Type: Canyons, Nature & Parks
Owner description: 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.

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

The Tata River Canyon is one of the places you must have been once in your life. We did the raftingtrip as well and it was fabulous. We booked the trip in Kolasin (transport included € 60,- per person), it's worth. Oneandahalf hour to the gorges by minibus and after that the raft, that took about 2-3 hours. When we... More

This is such a stunning place, must visit if in Montenegro! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go rafting on Tara when I visited but I hear it's a great experience. I loved the richness of the forests and the intense green color that surrounds you completely. Must be really stunning in winter, when the snow falls.

The Tara Canyon and Tara Bridge are beautiful and well worth the trip in to the mountains of Montenegro. The roads on the western side of Montengro from the Bay of Kotor up through Niksic and the national park are brand new and very good, so getting there is easy. There are two zipline companies operating on either side of... More

Whilst staying in Budva we decided to take a trip to Tara Canyon and do some rafting. I'm very glad we did, we had a great time. We booked the day trip via Best Tours, in Budva Old Town. We paid 55 Euros each with breakfast and lunch included. It is a long day but worth it. Our coach set... More

Far 4 hours from Budva by car, the rafting was excellent in the river. We arrived there a bit late so we couldn't catch the morning rafting, we caught the 2p.m. one. We reserved through a local company up there (there are many in Zabaljak) and we chose the best price with the best package including a lunch in a... More

We decided for a trip organized by Tara River Express from Zabljak. Their info point was opened late evening and staff was very professional and gave us all the info-reliable partner. The rafting itself is at that time of a year rather smooth, no adrenalin at all, but the River is in wonderful scenerii and has a beautiful colour. The... More
