This Tara River Rafting Tour will pleasantly surprise you with its stunning wilderness and unforgettable landscapes. Our skippers from the Highlander team are certified by the International Rafting Federation. A jewel amongst the world’s natural heritage spots the Tara River boasts the largest canyon in Europe. The river follows the border with Montenegro and is 140 kilometers of natural wonder. The 1,300-meter canyon has created some of the best rafting and kayaking in Europe. This oasis and the protected area has a long tradition of extreme water sporting and easy family outings that can accommodate a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts.
While you can arrive on the morning of the rafting trip we suggest that you head for Foča the afternoon before the trip, and overnight on the banks of the Tara river. In that case, our package includes accommodation for one night in one of our bungalows in the canyon, as well as dinner and breakfast.
