This unique enjoyment during the rafting is eternal memory. If you want to know Tara River better and if you want to live a new experience, we suggest you this arrangement.
When you make that first step from the boat, after a few hours of stroking, arrive and realized that we didn`t lie to you and that it is more beautiful than you imagined.And with the first stroke of your oar on the boat, and with the first kilometer,you will have the opportunity to feel what we are talking about.
It is a God given place, a miniature paradise on earth, like it was made for rest and enjoyment.
