Activity Note: This part of rafting on the river Tara we do in the upper part of the canyon, and in this part the degree of difficulty of rafting is adapted to everyone, especially families with children. During 2-3 hours of rafting, you enjoy the maximum of the beautiful panoramas and endless heights of the unsurpassed canyon of Tara River.
The River Tara, famously called – the tear of Europe, is one of the most beautiful and exciting rivers in Europe! Visiting Durmitor National Park without experiencing the white water river rafting via the most attractive part of the Tara canyon, is a miss.
In the morning around 10 AM we are picking you up at your accommodation at Žabljak and we are ready to go.
When originally constructed in 1940, during the era of Kingdom of Yugoslavia, with length of 365m and maximum height of 172m, looming over the 150m deep river Tara canyon, Đurđevića Tara bridge was the highest in the World.
Once there, we have several options on how to explore one of mankind’s greatest achievements in the sphere of architecture. Aside from walking the bridge and admiring the beautiful surroundings of Tara canyon, the best way to experience this scenery is by one of Europe’s longest ziplines. If you decide to opt for this stunning experience, zip lining down the 1200m of rope, will be an amazing upgrade to this amazing day.
Also at the location of the bridge you have three zip line options, each different in length, speed and attractiveness of the ride. Since this is an optional activity, you can choose which zip line you want, or if you don’t want to at all. If you are not a fan of the zip line, you can just walk the Djurdjevica Tara bridge and experience this location in an easy and relaxed way.
Tara river canyon is one of the most impressive wonders of the World. With a height of 1300m, Tara canyon is considered the deepest in Europe and 2nd deepest in the World (after the Grand Canyon in USA). It is no wonder that UNESCO inscribed Tara river into its program “The Man and Biosphere” due to its vast natural diversity and richness of life.
Truly the best way to experience this natural phenomenon is along the Tara river white water rafting route.
At the location of the Tara Bridge we are having some welcome drinks and picking up our rafting gear.
Our rafting gear consists of a neoprene suit and special rafting boots, helmet, vest and paddle. Water temperature during the summer season never goes above 11-12°C, meaning we will provide you with the best rafting gear available on the market to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Funky Tours always collaborate with the best rafting companies, providing professional English speaking skippers and best of the best equipment.
Usually we are hitting rapids around noon and depending on the month of the summer season, rafting lasts between 2 to 3 hours.
During the Tara river rafting, we are having so much fun on the rapids. Aside from admiring the natural wonders of this beautiful turquoise river, its rapids, its cleanliness, its high peaks, we are also learning about the natural diversity of the canyon itself, and what it means to the local community.
Diving, swimming, chilling, cold drinks, adrenalin rush are all the beauties on our “menu” today.
At the end of our rafting adventure, once we are back to our rafting camp we shall have a well deserved lunch. Lunch will be a combination of local Durmitor specialties with available vegetarian options. One of the most popular food options in continental Montenegro is meat and vegetables baked under the “sač” (eng.bell kind of metal cover).
After lunch, having local coffee or cold beer, sitting at the banks of the beautiful Tara river and remembering all the amazing moments on your three-day adventure, will make you appreciate life even more. We guarantee it!
After a beautiful adventure, we return to Žabljak, but it is not the end of the day. We will return to Zabljak along the road that leads us past the beautiful glacial lakes Vrazje and Riblje, and we will visit the necropolis of medieval stećak tombstones.
