10. – 28. July, 2024
Do you know about the Legend?
Maybe you have experienced it, or you have heard the story.
Its name is KOLAŠIN TANGO KAMP
By Tango Natural – organizers of Belgrade Tango Encuentro, Bratislava Tango Festival, Port of Tango, Summer Tango Retreat, and Belgrade Tango weekends.
THE ADVENTUROUS TANGO RETREAT IN THE MOUNTAINS OF MONTENEGRO!
Summer Tango Camp, Kolašin, Montenegro, is a super affordable event for all those who love combining tango, mountains, adventures, and having a fun time!
If you have ever dreamt about how one tango community, or any community, could look like in the best scenario, chances are that you can experience it in reality at the Tango Camp.
All generations, all nationalities, all dancing levels, singles, couples, families – together we create a big happy tango tribe.
During 16 days, the Tango Natural team and this charming small mountain town, host several hundreds of participants from all over the globe. You’ll get to share tango and other body-and-soul-related programs, along with many outdoor activities, fresh mountain air, good countryside food, and comfortable apartments/hotel rooms!
The whole event lasts more than 2 weeks, but you can choose when to come and when to leave – arrange your own tango retreat!
Over the years, many participants stayed for the duration of the whole Tango camp, while some of them used to join us for three-four days, to get a taste of all the various activities. The average stay was 9 days, but whatever you choose, you will regret not staying longer 😉
THE CAMP ACTIVITIES
MOUNTAINS, SUN, TANGO & FUN!
The main idea of the camp is to harmonically combine all types of tango and non-tango activities on a daily basis, with all the numerous opportunities the town of Kolašin and the surrounding nature have to offer.
One of the best things about this event is that you do not have to register for any specific program in advance. What does this mean? You book a daily pass which allows you to choose on the spot which activity you want to take, even 5 minutes before it starts. No partner needed, and no pre-registration: you just go with the flow and take the best of your day!
The standard event program
- Dynamic night milongas
- Outdoor milongas
- Tango aerobics classes
- Live music events
- Several tango classes per day (for all levels)
- Argentine folklore dances (Chacarera, Zamba…)
- Music workshops
- Yoga classes
- Meditation, bodywork, and other similar sessions
- Karaoke parties
- Nontango parties
- Dance classes and other activities for kids
- Sport climbing in the nature
- Swimming in the mountain lakes
- Hiking tours
- Horse riding
- Adventure park
Many of these activities will be available every, or almost every day. Some of them will repeat every few days. The precise program will be announced on the spot (every 3 days in advance) since the outdoor activities depend on the weather. In any case, you can count on around 10 different activities every day.
Of course, the official program is followed by many informal activities, and lots of fun, since everything happens in the small town of Kolašin, which gets conquered by hundreds of tanguer@s from all around the world.
You can enjoy all the other tourist attractions the town and its surrounding has to offer, such as rafting in the Tara river, jeep safari, speleology, etc. These are not organized by the Tango camp but by the local tourist agencies.
Leisure time! Don’t worry – you can always choose to be lazy, and in good company no less. Whether it’s taking a long coffee break, badminton and frisbee, playing cards, star-gazing, jam sessions, or just chilling in the fresh air.

DID YOU KNOW?
The town of Kolašin is situated in the zone of dense and well-preserved beech forests that are listed within the habitats of NATURA 2000 (the EU ecological network that envelops the territories important for the preservation of endangered flora and fauna). Worth noting are floodplain forests along the Tara river and its tributaries and forests of endemic pine trees (Pinus Heldreichii at Komovi mountain, Pinus peuce at Bjelasica mountain around Pešića lake)
The Biogradska Gora is a forest and a national park in Montenegro within the Kolašin municipality. It is the site of one of the last three virgin forests in Europe. The landscape is one of mountain ridges, glacial lakes, and temperate forests. It is a unique geomorphological region with diverse flora and fauna but also a place rich with cultural and historic heritage.
Tara River Canyon
The Tara River Canyon at its deepest is around 1,300 meters (4,300 feet) deep, which makes this canyon one of the deepest in the world. The canyon stretch within Montenegro is protected as a part of Durmitor National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being one of the top cleanest rivers in Europe, the Tara River is known as “The tear of Europe”.
The new highway from the capital city of Podgorica to Kolašin has provided much easier transportation from the main airport in Montenegro to our event – it will take you only around 40 minutes to get from Podgorica city center to Kolašin.
The old-road/railway distance between Podgorica (capital of Montenegro) and Kolašin is 72 km (cca 75 min journey by car/train), and the difference in the altitude between those two towns is quite large: around 900m (Podgorica’s altitude is cca 50m, Kolašin’s altitude is cca 950m). Both the old road and the railway are very interesting because they go along the Morača River Canyon with its breathtaking landscape. If you go by car, please be careful!
THE CAMP NUMBERS
Around 700 people visited the camp during its 17 days, on the last edition of the event, 2018.
People from over 30 countries worldwide visited the camp.
The average stay was 9 days out of the 17 days that the camp lasted.
More than 50 newcomers made their first tango steps at the special classes for complete beginners.
