Sutjeska National Park & Tara River Canyon

HIKING & RAFTING TOUR | 4 days | 415€ | Sutjeska National Park hike and rafting along the Tara River Canyon, inclusive 2x B&B in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.

This great adventure tour in southeast Bosnia is made for people who dislike mass tourism, boring guides, and beaten paths.

In the heart of Sutjeska National Park in the southeast of Bosnia, you will discover a pristine wilderness: an ancient forest, a mountain plateau at almost 1.700 metres, the highest Bosnian peaks, and glacier lakes. Those are just some highlights of this fascinating hiking trip on the 2nd day of the tour. 

The next day is scheduled for a whitewater rafting. Surrounded by impressive river scenery, a whitewater rafting tour along the great Tara River Canyon is a unique experience. The canyon is the second largest in the world (the first is the Colorado River Canyon), and a part of Durmitor National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On the first or last day of this programme, depending on arrival/departure, there is a possibility to explore Sarajevo on one of many interesting city tours with a knowledgeable and experienced local guide. Check out our city tour Discover Sarajevo.

After breakfast, we leave Sarajevo at 8:00 AM and take a transfer toward southeast Bosnia, in the direction of the town of Foča. We will spend the whole day in the Sutjeska National Park.

It takes you first to the Viewpoint Dragos Saddle (Dragoš Sedlo) and then deep into Perućica Valley to the Skakavac waterfall. We will walk around the thick primaeval forest Perućica which hides many endemic and rare species. Our hiking tour continues to the Prijevor mountain plateau at 1.668 meters above sea level. It is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the National Park Sutjeska and a great place to take a picture of the surrounding mountains Maglić, Zelengora and Volujak. At the edge of the primaeval forest Perućica, we descend towards the Glacier Lake Trnovačko, which is set at 1.500 meters above sea level, surrounded by the Bosnian impressive mountain peaks of Maglić, Bioč, and Volujak. Depending on the weather, there is a possibility of swimming in the lake (swimmers should be in good physical shape because of very cold water). Lake Trnovačko is ideal for lunch, relaxing and enjoying the Bosnian mountains' serenity. After lunch, we head back to our accommodation for dinner.
