Arrangement D2 - Canyon Nevidio ( one day)
Do you want to test your capabilities? Are you ready to walk for hours along narrow and dark corridors of the Canyon, swim in ice cold water, and descend along steep and slippery rocks? This package is foreseen only for those really determined and sure in own capabilities wanting to experience UNSEEN!
The mysterious and challenging Canyon Nevidio is the right choice for adventurers, adrenaline addicts, brave, persistent and true nature lovers. Discovered in 1965, the Nevidio Canyon is the true jewel of NP Durmitor. A 4.5 km long, 2m-3m width lies the last conquered canyon in Europe. The name itself symbolically speaks of the canyon: you can not see, which is not seen, the name reminiscent of the mysterious inaccessibility of the canyon that has long remained hidden from the human eye. The tourist attraction of invaluable goods is an adventure that is hard to resist. Those who decide to take this alpine adventure must know that once you get in and start going down the galleries, cascades and waterfalls you cannot go back – you have to go all the way to the end. It is a real challenge to enter Nevidio, pass through this part, with a narrow and deep cleft that is engraved in a small river Komarnica between the slopes of Durmitor and Vojnik.
The minimum number of participants for this arrangement is 4, and if there is less, please feel free to contact us to check if we can combine your reservation with another group of participants.
After accepting the guests at the agreed location, such as our agency Encijan in the city Foca or our camp in the very heart of the Tara canyon in the morning hours (recommended time between 9h-10h), the next is a transport to the destination.
Upon arrival at the entrance of the Canyon, short break and for coffee and preparations for the adventure. All participants are fully equipped (neoprene suits *long johns and long sleeves jackets*, life wests and helmets). After short safety briefing and short climbing course, we enter the Canyon led by experienced and certified professional guides (all guides are members of the Mountain rescue service). First 300-400m of the Canyon are not so demanding, so it is a good opportunity to adopt to surroundings and of course it is a last opportunity for ones to think again Afterwards, In the front of us there is a most demanding part of the Canyon, with serious obstacles, cascades and rapids. During next 2-3 hours we swim, dive, trough corridors and “pool” that Mother nature has been shaping for centuries, and we have opportunity to see real Nature’s breath taking work of art. In the middle of our adventure, at the very heart of the Canyon, we make short energy break and try to regain strength with some energy snacks (figs, almonds, dried grapes…) Blood sugar level at this point will be very low due to all adrenaline that runs through our blood vessels. After the break, with additional strength and encouraged by experience we already had, we continue on. In the next 1-2hrs we have the same “mixture” of climbing, jumping, diving to whirlpools, descending down the slippery rocks with or without ropes and of course with all adrenaline present, finally we reach the exit of the Canyon. Upon “escape” from the Canyon and lunch in nearby ethno restaurant we go back to our base destination.
