Tour description provided by Viator

Escape Dubrovnik for an exciting white-water rafting tour in Montenegro! The Tara River runs through the largest canyon in Europe and offers Class III and Class IV rapids for your rafting enjoyment. As you learn how to paddle through white-water rapids, you’ll take in the magnificent scenery of the Tara River Gorge (also known as the Tara River Canyon), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of Durmitor National Park. Breakfast and lunch are included so you’ll stay energized during your Tara River adventure.

After pickup from your Dubrovnik hotel in the early morning, enjoy the drive across the Croatian border into Montenegro and to a rafting camp on the Tara River, one of the most spectacular rivers in Europe and a popular place for river rafting.

When you arrive at the rafting camp, enjoy a delicious breakfast of local specialties. Your experienced guide then will introduce you to river rafting with a brief safety overview and instruction. Now you’re ready to begin your river-rafting adventure! Be driven by Jeep to the most attractive part of the Tara River Gorge, and hop in your raft to start your tour. While passing by waterfalls and wild springs, stop for photo ops to capture the breathtaking scenery.

The Tara River will provide you with an unforgettable rafting experience as you make your way through the Tara River Gorge, the longest canyon in Europe and second longest in the world after the Grand Canyon. Your guide will give you instructions on how to paddle through the Class III and Class IV rapids while you admire the riverside sights, including old water mills, monasteries, and shepherds with their young lambs, drinking water from the river. Pass well-preserved villages and take in the stunning shape of Durmitor Mountain, for which Durmitor National Park is named.

After 15 miles (25 km) of rafting, you’ll reach a central rafting stop. Relax on a local restaurant's terrace overlooking the river, where you'll enjoy a lunch local specialties. You can also go for a swim to cool off in this calm area of the river.
