Montenegro Walking & Trekking Holidays
Montenegro is bordered by Croatia to the north, Bosnia & Herzegovina to the northeast, Serbia to the east and Albania to the south. It was only in 2006 that this small country became independent again. The courage and indomitable spirit of the Montenegrins is only matched by their warmth, hospitality and infectious pride.
The tiny country of Montenegro is incredibly diverse for its size. Infact due to its concertina of mountains, some reaching as high as 2,522m, the surface area of the country is larger than you might expect! The climate varies from Mediterranean on the coast, to alpine conditions in the mountainous north. Our Montenegro walking holidays have been organised to depart during the the spring and autumn; these months are particularly good for walking in the National Parks, of which there are five, making up 10% of the country. According to conservation reports, it is possible to find bears, wolves, lynx and jackals in the wilder parts of the country.
Most tourists spend time in the Venetian-era coastal towns of Kotor and Budva, where there are attractive stone buildings, family-run restaurants, a wide choice of hotels and nightlife. Of the 277km Adriatic coastline, 73km are beach, and the mild Mediterranean climate means that bathing, diving, sailing and watersports are popular. Skadar Lake, 40km inland, is the largest lake in the Balkans, and is rich in flora and fauna, making it a paradise for ornithologists and fishermen.
We offer three superb walking and trekking holidays in Montenegro and neighbouring Albania and Kosovo. Our moderate graded walking holiday Montenegro Lakes & Mountains explores the spectacular coastline, primeval forests and plunging gorges of Montenegro. Whilst our Accursed Mountains Trek, and our Three Peaks of the Balkans trek, criss-cross the mountain borders on foot, amidst the stunning alpine scenery and ancient trails of this beautiful and little-known corner of Europe.
