Ziplining tours in Croatia are also present further away from the coast which is a perfect activity for a day trip. One of those zip lines is located in the immediate vicinity of the National Park Plitvice Lakes, so it is worth combining a trip to the zipline with a visit to the national park.
A Thrill of Speed Through the Dense Forests of the Adrenaline Park Plitvice Lakes
The Adrenaline Park Plitvice Lakes is about 3 km from the actual National Park Plitvice Lakes and it features a 300 m long zipline, which can reach a speed of up to 70 km/h! In addition to its speed, the nature will also inspire you, since the zipline leads through dense forests and straight across the canyon of the Korana River. Do not miss this zipline and discover the area around Plitvice Lakes in Croatia from a completely different perspective.
Glide over the Dalmatian Coast

Discover the Beauties of the Cetina River in Omis
The canyon of the river Cetina, where the Zipline Croatia is located, is without a doubt one of the many highlights of Croatia and should, therefore, definitely find itself on your vacation itinerary if you are spending your holiday in Omis.

Fly over the Coast of Dubrovnik with a Zipline
The end of our zipline tour is a very special zip line in Dubrovnik. It is around 900 m long and 70 m above the ground. Its best feature? On the one hand, the steel cable runs parallel to the coastline, so that you're literally flying along the coast; on the other hand, you are in the "Superman position" i.e. you are basically lying on your stomach, which makes the flight experience all the more intense. Speeds of up to 100 km/h are possible and definitely not for those with a faint heart.
