General info 

Canyoning is an outdoor adventure sport in which you follow a natural water course of rivers.  For descents we use a variety of techniques that may include activities such as walking, jumping, abseiling, caving, sliding down natural slopes, and swimming in water.  

Canyon Škurda is located just north of the town of Kotor. The Škurda canyon is surrounded by impressive cliffs and stone city walls, dating back to the Austro-Hungarian era descending all the way from Mount Lovćen to the San Giovanni fortress above Kotor Old Town.

Key words: Škurda canyon, canyoning in Montenegro, canyoning tours Montenegro, canyoning in Kotor, what to do in Kotor 



Overview of the tour 



  • Approach the starting point of the canyon, leading along the north edge of San Giovanni, along the serpentine pathways to reveal a magnificent panorama of the butterfly-shaped Boka Bay.
  • Continuing along narrow tracks and an ascent along the river leads us to the canyon entrance, where we begin our adventure. The canyon is adorned with a number of pools and as many as 26 waterfalls, spanning from a 3-42m drop!
    The Škurda River runs almost perfectly vertically down into the Bay of Kotor and has carved an intricate channel with smooth, striated rock faces on three sides, and sometimes four as the canyon becomes a vertical tunnel at some points.
  • Your guides are equipped with ropes and the appropriate gear, so that abseiling, swimming, jumping and experiencing of this unique environment can begin.
  • You will explore the way Škurda river was created over millions of years, enjoy breathtaking views, expose yourself to the rugged terrain, feel distant from civilization and yet you will exit the canyon almost directly in the old town of Kotor!
