Time Schedule for This Offer
Outdoor tour, photo safari + hiking
We depart from our rafting center Drina-Tara at 10 in the morning. We depart with our SUVs to the Tara Canyon, towards Meštrevac, the Ljubišnja, and the Vranovina mountains. The journey itself is a special attraction, as we pass through incredible landscapes and unique scenery. After a 20 km drive, we reach the village of Velenići and the hamlet of Podgrad, situated at about 1000 meters above sea level, where the Arabian horse stud farm is located. We continue the drive for a few more kilometers towards the peaks of the canyon, reaching the village of Dulin Brijeg, and arrive at the sharp right edge of the Tara Canyon. Along the way to the top of the canyon, we take a break at a rich spring of drinking water called Vrela. Vrela used to be home to about twenty mills, where the residents of the Tara Canyon villages ground grains. The entire area will enchant you and leave an impression as if you are in the middle of a fantastic epic story, in some ancient times when people were closer to nature.
In the village of Dulin Brijeg, we leave the vehicles and start hiking towards viewpoints that will take your breath away! The area is located at about 1500 meters above sea level, and the canyon sharply cuts through, forming the deepest part in the course of the Tara River. During this walk, you will undoubtedly capture the most beautiful photos of 2024! :)
Here, we enter the coniferous forest. Along a fairytale-like path, we reach the first viewpoint called Pogledine, situated at 1400 meters above sea level, offering a panoramic view of all the villages within the canyon. We spend about 20 minutes at Pogledine, then continue walking along the edge of the canyon to the Pejovine viewpoint, providing a breathtaking view of the largest part of the Tara Canyon! At this location, you will feel and understand why the Tara River Canyon, the "The Tear of Europe", is the largest in Europe and the most beautiful in the world! From Pejovine, we have a clear view of the entire massif of Durmitor and the highest peak in Montenegro - Bobotov Kuk at 2523 meters above sea level, Maglić - the highest peak in Bosnia and Herzegovina reaching 2386 meters above sea level, as well as the massif of Bioč. On the other side, we see the grandiose Sušica Canyon and Little Montenegro, and the view extends to Soko Grad, where the Tara and Piva rivers meet to form the Drina River. Soko Grad was the summer residence of the Serbian medieval ruler Herceg Šćepan Kosač, who held the title ' Herceg of Saint Sava', and the entire region was named Herzegovina after him. Under Sokol, the Zagrađe Monastery, the endowment of Herceg Šćepan, continues to thrive.
In these places, they say the best kajmak or clotted cream in the world is made, as well as smoked cheese and many other things that we will also have the opportunity to taste during the trip.
The entire walk to the viewpoints, and then back to the vehicles, takes approximately 2 hours, and the trail is very pleasant, easy, and suitable for almost everyone. Even children aged 5-6 can easily handle this route without any problems.
We return by vehicle to the hamlet of Podgrad, where we can visit the ruins of a medieval church. Then, we come to the Arabian horse stud farm and a rural estate located right on the edge of the canyon. There, in an incredible setting, on a terrace overlooking the canyon with a view that inspires awe, we will have lunch with traditional specialties prepared on the spot. Here, you can optionally choose horseback riding or one of the biggest attractions in the canyon, which is the zip-line and Via Ferrata, suspended on the very edge of the canyon, over 800 meters above the river! Only for the brave! Just kidding, of course, but you will witness the magnificent views and feel the greatest adrenaline rush of your life!
