A via ferrata is an Italian term which means ‘iron path’. Via ferrata is a protected climbing route, built with a steel cable rail fixed to the rock, metal steps, ladders, suspension bridges and zip wires.
The word defines both the route and the outdoor activity, which consists on progressing through the viaferrata by using a harness clipped onto the wire. Half-way between scrambling and rock climbing, via ferratas allow non-expert climbers to reach high altitudes in a safe way, using minimum equipment.
Via ferratas are a great way of exploring the mountains. This sport does not necessarily requires previous mountain experience, but you will need to have a good physical condition and no fear of heights.
A via ferrata trip requires good weather conditions and that means avoiding rain, snow and ice. Summer, spring and even autumn months are the best time to practice this activity.
A via ferrata is a route marked out by metal rails and rungs embedded into the mountain. It’s easy to follow and a great way to tackle otherwise impassable cliffs and ledges.

One of the most beautiful locations for Via Ferrata which we realized in NP Durmitor on the mountain range called Sedlo (saddle)
Via ferrata starts at an altitude of 2000m and ends at 2198m A great number of peaks can can be seen from Durmitor. One of them is Mount Vojnik. A great view from the rock called Uvita greda can’t be forgotten. Wild animals such as boars, hares, wild goats are just a part of a wild life which is visible if you go on Via Ferrata. Except your own sneakers J, each participant get alpine equipment. And is guided by experienced guides.
If you are on the Adriatic coast or you travelling to Kotor, via ferrata is unavoidable.
Via ferrat Kotor has two tracks, one of them is medium difficulty and the second is adapted to children and climbers in unfit conditions. Via Ferrata Kotor is 180m long. A beautiful view on the bay of Kotor and San Giovani fortress in a combination with sport activities and high adrenaline.

How it all began
Encijan Adventure Team began offering whitewater rafting through the Tara River Canyon to customers looking for adventure back in 2002. Very few team members, as founders of the company, set out on a simple mission to provide the opportunity to the adventure seekers to experience the awe-inspiring natural wonder of the Canyon on Tara River rafting trips.
Prospective guides for Encijan Adventure team spend five years minimum perfecting their Tara River rafting skills under the guidance of veteran trip leaders before earning the position of “Rafting Skipper”. New guides, or guides in training, are known as “Skipper Interns” and it takes a very special person, full of passion, to be successful on the river and work in the natural wilderness of the Tara River Canyon.
