Considering the fact that the river Neretva is pretty calm in its first part of the rafting route, 3 km cca, each skipper provides the guests with the instructions on the rowing and show them some of its basic elements. In the second part of the rafting route we enter Bukovica. This is the part where we will pass through the canyon of the river Šištica and see its 20-metres-high waterfall over which the Boračko lake mouths into the river Neretva.
Down the rafting route we will also pass by the mouth of the river Rakitnica, and after a short break we turn back to rafting again and pass through the Grand Canyon of the river Neretva which reaches the height of even 1000m in some parts. This is the part where we usually have a break on one of the beaches so our guest can refresh bathing in the river and having some juices and fruits. We will also encounter some of the numerous endemic flora and fauna species that inhabit this particular area.
We will go through many river rapids and small waterfalls among which the most attractive ones are: Ploče, Blizanci, Osmica, S, Kalajdžijin potok, Štrojila. In the further part of our adventure we exit the Grand Canyon of Neretva and after 30 minutes of the boat ride we pass through the most attractive waterfall on the river Neretva - Džajića buk. Thirty minutes later from there we will reach our end - point - the mouth of the river Ljuta. There we change into a warmer clothes and the organized ride takes us back to the restaurant Vidikovac.
