Dobro došli! Welcome to Montenegro! You will be met at the airport and taken to your accommodation in Podgorica. The hostel is within walking distance from the city centre, transport terminals, restaurants, bars and shops. If you arrive early you can spend the day either on a tour through Podgorica city centre (optional extra) or simply relaxing on the lovely terraces by Morača River with picturesque views of Podgorica Valley and its surroundings. In the evening we will have a traditional Montenegrin meal (own expense), which will give you a chance to meet the other guests from around the world. After the good meal, you can roll down to the local bars and pubs where you can spend the rest of the night at your leisure.

Today, early in the morning at 06:25 you will catch a train from Podgorica to Kolašin. After a coffee and breakfast morning break, about half past nine, you will meet your tour guide at Kolašin’s train station for today’s rafting adventure on the Tara River. Tara River Canyon takes pride in being the deepest canyon in Europe and after the Grand Canyon in USA, the second deepest in the world. This gorgeous canyon is 80 km long and 1330 m deep, and under the protection of UNESCO. Moreover, you will enjoy the unique Tara River with its crystal clear water, wild rapids and waterfalls, famous for its outstanding beauty. About 10 km of rapids and real rafting adventure on this attractive part of the Tara Canyon from Šljivansko to Žugića Luka, the Tara provides a true experience in this beautiful green canyon with untouched wild nature. Also, the famous bridge Đurđevića Tara, an architectural masterpiece with five arches 172 meters above this incredible and unique river. In order to maximise your experience, we recommend an Extreme Zipline across the Tara Canyon - a fly of 1050 m across the world’s second deepest canyon at speeds that range up to 120 km/h! This adrenaline-filled zipline is classed as one of the fastest in Europe and a real treat for lovers of extreme adventures and wild nature.
After this action-packed day's activities, you hop on a bus to Žabljak.
Meals: Lunch during the rafting tour (drinks not included)
Be ready to meet your trekking guide at 08:00 in the morning at Žabljak’s downtown for a trek on Mount Durmitor. The Saddle Pass, the starting point for trekking is about 17 km from Žabljak so we'll be on the trails soon enough. The amazing views of the mountain and its surroundings are worthwhile the effort of the medium difficult trek to reach the peak of Bobotov Kuk (2523m). From the top of the mountain you can spot the canyons Tara and Piva in the distant horizon as well as the highest mountains of Albania, Serbia, and Bosnia (Prokletije, Kopaonik, and Zelengora). The track takes approximately 6 hours with 5-6 km of trekking in total. After some fantastic trekking, we take you back to your accommodation.
Meals: Lunch box during the trek (drinks not included)
If there’s something you’d love to do in Žabljak, today is the day for it. Wander through the town, take a paraglider flight from Savin Kuk (2316m) or go on the daily Black Lake tour. Alternatively, take a leisurely stroll in the meadows of Žabljak, and as the night approaches, just sit down at one of the town's restaurants for a delicious dinner!
Meals: Not included
This morning at 09:00 we’ll leave Žabljak and Durmitor and head towards Šavnik and Nevidio for a scenic and adventurous canyoning experience. Nevidio Canyon is a place where millions of years ago the mountains of Durmitor and Vojnik crashed into each other. This is the last conquered canyon in Europe, and it remains as one of the most impassable.
The first encounter with Nevidio will take your breath away with its extraordinary beauty. It starts at the very end of the valley, justifying its name 'Unseen' as the river Komarnica suddenly disappears in the strangely carved entrance and becomes invisible to the human eye. The biggest part of the canyon is in eternal shadow. During the canyoning tour we will have 1-2 breaks with refreshments and amazing photo opportunities. The unique beauty of the cascades and big waterfalls is more than sufficient a reason to see and experience this incredible canyon in Montenegro.
The passage through the canyon takes about 4 hours. Following lunch, you'll hop on a local bus to Podgorica, where this exciting tour ends.
