The Packrafter

The Packrafter


This full day adventure along the Komarnica River is only available with Montenegro Expeditions. Join ME for 14 kms of spectacular whitewater packrafting down the River Komarnica with an epic canyon backdrop! The Packrafter will give you an opportunity to connect with one of the least known kayakable rivers in Europe in complete solitude! 

Komarnica 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.

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.


  • Excitement-filled packrafting down one of Europe’s least explored rivers
  • Solitude in complete wilderness of the canyon
  • Stopovers at spectacular springs, waterfalls and beaches
  • Contribute to anti-dam activism
  • Two hour boat cruise along Piva Lake
  • Delicious dinner in a traditional Montenegrin restaurant

Prior to setting off you will be given a full safety briefing. From there on, it’s 14km of pure whitewater fun and excitement!

Part 4: Piva Lake boat cruise

The packrafting ends at the mouth of the river where Komarnica meets Piva Lake. A boat will be waiting for us here and we will embark on an approximately 2 hour cruise of the lake.

Part 5: Dinner

Following the cruise, we will make our way to the restaurant at the Etno Selo Izlazak, a 10 min drive away, for some delicious traditional Montenegrin food. It’s is where our adventure will end.

However, if you are staying in Montenegro for longer, you can always join us on another one 😊
