    What to Expect
    Challenge yourself as you go kayaking through the biggest rivers in Serbia, Sava and Danube. During the tour you can have fun kayaking and learn about the surrounding landscape.

    Great War island is a river island in Belgrade located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers. The main feature on the island is the canal of Veliki Galijaš. In time, the canal was cut off from the Danube and effectively turned into a lake, with an area of 0.24 km² . Currently some two-thirds of the island are used as a nature preserve for 196 bird species, many of which are endangered.

    The island gained its name because throughout history, Great War Island was a strategic point for the conquest or defense of Belgrade. Though officially uninhabited, almost a dozen of people live in small shacks in the island's interior. The contrast of wilderness and urban environment will be something what you won't forget.

    The arrangements were simple - we had a choice of times and decided to go towards the end of the day, after the burning sun had faded. We joined a nice group of people and were guided by Vlada, who willingly took us under his wing with very little fuss. After a short beak,
