One Day Tour
Tara Rafting Full Day Tour:
Tara River is formed by merging two rivers, Opasnica and Veruša, at the foothill of the Komovi mountain. This river is known for its clean water as the “tear of Europe“. With a length of 146.4 km, it is the longest river in Montenegro.
Its clear and icy water can be drunk in any part of the stream. It is one of the most attractive rivers in the world, perfect for lovers of adventure and active vacation. The last 25 km of Tara river and the canyon represent the most attractive part for rafting with beautiful landscapes and the 20 most exciting rapids.
Tara canyon is the deepest in Europe (1.333 m deep) and the second in the world after the Colorado canyon in America. The largest part of the Tara River, including its canyon, has been under the protection of UNESCO as part of the Durmitor National Park since 1977, and it is one of the 25 most important natural sights. The river and the canyon abound in natural phenomena, cliffs, rapids, and wild and untouched nature, which leave visitors breathless.
The rich flora of this river conserves many species of plants over time, so it is possible to find some types of terrestrial flora from the ice age. A large part of the canyon is covered with conifers, among which the most important is black pine, old up to 400 years in certain locations, with a height of up to 50 m.
