
Rafting on River Cetina
Rafting is a sport in which the boat crew navigates along a specific portion of river current; for this trip, a 9km length of river through the Cetina River canyon which takes 3-4 hours. Each boat has its own guide who is responsible for the crew and manages the boat. All guides that manage our raft trips are members of the rafting club “Cetina” from Omiš (champions of Croatia). During the high season the air temperature reaches 30°C and the water temperature reaches 20°C, thus being fit for swimming, hydro massages and similar. Waves and rocks form Level 1 and II rapids along the river course which are easily managed with combined maneuvers and, since no specific physical capacity is required, children aged 10-14 years may also participate when accompanied by a parent. Guests will be greeted at the restaurant in Radmanove Mlinice, located 6km from Omiš along the left coast of the Cetina River, where transport will be organised to the starting position. At the beginning of the trip, the crew and the guide will be introduced and the necessary equipment (life jackets, helmets, paddles) will be assigned. The starting point of the river is calm and is used as the site where visitors can become familiar and comfortable with basic paddling skills in order to have a safe and enjoyable trip. The following part of the river is affluent with varying currents, obstacles, waterfalls and abundant vegetation which create natural tunnels, thus giving the impression of being far away from the civilization. During this section we will visit a beautiful cave that extends behind the waterfall “Studenci” and enjoy a light meal break. After such adventure, the final portion of the river returns to a calm float back to Radmanove Mlinice providing time to reflect on your journey through the Cetina’s phenomenal flora, fauna and karst landscape; a personal moment for consideration of the importance of river and nature preservation.
Visit to National Park Krka
Krka National Park, a spacious, largely unchanged region of exceptional and multifaceted natural value which includes a number of fully preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems, was proclaimed a national park in 1985 and is the seventh national park in Croatia. It is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational purposes as well as tourism activities such as visiting and sightseeing. Krka National Park is located entirely within the territory of Šibenik-Knin County and encompasses an area of 109km² along the Krka River, 2km downriver from Knin to Skradin and the lower part of the Čikola River. From the flooded part of the mouth the Krka River is 72.5km in length, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. With its seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop of 242m, the Krika River is a natural and karstic phenomenon.
Visit to Međugorje
In 1892 the Parish of Međugorje was established and placed under the protection of St. James, the patron saint of pilgrims; five years later, the building of the old parish church of St. James in Međugorje was complete. Upon completion it was both sufficiently large and beautiful but, being built on soft ground, it soon began to sink and crack. After World War I, plans were made to build a new church which was completed and blessed on January 19, 1969. At that time the church attracted no attention, not even from the people who lived in the nearby surroundings; however, the church of Međugorje became a major focal point for the gathering of millions of pilgrims from around the world in the summer of 1981. People began to come, see and be convinced of the extraordinary events in Međugorje. There they were greeted by a message about the necessity of faith, prayer, repentance and fasting as the preconditions of peace and salvation of the world. After the first apparition, the church and surrounding area was gradually developed while the remains of the old church were preserved in the park at the roundabout on the left side of the sanctuary. Međugorje is a unique event in the modern world and has attracted over 20 million pilgrims from around the globe over the past twenty years. Here they have found peace, their humanity and their connection with God as they become witnesses of truth, love and peace.
Canyoning is one of the newest adventure activities that offers exploration of phenomenal untouched nature while feeling the rush of adrenaline as you walk, jump, swim and climb through the increasing challenges of the canyon. On this unforgettable and unique adventure you will be accompanied by professional mountain climbing guides (members of “Marulianus”, the 1st Mountaineering Club of Croatia). Visitors are welcomed at Kraljevac, a power station located 23km upstream from Omiš along the left coast of the river and, from there, will proceed with organized transportation to the starting position. During the 4-6 hour canyoning tour you will explore the Cetina River canyon in the “Gubavica” waterfall area. The more adventurous can attempt to manouver the 60m rock cliff with the help of mountaineering ropes while others may choose to take a walking detour to the base of the falls. Once all members of the group have arrived at the base we pause for a light meal before ending the tour with a smaller 12m cliff where participants can enjoy jumping in to the water from various height points. Shorts, a t-shirt and solid sporting shoes are everything you need during the trip as all equipment will be provided by the organizer. We recommend that you take a towel and dry clothes and shoes for after the trip. Sun protection is also suggested and, if you wish to take photos, a waterproof or disposable camera is advised.
