About Tara Raft
Rafting or whitewater rafting is a challenging recreational activity utilizing a special inflatable boat or dinghy to navigate a fast river. These boats are outfitted with the most modern equipment and are designed for this purpose. Each passenger has a life jacket, a neoprene or wet suit and shoes. Rafts are guided by the skippers, rafters and experienced “river wolves,” who have grown up on this beautiful river. They are familiar with every spot on this river, knowing them as they know the back of their hands.
Rafting starts at Brshtanovica and finishes at Bastas, the most exciting stretch along the River Tara. This 21 km journey is a good mixture of slow and fast water, taking you through a 1200m canyon. The level of the river’s difficulty is rated at 3-4, which can be compared to the Colorado River, which is rated a ‘5’, therefore enabling the River Tara to offer adventures that only the wildest rivers can offer. Nature doesn’t disappoint here! During the rafting trip, guests are provided with paddles that are used to guide the raft at the skipper’s command. Depending on the water level, sandbanks can appear at various locations at any given time.
Even though whitewater rafting is usually done during the summer months, when people tend to wear lighter clothing or swimsuits, you should count on weather changes, the temperature dropping or sudden rain. Your wetsuit will keep you dry and protect you from potential rain, water spray where the river is wild or while going down river. A change of clothes is recommended, which will be waiting for you at the end of your journey.
This is your opportunity to give yourself a nice adrenaline rush, to experience untouched nature unlike any other in the world.
Only one whitewater rafting trip down this exciting river and swimming in its emerald pools will awaken a spirit and a passion in you for life’s adventures. You can come and go, but chances are you’ll always come back…
