*Pick up from the Belgrade airport or city center
Belgrade fortress is iconic to Belgrade and one of the most visited locations by tourists. It will also be your first glance at Serbia! It consists of large and little Kalemegdan and is over 100 meters above the sea level. You are able to see the rive Sava and Danube. The first settlement originates during the Neolithic period, after which it was occupied by Roman’s and Byzantine’s empires just to name a few world known ancient cultures.
GATE OF PODRINJE
Gate of Podrinje is a magical panorama point which works as the entrance for the River Drina that we will visit later on the tour. This is one of the most breathtaking views of the hills, small villages and nature. We will stop here for a short photo session. This spot locates just before the town of Bajina Basta from which we will drive through on our way to the National Park of Tara.
Drina House is one of the most famous locations within the whole of Western Serbia. It has been featured in National Geographic magazine as the picture of the year and thus, it brings tourists from far away to admire this exotic creation. On top of the hill across the house is a restaurant in which we will be enjoying a traditional welcoming dinner with the whole group.
Lake Perucac is a beautiful lake surrounding huge rocky mountains. It is also the border between Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina – the sun sets right in the middle of those.
The water is crystal clear and many like to enjoy their summer days swimming and sunbathing on the ponton beach or in one of the floating bars and restaurants.
There are also the biggest trout tanks in Europe, so if you enjoy fresh fish, we’ll give you an opportunity to try it later. You will have some free time later around the area.
Vrelo has gained the title of ‘the shortest river in Europe’. It is only about 365 meters long and thus, also called the river of the year.
The water is crystal clear and drinkable. You can walk from the one end of the river to the other and admire the greenery around it.
The river connects with the river Drina, forming a beautiful waterfall. On top of the waterfall is a dreamy restaurant also called Vrelo in which we will be enjoying our dinner later on. There will also be some free time to enjoy this beautiful location.
BOAT RIDE ON THE LAKE PERUCAC
Cruise the Perucac lake for two hours and enjoy lunch on the boat.
Sit back and enjoy the beautiful surrounding and aqua-coloured water.
The boat is designed for around 50 people and will be running from May until October exception is during a really bad weather.
This will also be suitable for those who easily get seasick as the lake is very slow moving and such should not happen.
RAFTING ON RIVER DRINA
We’ll take you to raft from Lake Perucac to Bajina Basta on the river Drina. This activity will last between 3 and 4 hours depending on the water levels of the river. You will be able to see the waterfall (Vrelo connecting to river Drina) right underneath it as well as the Drina House really closely. Although those are the highlights of the trip, the views are spectacular throughout. We’ll provide you with a short training plus life jackets so don’t worry if you are a beginner to rafting. The river is very slow-moving which makes this trip suitable also for the less-adventurous.
Monastery Raca is a Serbian Orthodox church located just outside of Bajina Basta (appx. 7km and 16 from the National Park Tara). The monastery was first built in the late 1200s and it became very important piece of Serbian heritage. It was reconstructed several times after it was demolished when Serbia was under the Ottoman Empire and other conquerors. It now serves as a monument of Serbian rocky history. During the II World War the most important piece of Serbian 12th-century literacy – Miroslavljevo Jevandjelje was kept hidden in the church’s altar.
There is a 2000-meter walking track from Monastery Raca to Spring Ladjevac. Those who like hiking can walk the track but it is also possible for us to drive almost directly to the spring. This place is within the breathtaking nature consisting of several small waterfalls and spring underneath great trees. After exploring the area, we’ll have a picnic here with a little surprise in the form of traditional Serbian delicacy.
One of the tourists favourite places to visit! This panorama point is very famous and an absolute must-see. It is directly on top of river Drina and lake Perucac and if you look closely enough you can see some of the familiar spots we visited on day 2. However, from a 1000-meter altitude!
The surroundings of Lake Zaovine are full of green hills, flowers, interesting architecture and beautiful landscapes as well as tiny mountain villages. The Lake is manmade, built after a dam was created nearby. There are multiple species of plants and fish present. Enjoy some free time in nature and opportunities for swimming.
There is a horse farm a walking distance away from the accommodation. We have organised a 45-minute ride per guest for each of you. If you are new to horse riding, don’t worry, it is a guided walk so you can’t go wrong.
While half of the group is horse riding, the other can walk 2000-meter clearly marked walking path to a panorama viewpoint called Crnjeskovo. The panorama point is very near to the accommodation which makes it quite an easy walk yet, a must-see.
SARGAN EIGHT TRAIN RIDE
Sargan Eight connected Belgrade to Sarajevo from 1925 until 1974. Nowadays it serves as a railway museum making it an interesting part of history open to visitors. The route the train takes is a shape of an eight which makes it hard for passengers to know what it has passed and what is yet to come. The ride is approximately 3 hours long and it goes through the most beautiful part of mountain Mokra Gora.
Mokra Gora’s ehtno village ‘Drvengard’ near Mt. Zlatibor has its own unique look and architecture. It has been contributed by the Serbian movie director Emil Kusturica also known internationally from the Cannes Movie Festival. He explored the whole mountain and relocated all the old houses he liked to this village so they kept their rustic look. Here you can walk around freely and enjoy the exotic sceenery.
KREMANSKO PROROCANSTO (KREMAN’S PROPHECY MEMORIAL HOUSE
The village of Kremna is the birthplace of a well-known Tarabic family believed to be clairvoyant. They reached peak of their popularity in the 19th century. Near Kreman, on the way to Tara, a “Kreman Prophecy” complex was built, a one-room log cabin, which is a museum-like building.
UVAC NATURE RESERVE
The combination of unreal meanders carved by nature and the most beautiful colors of the crystal clear waters of Lake Uvac, will quickly bring you into the magic that this special reserve offers selflessly. The special charm of the reserve is given by the largest complex of caves on the soil of Serbia and very unique plant and animal wildlife where Griffon Vulture is the most famous one.

WHO ARE WE?
We’re Jasmiina and Marko, the organisers of the all-inclusive tour packages.
I’m from Finland and Marko is from Serbia. We’re both living in Serbia now and want to open the world for the magnificent surroundings of Western Serbia. It is yet not discovered as it should be. Most of the friends, family and others overseas that we talked to are unaware of this place and what is has to offer.
And so the idea for the tours began! Our mission is to showcase this beautiful place to other adventureists from other countries.
If you’re interested, just contact us and let’s chat!
