Montenegro /meaning Black Mountain/ is beautiful tiny country of South-eastern Europe, and the Central Mediterranean country of rich natural and architectural and cultural heritage. Montenegro features diversity of stunning landscapes and climates, and well preserved natural environment of “black” mountains, awesome canyons, blue Adriatic sea and green blossoming meadows and idyllic lakes. Montenegro is country where the mountains descend almost directly into the sea, creating a surreal atmosphere and one of the undiscovered gems of the former Yugoslavia. Nowhere else can you find so much natural wealth, beauty, mild beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers, and gorgeous mountains in such a compact area as in Montenegro. In the morning you can wake up along the beautiful Adriatic coast, have lunch on the banks of Skadar Lake, and enjoy an evening walk in the Montenegrin mountains. Montenegro has wonderful coast to the Adriatic Sea, and borders Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast and Albania to the southeast. Total surface of Montenegro is 13,812 km2 and its sea coast is 293 km long comprising 117 beaches. It includes Boka Kotorska Bay, one of the ten most beautiful bays in the world and it is the most southerly fyord in Europe. Montenegro is a still rather unknown place in the southern part of the Balkans often referred to as the “Hidden Pearl of the Mediterranean“.
A fascinating Montenegrin mountain world with over 150 peaks higher than 2,000 meters, with sleepy villages and peaceful high mountain pastures reminding of times long past are awaiting adventurers. The whole territory of Montenegro is actually a big national park, which encompasses few national parks, many mountains, rivers, canyons, lakes and the Adriatic seaside. Also, Montenegro offers enjoyment in many outstanding panoramas of incredible nature beauties. With four national parks of widely contrasting characteristics Montenegro is real natural treasure to be explored. Challenging hiking routes of fantastically diverse National Parks that are all easy to reach inspire every visitor. For individualists, Montenegro is a country of natural adventure which has become very rare in Europe: safe and free, often sparsely populated and unspoiled. You will meet few people on most trekking trails, in some regions water is scarce and along some routes accommodations are still rare. But the choice of places to stay is steadily increasing all over the country – mountain huts, apartments, bungalows and private rooms as well as hotels of all categories. Individual mountain-bike tours in Montenegro are still reserved for the genuine adventurer with a quest for the wild, looking for the challenges of Montenegro’s mountain world, with the tent in the backpack on his own or with an escort jeep.
In addition, thanks to our wonderful partheship with Montenegrin partners, we organize and arrange for visitors to Montenegro extra activities as going with a guide to the local market to learn about the foods and specialities of the region, picking their own mussels for lunch in the Bay of Kotor or a visit to a preserved stone village on the mountain above Tivat to learn about the local culture, history of the village and the people who live there. This village made a deal amongst all the inhabitants – no-one would sell their properties for foreigners. It has now become a heritage site. One of the local guides has a family house in the village and it is very authentic and interesting as well as having stunning views. Another very interesting visit is to a local olive oil producers – family run, taste the olive oil, enjoy some homecooked food and learn about the process involved in producing olive oil in the traditional way !
