Wood rafting, also known as log rafting or timber rafting, is a historical method of transporting logs or timber downstream using rafts made of logs. This traditional practice was commonly employed in the past to move large quantities of logs from forests to mills or other destinations.

Wood rafting typically involved binding logs together using various techniques, such as lashing them with ropes or attaching them with wooden pegs. The resulting raft would then be floated down a river or other body of water, with workers guiding and maneuvering it using poles or oars.

Timber rafting was an important industry in many regions with abundant forests and rivers, such as North America and Europe, during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It played a significant role in the transportation of logs to areas where they would be processed into lumber or other wood products.

With the advancements in transportation and infrastructure, wood rafting has largely been replaced by more modern and efficient methods of log transportation, such as trucks and barges. However, it remains a part of historical and cultural heritage in some areas, and there may still be instances of wood rafting as a tourist attraction or for traditional purposes in certain regions and Tara river is definitely one of the very rare and most beautiful for this kind of activity.

Our program includes almost 80km of most interesting part Tara river, till the very end – to the mouth with the Drina river at border of Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
