Tara River (Montenegro). 'It’s hard to get a decent view of the beautiful Tara Canyon – its tree-lined walls, up to 1300m high, tend to get in the way. The effect is most impressive from the water, which goes some way to explaining why rafting is such a popular activity. You’ll hit a few rapids but outside of April and May it’s a relatively gentle experience, gliding over crystalline waters through a landscape untouched by human hands.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/montenegro
