Cetina River Rafting

The best time to go rafting on the Cetina River is typically during the spring and early autumn months, from April to October. During this period, the water levels are usually higher, providing more exciting rapids and a more exhilarating experience. Additionally, the weather is generally pleasant, making it comfortable for rafting. For a less crowded experience, choose weekdays. But remember, at least two people are needed on the raft.

On the other hand, the summer months, particularly July and August, can be a less favorable time for rafting. The water levels may decrease during this period, resulting in softer rapids and a less thrilling adventure. Moreover, the river might become more crowded with tourists.
