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.
