Arrival to our base camp in the morning hours (till 9h). Here you will be offered a homemade breakfast and getting to know the arrangement plan. We drive with our vehicles for some 1 hour to the National Park Sutjeska in the canyon of Hrčavka River. Here you meet the equipment for canyoning and safety training, and after changing, we descend into the canyon about 20 minutes of walking.
We expect numerous cascades, waterfalls, natural swimming pools and many obstacles that we will be able to overcome with the help of equipment. In some places, we meet the verticals that we can take with the help of rope and alpine equipment. While in other places the river cracked the canyon into the natural and deep pool ideal for jumping. In the half of the section we make a small break for rest and return of energy with energy snacks.
After 3h to 4h required for passing the canyon we exit at the place called Tođevac where are the remains of medieval towers Herceg Scepan. From there, we return to the camp where you expect lunch and the end of the arrangement. The arrangement can be extended or combined with some of our arrangements.
