Your journey continues through the village of “Rijeka”, where you will visit the church of Saint Nicolas built in 1832. The significance of this national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina is reflected in the fact that valuable “icons” from the beginning and middle of the 17th century were exhibited there, which were placed in the church of Sv. Nicholas by the Holy Trinity Monastery in Pljevlja.

Day 3Tara River Rafting

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 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..

At the hotel, after dinner and drinks, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a well deserved rest.

Day 5Lake cruise and zipline Visegrad

After breakfast, around 8:00, you will board our vehicles and depart towards “Višegrad”, where we have arranged zip line and boating on the Višegrad lakes formed by the “Drina” river.

At the very entrance to Višegrad, we will stop at “Bridge over the Drina”, which is one of the most significant cultural monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina and which has also been included on the UNESCO list of cultural heritage since 2007.

The trip to Višegrad is full of symbolism and history. This applies particularly to the aforementioned bridge which was the endowment of “Mehmed Pasha Sokolovic”, one of the great Ottoman warlords, who was born in Višegrad. The bridge and the events surrounding it, and particularly its construction and passing through history, is immortalised in the novel “The Bridge over the Drina” by Ivo Andrić, a book for which he received the Nobel Prize in literature.

Downriver from the Bridge (though, the river has transformed to a lake in modern history through damming), you will find “Andrićgrad” which was created by Emir Kusturica (A famed film director and an inspiring figure in modern Bosnian history). This is an old town built in the fashion described by Ivo Andrić in his famous book and in honour of the author. To get a view of the collective of these landmarks and sites you will zip line from one bank of the river Drina to the other, and afterwards head to Andrićgrad for lunch.

After Lunch, you will board a small cruise boat which will take you on a two hour trip along the Višegrad lake and through and around the bridge itself.

After the boat cruise and upon returning to the hotel, your adventure will be complete.

Meals:
● Breakfast includes fried eggs, Bosnian savoury doughnuts, 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.
