Kayak fest Tara was the first international Whitewater Kayaking festival in Montenegro and its region. Over the course of 7 days of the festival, nature and white water enthusiasts will be able to enjoy in the kayak competition, kayak training, music program, Eco Run and the beauty of rivers and other natural gems of Montenegro. The aim of this festival is to promote white water kayaking, but also the natural beauty of Montenegro.

Our rivers are among the most beautiful ones in Europe because of their purity and incredible mixture of turquoise with emerald color in the deeper sources. The impressive landscapes, magnificent canyons, crystal clear water with wild rapids and whirlpools will make paddling a memorable experience for every kayaker. Montenegro has over 15 sections for paddling in classes 1-5, which makes it a unique paradise for kayakers worldwide.
