Description

With the assistance of our experienced guides, you will learn how to use the paddles to steer the canoe in no time, as well as how to handle more demanding sections of the river. If you feel like dipping into the water or even playing Tarzan during the tour down the river, we will make sure to show you the best locations, so you can have a day to remember.

Of course, there will be breaks to rest your arms, stretch your legs, have a swim or justrelax. Combination of relaxing nature and exciting cascades makes this tour perfect for team building and excursions, and for the Robinson ones among you, we can organize several-day long tours.

Each canoe can hold two people, and each person gets: paddle, life vest and watertight bags for keeping your things safe and dry.

You will be most comfortable wearing shorts or bathing suit and neoprene shoes. Do not forget to bring a hat and some spare clothes to wear after (you will get wet as you go down the cascades), bottled water, sunglasses, sun screen and, of course – a camera.

The price of the tour depends on the number of guests, type of selected service and is formed in agreement with the guests.

A single day tour consists of two phases:

PHASE 1 – THE RIDE

You can choose between two routes (they differ in location of the start).

Both routes finish at the same location in Struge.

Route A: Matica/TrebižatStruge (shorter route)starts at Matica/Trebižat and is around 8 km / 4.9 mi. long. In this part of its flow, the river branches out into several arms with plenty of exciting rapids and cascades that will leave even the experienced canoers breathless. In average it takes 2.5 to 4 hours from start to finish but this really depends on your stamina and preferences i.e. how often and for how long you decide to have a break to freshen up, swim or just to relax, soak up the sun and appreciate the scenery.

Route B: Božjak/StudenciStruge (longer route) starts at Božjak/Studenci andis a bit more challenging being 12 km / 7.4 mi. long. In the initial part of this route the river flows in a single body of water, deep but tame – just perfect to warm up your muscles and for those less experienced to also practice the moves and manoeuvers. Due to absence of human factor in this part of its flow, the river kept all the features of magnificent pristine wilderness, a rare thing to see in other parts of Europe. In average it takes 5 to 6 hours from start to finish and being the more demanding route of the two, lunch break takes place at the half of the route so you can rest, relax and gather energy needed for the rest of the route.


PHASE 2 – LUNCH

After reaching the finish point, the route ends with lunch. You can choose from different dishes: our traditional meal the peka (chicken or veal with vegetables roasted under the bell), barbecue, fish, vegetarian dishes, fruit desserts, beer and homemade juices all prepared and presented by experienced culinary masters.

Lunch is optional, but we do recommend it as it is gastronomic pleasure thatrounds the day.
