Rafting is an exciting, adventurous activity in which the participants seated on rubber boats, with the help of a guide - skipper descend down the rapids of stirred rivers. The popularity of this activity is increasing year by year. Every year, tens of thousands of tourists flock down the Tara River from all over the world.
Not only is the Tara River one of the last wild rivers in Europe, but its canyon is one of the longest and deepest river canyons in the world, just after the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River, USA. The most attractive part of the Tara River for a rafting adventure is the one which our guests have the opportunity to try. The part from the starting point - Brštanovica to our “Rafting center RT” is the most exciting 25km of the river. In this section the Tara River offers beautiful scenery, waterfalls and rapids, and the water is so clear that you won't resist trying it.
Rafting is performed by high quality rubber boats that are specially made for wild waters, having a capacity of 6 - 10 persons, operated by our experienced and licensed skippers.
The skippers have received training and are certified by the International Rafting Federation (IRF). Of course, each of them has a large number of descents down the Tara River; they know every stone and every sound on the river by heart. For them, it is primarily a pleasure and a way of life, and only then a job.
We usually start the rafting adventure after breakfast. Approximately around 10 a.m.
