Tour description

Trip to the upper Drina Lake and the mouth of Lim is a tour that includes a trip from Višegrad to the Upper Drina Lake with 2 to 3 hours in water in natural surroundings. The lake stretches forty kilometers along the Podrinje and passes through the municipalities of Višegrad, Novo Goražde and Rudo.
The Višegrad lake is an artificially accumulated lake created by the construction of the Višegrad Hydro-power plant on the Drina river. The lake's surface is about 1,070 hectares in size. The Lim river is the largest tributary of the Drina and on its way to the mouth it passes through Plav, Prijepolje, Bijelo Polje, Berane, Priboj and Rudo. With our guides visitors will be able to go 1 km upstream the Lim river. The Upper Drina Lake is the most ideal location for swimming on the Drina because during the summer months the water is still and its surface layer is warm and pleasant for swimming, but if you dive for 1.5 m under the cold Drina is waiting.

If you want to enjoy a light pace with sunbathing and swimming together with the friends, this tour is ideal for you.

"Sit on top" kayaks are safer than the regular ones and with our guide's instructions the possibility of falling is minimal. All participants get a safety vest.

Spend your summer in Višegrad, we have our own sea!
