Zagreb Urban Kayaking

Croatia has the Adriatic Sea but Zagreb has Lake Jarun.

Ready to escape the city heat? We have the perfect activity that will for sure get you cooled down. While enjoying your city break in Zagreb which sits just below Medvednica Mountain nature park, you’ll have a unique opportunity to enjoy outdoors on open waters of nearby Lake Jarun. Small and Big Lake are perfect for kayaking sessions aimed at groups of friends and families.

Paddle strokes will lead you to open waters of Small lake neighbouring the Big Lake which is one of the best rowing tracks in the world. Shallow bayous with dense canopy vegetation will for sure create an experience of total wilderness.

Located just a mere 30 minutes from the city centre, Lake Jarun is the perfect location for immersing yourself into a micro-adventure like kayaking. You will be taken for a 3-hour long kayaking session, ideal refreshment from the heat of the day. In the end, you will still have plenty of time to explore Zagreb and its bohemian atmosphere.
