The canyon is protected as part of Durmitor National Park. It is also an ecological biosphere reserve (UNO). Its numerous waterfalls (about 40) and caves (more than 80) as well as white-water rafting are among the main tourist attractions of the area. The safest rafting period is from 1st July to 15th September.
