Unspoiled nature is the focus of this tour, however focus is also what is necessary for a safe and smooth descent down the Tara river, situated in the deepest canyon in Europe. This tour will make every kilometer you traverse an unforgettable moment - and will ensure you forget the hassle of everyday life. With the watchful eye and helpful hand of our skillful river guides you will reach Scepan Polje, where most rafting adventures end, in safety and with satisfaction.
Welcome to hotel "Kompas". Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting around 18:00. Here, you will have a chance to get to know your hosts and other guests in our rustic atmosphere. At this point you will receive the keys to your rooms also.
For your welcome drink, you will have an opportunity to try beer from our own brewery which is part of the Kompas complex.
At 21:00, the hotel will prepare dinner at the hotel restaurant.
● Hotel “Kompas”, Foča
● Traditional Dinner (Appetizers such as home made bosnian savoury cheese and spinach pies, mixed salad, roasted peppers, home made corn rolls and a variety of breads. The main course consists of traditional stewed veal with potatoes and vegetables as well as vegetarian options.)
After breakfast around 8 am, you will be fitted and receive rafting equipment (neoprene suit, neoprene boots, safety helmet, safety vest and paddle). The group will then drive via terrain vehicles to Brštanovica which is the starting point for rafting on the Tara River (a UNESCO protected area). The particular stretch of river has the highest number of rapids. Prior to starting your trip, your river guide (or “Skipper”) will hold a safety briefing. Your guide will also inform you of the history of this area while you make your way down the river!
From the starting point at Brštanovica begins the most entertaining section of the river. This section of the river stretches for about 20km from “Brštanovica” to “Scepan Polje”. The time of the descent itself is variable and depends on several factors, the most basic of which is the height of the water level, which generally depends on the time of year. Higher water levels result in faster descent, however throughout summer the water level drops, and as a result rafting this section can last three or more hours.
During the rafting trip you will take a number of swimming and photo breaks. You’ll have the opportunity to see and stop at other rivers flowing into the Tara including “Šipčanica” which, along with its beauty, is the coldest of these rivers. After your rafting trip has been completed at “Šćepan Polje” you will board our all terrain vehicles and head back to hotel “Kompas” for lunch and drinks.
After your lunch and considering you have no further activities planned, you’ll have completed your adventure.
● Breakfast includes Omelet, French Toast, Beef and Pork Prosciutto and other cold cuts, Bosnian cream cheese, homemade bread, butter, jam and honey. Tea or coffee will be available as well.
● Lunch will consist of several appetizers such as veal stew, seasonal salad and homemade bread as well as a main course consisting of roast veal and potatoes prepared under a “Sac” - a traditional method for cooking along with a traditional dessert called “urmašice”.
