The road to the site of the rafting, although long, but quite diverse, beautiful and interesting, and, with fascinating conversations, travel time will pass by. After the city of Niksic, the most interesting part begins - the north of Montenegro, our natural mountainous natural beauty. In a kind way I am a bit jealous, because you will see all this for the first time ...
We will drive along the shores of Piva Lake and the Piva River, we will see the dam of Mratinje - the highest dam in Europe, as well as the canyons of the rivers Piva, Kamarnica and Tara.
The Tara River is considered to be the longest mountain river in Montenegro. Tara is also called the "Tear of Europe", since the water in it is so transparent that you can see every stone on the bottom or watch the fish swimming. Powerful, full-flowing, clean, it originates in Montenegro from the confluence of two rivers - Verusa and Opasnica, carries its rapid waters to the borders of Serbia. Further on the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina it connects with the river Piva and moves through several countries of Europe to the Black Sea. Once Tara was blocked by a concrete dam, but in the 70s at the time of high water it easily broke this barrier, leaving in its place only fragments of concrete slabs.
Officially rafting on the river Tara began to operate for all comersin 1989, before that the most courageous and desperate people rafted here only on wooden rafts. According to the common skill of the complexity of the rafting, rafting on Tara has a category of 3-5 (out of 6) depending on the season.
Rafting along the Tara will be interesting as for extreme lovers who will surely get their adrenaline rush here, as well as for beginners who just want to see the beauty of the mountain nature and make selfies. This kind of active leisure is available for everyone despite the age, sex and the level of preparation - the main thing is to choose the right time period in a year for the rafting. For professionals and thrill-seekers, spring and the first half of summer are ideal. At this time, the river is particularly fast and dangerous, as it is filled with thawed snow from the mountain peaks and numerous precipitations. At the end of the summer and autumn the water level falls and white water rafting becomes an ideal holiday for the whole family.
