Stunning scenery

We’re heading through some of the most spectacular scenery today as we head to our next thrill seeking appointment.

We have to cross the Montenegrin border into Bosnia to get to the start of our of next adventure – rafting on the Tara River.

So we have about an hour drive through the beautiful mountains of Durmitor National Park.

Durmitor is a massif (a large area) that forms part of the Dinaric Alps.

Durmitor National Park alone has 48 peaks – all over 2,000m high, with the highest, Bobotov Kuk, reaching 2,523m. 

The park is also home to 18 glacial lakes (known as ‘mountain eyes’ by the locals) and five canyons.

A quick pull in for a photo stop costs us $10 euros as the park ranger nabbed us and made us pay for park tickets (again!) even though we we only driving through.

The Tara River, where we’re heading to raft, is the deepest canyon in Europe and one of the deepest in the world at 82km long and 1,300m deep. 

Enjoy some of the incredible scenery that we’re soaking up as we head to the river.

We’re getting close now so next up are some pics from our exhilarating white water rafting trip on Europe’s deepest canyon!
