Full description

See the picturesque countryside of Montenegro on a guided day trip from Kotor, Budva, Tivat, or Herceg Novi with optional hotel transfers. Admire clear lakes, spectacular coasts, the famous Ostrog Monastery, and more.

Take your first photo stop shortly after leaving Kotor and capture the beauty of two nearby islands, Our Lady of the Rocks and Saint George. Move to higher elevations for a second photo stop above Risan Bay.

Continue to Nikšić, the second biggest city in Montenegro, and make another stop for pictures at the artificial Salty Lake. Take a much-needed breakfast break after your morning sightseeing and enjoy some tasty local food and drink (not included in the tour cost).

Drive towards Mount Durmitor, where rocky peaks rise high into the sky. Pass dense pine and colorful deciduous forest. Stop at Đurđevića Tara Bridge, the highest in Europe when built in 1940. Cross the 365-meter-long bridge, 172 meters above the canyon floor if you´d like.

Proceed to the hidden jewel of Durmitor National Park, the majestic Black Lake, among 18 glacial lakes above 1,500 meters on Durmitor Mountain. Altogether they are called "Mountain Eyes". Embark on a hike on the 4-kilometer trail around the lake.

Stop at Žabljak, the highest town in the Balkans, located at 1,450 meters above sea level. Dine on a lunch of traditional Montenegrin food. Afterward, hit the road towards the most visited spiritual site in Montenegro, the Ostrog Monastery.

Begin your ascent up the narrow and winding road close to sunset, enjoying spectacular views of the highly-perched monastery. View the relics of the monk Vasilije Ostroški, who founded the place. Return to Kotor at the end of your tour.

The tour was very well organized and flowed well for a full day tour. The stops broke the day up nicely and I felt like I was able to see and experience a fair bit of Montenegro in one day. We had a good mix of group time and time on our own. Our guide Nina was so amazing! She kept everything running smoothly, it is very apparent she has lots of experience with tours! She was funny and informative and really helped make the tour for us!

This is a wonderful and very well organised day trip. Ensuring food orders are collected on the bus and sent to restaurants before your arrival is just one way that the organisers ensure things run like clockwork. Above all, our tour guide Milos' wonderful stories made this trip truly unforgettable.

Slavko was a wonderful guide, had amazing knowledge of the areas and also quite funny. Also gave us time to ourselves to rest/explore so it wasn’t too full on. Breakfast was at a lovely location and the tour seemed like it had very personal attention. There was 9 of us on the tour and a mix of single and partner groups so was great to be able to speak with everyone.
