Tour Details

Grabbing life by the horns is not always an individual adventure, take the opportunity to do so with your family, while enjoying all the comforts of hotel accomodation.

This tour is intended predominantly for families but also for any group looking for a more leisurely outdoor experience. Leisurely does not mean less interesting, rather less strenuous, but with all the benefits of enjoying the remote and pristine “Tara” river canyon, “Zelengora” mountain and boating along the Višegrad city lakes by the famous “Bridge over the Drina”.

Aside from the stunning views, which you will view during our terrain vehicle safari through the canyon, you will also do white water rafting in the “Tara” river. This is one of the most popular white water rafting destinations in Europe, and now you can take part in the adventure with the whole family in this specially designed tour.

You will also receive your keys so you can settle in to your rooms.

The hotel grounds include a bar, brewery, and restaurant as well as a campground, lawns and summer kitchen by the river “Drina” in the near vicinity. You will therefore be able to enjoy artisanally made beer and brandy (otherwise known as “Rakija”) as well as locally grown food.

Day 2Lake cruises 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.

IAfter 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.

Day 3Horseback riding Vrbnica

Today, you’ll be served breakfast between 7:30-8:30, after which you’ll have a meet and greet with your guides and drivers and board our all-terrain vehicles. You will head towards mount “Zelengora” (or Green Mountain), a name which is derived from the forests, lakes and valleys the mountain is home to.

Afterwards, you will head to the stables in the village of “Vrbnica”. Our host and instructor will introduce us to the basics of riding. These are small Bosnian mountain horses which are trained for amateur riders and should be treated gently by all who ride them.

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.

At “Black” lake you’ll take a break for a packed lunch in natural surroundings.

After returning to the stables, you will return to the hotel for dinner and rest.

Day 4Rafting on the Tara River

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 your lunch, you’ll have completed your adventure.

Lodgings:
● Hotel “Kompas” in Patkovina, Foča

Meals:
● 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.
