According to Lonely Planet’s Eastern Europe guidebook’s list of country fast facts, Croatia is “Famous for: neckties, Slaven Bilic, & Tito”. Montenegro is “Famous for: being really beautiful”. This tiny country, roughly 2/3rds the size of Wales or 4 times the size of Rhode Island, has stunning Adriatic coastline, Swiss-like mountains, green alpine meadows, the largest lake in southern Europe, and river cut canyons that rival Colorado’s. With a country wide population of roughly 700,000 people, most of whom live on or near the coast, Montenegro has plenty of untouched nature.

The three-hour from Dubrovnik to the Tara River Canyon is an adventure in itself, transitioning from Adriatic coastline to switch backed roads and rough stone tunnels to Montenegro’s mountainous north. Stay in rustic wooden bungalows or private log cabin rooms, lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sound of the fast-flowing Tara River. End your day sipping wine or coffee around a roaring bonfire. Meals are home cooked and delicious, prepared and served at the riverside camp. Activities include white water rafting, hiking, swimming, and lounging in riverside hammocks. Canyoning is available in July and August when water levels are at their lowest point. Additional activities may be scheduled for additional fees: hydrospeeding, canoeing, horse-back riding, and zip
lining across Europe’s deepest gorge.

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.

Gear provided: 
Rafting: Wetsuit & boots, lifejacket, paddle jacket, helmet, dry bags for dry storage of personal items on the river. If you don’t want to travel in swimwear, there are changing facilities at the camp. Canyoning: Rafting and mountaineering gear.

Late lunch at the camp; free afternoon to lounge in hammocks, hike, or schedule additional guided activities. Finish the day with a riverside dinner and bonfire.
