After descending into the 170-meter-deep canyon, stop for a swim and then walk to the 55-meter waterfall called Gubavica. Make your way down the river, accompanied by the roar of the powerful waters that formed the riverbed over thousands of years and left waterfalls and crystal-clear lakes perfect for swimming. After your trip, sit back at the local tavern and relive the day’s adventures over lunch. (B, L)

DAY 6: OMIŠ OR MAKARSKA, FREE DAY
Today is a free day which you can choose to spend in nearby Omiš or Makarska.

Omiš is a small town which dates back to the ancient Greek period. The town’s heyday was in the medieval period under the governance of the pirate family Kacic, who were famous for attacking merchant boats from Venice, Dubrovnik, Split, and Kotor. In 1444, Omiš became part of the Venetian Republic, later belonging to the Austrians, the French, and the Habsburg family until World War I, finally sharing its destiny with the rest of Croatia.

Makarska, with its Riviera, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia. It is situated in a naturally-protected harbor which is flanked by two capes. The history of Makarska will impress you, and you will enjoy its vivid, lively atmosphere during the summer season. (B, D)
