Peace and beauty
Jul 2020 • Couples
One of the most beatifup places in whole Serbia. Pure nature, peace and silence, fresh air, kind of wild spirit all around. For me great also because there isn't a lot of commercial stuff like in Zlatibor or Kopaonik. You can enjoy walking, hiking, climbing, or just driving through national park. Really great place, with couple of great points with amazing view on lake and river, totally gonna return here.

Beautiful nature

Beautiful nature, clean air, green lakes, warm people. When you want to escape from dirty and crowded cities, Tara is the best place where you can find silence, peace and freedom. The sound of singing birds is so relaxing.

Great natural park, but too foggy day
Oct 2019 • Friends
National Park Tara is a great natural place located in Western Serbia, just close to the border with Bosnia-Hercegovina. It is a natural place full of hikking paths, canyons, cliffs, lookouts or Tara River. Really is a wonderful natural zona to stay, at least, one day. Pitifully, we visited this region at the end of October and each day was a too foggy day, so when we came here we could not see nothing, only fog. We could not to walk, to see lookouts or the River and mountain. Really, we hope to return here and see the Natural Park (we stayed some years ago in the Tara National Park in Bosnia zone and it is wonderful (without fog ;-)).
Before enter in the park, we had breakfast in a little town just before the entrance to the park, in Drinska Pica Restaurant. It was excellent, we ate local food and we liked it very much!

The Drina River Canyon
Sep 2019
We saw the park when we were traveling from Belgrade toward the Sargan Eight Railway and other stops on a Viator tour. The Drina River Canyon within the Tara National Park is on the tentative list for a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is sometimes called the “lungs of Serbia.” It’s located in the western edge of Serbia along the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Drina river runs through the park created some very large gorges. However, more than 80% of the park is heavily forested with plenty of hiking trails.

One of the most beautiful mountains in Serbia
Jun 2019
The nature of Mount Tara is intact and very special. Specific micro climate, difficult accessibility to most of the mountain, the concerns of national park and locals keepers, as well as the small number of selected nature-loving tourists, are the main reasons for this. Tara is home to a large number of plant and animal endemic species, the most famous of which is Pancic Omorica, and it is the largest bear habitat in Serbia.

There are over 30 viewpoints, 7 canyons, 5 lakes, 5 waterfalls, 5 archeological sites and several other attractions on Tara. For a complete tour of this park you need at least 3-4 weeks, a guide and an all-terrain car.

In this comment you can see photos of only those attractions that I have not described in other comments. To have a real picture of Tara National Park, you need to read my and others comments on these attractions: Perucac Lake, Zaovine Lake, Reka Vrelo (One Year River), Banjska Stena, The Monastery of Raca, Tvrdjava Solotnikt and Kucica Na Drini.

I hope these comment will help you. If you need any help regarding this or any other attractions in Serbia (location information, transportation, guidance, organizing private tours, etc.) feel free to contact me because I do tours all over Serbia.

Enjoy Serbia!

Fascinating beauty and unspoiled nature
Jan 2019 • Friends
Amazing, unspoiled and free nature, maybe the best Serbia has to offer. Peaceful, stress free, the best escape you can make from hectic city life, with plenty things to do in every season. Lots of hiking trails, different landscapes, forests, meadows, pine trees, beautiful flowers and colors in spring and autumn, stunning winter sceneries. Not too touristy place but still has a very nice little hotels and apartments, couple of good restourants with local food. Also, if you have a car there are so many things you can visit nearby, lakes, incredible mountan views...go there and disconnect from modern chaotic world and enjoy in pure nature!

Amazing Tara Mountains Bear Watching
Jun 2018 • Couples
This was one of the most wonderful sights I’ve been lucky enough to see with my own eyes. A full grown male bear in its natural habitat.
We contacted the rangers in the national park and arranged a walk to the bear hide. He took us for about an hour around the area and to a beautiful viewpoint of the valley into Bosnia.
After reaching the hut we waited for over 2hrs but it was worth every moment. My photos don’t so it justice because it had started to get dark but when the bear wandered into the meadow a few metres in front of us it was absolutely magical.
I’ve been to over 80 countries but this is one of the best days I’ve had anywhere. Thoroughly recommend it and it’s totally safe, the ranger knew exactly what he was doing. It’s also very cheap and worth 10 times as much!
Go to the nptara.rs/en/ website and get in touch from there.
Can’t speak highly enough of this place and the rangers too, amazing experience and makes you feel at one with nature and appreciate it all the more

Awesome hiking, beautiful scenery!
Sep 2018 • Solo
I spent 4 days in the park and had a wonderful time. There’s some really lovely hiking, and going in September meant the weather was perfect and the park was pretty quiet! The highlight was definitely driving to the famous canyon and seeing Bosnia across the river. We then drove down to the lake and swam there - the perfect end to the day!
It’s possible to get there and away by bus (I came from Belgrade and went on to Sarajevo) but it’s not easy to get around the park by bus so you’ll definitely need a car - either driving yourself or hitchhiking. But it’s SO worth the trip!

It's worth to visit!
Jun 2018 • Friends
It'a really beautiful and interesting national park with special flora if you see well around with great view point to visit. You should take at least two days to visit around. We had a great daily tour to view point with GREAN BEAR Company, which the tour guide's was the ranjer of the national park with full of information. Tara National Park is a must to visit when you travel to Serbia.
