It's time for some hardcore outdoors adventure! We're going to raft down the bouncy rapids lurking in the amazing Cetina river canyon, followed by a delicious traditional "peka" dinner at the restaurant Kaštil Slanica  (location map here).


The bus leaves MEDILS at 13:30. Please be on time:)


Forecast sunny with some cloud, up to 18'C. Evening will be cooler, especially next to the river where we eat.

You will need to bring:

Clothes for the rafting (can get wet!)

swimming costume


(optional) rainjacket on top

Sun cream + sunglasses

Warmer clothes for the dinner

bring a complete change of clothes
and a towel (which will stay on the bus
while we are rafting)


Dinner is at the Kaštil Slanica at 18:30. We eat next to the river and it can get cool, so bring a jacket to keep warm.
