Diamond in the Rough

Summary

River Komarnica is one of the least known kayakable rivers in Montenegro. Unlike Tara River, Komarnica is characterised by complete absence of commercial tours, guaranteeing solitude in one of Montenegro’s most beautiful canyons! The river is made up of class II and class III, with an occasional class IV rapid in April. It is friendly to beginners, but at the same time, there are plenty of rapids that even seasoned kayakers would find exciting. Prior to embarking on this amazing paddle you will have a chance to undergo a short, practical, packraft course. 

Join ME on this unique adventure and packraft down 14 km of undisturbed wilderness. By joining us on this adventure you will contribute to the conservation of Komarnica. We will donate 10% of the profits from each tour to an NGO fighting to prevent dam construction on this river.
