One part of the river flows through the National Park Durmitor where the canyon is the deepest and the last 30km of river is the border between BiH and Montenegro until the constituents where it crosses with river Piva and makes the river Drina. This pearly pure river with a lot of attractive tributaries and waterfalls is floatable for rafts and kayaks some 100 km, of which 15 last kilometers are the most attractive part with over 20 rapids. The Tara River offers many attractions that are hidden in the depths of this canyon which can be reached exclusively by boat, It is also possible to visit the highest rim of the canyon and see the canyon from another angle. Whatever you decide, you will not remain indifferent with the beauty of this river and its canyon.

Durmitor The largest national park in Montenegro, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1980. It covers the Durmitor mountain massif, the canyons of the river Tara, Draga, Susica and the highest part of the canyon valley Komarnica, from which numerous mountain peaks rise. The highest peak is Bobotov kuk 2,525 m above sea level. Durmitor adorns 18 glacier lakes called “mountain eyes”. The Tara canyon whose height is 1,300 m above the river, is the largest in Europe and a top destination for hikers and rafters. For those of the larger adrenaline spirit there is a canyoning in the Nevidio canyon that is part of the Komarnica River. Durmitor National Park is a must for all nature lovers were they rafters, hikers, or simply admirers of this oasis of untouched nature.

National Park Sutjeska

Sutjeska This unique national park is both the largest and the oldest in BiH and as a large number of our activities take place at this location, we will write out a few sentences to inform you. National Park Sutjeska is home to one of the last primeval forests in Europe under UNESCO protection with trees over 60m in height. In the middle of the primeval forest lies the Skakavac waterfall 75m high which contributes to the magic of this place. Rijeka Sutjeska carved the beautiful valley of Tjentište in the center of the park and separates the mountain Zelengora from the mountains Maglić and Volujak. The highest peak of BiH Maglić (2386m) is located on the border with Montenegro and is very attractive and challenging for mountaineers as well as for all nature lovers. In addition to the famous Trnovac Lake, which is located in Montenegro, and the only access pedestrian path is through the National Park Sutjeska, also in the park park we have a large number of not less beautiful glacial lakes. There are no words to describe every magical place in the park for this experience you need to visit one of these destinations, hear the sounds of wild nature and see for yourself the magnificent beauty of this region.

Canyoning Hrcavka

Canyoning Hrcavkom is an extraordinary activity in the National Park Sutjeska. In addition to the many beautiful places of which this park is famous, from the highest peak of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the unique primeval forest Perucica, numerous glacier lakes … there is also a hidden canyon of the Hrčavka River. It has been only recently researched but already very popular because of the harsh beauty of the canyon as well as many incredible waterfalls, cascades and pools that the river shaped in this canyon. The canyon has two sections for canyoning, the first being ideal and adapted to almost everyone who knows the basic swimming skills and is ready for an adventure of 2.5h to 3.5h in unspoiled nature. The second part is long and demanding, designed for all those who are ready to spend up to 6 hours in the canyon and feel all the magic of the canyoning. It is very important to know your boundaries because, primarily, any route you choose you are here to enjoy and experience the adventurous spirit of exploration and connectivity with nature.

About canoeing

Try out a new activity in our offer for a better experience on the river Tara. Jump into one of our inflatable kayaks (whitewater canoes) and take river navigation into your own hands. Possibly you are thinking that you don’t have the skill level for this craft, but it’s not as hard as it seems. These boats are really more like a mini raft than a conventional kayak, they are easy to paddle and incredibly forgiving and stable, can be used as two-person or single person craft. White water canoe trips make a terrific alternative to hardshell kayak tours for those wanting to try something new, but not ready to hop in a kayak. At the beginning of the trip, our guides will give you instruction on how to steer them, and from there on direct you where you need to be on the river. At all times they will keep a practiced eye on how you are going. Depending on your skill level, ability to swim and water level our experienced guides will help you choose the whitewater section that meets the needs of your group. This adventure will give you a fun ride, challenge you, most probably get you wet, and ensure big, big smiles at the end of the day.
