Itinerary

We begin from our meeting point at 7:10 am.After 20 minutes we take our first photo stop at the outskirts of the baroque town of Perast, where you’ll be able to capture perspectives of two famous islands,Our Lady of the Rocks and Saint George .After our brief stop in Perast we´ll continue our North Montenegro tour towards the higher elevations of Montenegro. As we begin the drive up into the surrounding mountains, a reflective panorama of the Bay of Kotor will reveal itself below.We continue our trip towards Nikšić,the second biggest city in Montenegro. Driving through the slopes of Orijen Mountain, we pass the small picturesque village Grahovo, surrounded by classic mountainous countryside of Montenegro.Just before we arrive in Nikšić , we’ll take another photo stop at the beautiful Salty Lake (Slano Jezero), one of two big lakes that surround this historical city and then we’ll take a much-needed breakfast break, enjoying tasty local food and drink.From Nikšić we continue towards the Mountain of Durmitor, where dramatic rocky peaks rise high into the sky.Our next stop is the Đurđevića Tara Bridge,the highest in Europe when built in 1940.During this 30 minute break,don’t miss your chance to try-out the longest zip-line in the region,crossing the river from a bird’s-eye perspective!The Tara is not only the longest river in Montenegro,it also has created the deepest canyon in Europe and 2nd deepest in the WORLD! It’s almost 2 pm and the perfect time to stop for a lunch break, so our next destination is Žabljak, the highest town in Balkans.This popular tourist winter and ski center hasn’t lost its traditional countryside spirit.Comprised of many mountain houses with steeply-angled roofs extending to ground level;small wooden restaurants and bars; and sheep and cows wandering about.After enjoying excellent local food, we proceed our North Montenegro tour straight to the hidden jewel of Durmitor National Park, the majestic Black Lake.For a full experience of this pristine and wild environment, we’ll take a one hour break to hike around the 4 km trail around the lake,to go swimming (conditions allowing),or to simply relax and breathe in the fresh mountain air while enjoying the view of Bear’s Peak, rising majestically above the thick pine forest.Time to hit the road towards the most visited spiritual and mysterious place in Montenegro – Ostrog Monastery.Nearing sunset, we’ll begin our ascent up the narrow and winding road, enjoying spectacular views of the highly-perched monastery in the effects of the setting sun.Ostrog was built in 1667 by the monk, Vasilije Ostroški,who lived and died there. His relics are now preserved and considered miraculous. This place gives a good insight into the history of the conservative Orthodox tradition of Montenegro.Around 6 pm, amidst the surreal influences of the setting sun, it’ll be time to sum up our impressions and return back to our beloved seasidebase – Kotor, where we’ll arrive around 8.30 pm.

Wasn't sure what to expect but this trip surpassed our expectations and is great value for money! The minibus is air conditioned and comfortable - important considerations as the tour covers 450km. It's a long day, but broken up by stops along the way. Breakfast...More
