Sutjeska National Park, the Yosemite of the Balkans - as 2 day package of stunning nature experience covering amazing full day hike to Trnovačko Lake followed with Europe’s most amazing white water rafting on river Tara
Package type: Adventure, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Ecotourism, Montenegro
East Bosnia regions, bordering western Montenegro with its pearl of Sutjeska National Park are ideal destinations for any true nature lover, either seeking adrenaline or just easy and relaxed explorations.
Sutjeska National Park is the best untouched nature can offer, and one does not know simply where to start from. Just by saying it is home to a Bosnian highest mountain peak of Maglić (2386m), and heart-shaped glacier Trnovačko lake, with addition to European last rainforest of Perućica, and amazing canyon of river Tara, we believe it is more than enough to give this region two days of your time - time fully enriched with stunning nature experiences which will last for a lifetime.
For those reasons we have developed two day itinerary which is great for anyone of medium to high fitness level, and delivers the best of Sutjeska National Park.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PACKAGE IS IDEAL FOR PEOPLE TRAVELLING BETWEEN BOSNIA AND MONTENEGRO, REGARDLESS OF DIRECTION, AS IT CAN BE CREATED AS CONNECTING TRIP BETWEEN SARAJEVO AND PODGORICA, KOTOR OR ELSEWHERE IN MONTENEGRO, OR SIMPLY A ROUND TRIP FROM SARAJEVO AND BACK.

Day 1 (Sarajevo > Sutjeska National Park)
As soon as we depart from Sarajevo ride will take us toward eastern, beautiful and very mountainous parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, towards regions of Foča and Tjentište. After roughly 2 hours ride we shall arrive to Tjentište which is our first entrance point to the National Park Sutjeska.
Tjentište is famous WW2 Sutjeska Battle memorial, very meaningful for the general story of Yugoslavia, which is surely unmissable topic to anyone travelling Balkans, and the topic we’ll be discussing a lot during this two days program. The last 45 min of the ride will take us up the gravel road (cca 17 km) through the heart of Sutjeska’s National Park untouched nature regions, where we will reach start point of our hiking trail, spot called Prijevor at 1668 m.a.s.l. From there we shall have stunning views over the three mountains of Maglić, Zelengora and Volujak.
At Prijevor, we shall leave our transportation and start 3 hour medium hike, which will take us through very beautiful regions of the national park and its amazing nature, where finally around lunch time, we shall arrive to our final destination, amazing glacier heart-shaped Trnovačko lake.
Trnovačko lake is nested underneath the mountain Maglić which is Bosnian highest mountain peak, bordering Bosnia and Montenegro. Trnovačko lake is actually located in Montenegro, but is only accessible as a hiking trail from Bosnian side, through Sutjeska National Park.
Once at the lake, you will be given free time to explore the lake, while your guides will take time to prepare lunch. During the hot summer months lake is perfect for swimming too.
After the delicious lunch and free time on your own to explore the region, we shall start our hike back. Again after some three hours we shall arrive to Prijevor, and then will take ride back to Tjentište and then in the later afternoon we shall arrive to our overnight checkpoint, one of the most amazing river Tara rafting camps.
Evening hours are planned for some free relax time with local music, local dinner by the campfire, while over the drinks you will be meeting up the crew members and guest you will be sharing your rafting boats with, the following day.
Accommodation is planned in simple and clean (private or shared) bungalows with shared bathrooms, made on the very edge of river Tara banks.
Day 2 (Tara river rafting > Sarajevo)
Morning hours are planned for delicious breakfast and amazing tranquil moments by the green Tara river.
As soon as you get the full rafting equipment, we shall start our 45 min ride through canyon of river Tara to the starting point of the rafting.
The Tara River cuts the Tara River Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after Grand Canyon, at 78 kilometers in length and 1,300 meters at its deepest. The canyon is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The following roughly 4 hours are planned for the most amazing white water rafting of your life.
Depending on the season, Tara river ranges from 3 to 5 on the scale of difficulty. Naturally the most adrenaline pumped period is period of spring (April and May) when water levels are at its highest points, and as we approach summer and autumn water level drops, making Tara ideal rafting destination for anyone regardless of your fitness level.
During the day we shall make few stops for cold drinks, will do some great fun on the clean, drinkable Tara river, will take down few rock for jumps, and overall you will get to experience the best white water rafting can offer.
In the afternoon when rafting is finished, at our rafting camp we shall have well deserved local lunch and after some free relaxing time, will go back to Sarajevo, where arrival is planned in the later evening.
As mentioned before, if your ending destination is elsewhere in Bosnia or Montenegro, it is no problem at all, as we are happy to assist you as much as we can.
