Rafting in the Bihać area is possible year-round – the continuous flow of tourist traffic means that you’ll usually be able to join a group (6–10 per boat) in any month, though the main season runs from March to October. Six kilometres from town, Una Kiro (037 361110, una-kiro-rafting.com) is the best established company for foreigners, and has a camping ground next to their base. There are three main routes to choose from; listed per-person prices include equipment and transport, but not meals.
Kostela-Bosanska Krupa An easy 24km, 5hr stretch that’s best for novices.
Kostela-Grmuša Short, but packs in some meaty rapids on a 13km, 4hr course.
Štrbački Buk-Lohovo An absolutely terrifying 15km, 4hr route featuring a 25m rapid.
