Daily itinerary

Day 1: Pick up and arrival

You will be picked up from the airport and driven to your first accommodation at an altitude of almost 1,100 meters. It goes straight to the Povlen Mountains, an eastern part of the Dinaric Alps. The drive to the village of Taor - a settlement that has existed since the Bronze Age - takes about two and a half hours and upon arrival a warm dinner awaits you. Afterward, there is plenty of time to familiarize yourself with the surroundings and your four-legged companions.

Day 2: It starts

After breakfast, the first day of your riding tour begins. You ride from Taor to Kostojevići. Your path leads you through raspberry fields, meadows rich in herbs, and dense forests. Steep paths are rewarded with breathtaking views where time and space meet. The wild nature awakens a unique feeling and lets you feel a certain lightness in the body.

Day 3: Over stick and over stone

After spending the night on a cozy farm and a hearty breakfast, you go for Kostojevići by Bajina Bašta further. You ride along the Drina River, one of the most historic rivers in the region. The Drina was the border between the Illyrians and the Celts, between Rome and Byzantium, between Christians and pagans, and between the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires. The river radiates a timeless energy that, in combination with the serenity of the horses, lets your soul relax.

Day 4: In paradise

On the third day, you reach the Tara National Park, known for its exotic coniferous forests and rare conifer species such as the Serbian spruce (lat. Picea omorika) or snake-skin pine (lat. Pinus heldreichii). But there are also various animal species to be found there, such as the eagle owl, golden eagle, wolf, brown bear, lynx, griffon vulture, as well as lots of otters and Martens. The mountain Tara is in archaeology known as the oldest reference of metalworking, dated to 3,600 years BC.

Day 5: Mokra Gora

Today, you ride through the Tara National Park and are seduced by the smells and sounds of the coniferous forests. On the way, you will see small mountain huts, most of which were built by only a few men, and equipped with the most essential tools. But you will not only meet old buildings, but also different people - real highlanders, a bit sparse and distant in their appearance, but after initial acquaintance very warm and after getting to know each other better, you will discover more and more of the variety of their personality.

Day 6: The return

You slowly leave Tara and return to Taor via Se č a Reka. At this stage, nature gives you wonderful views of countless distant valleys and mountains. When the sky is clear, the view extends to Durmitor, the highest mountain in Montenegro - also a national park that belongs to the southern part of the Dinaric Alps.

Day 7: Last section

After the village of Seča Reka, the next stop will be at the Taor water springs. Many small arteries of water arise from the porous limestone tuff - in winter the water is rather warm and in summer quite cool, on hot summer days a glass of cold spring water gives you a very satisfying feeling. In earlier centuries, there were around 20 active water mills along the water sources, which milled rye, barley, and oats at full capacity.

Most of them have disappeared, but a small watermill has remained that can transport you a little back in time. The freshly prepared food and the miller’s good mood underline the atmosphere and lifestyle of the highlands. After a visit to the local miller, you go up to the initial farm, where you enjoy a dinner with local fruit brandy, with which you can share your impressions and ideas.

Day 8: Return to the airport

After a satisfying breakfast, you start your journey to the airport.

Location

The tour will take place in Serbia. “Šargan Eight” is the most attractive tourist museum railway in Europe and is considered a unique construction masterpiece in the world among the narrow-gauge railway lines. It is a part of the old railway line that ran from Užice to Sarajevo and was launched in 1925. The construction of the railway immediately allowed ready access to the rest of the world for many mountain villages. It closed down in 1974 due to its state of disrepair and mounting losses.

But starting in 1999, it has undergone a slow process of renovation and expansion, mainly thanks to the efforts of the villagers themselves. The most interesting feature of this railway route, which earned it fame and the name “The Šargan Eight”, is the remarkable feat of engineering which spans a height of 300 meters with an extraordinary loop in the shape of a figure “8”. The 15-kilometer line from Mokra Gora to the Šargan-Vitasi station takes one down a zigzag route through tunnels and over 10 bridges with impressive views.
