Day 2Hiking tour around Trnovačko lake.

After breakfast around 8:00, you will meet your mountain guide and driver and head to the territory of Sutjeska National Park, more precisely the Prijevor Plateau. From Prijevor, you’ll begin a steep and scenic descent towards the “Suva Jezera” (Or “Dried Lakes”) valley. You’ll make your way along the upper rim of the valley and ascend through a forest onto a plateau with a heart shaped lake at its centre, this is “Trnovacko Lake”. Trnovacko Lake is located at the foot of Maglic Mountain, and with it’s 22*C water temperature, it is ideal for swimming.

In case that your trip takes place up to the month of July, there is a high chance that you will also encounter snow around the lake. A strange occurrence considering the mild outdoor departure and warm temperature of the waters of the lake.

While the group mingles, swims and treks around the lake, your guide will prepare a lunch for the members of the group. You’ll get to enjoy lunch by the lake before the group hikes back to the vehicles and drive back to the Hotel.

Around 16:00, before heading back to the hotel, you will descend from the “Prijevor Plateau” towards “Tjentiste”, more precisely “The Valley of Heroes”. Here you will have a guided tour of the national monument commemorating the fallen soldiers of the “Battle of Sutjeska”, an integral battle against the Nazi forces in WWII. With your departure from “Tjentiste” your tour will be completed.

Lodgings:
● Hotel “Kompas” in Patkovina, Foča

● 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.

Day 3Tara River Rafting

After breakfast, around 9:00, 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.

Around 3:30, after Lunch and seeing as how no further activities are planned, your adventure will be complete.

Meals:
● Breakfast includes Porridge, 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.
● 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”.

Activities:
● Rafting on the Tara river
