When you arrive at the rafting camp, enjoy a delicious breakfast of local specialties. Your experienced guide then will introduce you to river rafting with a brief safety overview and instruction. Now you’re ready to begin your river-rafting adventure! Be driven by Jeep to the most attractive part of the Tara River Gorge, and hop in your raft to start your tour. While passing by waterfalls and wild springs, stop for photo ops to capture the breathtaking scenery.
The Tara River will provide you with an unforgettable rafting experience as you make your way through the Tara River Gorge, the longest canyon in Europe and second longest in the world after the Grand Canyon. Your guide will give you instructions on how to paddle through the Class III and Class IV rapids while you admire the riverside sights, including old water mills, monasteries, and shepherds with their young lambs, drinking water from the river. Pass well-preserved villages and take in the stunning shape of Durmitor Mountain, for which Durmitor National Park is named.
After 15 miles (25 km) of rafting, you’ll reach a central rafting stop. Relax on a local restaurant's terrace overlooking the river, where you'll enjoy a lunch local specialties. You can also go for a swim to cool off in this calm area of the river.
In the late afternoon, you’ll be driven back to Dubrovnik.
Getting up for a 6am pickup isn't normally what I go for on a holiday, but it was well worth it. Stunning scenery both on the drive and down the river. Quite relaxed, although informed the rapids are deeper earlier on in the season
Wow what an experience:0 My friend and I are just back from our hol to Croatia. We took this day trip to Montenegro on the 01/10/13. The tour guide explained that over the last couple of days the heavy rain had made the waters murky with sediment so it wasn't the emerald green on the pic. The weather is quite cold there so go prepared with a fleece and change of clothes. I was told that the rapids were a grade 3 for this day and to experience grade 4 to go in April when it is at its best. However, I honestly can say if it is your first time do not go in April! I have only done whitewater rafting in wales at a low grade and the first bit of this rafting had me trembling! I was advised after the first break that it was the worst bit and gets easier. From that point on there was a few adrenalin moments but all in all I breathed looked up and enjoyed it. We made a few stops to take a breather and stopped off at a refreshing waterfall on completion of the rafting we ended up at part of the river that merges and there was the beautiful emerald waters. The food prepared was lovely and basic (meat and veg) with a good warm broth for starters. If you would like an additional beverage take some euro's with you although you do get a shot of the local spirit to wake you up if the rafting hasn't;) There are showers and changing rooms and you are given wetsuits, shoes, life jacket and helmet so don't worry. The guide on our boat had been rafting for some 28 years an d reminded me of 'Cool hand Luke' pretty chilled. Go and enjoy its beautiful scenery and have fun!
