The greatness of the Montenegrin canyons: Durmitor ring
The program is a circular route, which will take place on the central and northern Montenegro. The nature of this region is rich and extraordinarily beautiful: deep canyons, high cliffs, vast alpine meadows, relict forests, diverse flora and fauna create a true masterpiece. Driving along the canyon of the Moraca River (the second largest in Europe), we will stop in the gorge Platije for photo pause. This is the deepest and narrowest place of the canyon. Then we go to the surrounded by the Alpine landscape Moraca monastery - one of the monumental medieval monuments of Montenegro. The monastery consists of two churches – Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Nicholas - and several monastic cells buildings. Abode is renowned for its rich frescoes. Here the fragments of images of XIII c. are preserved, and the main part of the walls are decorated with murals of outstanding masters of the XVII century. At the foot of the monastery from a mountain cliff breaks the waterfall "Svjatigora".

Next, we head to the highlands and along the way pass the Tara River Canyon - the deepest one in Europe and the second largest in the world (after the Grand Canyon in the USA): its length is 82 km, and the maximum depth is 1.3 km. Since 1980, the canyon is a part of the National Park "Durmitor" and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Tara and its canyon are the unique natural treasure: there is plenty of coves, hidden between rocky walls, in some places there are incredibly beautiful waterfalls, because of which the river has become a popular destination for rafting, and Montenegro has not anything alike. Numerous rapids, waterfalls and islands make it possible to obtain unforgettable feelings from the journey. But the main architectural attraction of the canyon is Dzhurdzhevicha bridge – a unique five-arched design 365 m in length, one of the highest road bridge in Europe, situated at an altitude of 172 m above the river.

Then we visit the town of Zabljak - the highest in the Balkans (1,500 m above sea level). Next, we head to the Durmitor National Park, famous for its exceptionally beautiful pristine nature. At an altitude of about 1500 m above sea level there are 18 glacial lakes with clear water and fir trees along the banks. We will visit the most beautiful one – the Black lake. It is located at the foot of the mountain Meded and surrounded by relict coniferous forest. The water is so clear that the water body can be seen at a depth of 9 m. Black Lake consists of two parts - Small and Big Lakes, separated by a small strait, which dries up in the summer. There's time for lunch (extra charge). Return route to the coast takes another road – to Niksic.
