Rafting is all of the above and much more that your own personal experience will bring to this adventure. For inexperienced swimmers, rafting is a huge challenge and a personal triumph. For photography lovers, rafting is an opportunity to capture unforgettable shots of natural beauty from completely atypical perspectives. For people who spend a lot of time in the office, rafting is a sobering primal contact with nature and a kind of regeneration of all senses.

The Tara is 146 kilometers long and according to the International River Category scale, it is rated 4A/5 for rafting, which places it at the very top of the world’s most attractive rafting rivers, along with the Zambezi in Africa and the Colorado in the States. What makes the Tara so suitable for rafting is the fact that it has an average gradient of 4.5 m per kilometer on its course with wild rapids and cascades. Moreover, its light blue water is crystally clear and it is especially impressive that you can actually drink it while rafting, because it is safe to drink throught its course.
The duration of the Tara rafting tour mainly depends on the weather conditions, i.e. on the water level. If the previous winter was with a lot of snow, the river rafting adventure will certainly be more exciting, because the water level is much higher. You can count that in May the water level is the highest, and then the rafting lasts approximately 60 minutes. In August or September, when the water level is much lower, the rafting can take up to 4 hours. Those real adrenaline addicts will surely choose to go rafting in May, when its water level is the highest and when the rapids are wavy.
Rafting boats are made of extremely resistant multilayered rubber and have multiple separate air chambers. The length of the boat can vary from 3 to 6 meters. What distinguishes a modern rafting boat from the old type is that it is incomparably lighter and has shallow draft, which makes it much more mobile and easier to operate. In addition to the dinghy, rafting equipment includes a neoprene suit, neoprene boots, a helmet, a paddle as well as a lifejacket. Neoprene clothing is necessary for safety, but also for the pleasant and comfortable experience. The water temperature ranges from about 7 to 15 degrees in the summer, so the soft neoprene effectively protects you from the cold keeping your body temperature, so that you can feel comfortable and safe during the adventure.
Each boat has its guide, a popular “skipper” who is steering and guiding the raft through the river rapids. Their role is multiple and in addition to being top rowers, they are also excellent connoisseurs of wild waters. Most of them grew up with Tara and Drina and are well versed in every area, rapier, bay or waterfall, so they are unique guides through the adventure and thanks to them nothing will miss you which is worth seeing or photographing. They are top professionals who have received all the necessary training and are certified by the International Rafting Federation – IRF. The connoisseurs are in their business and will make your descent as safe and fun as possible. With them, in a very interesting and unusual way, you will experience unforgettable moments during the rafting and quite opposite feelings that in one minute can go from hysterical euphoria to absolute calm.
