Kayak Fest, started in 2016, marks the first international whitewater kayak festival in the Balkan region. This rugged mountainous area with its clear blue and driving white waters offers the perfect place for kayak lovers to gather to celebrate nature, friendships, and adrenaline-filled competition. Montenegro has a diversity of kayaking water available with 15 different sections varying in difficulty from Class I – V in its gorgeous waterways. Kayakers of all levels are therefore welcome at the second annual Kayak Fest Tara.

Competitive categories include three disciplines: head2head, sprint, and down-river.
