City of Omiš is an ideal place for a holiday vacation. Whether you are a lover of scuba diving, windsurfing, rafting or kayaking, hiking, free climbing, paragliding, cycling or a boat, this ancient pirate haven offers all this in beautifull natural environment.

Rafting on the river Cetina lasts 3-4 hours on a 9 km long route which ends in a restaurant "Radmanove mlinice". All you need to bring with you is a swimming suite, some shoes suitable for water and dry clothes so you can change afterwards. If you want to take pictures we recommend a waterproof camera. It is advisable not to take valuable objects (jewellery, watches) and if you wear glasses tight them by a thin rope. A guide is assigned to every crew. He will give you all the equipment you need, which includes paddle, helmet and buoyancy aid. You will be also given a quick tutorial for basic rafting skills. This is a pool drop river and on the scale 1-6 it's clasified as a 2-3 which means that the rapids are easy and medium. This river has found it's way through fields and cliffs creating rapids, waterfalls, lakes surrounded by wild vegetation and canyons. The natural harmony in and around this river is still unharmed. Here you'll see nature in its best, beautifull lakes, vegetation cliffs, waterfalls, caves ......

When you ask what’s the most interesting place for free climbing in Croatia, many free-climbers will answer - Omis. Combining, in the best way, the sea, Cetina River and rocks, what is really eyes cherishing, there are also several advantages in comparison with other locations. Let’s start: Adriatic road – Magistrala is passing through the city centre, and the most distanced location is only 5 min drive far and the nearest one is just above the roofs of the old town. It is possible to reach many “directions” by the road what is significant advantage, especially for “climber’s families” and bigger groups. The number of forty directions at seven locations guaranties interesting and exciting holiday. Directions range from easiest, beginners, to hardest (what free-climbers call “projects”) which should be climbed and appraised yet.
Unlike rafting, downhill in a series of river canoe (kanuing) guests are independently in the boats for 2-3 persons with accompanying instructions and a guide to kayaking. Descent through magnificent canyon depths of 40-100 meters takes about 3 hours, followed by the climb to the top where we drive cars waiting guests or organized transport, if it were the guests arrived.
Canyoning is one of the latest adventure activities that allow us to explore the phenomenon of untouched nature. In the canyon you have to walk, jump, swim and climb, which increases the challenge and adrenaline. On this adventure will be accompanied by professional guides.
 
Due to its unique location, at the mouth of the river Cetina into the sea and the foot of steep cliffs, Omiš wind never missing. Paragliding is one of the most popular extreme sports. The starting point is a grassy slope Omiš Dinara, at an altitude of 380 meters, ten minutes walk away from the place where you can get there by car. The safest and most commonly used for lowering the city's beaches. Because of the abundance of wind, paragliders without problems remain in the air for several hours.
