Ziplining in Omis Croatia
A year ago I made a deal with Vedran, our Croatian friend. “If we come back to Croatia next year we’re going to go ziplining”. We shook hands on it.
Why ziplining? Because neither of us had ever ziplined – and because Omiš (a town close to Split) has the longest ziplines in Croatia. So what better place to do it for the first time?
So the first thing I did when coming back to Croatia was to book our tour with Zipline Croatia.
Here’s a short video to give you an idea of our experience
A few photos:
Practical details: Bring water and closed shoes. Meeting point is at Zipline Croatia’s office in Omiš. From there it’s a 10 minute drive (in their minibus) up the river and into the hills. After a 5 minute walk, we arrived at a training line where they showed us the basics (all very easy). From there it’s about a 10 minute hike to the 1st zipline. The next 2 hours were spent ziplining 8 different lines. The last line finishes near the road. There they pick you up and bring you back to the office in Omiš. Total time: approx 2 ½ hrs.
We had a fantastic time.

Funny video! Your sharing is actually interesting. I love this article.
Thank you Terry 🙂
Oh what fun! Glad you took this opportunity Frank… another thing added to my list. Loved the video too, great addition to your post.
Thank you very much Paula! 🙂
looks like awesome fun
(sigh)! I will try my comment again 🙂 . I would not do this willingly haha! My face would be like your friends in the first picture 🙂 and it would probably stay like that. That being said, l do sometimes surprise myself with the things l am capable of doing. I am so chuffed with the expression on your friend’s face. He obviously really enjoyed it, even though l am sure he peed in his pants 🙂 . Dried in the wind no doubt 🙂 😉 .
Vedran is a bit of a clown, that might have been for the camera 🙂 But he was the first time go on the very first line so he’s not missing in balls.
Having said that, yes, he might have had a dribble of pee going down his leg while he was doing it 🙂

Wow, the view down does look a bit intimidating! I’ve done ziplining at Go Ape near Nottingham but never one as high as this. By the way I have subscribed to your YouTube channel
Thanks so much Suze! I’m new to doing video so please bear with me – I promise to get better 🙂
I have not ziplined. I think I could do it if it was just through trees or something, but I wouldn’t be able to do it off of a high cliff or over a canyon – wicked fear of heights. Abi tried for the first time while we were in the Dominican Republic, but it was just over the pool area. He had a great time though, I think he went 4 or 5 times.
I was actually a bit nervous going through the forest, hoping I wouldn’t get smacked by a branch. Loved being high above the forest though with views over the area.
I think, just like paragliding, you’d get over your fear fast. Then you’d be looking to do it again just like I am 🙂
I loved the video and I would definitely give it a go next time I am in Croatia. I think I would get a bit nervous at the start since heights do scare me a little bit, but the views would be so worth it.
I went through that earlier this year my first time paragliding (in Cape Town) but ended up being easy. Compared to that ziplining even easier. It would take you 2 min and you would be fine 😉
I’m neither a speed nor heights lover but one of the things I decided when we started our new life of travel was not to let fear (within limits of course) keep me from trying new things. I’ve turned down opportunities to zipline in Costa Rica and Panama but the next time I get a chance I’m going to do it! This is on my bucket list (along with a hot air balloon ride) and what an awesome way to see the countryside!
Yes, we decided to do the same over the last year. I’ve done lots of hiking, I’ve paraglided over Cape Town and now ziplined. I thought I’d be scared but when the time came I never had any issues. A hot balloon ride would be great. Skydiving – now there’s something I don’t know if I could do. But I think I would have to give it a shot.
Lissette who’s not an adventure stype person actually bungeed off the Bloukrans bridge in South Africa, the 3rd highest bungee in the world. She acted like it was a piece of cake. So sometimes you never know…
Saw a movie where someone did this and died and then the company covered it up.
Thanks Tom, I can always count on you to find the bright side of things.
Loved the video… ah, the Go Pro! The girls did a zip line over the Eden Project in Cornwall last year, which was great… but they’d had loved this one more! The river crossing would be my favourite too! Thanks for the entertainment, Frank!
Thanks for the comment Jane. I’d do it again, we had a great time. Just wish the weather had been a bit better, would have been nice to have blue skies.
Wow, that seems a great experience! I’ve never ziplinned and I don’t know if I’d like to try it! From one side I love views from high places, and the scenery in Croatia is stunning. But… I’m scared of high speed, haha! But it looks cool, maybe I should give it a try 🙂
You know what Laia – I was a little nervous about doing it. And there was an older lady behind me who was freaking out seeing that first line.
But it was easy and after the first couple of lines it just feels natural. Great fun.
