Between the mountains and the sea: Škurda Canyon
This is where you make sure that the "hunting legends" about canyoning are, in fact, true!
The Škurda Canyon is one of Kotor's many attractions. Škurda is a submerged river that springs from Lovćen and flows into Kotor Bay. Thecanyon lies only a few hundred meters from Kotor's Old Town, so you don’t have to go "far from civilization" to experience its wonder. It begins 200 meters below the Krstac Pass, at the foot of Lovćen, and ends near the Old Town's walls, just below the old Austro-Hungarian dam.
Top experience for climbers
Prepare yourself for challenging terrain that requires technical expertise, including knowing how to use ropes and other mountaineering equipment. Picturesque moss-covered cliffs will make it a challenge for you to descend and move along.
Curious about the terrain's accessibility and passability?
The canyon has already created "anchorages," which are used to climb the canyon's cliff. 26 waterfalls, ranging in length from 3-42 meters, add to the breathtaking scenery. Cascades, swimming pools, rocks for climbing, and narrow, jagged crevices are also features of the canyon's route. Embark on your adventure with caution!
The canyon's interesting inhabitants
Even in the winter, the water is warm and the air temperature is high, unlike other Montenegrin canyons. The slippery rocks and tubs are home to a multitude of frogs who keep you company throughout the route, no matter the season.
Before making any plans, check the accessibility of the canyon during the time you wish to visit. For the most part, the canyon remains passable all year, except during periods of heavy rain. It is difficult to finish the tour in one day, but there are several early-exit points, if you decide to finish your trip earlier.
