Kayaking Zeta River

Enjoy a kayaking adventure in the central part of Montenegro, around the city of Podgorica. The excursion takes place on the Zeta River, which is typically calm and has been declared a national park. While the majority of the river is tranquil, there are short sections with Class II rapids that might be integrated into the program for added excitement. Lunch can be enjoyed at a nearby farm or household, or you can opt for a picnic along the riverbank.

Canyoning in Bar

Experience the thrill of canyoning in the beautiful coastal region at Canyon Rikavac, just above the old town of Bar (Stari Bar). This short canyon offers a blend of adventure and water fun, featuring jumps, abseils, and slides. It's suitable for various age groups and ideal for families. After the canyoning adventure, you'll enjoy lunch at a household with a spacious terrace, offering homemade traditional food and picturesque views of the sea and the old town of Bar.

Ostrog Monastery Experience

Visit the remarkable 17th-century Ostrog Monastery, which stands dramatically above the Bjelopavlici Plain. Carved into a massive rock, the monastery's striking white exterior sets it apart visually. It's a sacred site for both Roman Catholics and Muslims, and many visit to see the well-preserved relics of St. Basil (Sveti Vasilije Ostroski) in one of the cave churches. Lunch will be served in Danilovgrad, just a short 15-minute drive from the Monastery.

Kotor, Boat Ride, and Blue Cave Exploration
