Day 1 - Arrival to destination, Zvecaj village
Our trip begins in Zvecaj village at the restaurant Zeleni Kut where we'll gather up and meet over a cup of coffee or tea. After a short introduction to our trip for the next two days, we will pack everything we need and get to the starting point of the trip. To reach the upper canyon of the Mreznica River between Primislje and Trzic, the most beautiful part of the river right in the wilderness, you need a little more effort. The adventure takes us through a gorge so narrow and deep that the sun enters it for only a few hours each day, around noon, creating spectacular light effects. We will bypass cliffs of carved white rocks, lush vegetation and cascading waterfalls, strong freshwater springs and pools of water which are great for swimming in summer. The second highest waterfall on the Mreznica (8m) is a magical place ideal for swimming and jumping where we'll make a picnic break. We continue our river expedition downstream to the confluence of Touncica and Mreznica River where our camp is located. Our next steps are changing into dry clothes, putting up the tents and preparing for dinner.

Day 2 Continuing our expedition downstream
This morning after breakfast we continue our kayaking expedition down the emerald Mreznica River. The journey meanders through a spectacular landscape of lush forests and open meadows. The day will be filled with swimming, jumping off the waterfalls and enjoying the beautiful nature. Clear emerald water, unspoiled forest and magical landscapes - that is Mreznica, one of Croatia's finest and clearest rivers, ideal for kayaking, canoeing and rafting. This typical karst river with numerous travertine waterfalls interspersed with calm water can reach 27 degrees Celsius in summer!
Due to its biological diversity and variety of habitats, the Mreznica area will soon be categorized as a nature park. After this long but beautiful and challenging day on the river, we finish up at the Zeleni Kut restaurant where we have time to change into dry clothes and relax while having lunch. We depart home after.
Meals: B and L (picnic on your own); kayaking: 17 km; 4-5hours, moderate to challenging
