In the morning, your #destinationserbia tour guide will pick you up from your accommodation, and after approximately 1 hour of driving, we'll arrive at Zlatar Lake. As the largest of three lakes created by dams on the Uvac river, Zlatar Lake is a picturesque setting with dense evergreen forests reflecting in its crystal-clear waters, offering a perfect photo opportunity to start the day. After a brief stop at Zlatar Lake, our journey continues to the Uvac Special Nature Reserve. Nestled between the Zlatar and Javor mountains, as well as the Sjenica and Nova Varoš municipalities, this protected natural park is our next destination. Here, we'll embark on a boat cruise along the meanders of the Uvac canyon. During the cruise, our guide will share stories about the canyon's most famous inhabitants, the griffon vultures, as well as tales of the traditional way of life of the shepherds who have lived here for centuries. We'll also learn about the Imperial Road that once ran through this area, connecting Dubrovnik and Constantinople. After the boat ride, we'll have the opportunity to visit the Ice Cave, named for its constant temperature of 8 degrees Celsius throughout the year. This 2.5km-long cave showcases stunning formations formed over millions of years, resembling ice-like sculptures. Next, we'll begin a hike up the canyon, lasting approximately 30 minutes, to reach the top and Veliki Vrh viewpoint. The hike is steep, so comfortable and sturdy footwear is recommended. From the viewpoint, we'll marvel at the panoramic views of the canyon and witness the majestic flight of griffon vultures. We'll take a break to refresh and indulge in a local delicacy—pancakes made of buckwheat flour filled with kajmak. Descending back to the boat, we'll cruise back to our starting point and return to our vehicle. If desired, we can stop for a lunch break at one of the local restaurants serving delicious Western Serbian cuisine. Late in the afternoon, we'll conclude our adventure and return to Zlatibor or Užice.
