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.

... the South Europe countries I'm going to visit. There are 10 countries in total, but for now Montenegro won the 1st place. I've been in Romania many times, but Tara River Canyon can only compete with Grand Canyon ( Arizona - USA ). The landscape is so majestic, and changing every meter you walk or drive. The bridge over... More

The bridge vibrates when lorries drive on it, scary but it's otherwise worth the trip . The views are just amazing. If you take the road to Mojkovac and drive for just 5 minutes you'll be able to be at the bottom of the Tara river and take another set of great pics

Don't miss the Tara river canyon. Do rafting. Swim. Just spend time at the river. Try to find a restaurant with local fish.

We wish that we had more time at Tara River Canyon. Amazing view and nice people. Be aware, the 260 km trip from Dubrovnik takes at least five hours.

River as border between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro has everything you would expect from adventure. Not only canyoning which is one of the best I ever tried but also hospitality and local food are at good level. This is not 5 star option and it is intended for travelers with great compasion for rough circumstances and non-luxury facilities.

Tara River Canyon is the 2nd deepest canyon in the world and the biggest in Europe. The water is a mesmerising aqua blue with white peaks where the rocks are exposed. There were massive ice formations on the sides of the canyon and the snow covered villages on both sides of the canyon were very picturesque. If you're in the... More
