This trip is ideal for people of all ages. Regardless of your age you can

track Cikotina Lada – Blato on the Cetina or Blato on the Cetina – Zadvarje.
A lunch may be arranged by the river or in a genuine house of Poljica.
Forcing its way through the calcareous canyon the Cetina River has created
marvellous shapes and built itself a bed filled with natural wonders: high
cliffs (180 m), underground tunnels, waterfalls, lakes and more than 50
m high Gubavica Waterfall. In the narrowest part of the Cetina River Canyon,
upstream from the hydroelectric power plant Kraljevac you can find ideal
scenery for canyoning.

which together with the standard canyoning includes the descend down Gubavica
Waterfall on the Cetina River with the use of professional alpine gear
and assisted by experienced instructors.
4. Sea Kayak
If you do not prefer a river or the crowd on beaches, the ideal way to relax
is sea kayak. Paddling in a clear and blue sea, after a bit more than half
an hour you will reach desolate gravel beaches, accessible only by sea.
Natural caves, white gravel and a crystal blue sea will make your time
For true adventurers who want to enjoy the foam of rapids on the Cetina River,
to paddle along gentle parts of rivers enjoying in unique scenery and a
clear river of green colour, it is enough to be able to swim and to listen
to the skipper's instructions. You can look forward to four hours of excitement
from the starting point in Penšici to the destination in Radmanove
Mlinice. It is an adventure about 9 kilometres long and with the elevation
of around 45 metres, which you will remember for a long time and always
be glad to recount.
Clandestine paths, stone stairways and forgotten ways allow you to travel
through a rich history where unknown scenery tells its hidden stories.
It is an experience; it is a unique junction of a sea and a mountain. In
discovering and getting acquainted with marvellous places you can inhale
the scent of nature and clear up your lungs with fresh air. Intact scenery,
rich in flora and fauna, will bring exhilaration to all nature lovers and
relaxation to all workaholics. Visit the mountains Mosor, Dinara of Omiš and
Biokovo, the islands Brac and Hvar and admire all their riches and wonders.
A special attraction is the "Trail of Salt" from Gat, the capital
of Poljica's prince, through the Rastovaca Fold on the Mosor Mountain down
to tame Srijani in Upper Poljica. The trek length of about 8 kilometres
and the elevation of about 500 metres will allow you to see the entire
Republic of Poljica from the bird's perspective.
7. Free Climbing
Free climbing is a true experience. On the left bank of the Cetina River,
five minutes on foot from the hotel or the town centre, in the area of
Planovo there is a 200 metres high cliff with prepared climbing directions
for experienced climbers, but for beginners as well. Due to its exposition
to the sun, easy access and favourable microclimate it is ideal for climbing
all year around.
Southern slopes of Imber are especially favourable for paragliding flights.
The take-off points are to the west of the climbers' refuge and southeast
of Cecuk village. From the take-off points you can fly above the town of
Omiš and the touch-down points are to the right or the left side
of the Cetina River mouth.
Trails favourable for biking are mainly in the hinterland of Omiš and
in Poljica. There are several paths, easier or more difficult, leading through
picturesque scenery of the villages of Poljica and intact nature. While riding
get to know the history and way of life of today's inhabitants of small settlements
in the hinterland, enjoy the food which is still produced naturally. For
bikers who enjoy bigger challenges and a more extreme ride, there are prepared
paths. Along with the classical biking it is possible to organise mountain
10. Horseback Riding
Horseback riding is available for experienced riders, but for beginners as
well. There are riding schools for those who are yet getting to know one
of the noblest animals and a man's true friend – the horse. Horseback
riding takes place on the territory of Sinj and neighbouring villages (Cetinska
krajina), which together with the town of Sinj and its cultural and historical
heritage represents a phenomenon of its kind. Since 1715 Sinj has been
the venue of a knight tournament on horseback Sinjska alka commemorating
the victory over Ottoman Turk invaders.
Shooting balls which leave paint blotches on the hit target is the activity
for entertainment and amusement which requires both physical and psychological
fitness as well as the intelligence of players. This type of activity raises
adrenaline levels and the surrounding ambience lends it even more appeal.
12. Hunting and Photo Safari
The hunting ground of the Mosor Mountain is a sub-Mediterranean karst territory
of approximately 12 000 hectares. The highest peak is St George (1330 m)
which allows the view over the entire hunting ground as well as neighbouring
places and the islands of Middle Dalmatia. In fine weather one can see
all the way to the Italian shore. The hunting ground extends from Omiš in
the south to Split in the north, and in the hinterland it is bordered by
the Cetina River. Rich history, cultural heritage and above all natural
beauty of the scenery make it unique. Primary wild game in the hunting
ground are the moufflon, wild boar, chamois, barbary sheep and deer. The
most numerous of small game are the rock partridge, rock dove and rabbit.
The woodcock and wood pigeon are hunted while flying.

and falcons as well as protected wolves.
Guided by an expert and experienced guide a wonderful opportunity is given
in a 3-to-4-hour walk in the extraordinary scenery to photograph and film
the wildlife in their genuine natural environment. Apart from that one can
