Teardrop of Europe…
Tara River is the longest mountain river in Montenegro which runs through the Tara Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe, at 1343 meters. It has become a magnet for lovers of beauty and nature, a place both to relax and get active, where you can recharge your batteries and your senses and face the world again, feeling energized.
Plan two or three days if you want to see all the sights of the river, known as the teardrop of Europe, and the wonderful canyon in all its beauty. You can see; Ljutica spring, which is in the Guinness Book of Records for two reasons, it’s the most fruitful spring in Europe (1000 l/sec) and is also the shortest river in the world; the Tara Bridge; source springs Musova, Bijela, Bobovska, Bajlovica, Nozdruc and Jovicica. You can feel the power of the Tara by experiencing waterfalls Tresnjevickim, Tepackim and Brstanovickim. See old bridges, caves as well as cultural and historical monuments.
As well as all of this, experience sunset in the canyon, the song of the cold and clear running water, the morning mist and the cry of eagles. At the end of every day you can chat about your days adventures back at our camp with other guests while eating homemade food and having fun around the fire.
