We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne

Memorable parts? Stunning views and dramatic scenery each day; the most memorable was probably walking down the hillside near Kotor with the backdrop of the mountains and the bay in front. Tips? Try to arrive early on the day of travel to orientate and do the first walk. Be self-sufficient - we did not see any other walkers one day and only 2 another and a similar number of cafes! Carry LOTS of water - we ran out when one descent took much longer than expected. Local benefits? Clearly... (more)Veronica Warner

Lucy put together for us a 50-mile walking itinerary for the next six days which started with Angel leading us on a personal 2-hour hike to see the local landmarks. The schedule then...
