It is the deepest canyon in Europe, and second deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon of Colorado, USA. 78km long, and up to 1.300m deep, this "tear of Europe", as it is also called, is a great natural and tourist attraction not only in the area, but in the entire country.

This is a sensational place to visit. I must admit that I felt blessed to be able to be there and experience all of that beauty. Tara River's blue and green waters flows in the midst of immense mountains providing an spectacular view. Nature at its finest. It is definitely a must go.

Impressive when you look down from the Tara Bridge, but even more breath taking when you're down under in a raft.

Tara river is beautiful, colors are amazing, you just can't stop looking, its hypnotizing. It can be interesting for adrenaline junkies - there is a zip line to make your visit even more special.

Montenegro is a very small country, so it took me a little time to take on this excursion. You will not regret, because it's totally different from what you see on Adriatic coast, you go up the mountains and stay driving only on a high level above the sea, this experience is unbelievable for small country like this. Enjoy the... More

I can't even begin to describe how beautiful the Tara gorge is! We stopped the car and jumped into the river for a swim because it just looked so amazing we didn't wanna miss out on the experience! The water was cool but it was crystal clear! It was a great experience swimming in such a natural environment. You won't... More

Tara canyon is one of the best kept secrets of Montenegro and the whole region of Southern Croation, Bosia-Herzegovina and Serbia: It is the second deepest canyon of the world (!) although not remotely as long as the Grand Canyon and not even as impressive as the Gorges du Verdun in the South of France. But Tara can be travelled... More

Take a raft down down the canyon and enjoy this amazing natural river. In September, the rafting is slow and family friendly. Take a dip in the water if you get a chance. It's freezing cold but a great experience.

Great for a calm "rafting experience", or just to watch from the massive bridge. The water are freezing, so if you jump in from one of the cliffs, just do it, don't hesitate too much.

Considered to be the deepest canyon in Europe, the Tara River Canyon in the Durmitor National Park is certainly spectacular. It is easily accessed from the small town of Zabljak and is definitely worth a visit.
