HIKING FROM TRSA, NATIONAL PARK DURMITOR
The third day of adventure begins at 9:00 am with a hearty breakfast before we take a drive about 30 minutes, right to the Village Trsa where our hiking tour starts. This area is a real paradise for hiking and we will take a 7 km long mountain path to the edge of the Susica Canyon. Although you will enjoy wonderful scenery all the way, the view from this point on the entire canyon and mountain massif of Durmitor will take your breath away.
After a short break, we will go back to the village Trsa where we take a break and get delicious lunch of your choice in Ethno Restaurant. After lunch, we can organize a visit to the youngest Montenegrin municipality Pluzine and make a break for swimming in beautiful Piva Lake. Depending on the breaks we will arrive in the afternoon at the Waterfall Rafting Center.
Spend a relaxing evening next to a campfire preparing for the next adventure. We usually serve dinner at 20:00h but if you get hungry earlier, please tell us and our cooks will prepare an early dinner for you.
MOUNTAIN BIKING TO TRSA
09.00 am - Let’s start your last activity day with an early and hearty buffet breakfast followed by 30 minutes drive to the village Crkvicko Polje (1100m) where our mountain biking tour begins with a 25 km newly asphalted road. It is surrounded by a thick beech forest that makes it very pleasant even on hot summer days.
Enjoying outstanding views, we pass interesting villages Nikovici, Knezevic, and Nedajno and up to the Village Trsa (1450m).
Our road back to the Village Crkvicko Polje goes partly through the mountain, unasphalted 12 km long path, followed by our vehicle with a bike trailer.
We’ll be back at the Rafting Centre just in time for lunch before the end of the trip. This long day full of activity and excitement finishes at about 17.00 (depending on breaks) in our Rafting Centre Waterfall.
You can relax before packing up and heading home or a better option is to check availability and stay another night with us. Let us recommend a relaxing program: Cruising on the Piva Lake.

WHAT MEASURES ARE YOU TAKING AGAINST COVID 19?
We are pleased to report that we had a successful 2020 season because there were no known cases of COVID-19 infection during our adventures. We take what we learned in 2020 and prepare for new adventures in 2021.
Nobody knows what the world will be like in the coming period. We hope to organize our adventures in the same way we did before COVID-19. However, we take hygiene and cleanliness standards seriously, and regardless of the status of the 2021 pandemic, we will continue to take additional steps to protect our guests and employees from the spread of the virus.
Our health and safety measures are designed to prevent a wide range of viruses, including CoV-2, and include special hand washing hygiene, disinfection of all vehicles, boats and complete equipment used during our adventures.
The use of protective masks or face cover for guests and employees of the Waterfall Rafting Center is mandatory if it is not possible to maintain a distance of at least 1.5 m.
Buffet-style food service will not be allowed and our staff will serve food. The use of protective face masks is mandatory during food preparation and serving.
Hand sanitizers will be placed at the entrance to the Center, in front of the toilets, in all accommodation units and on all tables in the restaurant. Every boat and every vehicle will be equipped with a hand sanitizer.
The Waterfall Rafting Center cannot declare that rafting and other adventures are safe from COVID-19. Unfortunately, no one knows if the world will ever be "safe" from coronavirus again, so we all have to take responsibility for our own protection.
WILL I GET WET?
Yes – but you will be in a wetsuit and booties. White water rafting is a great activity for rainy days as you are going to be wet anyway!
WHAT SHOES SHOULD I WEAR?
We provide complete and professional rafting equipment including wetsuits and booties, life jackets and helmets, as well as anoraks for rainy occasions. So you can wear your normal shoes and clothes to get to the rafting base.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You should bring a swimming suit and suntan lotion, sunglasses and warm clothes for chilly evenings next to the campfire if staying overnight in the Waterfall Center.
DO I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SWIM?
In the springtime when the river is high, it is recommended that you be able to swim. In the summertime when the river is lower you do not have to be a swimmer at all. Just make sure to let your guide know of your comfort level and swimming ability. Anyway, safety west is obligatory and you should follow instructions provided by the river guide. No one falls down from the boat, unless by purpose.
DO PEOPLE FALL OUT OF THE BOAT?
We take your safety seriously. Every trip starts with a full safety briefing and paddle instruction. Our boats are equipped with perimeter and center lines to give you ample places to hang on and stay in the boat. There is some risk in whitewater rafting, however, but it is rare that people fall out of the boat. In the case that they do – they are retrieved quickly using the drills that are taught in the safety briefing. In the spring with the higher water levels, there is a greater potential for things to happen. High water is definitely not for everyone.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Our trips leave as scheduled, rain, or shine. In the event of extreme weather conditions, we do reserve the right to alter your trip.
WHEN RAFTING SEASON STARTS?
Our season starts 1st of May and runs till October 1st. May and early June are defined by higher water flows and attract more adventuresome groups. In July and August water levels typically drop and conditions become perfect for younger families and multi-generational groups.
WHAT ARE THE AGE LIMITS FOR RAFTING?
We encourage everyone, young and old, fit or a couch potato, to experience the fun of white water rafting and hope that you will learn to love this sport as much as we do. From July – October, we hosted children 4 years old but also people in the late seventies.
WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON RAFTING BEFORE?
Most of our guests have never been on rafting before. All our trips are adapted for newcomers.
IS RAFTING SAFE ADVENTURE?
We are proud to be one of the pioneers of Rafting on the Tara River. Since 2000, our skippers have rafted with over 50 000 guests with not a single accident. Rafting is thrilling, exciting, wet, wild, and unbelievably fun. However, as with all adventure sports, there is inherent...
ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES?
All Taxes and River Access fees are included in our base price. Rafting guides and waiters gratuities are not included in the trip price and are greatly appreciated.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?
Of course, when it comes to rafting the Tara River, the more people you bring the more fun you will have! We offer some of the best group discounts on the river! Please check out our Groups page for more information.
CAN I BRING MY CAMERA?
We recommend that cameras are left behind at the Waterfall center as we cannot guarantee their safety against damage even if waterproof. However, if you would still like to take a camera on the rafting trip, we have waterproof safety bags on every raft where you can store them during the rapids and use them during breaks.
CAN I WEAR SUNGLASSES/ PRESCRIPTION GLASSES OR CONTACT LENSES?
Yes, you can, however, we do recommend a sports strap or tie for glasses. Once again remember we can’t guarantee the safety of your glasses. So if you can do it without it then do.
HOW MANY PEOPLE GO IN A RAFT?
All of our rafts can comfortably accommodate 8 guests + river guide.
ARE GRATUITIES ACCEPTABLE?
Absolutely. If your guides contributed to your enjoyment of the day please give them a tip! Gratuities for guides are acceptable and greatly appreciated. And we’d love to hear about it as well. Our guides are some of the most important people of our staff and we want to know when they are doing a great job.
CAN WE PURCHASE SOUVENIRS?
Absolutely! We have a Gift shop stocked with a wide variety of specially designed T-shirts, rucksacks, hats, etc….come on in!
ARE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED?
Yes. Reservations are required and a 20% advance payment must be received prior to the date of your adventure. Same-day reservations are accepted based on availability, so please book online or send us an email.
WHAT SETS WATERFALL RAFTING CENTER APART FROM THE REST?
Everything! This might sound like a bold statement, but we encourage you to do some research on other outfitters in the Tara River Canyon and throughout the region. As the leaders in white water hospitality, we are dedicated to making sure that each of our guests feels welcome, wanted, and comfortable throughout their entire experience with us.
