Ibar rafting

FaceBook  Twitter  

ibar-raftingYou should use all the conveniences of the river Ibar in the spring and go with Alpha Team on Ibar rafting. Ibar is the nearest to Belgrade, and the starting point, Usce, is only 200 km away. The river section is 24 km long, from Usce to Maglic, and the water level in April is such that it can be passed in 90 minutes.

A two-day adventure on Ibar includes a visit to the monastery of Studenica where Stefan Nemanja, Grand Prince of the medieval Serb state of Raska, was buried.

After that, we’ll take you to see Maglic, a XIII century fortress in the Ibar gorge. Beside the rafting you will be able to enjoy the delicious local cuisine and homemade brandy. Believe me when I say there’s nothing better than roasted meat, homemade corn bread, cheese and cream after spending the entire day white water rafting.
We offer you a private accommodation for the overnight stay, but should you insist we can organize a hotel accommodation at the favorable prices. Should you be interested for this option, we kindly ask of you to mention that to us when signing in, because it is mostly a one day tour. For the 1st of May we can suggest the traditional “Early rising” which includes one-day of rafting adventure with no overnight stay, returning to Belgrade the same day. On the rapids of “Grmcic” you can try out body-rafting, meaning you go down the river wearing your life vests, which is a very special experience for all the participants.

“Veseli spust” (Jolly descend)

“Veseli spust” is an event that has been held successfully for 20 years on the river Ibar with the great number of participants. The main features of this event are thousands of people on the river, the trumpet players, roasted pork and lamb, positive energy, going down the river on the improvised rafts made of anything that can float. It is the event that is always carefully planned and we are proud to be a part of it and each year more and more people are participating.
