Tara River Rafting- a combination of adventure and sport in an active vacation…

That it is really that way-with only one rafting trip through Tara canyon and its „foamy and boiling rapids”, your blood will boil, and with all the adrenalin, you can alive and awaken within yourself that long time forgotten and deep buried spirit of adventure that we all carry within us.

Rafting is not an adventure that can be taken for granted, especially on Tara River, which is recognized as one of the best in the world for rafting alongside to Colorado or Zambezi rivers. In May 2009, Tara River hosted the World Rafting Championship, which suggests the capacity of our local beauty.

The level of difficulty and danger, as our skippers like to say, on Tara river is from 3 to 5 (out of max 5), and may vary depending on time the of year and level of water, reaching top levels in March, April and May when snow start to melt down from the mountains Durmitor and Komovi; during this time rafting is the best but also the most extreme. During this period we recommend rafting not for „brave ones” only, but also for professional rafters or people with previous rafting experience.


For those who want to experience all aforesaid, we have prepared different packages, and every trip is at first place safe and accommodating your personal needs, particularly for adventurists who seek a rafting adventure for the first time.

Tara rafting 2We use rubber rafting boats made specifically for white water. These are high quality boats with an 8-10 person capacity, operated by our experienced and licensed skippers. All our skippers have passed many trainings and are IRF (International Rafting Federation) certified. They have had countless rafting tours Tara river and know every rock and rapid. For our skippers, rafting is at first place a pleasure and way of life, and after is a job.

We initiate every tour with a half an hour briefing to introduce you to the rafting program, what to expect on the river and how to react on the boat at specific moments. Following, we will start the rafting and our adventure. But, of course, if we want to enjoy all of this, and if we want our tours to be safe, we need proper rafting equipment.

During the summer tourist season, the water temperature is 11-12 °C. Neoprene suits and raft boots in order to protect and keep you warm. We also use helmets and quality life jackets, fully preparing you to stream down the river and her “foamy and boiling rapids”.

Rafting never lasts the same amount of time, and depends on the time period and month, as well as the level, speed, and part of the river being traveled. It is also dependent on the people on the boat, because every rafter is an active participant in this sport; together with skipper, paddles and contributes to the complete journey…

Tara rafting 3Each and every rafting tour on Tara River is not the same. For example, the most attractive part of the river, which is approximately 20 kilometers long, from Camp Encijan to Scepan Polje, in April and May lasts 30-45 minutes and in July and August lasts 3-4 hours.
It`s up to you to decide when you want experience the adventure…
