Rafting on the river Tara is an adventure you must experience, but if you are a mountaineer and long for fresh mountain air, we suggest the perfect vacation for the soul, better circulation and peaceful thoughts: rafting on the Tara and jeep safari and hiking adventure to the Perućica rainforest, and then climb Fog and rest near Lake Trnovačko. The area of the municipality of Foča, and beyond, is adorned with large mountain massifs that belong to the Dinaric mountain system and are waiting for you to explore them. You just need to decide which mountain you want to conquer first, and according to our experience, the biggest challenge of all mountaineers is Maglić (2386 m). This is the highest peak in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is located 20 km southwest of Foca, on the border with Montenegro. It is overgrown with beech and coniferous forests. The upper forest border is at about 1,600 m, and above that height is a plateau with pastures and numerous ridges and heights. If you want to escape from the usual everyday life and "replenish" yourself with positive energy, then rafting and hiking with the Highlander Team is the right choice. Show resourcefulness, courage and adaptability! Become one with nature - go on this adventure with us!

DAY 2: Breakfast is in the early morning hours (around 8 am) followed by collection of rafting equipment (neoprene suit and shoes in your size, safety vest, safety helmet, paddle). At around 10 am, we set off in our off-road vehicles to Brštanovica, which is the starting point for rafting. We go up to Brštanovica upstream along the Tara canyon on the BIH side, so it is not necessary to cross the BIH / CG border to go rafting. The guides schedule the seating on the boat and give a short course / brief on proper seating, boat behavior and rowing techniques in the wild and fast river. This is followed by rafting on the most exciting part of the Tara River for 3 to 4 hours with breaks for photography, swimming and refreshments. Tara is followed by another 5 km of rafting on the river Drina (near Šćepan polje, the rivers Tara and Piva meet and continue as the Drina) all the way to the Highlander camp. We arrive around 3 pm, and there is an organized lunch waiting for us. After a delicious traditional lunch, guests can enjoy a walk by the river or a sports activity at the camp (volleyball, football ...). Dinner is around 8 pm, followed by socializing with a campfire and music.
DAY 3: Breakfast in the early morning (around 08h), followed by preparations for a jeep safari and hiking adventure. We leave with our off-road vehicles at 9 am in the direction of the National Park "Sutjeska". After an hour's drive we reach the Perućica rainforest, the best-preserved rainforest reserve in Europe, from where it is possible to see the Skakavac waterfall, which is 73m high. Then follows the ascent to Maglić (3 hours walk). At the top of Maglić (2386m / above sea level) we have a beautiful view of the mountains Volujak, Bioč, Durmitor, Zelengora, Trnovačko Lake and the canyons of Sutjeska, Drina, Tara and Piva. On this mountain top there is a break for lunch packet, after which we head to Trnovačko Lake (2 hours walk). Arriving at the lake, we take a longer break, and guests can use it for swimming in the lake. After the break, we head in the direction of Prijevor (1.30 walk) plateau below Maglić, where a car is waiting for us to return to Camp Highlander. We arrive around 5pm. After lunch, the arrangement ends, but if desired and with the agreement of the guests, it is possible to extend the stay.

A popular proverb says that hospitality implies the warmth of the hearth, delicious food and the right to silence. You can find all this in the rafting camp Highlander, which is located right next to the river Drina. The silence of nature is a common "spice" of each of our meals.
Whether you are just a casual passerby and want to enjoy a beautiful view of the turquoise green river Drina from our terrace, or you are a guest on a full arrangement, be sure that you will enjoy delicious food in our camp. We will serve our local specialties prepared in the old old-fashioned way with a large selection of domestic and foreign drinks.
The ingredients we use are of domestic origin, from our area and with a valid declaration, and bread, pastries, pies and cakes are kneaded, dried and developed by the skilled hands of our cooks. All food is prepared according to traditional recipes, so guests often ask for a little "repeater".
Before going to any activity (rafting, hiking, canyoning, mountain biking, hiking ....) guests are served "Mountain Breakfast", which aims to provide enough strength and energy to overcome any challenge in nature. Upon your return, you will be greeted by hot soup and veal under the sac, and for dinner, barbecue, fish, and chicken with mushrooms or pie under the sac. Always expect a surprise from sweets, but sweet, like sweets made by our mothers and grandmothers. There will be tulumba, urmašica, and baklava, but also fruit and chocolate cakes, as well as good old donuts and pancakes with Euro cream and ice cream. In a word, many deacons for everyone's taste. They say that tastes are different and should not be discussed, but exciting rafting and accommodation in nature are offered by almost all camps on the banks of the Tara and Drina, but we know that the food we make is what makes us very different and why our guests they return.
