1. ZIP-LINE

Zip-line Omiš is located in the beautiful town of Omiš, only a 20-minute drive away from Split.

Zip-line consists of eight cables, with the longest one being 700 meters. All eight cables have a total length of 2100 meters, which guarantee long descents through the beautiful nature.

At every stop along the way, there is a plateau, which offers an amazing panoramic view and a break for up to 15 people.

Zip-line experience

Zip-line tours are organized in groups of up to 12 people, and in that case, going down the zip-line cable could take about three hours. However, there is also the possibility to organize a private tour.

Every tour is accompanied by a zip-line guide and the cables are made to bear several tons.

Aside from the ultimate adrenaline kick, the beauty of the canyon of the Cetina River will leave you breathless.
