  • Make a memorable photo of „The Gate of Podrinje“ viewpoint
  • Admire a world famous „The House in the Drina river“
  • Take a ride on the historical, scenic „Šargan Eight“ train
  • See the magnificent griffon vultures during the Uvac Lake boat ride


Day 1: Our first stop is a world-famous attraction, “The House on Drina” – an isolated house made of logs on a river stone. After a photo stop and refreshments, we will continue our trip to the famous Šargan Eight. A unique narrow-gauge railway nowadays serves only for amusement. We will pass and stop at several viewpoints during our ride, from which one can see fabulous views over Mokra Gora. Authentic cars with wooden seats, wood-burning stoves, and characteristic rattling sounds will take us back to 1925 when this railway was put into operation. The next stop is Wooden Town. The famous director Emir Kusturica (two times Palme d’Or in Cannes winner) decided to build it during the shooting of his film “Life is a Miracle.” He chose to convey ruined wooden chalets from the mountain’s slopes, restore them, and form a new settlement. Overnight: Zlatibor Day 2: Breakfast. Departure from Zlatibor in the morning and transfer to Uvac Special Natural Reserve. After only one hour of driving, we’ll find ourselves in the pure beauty of Uvac Canyon. For centuries, the Uvac River has been making its way through the mountains, leaving deep meanders and creating caves that attract many tourists. If we’re lucky, we’ll get a chance to see the mighty griffon vulture, whose population in Uvac is the largest in Europe. The bird’s wingspan is about 3 m, and it can weigh up to 11 kg, thus making it the largest bird in Serbia. We will take a boat trip and follow the river as it twists and turns through the impressive landscape. We’ll not leave the Reserve before taking some fantastic photos from the viewpoints overlooking the canyon. After the stunning Uvac Canyon experience, it is time for lunch at a local restaurant (not included). Transfer to Belgrade, where we will arrive in the evening. Hotel drop-offs. End of the tour. Important note 1: If you want to see the viewpoints, there are around 25 minutes of hiking uphill. So, it’s not recommended for older, overweight, or people with any walking disability. Another option is to sit in the boat while the rest of the group returns from the photo session at the viewpoints. Important note 2: In case of bad weather or insufficient water level for the cruise to be conducted, we’ll replace the cruise with a jeep ride to the beautiful viewpoints.
