/ Montenegro

Nevidio Canyon is about 2 km long and is characterized by a large number of cascades up to 5 m, strait of less than 1 m, large and small rapids. Most of the canyon is in perpetual shape, due to the vertical wall high up to 400 m and the sun’s rays cannot reach the bottom.

The best season starts in July (if the water level is lower, it can be earlier) and ends in September (if weather conditions permit, the season may be slightly extended). Passing through the canyon in spring and late autumn months is not recommended because of the large risk of flood and high water.

Canyon is being passed by an average of 2-3 hours. On the way out of the canyon there is marked path, which can be passed on foot and it needs of about an hour.

Rafting on Lim is organized since 2000 when the first mountain and rafting clubs in Prijepolje established Lim regatta, which is traditionally held every year in late May or early June, with the participation of a large number of rafters from Montenegro, Serbia and other countries.

Rafting on Lim is really something special, it can’t be described in words and the feeling can’t be transferred in the photo. Come once and you will always be coming back!!!
