WHAT ARE WE PLANNING?

Once you've seen the Mrtvica Canyon in spring, you don't need to read any further. For those who haven't, we envy you because experiencing it for the first time is a unique thrill! Even briefly, you'll feel like you're in Avatar as we pass through the magical forest draped in moss. Of course, there's also the ritual bathing in the azure waters of one of Montenegro's coldest rivers, as well as an exciting hike through paths carved through vertical cliffs! But that's not all; the beautiful green fields of Bjelasica and the clear mountain lakes will be the cherry on top of this adventure!

WHAT'S THE PROGRAM?

May 17-18, 2024: NOVI SAD - BELGRADE - MEĐUREČJE - DANILOV MOST - MRTVICA CANYON - KAPIJA ŽELJA - MRTVIČKE GREDE - PLAŽA - KOLAŠIN

ROUTE LENGTH: 16km
ELEVATION GAIN: 300m
DIFFICULTY: MODERATE

Departure on May 17, 2024, at 9:00 PM from NOVI SAD and at 10:15 PM from BELGRADE. Drive to the Mrtvica Canyon with the possibility of picking up additional passengers at intermediate stops.

In the early morning hours, we arrive at MEĐUREČJE, the starting point of our hike.

Right from the start, we encounter the stone bridge of DANILOV MOST, under whose arches the transparent Mrtvica roars, heralding an endless adventure!

We continue the hike along the river, absorbing all its beauty, marveling at its rapids and waterfalls, while the KAPIJA ŽELJA with its magical vegetation draws closer. Here, we'll have the opportunity to enjoy views from another planet, and what adds to the charm is the fact that at a special spot, we can throw a stone into the water and make a wish.

Just when we think this place has exhausted all its magic, we reach the MRTVIČKE GREDE, where the famous Yugoslav People's Army in the 1970s carved a path through vertical rock cliffs to connect the surrounding villages. This part of the trail will surely remain etched in our memory due to its uniqueness. After passing through, we emerge at PLAŽA, cleverly hidden deep in the canyon. Here, we plan to bathe in this Montenegrin river gem, followed by a return along the same path back to the starting point.

After the hike, we return to the bus and take a short drive to Kolašin to settle in and rest...

 

May 19, 2023: KOLAŠIN SKI CENTER - TROGLAVA PEAK - ZEKOVA GLAVA PEAK - PEŠIĆA LAKE - BELGRADE - NOVI SAD

ROUTE LENGTH: 15km
ELEVATION GAIN: 1000m (550m if we take the cable car)
DIFFICULTY: DEMANDING

We pack our belongings into the bus and drive to the Kolašin Ski Center, which will be the starting point of our hike on Bjelasica.

First, we embark on an ascent to TROGLAVA PEAK, offering a perfect view of the surrounding rugged Dinaric mountains and the gentle green fields of Bjelasica. Then, we continue towards ZEKOVA GLAVA PEAK, which will once again mesmerize us with its view, where we will also see one of the largest lakes of this mountain for the first time.

We then descend to PEŠIĆA LAKE, perfectly hidden in the depths of this Montenegrin beauty. Rest and relaxation at the lake will be more than justified, considering we'll be returning along the same path back to the starting point.

We return to the bus, have a lunch break, and head back to BELGRADE and NOVI SAD, expecting to arrive between May 19 and May 20.
