"Unseen"

Harsh, but beautiful landscape of Durmitor massif is adorned by pearl of unusual beauty and still more unusual name – Nevidio (Unseen). It was last discovered canyon in Europe, narrow and deep rift that has been carved by a small river Komarnica between the slopes of Durmitor and Vojnik.

Inaccessible terrain kept the magical beauty from the eyes for a long time.

After several serious, but unsuccessful attempts, the Canyon was finally conquered in 1965. In an attempt to explore this last untouched part of Europe, members mountaineering association ” Javorak” from Niksic (Montenegro), modestly equipped, but armed with persistence and determination , entered the canyon , and followed the course of the river (about 3.5 km, which is its length ), and eventually passed trough.

Just the name symbolically speaks of canyon: that you cannot see, which has not been seen…

While being most inaccessible and inhospitable canyon in Europe, Nevidio is now available to all true nature lovers, adventurers and adrenaline addicts, ready to respond to the challenges of this mysterious place.

General information about planning your visit

Canyon may be visited as organized group only, accompanied by professional guides. The equipment used is of superior quality, because the safety in at first place. Conquering the canyon is a fantastic adventure, and from it ones escapes with taste of victory and self-satisfied smile on ones lips. And there are a lot of different victories…
The biggest and the most important of them, over one’s own fears…
Still under the strong impression, you will not even notice, that you are in the vehicle that takes you back to the starting point. In our case it is a camp in the heart of the Canyon, but this time – the Tara Canyon, where in a pleasant atmosphere, with dinner by the campfire, you can summarize and share impressions of the day that is about to end.
If you can imagine yourself in this wild and beautiful environment, if you are looking for exactly this from the Nature, steal at least one day of the summer (only at this time it is possible to visit the canyon) and contact us – we’ll do the rest. Well, welcome!

Mysterious interior

Anyone who wishes to discover and fully experience its mysterious interior must be really determined and go for it.
This magnificent natures “work of art”, dramatically testifies to the eternal pursuit of ice cold water to pave its way between two giant mountains, and the resistance of the steep and cold stone blocks from the opposing side.
The result of this constant struggle is the canyon of authentic and rare beauty, strong contrast and sharp shape. The steep water drop of Komarnica River caused the emergence of a large number of water cascades and sparkling rapids. Some of them can be overcomed only by jumping into the cold choppy water, which maximum temperature in the summer ranges from 5 to 10 °C or with the help of ropes, lowered down the wet and slippery rocks.

To return at some point, you will agree, is not easy. Why should we stop adventure of lifetime at its very beginning? Maybe the previous sentence sounds pretentious, but ones really need to have courage, be physically and mentally ready, and enter the space from which, in the case of injury, evacuation is possible only “by air”. Do we need to emphasize the fact that the cliffs up to 450 meters high and flat, next to each other, leave in some places width of 20 centimeters only, make a feeling of claustrophobia?
Of course, all the fear and discomfort disappears at the moment when they confront with a breathtaking view.
By entering the canyon starts a walk of about 3 hours … Walk along some new aesthetic dimension. Each step brings new – beautiful pictures.
High stone walls prevent the passage of sunlight to the bottom, and most of the canyons is in a deep shadow. This constant struggle of light and shadow, create unfavorable conditions for rich vegetation, but also „clean” textures of rocks. Along places where the sunlight is refracted through the prism of crystal clear water and projected onto the stone walls, creates a specific atmosphere of a art gallery… and then simply enjoy the beautiful pictures.

For all those adrenalin junkies, there is a canyoning – adventure trip which brings you to the gates of the canyon Nevidio. The adventure trip consists of climbing, jumping into the turbulent waves from several meters in height, swimming through cuts, diving, descending down the cliffs and waterfalls, with or without ropes… and adrenalin…

PRICELESS !!! We were delighted first time we came here, and second we were overwhelmed again. Encijan is arranged and clean but still wild, without exaggerating - a real fairy tale. Tara, one of the most beautiful river I have ever seen, here is unreal, almost like emerald. People and service were excellent all the time and we felt like home. Just imagine yourself deep in the highest river canyon in Europe , surrounded with untouched nature and peace. One is for sure, this atmosphere and scene you will never forget. Unique place and people and much more 🙂

So great When I decided to go rafting with my boys and friends, I expected beauty, but now I was thrilled. The camp is beautiful. The service is top notch. Great food. A great skipper on rafting. I would recommend it to anyone who loves untouched nature, relaxing by the river and the chirping of birds and a real Tara experience. We will definitely come again.

The most amazing place I have been going to this camp 4 years in a row now with my friends... This is the most amazing place, beautiful camp - like from the fairytale 🙂 Nature is unreal, view and the river also. Food in the camp is the best food we ever had, you can't buy this in any restaurant 🙂 Definitely we will be going again and make visits traditionally once a year at least!

We'll be back Apsolutno bez ikakve zamerke na bilo šta. Domaćin je, pre svega, gospodin. Osoblje je prijatno, sve je laganica, bez ikakve frke i žurbe, što apsolutno i priliči ovakvom mestu. Stvoreno za opuštanje. Hrana je odlična, smeštaj i kućica u kojoj smo bili uredni i čisti. Definitivno se vraćamo, možda čak i jako brzo.

Vraćaćemo se! Prvi put sam u Encijan došla kada sam imala 9 godina. 15 godina kasnije - i dalje se vraćam. Možda je dovoljno reći da se desilo da mi je pao rođendan na vikend kada smo u kampu i da gazda, kada je to saznao, angažovao ljude da mi donesu tortu u kanjon. Milan Šerpas i ekipa učine da svako ko dođe odluči da obavezno dođe još jednom, ili bar preporuči drugima da posete. Smeštaj je udoban i čist, Milan uvek vodi računa da na najbolji način rasporedi goste po njihovim potrebama. Smeštajne jedinice su od 3 do 7 kreveta, uglavnom bungalovi. Toalet i tuševi su odvojeni od jedinica, ali ih ima veliki broj te je čekanje zaista svedeno na minimum. Volela bih da dočaram oduševljenje moje ekipe hranom, ali ću ipak ostaviti da se još neko sam iznenadi. Bitno - raspon i izbor su ogromni, niko neće ostati gladan a i ukoliko iz bilo kojih razloga ne možete da jedete nešto iz tog izbora, oni vam uvek dodatno spreme nešto. A obradovaće vas i krofnama! Mesta za odmor i opuštanje ima i više nego dovoljno - od hamoka, preko ležaljki, stolova sa stolicama na više mesta u kampu. Vaše je samo da nađete šta vam se najviše sviđa. Spust niz reku je sjajan, nekad dinamičniji u zavisnosti od doba godine (jul-avgust je najniža i najmirnija voda; april-maj najviša i najbrža). Skiperi su jako iskusni i fenomenalni momci. Spust kao spust nije opasan što svedoči da sam ja išla sa 9 godina a moja sestra sa 5. Dobija se kompletna oprema i uz slušanje instrukcija koje daje skiper - nema opasnosti ni za najmlađe. Posle večere često bude svirka sa muzikom uživo, kamp ima svoje ozvučenje a vrlo često i gosti nose svoje zvučnike te može i da se proveseli uveče. Upaljena je logorska vatra, ceo kamp je osvetljen malim fenjerima te je ambijent uveče možda i lepši nego tokom dana. Za one koji bi ranije legali i žele kompletan mir preporučujem da traže smeštajne jedinice bliže toaletima a dalje od šanka/kuhinje/centralne vatre. Kamp se nalazi na samom početku dela koji je predviđen za spust i u tu tačku dolaze ljudi i iz ostalih kampova, tako da ne dozvolite da vas razočara što se najduže vozite dok drugi brže stižu. Vaša nagrada je da ujutru ne morate u opremi da se vozite do početne tačke, već samo sednete u čamac i krenuli ste. Šanse su da ćete na par dana zaboraviti obaveze i samo se isključiti od stresa. Dolazila sam sa mnogo ljudi u životu a dobila sam samo jednu zamerku: Što smo došli samo na tri dana?

Nema bolje Već sedmi put smo muž i ja gosti ovog kampa, što govori o tome da li smo zadovoljni. A malo je reći da smo zadovoljni, jer ono što pruža ambijent, osoblje, kvalitet usluge i hrane retko gde se nalazi. Ovo mesto je naš privatni raj, beg od histerične svakodnevice i prilika za mentalni i fizički reset. Besprekoran domaćin, uvek zanimljivi gosti, a svaki sledeći dolazak je nova avantura koja pruža i više nego što očekujemo. Nema greške. Za svaku preporuku! Ivan i Jasmina Miljković, Beograd

Mind-blowing! Not your average, generic camp! With all due respect to other camps, there's no comparison between Encijan and others! Location of the camp is unbeatable, untouched nature all around, beautiful cabins and common place that conform to surrounding nature and a view of magnificent turquoise Tara. The staff couldn't be more polite, they really make you feel taken care of. And the food is.. WOW! And if you have some special requests regarding your nutrition (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.), you need not worry, all your wishes will be met with. August of 2020 was the second time I went to Encijan, first time with my family and this time with friends, so it's safe to say that this camp is perfect for everyone and for every occasion. And I had fun every time 🙂 In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Encijan! ♥
