Omis active holidays: enjoying a dynamic vacation
Many tourists in Omis agree that a vacation here means more than just sunbathing and swimming in the clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. This happens because Omis active holidays are particularly renowned in an area where the sea, the forests and a river, Cetina, meet. Just imagine the opportunities one has when so many landscape facets intersect.
Therefore, after having paid the regular, relaxing visits to places such as the museum of Omis (offering you a vision of the town’s history), to the eight centuries old Mirabella citadel, or to the church Saint Mihovil situated downtown Omis, the tourist who has also set an eye on exploring other aspects of a more exciting, thrill-seeking vacation in the area takes a look at the Omis active holidays package.
Omis active holidays are as diverse as the geography of the Omis Riviera. If you want to start with a gentler type of pursuit from the available Omis active holidays suggestions, then fishing on the Cetina river is probably the most appropriate choice. However, opting for a fishing daytrip is not as easy as it may sound. Generally, departures towards the canyon of the Cetina river begin very early in the morning; the pine wood has to be crossed and then you need to descend in the canyon. This does not take too long, less than half an hour, yet climbing down the canyon is a demanding activity in some spots. Fishing equipment can be rented from agencies in Omis. There are other places in Omis from where you can rent even a tent and other camping equipments necessary if you go fishing in the areas neighboring Omis for more than one day.
On the same Cetina river, rafting ranks the next among the favorite Omis active holidays. Rafting in the Omis area, along the Cetina river, does not require great skills, which means you do not have to necessarily be the best rafter the world has ever seen. Cetina can be quite a demanding river at times, but while rafting you are always accompanied by a captain, who can also be a reliable guide.
Although your best is not a must in rafting across Cetina, you will have to row nonetheless, and this for an interval of time ranging from two to four hours. It is part of the general fun to participate yourself in the fairly intense rafting activity. Also, to what concerns the necessary equipment, agencies promoting Omis active holidays will take care that you are provided with the necessary life jackets, protective helmets and, of course, the indispensable oar.
The canyon of the same river offers the chance of canyoning as another adventurous mission from among the available Omis active holidays package. In the regular canyon trips, the waterfall Gubavica is reached, even if finishing an exploration with it may be rather challenging. Of course, it is advisable to have a local guide accompany you, since someone from the vicinity knows best what you are going to deal with while exploring the canyon. Additionally, for those who feel that biking suits them better, this is also possible in the canyon of the Cetina river, although the variations of height may be quite tough. Bikes can be rented from the town. Also, other equipment, like helmets, will be provided by a local agency.
Omis active holidays may also bring you closer to the sky. How about trying to glide with a parachute? It is possible here, in Omis. Skilled fliers will paraglide along with you, accompanying you in your matchless flight experience. The required helmet and paragliding equipment is included in the price paid for this unique adventure. When you take off, you will literally feel butterflies fluttering through your stomach. Generally, paragliding adventures start from a nearby mountain area and landing is made on the beach facing the town of Omis.
While paragliding, you will have the chance to see from a height the scenic arrangement of the land and to observe the overall complementary combination of the mountainous, forested areas with the sandy-pebbly shorelines and the incredibly clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. When you land on the beach the whole experience will resemble a trip down from heavens onto another piece of heaven, this time one on which you can actually feel your feet touching solid ground.
