Our Montenegro vacations
To really appreciate Montenegro’s beauty, see it from above. That’s especially true in summer, when coastal resorts are busy with tourists, while the mountain regions are cooler and less crowded. Our Montenegro vacations feature activities like kayaking on Lake Skadar and mountain biking – perfect for families and led by expert instructors who grew up in the area. For those who prefer more independence, there are self drive vacations in Montenegro or self guided walking trips around and above the Bay of Kotor, where you can avoid the cruise crowds of July and August.

About our Montenegro vacations
Montenegro vacations, adventure
You would struggle to find a country as well set-up for adventure vacations as Montenegro. Every day promises a new challenge: white water rafting on the Tara River in Durmitor National Park; kayaking on the river or in the sea; canyoning with expert instructors; hiking in the mountains, with the promise of a deserted lake to dive into once you’ve worked up a sweat. Like an airport thriller, the adventures come tumbling one after another in Montenegro – choose a small group vacation or tailor made trip where you can pick-and-mix your activities.
Montenegro vacations, walking
Walking vacations are the best way to discover Montenegro’s mountains, lakes, forests and coast. Itineraries are typically a week long, and you can either join a guided small group trip with like-minded ramblers or opt for a tailor made jaunt. Both promise a mix of challenging steep climbs and gentle downhills, so you’ll need plenty of puff as well as a head for heights. You’ll be led by passionate local guides keen to show off their country’s manifold charms – expect diverse and picturesque landscapes dotted with old fortresses, villages and waterfalls. The best time to walk is between April and October, skipping the peak summer months.
Montenegro vacations, cycling
You might look at those mountains and think, “Do I really want to cycle in Montenegro?” The answer, if you’re comfortable with a few hours in the saddle, is most definitely yes. This Balkan beauty is a relatively undiscovered cycling destination, but perfectly suited to two-wheeling it. You’ll tackle flexible routes around 50km in length each day, with long inclines so your calves and thighs won’t give you too much grief. Don’t think speed and hard slogs. Instead, self guided cycling vacations ease you from mountain to coast, forest to lake, with a refreshing beer or dip in a secluded natural pool never too far away.
Montenegro vacations, families
One advantage to Montenegro being such as small country is that you won’t be constantly plagued with calls of “Are we there yet?” from the backseat when driving around. The best option, of course, is not to drive at all and join an organised family vacation where your hosts are in charge of getting you from A to B. Families with active kids particularly suit Montenegro. There are accessible mountains everywhere, gorgeous beaches, and activities that range from rafting and kayaking to canyoning and mountain biking. This is the kind of vacation where you’re blissfully asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow every night.
Small ship cruising in Montenegro
The Bay of Kotor is one of the most popular locations to spend a few days on a small ship cruising vacation in Montenegro. This UNESCO-listed flooded river valley is studded with tiny islands and pretty little towns. You might sail aboard a gulet, perhaps exploring by bike during the day. Or if you want to see as much of the region as possible in a short time, week-long cruises of the Adriatic by luxury motor cruiser also take in parts of Croatia, Albania and Greece. The advantage of small ship cruising is that you can access little ports and bays that larger, more intrusive vessels cannot.
Montenegro vacations, multi activity
Just 20,000km² in size, Montenegro packs in enough activities to make a country six times as large blush. The beautiful coast is short, so it’s natural for multi activity vacations to head inland and upwards. Days fly by with mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, canyoning and rafting, all led by professional guides, but there’s always time to catch your breath and drink in the views. And the beauty of Montenegro is not just in its landscapes. It’s in the warmth of local people happy to share their culture, and the fact that, unlike many activity vacation destinations across Europe, Montenegro remains relatively undiscovered.
