Vrbas River, Banja Luka

(4.5/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Hike, camp, fish, and raft at Vrbas River, which is named after the numerous weeping willow trees that adorn its banks. The river canyon is a good place for water adventures, such as kayaking, boat races, bridge jumping, and parachute jumping. Take the hiking and walking trails if you'd like bird's-eye views of the river below. Try to spot some hawks, eagles, and falcons, which live in the canyon. You'll be able to spot the highlands from here with many old villages that offer a stark contrast to the beat of the Banja Luka city center. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Banja Luka holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Vrbas River and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
