From this point forward, you’ll make your way upwards on foot. The cave “Kuk”, is found in the highest point of the “Bistrica” river canyon, so you will have to traverse some steep, wooded terrain.

The wondrous natural processes that create these spectacular underground landscapes take a very long time to do their work. In this particular case the cave dates back at least as far as the second to last Ice Age. Of this we are certain due to the finding of the remains of Ursus Spelaeus (or Cave Bear) dating back to 36-40,000 years old.

“Kuk” consists of 2 shafts which drop vertically to a depth of 70m. This natural monument abounds in beautiful formations, our goal is to see as many stalagmites, stalactites and columns as possible.

While admiring the impressive beauty of these formations, keep in mind that one centimeter of its formation requires 100 years worth of time. After coming out of the cave, on the right side of the river “Bistrica” you will make your way back to the vehicles, and back to the hotel for a late Lunch.

In the evening hours the hotel will arrange a dinner for all participants.

After the 3 to 4 adrenaline packed hours necessary to traverse the 4 kilometers of the “Hrčavka” canyon, you will emerge at “Todevac” village. You will encounter numerous obstacles such as boulders, natural pools and slides which must be overcome by swimming, running, jumping from heights and at some points by applying alpine climbing equipment.

Since canyoning is an extreme sport that consumes a great deal of energy, we will take a break in the middle of the canyon to replenish our energy with drinks, fruit and chocolates.

Before you commence with the day’s hike into the rainforest, you’ll have an opportunity for a short forest walk to the viewpoint where you can view and photograph many kilometers of pristine forest and mountain peaks as well as the famous “Skakavac” (or “Grasshopper”) waterfall which drops 70 meters. The waterfall can be heard for many kilometers as it drops noisily onto boulders at the forest floor. This is a good opportunity to check your gear and to consult with your guide should you have questions about your upcoming hike.

The hike will take you down into the heart of the rainforest, and at the feet of “The Grasshopper”, this will take approximately 3 hours. Bearing in mind that the descent is fairly steep and that the forest floor is covered in leaves and moisture making the terrain additionally slippery, we ask you ensure that you have appropriate hiking footwear!

On the winding path through the dense forest to our final destination, you will notice the “Suški” creek. This babbling creek, which flows through the forest, alone interrupts the serenity and peace of this place.

After you are re-energized, you will head in the direction of Prijevor plateau. After you have taken in the sights at the plateau, you will be picked up around 16:00 and taken back to the Hotel at Tjentište for dinner and rest.

Once you’ve mounted your steed or mare you’ll gallop over to the black and white lakes, which are about 10 kilometers away. Since this is an all-day activity, depending on the desire and willingness of the participants, the horseback tour can be extended to Lake Orlovac. You therefore have an opportunity to visit three separate glacial lakes of Zelengora mountain.

Your journey continues through the village of “Rijeka”, where you will visit the church of Saint Nicolas built in 1832.

Nicholas by the Holy Trinity Monastery in Pljevlja.

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 the group will have an opportunity to take swimming and diving breaks as well as photo excursions. You will visit the coldest tributary of the river Tara, called the “Šipčanica” stream. After completing the rafting trip in Scepan Polje, you will depart the river and go back to the hotel for a shower and lunch.
