An adrenalin ride or a gentel cruise on Skadar Lake

Start you day with a hearty breakfast with the finest specialties of the season. Today is an exhilarating ride through the longest Montenegro Tara Canyon in the north of the country that forms a border with Bosnia. 80 km long and 1300 m deep, the Tara River Canyon in the Durmitor National Park is the second deepest canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon) and it’s the perfect location for a spot of white water rafting. Your instructors are  professional and friendly guides who are passionate about showing you the best of Montenegro. You need to bring your passport for this trip in a waterproof pouch as part of the canyon forms the border with Bosnia, you’ll exit Montenegro and then re-enter in your boat. At the start point, you’ll need your passports to cross the border. The driver will take your passport back for you, so you don’t need to worry about your passport falling out of the raft. Don’t forget to bring a waterproof camera for some stunning photography.

What to Pack: Swimsuit, Towel, Sunscreen, Hat, Sunglasses

The trip begins at the Djurdjevica Bridge 23km from Zabljak. You will be provided with a wetsuit, lifejacket, booties and a helmet to change into at the camp and start a 3-hour tour down 14km of rapids. You’ll see Ljutica River, the shortest river in Europe at just 130m long. It’s also one of the most powerful and forms some impressive waterfalls. You’ll get a chance to stop here for a rest, get a drink and take some photos. 

With a little friendly competition, the groups head towards Scepan Polje  the  finish point. The rafting is about 3 hours in total on the river with a mixture of calm spots and rapids. The water is cold and the currents strong even in summer, it can be substantially colder here than on the coast and you can also get a chill from the water.

The tour includes a photo shoot as you pass under Djurdjevica Bridge and then you finish up at Zugica Luka. After thoroughly earning your lunch on the river, you’ll head back to the camp for a well-earned scrumptious feast of roast meat or fish (vegetarian options are also available).Skadar Lake

Skadar Lake - The lake is a crypt o depression, which means that in some parts the bottom of the lake is below sea level.This territory is a witness to indescribable beauty with its overgrown coast, bays, capes, and islands, all of which are the reason this is a unique lake on the entire European continent. On these islands, numerous monasteries, churches and holy monuments are situated. The many fortifications on these islands, mostly built by the Turks, and later on, by the Montenegrin, stand witness to the wars fought between the two people.
