The Adrenaline Break is an action-packed, two-day break in beautiful Montenegro. The tour takes you on Montenegro’s two most exciting tours:
It's the perfect itinerary if you want to do these two activities. Your overnight accommodation is included, so you can even make this part of a longer holiday that includes a stay on the coast.
This is Montenegro beauty and adventure at its best!

The break will take you off the beaten path and into Montenegro's back country. It's based in the Piva Lake region in the north west of Montenegro. This is where you find Durmitor National Park, Montenegro’s second-highest peak Bobotov Kuk, and the second deepest canyon in the world – the Tara Canyon.
It’s a beautifully wild area that really showcases the best of the north of Montenegro. This is the Montenegro you find when you head away from the touristy coast and the beaches.
This is rugged Montenegro, the Montenegro that’s an unpolished and hidden gem.
You’ll also get to try the cuisine of northern Montenegro – a sadly underrated cuisine in my opinion!
Think slow-roasted meat that falls of the bone, roast potatoes, fresh salads, crusty breads and tasty cheeses… makes me hungry just thinking about it!
During the break you have a full-board stay in traditional wood and stone cabins in an ethno-village overlooking Piva Lake. It’s the perfect place to explore off the beaten track Montenegro.
You'll have an early morning pick up from your accommodation in the Bay of Kotor.
You’ll take a scenic drive to Nevidio Canyon. This is where your canyoning tour begins. You’ll be issued with all of your equipment like a wetsuit, booties and helmet. Then you’ll have a safety briefing so you'll feel safe and confident while you navigate the canyon.
Then it’s off into Nevidio!
For the next 3-4 hours you’ll climb, hike, scramble and swim your way through the canyon. Some places are only half a metre wide and the canyon is up to 350m deep.
After all that exertion, you’ll be ready for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant!
After a hot meal and rest, you'll take a drive through the Durmitor mountains to an ethno village at Piva Lake. There, you'll enjoy a home-cooked meal and stay in a cabin overlooking the lake.
You’ll be picked up from your accommodation and will drive to the rafting start point in Tara Canyon.
The Tara Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon) and you'll see it in all its splendor - from your raft!
We love rafting in the Tara Canyon and usually do it every August when we start to get tired of going to the beach every day.
Yep, I do know how that sounds! It's a hard life living in Montenegro ;-). You can read about our rafting adventures here.
Once you've been issued with your gear and had a safety briefing, it is time to load the rafts and take the short drive to the river.
During this thrilling tour, you'll experience about 2 1/2 hours of rafting on the best rapids of the Tara River. In between rapids you can float, paddle and soak in the scenery. You'll also stop for a visit to a waterfall and there are plenty of opportunities for photos and swimming.
Afterwards there's a short drive back to the rafting camp for a traditional lunch.
After lunch you'll take a drive back down to the coast and be dropped off in the Bay of Kotor in time for dinner.
If you want lasting memories of your adventures in Montenegro, we recommend the GoPro camera. We have a GoPro Hero 3 and we take it everywhere.
It's waterproof, shock resistant and it comes with all sorts of attachments so that you can attach it to your equipment.
