This superb walking holiday offers the very best of Montenegro, a splendid mix of the magnificent Mediterranean Coast and awesome mountain scenery. We combine spectacular trekking in the Durmitor National Park, hiking along the Bear Summit Circuit, coastal walking along the Adriatic and visits to spectacular canyons. From the beautiful Croatian town of Dubrovnik, we cross into Montenegro and spend our first night at the striking 17th century, cliff-side Ostrog Monastery. Then, heading north to the Durmitor National Park, we hike the 'Bear Circuit', via Black Lake's forest trails and up to the Previja Pass (2145m) amongst high peaks where snow patches linger throughout the summer. Travelling south through the spectacular Tara Canyon we visit Moraca Monastery and stop off for a morning's walk in the 1100 metre deep Mrtvica Canyon. We spend our final 2 days in one of the most scenic landscapes in Europe on the fabulous Adriatic coast and stay in the picturesque town of Prcanj, located on the stunning fjord of UNESCO Kotor. From our base here we explore Kotor's medieval walls and beautiful architecture, before rounding off the week perfectly with a panoramic vista of the Kotor fjord below us by hiking to the viewpoint peak of Vrmac.
Is this holiday for you?
The walking on this holiday is not long or sustained. In the first half of the holiday we are based in the Durmitor National Park and here we will undertake two moderate hikes, walking the Black Lake hike and the ‘Bear Peak' circuit. Both these hikes will take between 5 and 7 hours to complete. For the second part of the holiday we are based on the Adriatic coast and here we have a series of shorter hikes which will allow time for sightseeing and swimming. Overall this is a very moderately paced walking holiday.
