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...more

As part of a 4X4 trip around Montenegro, we drove along the Tara River Canyon. It is not a steep walled canyon as we are used to. The canyon sides are sloped, heavily forested and very green. The road is narrow, offering few photo stops,...More

We went rafting by buying an excursion with Kamp Bato from Budva old town. They told us that there would be an English speaking guide - there was no one speaking a world of English! The driver drove like crazy and the breakfast and lunch...More

We arrived in May 2019, and it was a treat! While the waters were too high at this time of year, so we couldn’t raft the full river, we weren’t too disappointed after such a magnificent experience. Priced at just €45 we had breakfast and...More

I would definitely recommend going here in spring or during summer, since in that weather you can get the best possible way to see this place. The bridge is monumental and is quite smthing. It is a master peace of old Montenegrin architecture. Al tho...More

Beautiful and impressive, Tara canyon is a must see if you’re in northern Montenegro. You can spend an hour or two here walking across the bridge, admiring the scenery, watching the thrill-seekers on the various zip lines (3 different companies by my count, Red rock...More
