The most famous and higly appreciated rafting/kayak regatta in Bosnia & Herzegovina is the one organized each summer on Una river. This precious, breathtaking river is under protection of the government and one of the possible National Parks of the future, more ecologically aware Bosnia&Herzegovina.

I couldn’t find any information about whom to contact, so I pressume it’s one of those Bosnian-specific Just-Show-Up-At-The-Place events. Tourist agencies should have some contacts though.
