The scenic drive from Croatia’s Adriatic coast inland to the mountains of neighboring Montenegro is spectacular in itself. Densely forested Balkan mountains shelter clear glacial lakes and deep river cut canyons. The Tara River canyon is Europe’s longest and deepest gorge; second in the world to only the USA’s Grand Canyon. After a hearty lunch overlooking the flowing green water of the Tara River, raft the final 18 km stretch, with 22 distinct rapids, before the Tara crosses into Bosnia. Enjoy another riverside meal before leaving the crisp mountain air to return to the Adriatic coast and Dubrovnik.
What to Bring
YOUR PASSPORT, water and snacks for the drive, a change of clothes, a warm layer (sweater or fleece) for the cooler mountain air, and Euros should you wish to purchase additional drinks (beer, wine, local grappa, coke, juice). You may drink water from the river. Croatia’s currency is the Kuna; Montenegro accepts only the Euro. A camera is optional; you will see amazing scenery and be in the 2nd largest river gorge in the world, so you’ll probably want to snap a photo or two.
Rafting Gear provided:
Wetsuit & boots, lifejacket, helmet, dry bags for dry storage of personal items on the river. You may wear a swimsuit with clothes over. Your wet suit goes over your swimsuit. If you don’t want to travel in swimwear there are changing facilities at the camp. You are served a hearty lunch after rafting and the return drive to Dubrovnik.
