In some part very good for relaxation in some part you can enjoy rafting, canyoing. In the city center you can seat on the bank or in restaurants. There are also few camp sites.

Vrbas river between Jajce (waterfall) and Banja Luka carved one of the most breath taking Canyons out of the mountains and is a must to drive along in a car or bus or for adventure tourists there is rafting and canoeing.

One of the best places for pure, wild and safe rafting experience. Local experts are more than professionals. The nature (around 9 km route) is amazing.
