Hotel Ravnjak is situated in the depths of the mountain massif Sinjajevina. 15 km away from Mojkovac it lies right on the entrance to Durmitor National Park. Around the hotel are numerous wonders of the close at hand national parks, Durmitor and Biogradska Gora. These are the summits ‘Bobotov Kuk’, ‘Medjed’ and ‘Bjelasica Mountain’. These are the glacial lakes that locals name ‘Gorske Oci’ (The Mountains’ Eyes), ‘Biogradsko Jezero’, ‘Zabojska Jezero’ and ‘Crna Jezero’. This is the forest of Black Pines (unique to its kind across the world). These are the cultural highlights dating from ancient to modern times: monasteries in the valley of the Tara river, monastery Moraca; ruins of the town and fortifications, bridges and watch-towers, necropolises with tombstones; the Great bridge over Djurdjevica Tara canyon. This is the great bridge over Tara Canyon and ethnographic sights such as: windmills and traditional homes of Montenegrins "savardak".

With the underlying rock being predominately limestone Montenegro gives way to the formation of the second longest canyon in the world. The Tara river swerves it’s way through the rocky hedges, fuelled by melting snow-caps and seasonal rains, bringing diversity and fertility to the land. Currently, one of the most popular ways to explore the wonders of the Tara River is rafting. The rafting tours range from 1 to 3 days. The most common in midsummer is the 18 km descent that takes place in Durmitor National Park, leaving from Brstanovica and ending in Scepan Polje. The longer trips may be arranged on request.
While white water rafting remains the most popular form to explore the wonders of the Tara Canyon, the versatility of this natural oasis does not end there. With a guided tour the Djavolje lazi (Devil's lanes) we offer a completely new perspective on the Canyon. Ironically the Devil’s lanes are known for the tamed nature of the water. This option is available to practically anyone.
Unlike the Nevideo canyon, with this mild decent, you may choose to swim with the current through most parts or hike and climb along the shore. Nonetheless for the adrenaline junkies the path presents many opportunities for cliff and rock diving, identified by our guide.
Located in the central part of Montenegro the river Komarnica lies between the mountains of Durmitor and Vojnik. The region of interest carries the name ‘Nevidio’ meaning ‘Never seen’. Explored first in 1965, it was the last explored canyon in Europe, and to this day the canyon lives up to its’ name as one of the sparsely visited locations. Unpaved, bewildered, unseen, Nevidio is the epitome of elements for all nature and sports enthusiasts. In the deep and curvy canyon spanning over 3km you will swiftly swim with the stream frequently slowed by rocky bridges. You will jump from numerous waterfalls and emerge from whirls. You will climb trough narrow passages, and dive into unknown territory. You will be strictly guided by our instructors to ensure your safety and to maximize the benefits of the experience. As we write this segment, we come to understand how difficult it is to describe in words the magnificence of this natural phenomenon. Surely, it will be an adventure of a lifetime.
