Have you heard for canyoning in Sutjeska National Park?

Canyoning in National Park Sutjeska  is a new adventure activity very popular due to the proximity of the Canyon of the river Tara, so many rafting fans can experience a new adventure. Canyoning  in the Sutjeska  National Park since 2014 is slowly being named the most extreme tourist activity in this area in addition to the many adventurous activities offered along with rafting on the Tara River. Hrcavka canyon has two  canyoning  sections, the most popular being the last section by the old medieval fortress Todjevac, and for those who want to take on the challenge of all-day canyoning for 6-8 hours, they can experience both sections. It is ideal for canyoning because during the summer the river never dries up, it is crystal clear and drinkable, and it abounds in waterfalls and deep pools. The most attractive part of the canyon is located near Tjentiste and nearby the main road, so we can say it is accessible for this activity.

Todjevac fort is a little-known medieval fortress.

On the cliffs of the last part of the Hrcavka river canyon are the remains of the medieval fortress Todjevac, which was built on top and offers a beautiful view of the entire valley, which also contributes to the attractiveness of the canyon. An interesting fact is that during the canyoning a stone cannon quince was found in the river, which was of course handed over to the museum in Foca for further research, it is also possible to find more similar remains and artifacts due to insufficient archaeological research.

 

The waterfall in the Hrcavka river canyon the attraction worth visiting.

Another new and little-known attraction is the Skakavac waterfall at the very exit from the Hrcavka canyon. To avoid confusion, it is the same name as the Skakavac waterfall in the Perucica rainforest, but it is also imposing with its height of some 20 m, so far it only catches the eye of canyoning participants. The waterfall is only 2 km away from Tjentiste and it is very easy to visit, you just need to follow the river Hrcavka upstream to the village Todjevac some 1.8 km by car then another 200m on foot and a little adventure to get wet, you need to cross to the other side of the river, this is not some problem the depth is about 30cm. All in all, we think it worth a visit this place, especially on hot summer days, the sound of an ice waterfall and the echo of the canyon it will be a wonderful feeling for all your senses.
