Here it’s easy to spend all day meditating on the vastness and beauty of the world.
A Deep Dive
The Chedi Luštica Bay sits at the mouth of the Tara River Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At its deepest point it runs 4,300 feet into the earth. The Tara River that formed it also carved out sandy beaches, cliffs, caves, and rock formations. It is the home to feisty animals like wild goats, roe deer, and wild boar.
Guests at The Chedi Luštica Bay get to do more than look at this phenomenon from above; they can dive right in on a luxury rafting excursion. The experience lasts twelve hours, and each step of the way leaves participants enraptured. The day starts with a hearty breakfast on the banks of the canyon; next is an off-roading adventure that gets the heart pounding and the mind racing. After that is the main event: four hours on a raft soaring through the most attractive rapids on the Tara River. The guide pauses at the most enticing spots including waterfalls and swimming pools.
Rafts roll up in Šćepan Polje, a traditional village at the crossroads of Montenegro, Bosnia, and Herzegovina. There is lunch with the locals, people who have lived in this miraculous landscape their entire lives and have wisdom to share from it. While the day has already been fulfilling, it’s not over. The drive back to the hotel offers breathtaking views of the country’s most photogenic scenes.
