Include Bar in your top destination and in the hinterland of Bar Riviera discover one of the 5 attractive canyons of Mount Rumija. Within 10 km of the coastline and urban Bar, there is the untouched nature of the five canyons – Medjureč, Rikavac, Vruća Rijeka, Nikezića creek and Perin stream.

    I and friend of mine are ladies in early 60s, fit, but not experienced in canyoneering. We booked Rikavac tour with Ave tours and had great adventure! Everything was perfect from pick up to drop off, but special shout out to our guides Darko and Bozo, whose demeanor, knowledge, encouraging helped us to forget fears and ride on adrenalin. Beautiful, beautiful small canyon.
