Day 6: Una River - Rafting
The Una river is a natural border between Croatia and Bosnia; water levels are high even in the summer so rafting is possible all year round.

Paddle past cliffs, lush vegetation, waterfalls, and a freshwater spring and proceed to the second highest waterfall on the Mreznica river (8m), the ideal place to stop off for swimming and a picnic, then continue on to the end point. Afterwards you will have some free time to visit the charming village of Rastoke. Return to Korana for a farewell dinner.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest and largest in Croatia and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the centre of the country, near the border with Bosnia Herzegovina, it connects the inland region with the Adriatic coast.

The park is famous for its beautiful travertine waterfalls and 16 interconnected lakes that cascade into each other, ranging in shade from light blue to dark green depending on the angle of the light and the minerals and organisms present in the water.

A popular location for hiking, there are a number of marked trails around the park, with wooden walkways that cross the lakes and waterfalls.

The rivers in the area are ideal for kayaking and rafting; paddle through towering limestone canyons, past waterfalls and discover hidden caves and pools where you can take a dip in the fresh water.

The small village of Korana, where you will be based during your stay, is located close to entrance to the National Park, on the Korana river. Here you will find some small welcoming homes close to the river’s edge, where you can take a refreshing swim after the day’s activity.
