It is truly our pleasure to present you with spectacular kayaking and canoeing experience on the Trebižat River, only a few dozen kilometers from the Adriatic Sea and just outside the town of Čapljina.
The Trebižat River flows between hills and forests in uninhabited area – this is a magical world away from crowded beaches and swimming areas.
Come and feel the natural magic of Trebižat River. Canoe Safari from Čapljina is a tourist attraction existing for already 20 years guaranteeing the best service and safety for the guests.
Trebižat River is a crass river of Jadran basin. It is 51 km long, with the total downfall of over 800m, and per- fectly clear and pleasurable water with summer temperatures of 18-20°C, with beautiful cascades and magical landscape. The Canoe Safari route is full with the fantastic scenes of flora and fauna.
Due to its position close to mid Dalmatia, the cities of Split (145 km), Dubrovnik (120 km) and Makarska (90 km) and exceptional beauty and contrast between the sea and the mountains, the Trebižat River is an ideal destination for all adventure sports fans. Incredible beauty of nature coupled with outdoor activity makes the time spent here an unforgettable experience. Green riverbanks with all the flowers and birds are waiting to be discovered.
Majority of visitors come in the summer, when the most beautiful Herzegovinian Rivers are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. So if you plan your vacation on the Adriatic coast, plan a day on the river. That will be your best active vacation, we promise. You might come to Croatia seeking paradise, but the adventure in a kayak gliding travertine cascades – that is experience of a lifetime.
Your maximum pleasure is our team’s mission. Our offer includes single daycanoe safari tours alone, but it can also include lunch. Whichever you opt for, we are sure you will want to come back for more.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
During the high season (July and August) canoe safari is scheduled at least two times a day:
Canoeing Trebižat river: Discover our natural heritage
Start point: Božjak/Studenci
End point & Transfer: Struge
A single day tour consists of two phases:
PHASE 1 – THE RIDE
Božjak/Studenci → Struge (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.
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.
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.

Trebižat, the river of seven names, is located in the south-western region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is part of the Neretva basin and it is a major tributary of the Neretva.Trebižat is 51 km / 31.7 mi. long and is the second largest losing stream in Bosnia and Herzegovina that drains into the underground and reappears several times. In terms of length, it comes right after the Trebišnjica River which is the largest river of this kind in the world and also a tributary of the Neretva watershed. The best way to experience this meandering river of crystal clear water and many cascades is to go to Canoe Safari, tourist atraction.
In the initial part of the Canoe Safari route the river is quiet and as you go towards the end of the route it begins to cascade and becomes more and more exciting. Water temperature during summer months is about 20°C/68°F which makes it refreshing but no too cold even for those sensitive to temperature differences. There is practically no age limit for doing Canoe Safari. It is perfect for those looking for some adrenalin as well as for those seeking to relax and be one with nature. You will encounter many fish and birds, pass many travertine cascades and enjoy the wonderful harmony of the river and nature surrounding it.
