Canyoning in Montenegro
Going down the river courses on foot, swimming, diving and jumping, with no canoe or boat, is what makes this sport a true challenge.
However, real challenge begins when you set your eyes on the Nevidio Canyon of the Komarnica River (Šavnik), at the foot of Durmitor. The looks of the canyon cut have fuelled fears in many, having discouraged them from stepping into it. A narrow dark passage between confronted karst rocks hides the river course beyond sight. It was named after this feature. If you like exciting trips from fear to pleasure, this is the place which makes it possible.
Nevidio is the last conquered canyon in Europe. After numerous failures by many, persistent climbers succeeded in winning it in 1960s.
The experienced and extremely fit persons in quest for adrenaline through demanding and challenging actions can find it in the Grlje Canyon on Prokletije.
Rich water courses of rivers in the high mountains of Montenegro offer you other attractive canyons, those of Škudra (Kotor) and Trebješnica, Bogutovski potok (flowing into the Morača River), the Rikavac Canyon near Old Bar, the canyon of the Sušica River (Durmitor) and many others.
