Arrival to Tara mountain, check in the hotel, diner and overnight

Tara was declared a national park on July 13th, 1981. It covers an area of about 24.991,82 hectares. Due to its favorable climate and remoteness, Tara is home to a rare relict and endemic tree species of the Balkan Peninsula, the Pančić Spruce, and many other natural monuments that can be called living fossils. The average height of Mount Tara is 1000-1200 meters above sea level. Its highest point is Kozji Rid (1591 m) and the lowest (291 m) is at Lake Perucac. The River Vrelo is the strongest karstic spring in the national park, and it flows into the Drina River after flowing 365 meters. Tara has a mountain climate with cool summers and cold winters with a lot of snow. It often rains in May. July and August are the driest months, and autumn is sunny and warmer than spring.

Breakfast, trekking tour

Trekking: Jarevac – the outlook Crnjeskovo – Ladjevac – Monastery Rača (10 km). This is a very interesting trekking tour where you can visit areas of exceptional beauty within relatively short distances: Lake Jarevac, the stables Dora, the church Manastirski Stanovi, the lookout Crnjeskovo with a view of Rača Gorge, the spring Ladjevac and nearby waterfalls (with constant water temperature of 18 °C throughout the year), an attractive hiking trail with numerous bridges and water mills, archealogical locality “St George’s Skit”, natural rarity Bukva Kapija (Beech Gate), and the medieval monastery Rača.

Departure to the lake Perucac, boat cruise through the Drina River Gorge, lunch on board, return to the hotel, dinner, overnight

The Drina canyon is one of the deepest in the world, up to 1,000 meters in some parts. Perućac lake is 54 km long and it stretches all the way to Visegrad. Navigating through the canyon of the Drina River you will enjoy in a magical area surrounded by cool green water and forest covered cliffs.

Breakfat, trekking tour

Trekking: the Nature Reserve Crveni Potok (Red Stream) – Carpet Meadow (3 km). Mitrovac – the lookout Banjska Stena (Banjska Rock) (4 km)
The Nature Reserve Crveni Potok (Red Stream) is the unique habitat of the endemic tree species, Pančić Spruce, in peat soil in Europe. The moors where the spruce habitat is found influnced the formation of peat soil. That is why visitors to the reserve and to the Carpet Meadow feel as though they are levitating while walking.
The lookout Banjska Rock is the most magnificent place on Mount Tara. You can enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the Lake Perućac Gorge and hydroelectric power plant Bajina Bašta from the lookout.

Departure to Perućac, visit to the River Vrelo, lunch

Perućac is a tourist village on the right bank of the River Drina, 13 km away from Bajina Bašta. In the vicinity there is a large hydroelectric dam where the Drina Lake, 54 km long, begins. Its magnificent canyon stretches all the way to Višegrad. There is probably the shortest river in the world. It is 365 meters long and many say that the Vrelo River is the "One-year-long River". It is rich in trout and after a short river flow and beautiful waterfalls it flows into the Drina River.

Boarding the boats, Drina River rafting, the end of tour

Boarding is below the dam in Perućac with the ride taking in the most attractive part of the Drina below the falls of the Vrelo River and with a few rapids thrown in. Journey takes two to three hours depending on water levels. The River Drina surrounds Tara from the northwest and north sides and represents the longest river in the Bajina Basta municipality with its 60 km length. The Drina is formed by the confluence of the Piva and the Tara rivers at Scepan Polje village in Montenegro 433 meters above the sea level with a total length of 345.9 km. Drina is one of the cleanest rivers in Serbia…
