What You Can Expect
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
What a beautiful and well-run trip! The canyon is gorgeous and the two stops along the way let us experience the trip in greater detail. The breakfast and lunch were delicious and fun. (I won't spoil the surprise of the "welcome back" tray!). We had a very personable and interesting guide on our raft. The only downside was the hour-plus-long wait for a bus-load of people to arrive to complete our 5-raft outing. Perhaps that couldn't be avoided, but it would have been nice to be kept informed of the wait time while we were waiting. The camp owner and our driver were highlights of the trip!
