Day I
Gradac river exploration
River Gradac

Your guide will pick you up at Belgrade Airport. Transfer to the mountain town of Valjevo (1.5 hours) and prepare for our first adventure.

Today you’ll explore river Gradac, located in the vicinity of Valjevo, is considered to be one of the cleanest of its kind in the Balkans, its waters being completely drinkable. The canyon surrounding it is tucked between myriad of hills and cliffs, accessible only by foot.

Our walk is about 4-5 km long, but it leads us through areas that are only available to true nature lovers. We will venture into the canyon through a paved road leaning against the river itself, crossing it from time to time and even bathing in it during our breaks. Our journey through the canyon will last about 2-3 hours. In case the water is too cold, all participants will receive neoprene socks, which will keep them warm.

The trek will end at the Celije Monastery. Despite its remote and secluded location, the monastery has been razed and rebuilt several times since its creation in the 13th Century.

After touring the site you’ll be driven back to your accommodation for a well-deserved dinner and rest.

Hiking for 2-3 hours (4-5 km)

Day II
Canyoning adventure
Tribuca canyon

After breakfast you’ll set out on a canyoning adventure. The Tribuca River canyon is so narrow and remote it went undiscovered for years.

Your guide will kit you out with a wet suit, harness and helmet, then you’ll delve into the prehistoric-seeming canyon for 4-5 hours of abseiling, pool jumps and swimming.

You’ll negotiate 5 cliffs as high as 25m, and ultimately emerge at the far end of the canyon feeling quite accomplished.

From there, it will take around 30 min of relaxed pace to our transport who will wait with our dry clothes and lunch. Relax on the riverbanks, then return to your accommodation (1.5 hours) for a free afternoon before enjoying a well-deserved dinner.
