ABOUT RAFTING ON TARA RIVER
MH Travel Agency organizes rafting on river Tara in the National Park Tara which is under UNESCO protection.
The Tara canyon is diving into the depths of earth, a furrow deeply cut between sky-high mountains, one of the deepest canyons in the world made by river erosion forces, the deepest canyon in Europe, and possibly the most beautiful in the world.
The length of the Tara river is 144 kilometers, the river being born as the confluence of Opasnica and Verusa rivers, giving birth together with Piva, to the Drina river, just beside Scepan Polje (Scepan Field).
The canyon is 78 kilometers long, and its deepest sides are 1300 meters deep. The waters of Tara River are drinkable all the way and that’s going to give you unforgettable moments, and quite a fantastic feeling during rafting.
The tour starts from Kotor where we will pick up our guests next to the old town, after that we continue to Budva to pick up our guests from there and finally to Podgorica to pick up the guests in front Montenegro Hostel Podgorica located in the old town of Podgorica.Our next destination will be Scepan Polje where we will start our rafting adventure. On our way we will pass through the attractive river Moraca and Piva canyons. You will see the beautiful Pivsko lake and the biggest hydropower plant in Montenegro which is on the same lake.Photo stop on the plant is not allowed.
When we reach our rafting starting point, our guests will have the opportunity to rest a bit and have breakfast and then will be provided with the rafting equipment and transfered to the river. Guests will take their boats with the help of a guide, after which they will have basic training.Guests will get the instructions what to do while in the boat and how to row and which positions are most stable so the rafting is safer for everybody and nobody falls into water.
Rafting on Tara river has a mark 4 regarding its difficulty during the most attractive period which is April and May. During those months river is fast and almost whole experience is on white water. Melting snow from the surrounding mountains makes the river fast and also very cold, only about 4°C. During summer months Tara is calmer but still cold. Rafting has a mark of 3 which is why everybody can join even the children. During rafting in summer we will make photo stops. It’s less dangerous but still has white water sections.
Rafting is 18km long and has 21 cascade. It lasts about 2 hours during summer, in spring when the river is faster it lasts shorter. After rafting is finished our guests will be taken back to the start where they will change the clothes and after which they have organized lunch. Traditional lunch is roasted lamb or veal, and fish with potatoes and salad.
