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.

This tour greatly exceeded my expectations! We were driven around in an excellently-maintained comfortable minibus around the roads of Montenegro with a kind, insightful guide who made sure everyone was comfortable. I don't consider myself a nature guy, but I was blown away by the incredible sights that the driver took us. Because this tour was marketed by a nearby hostel, the tour has plenty of cool travelers who are great company and are now my new friends. I recommend this tour as a must-do for any traveler to Montenegro.

As someone who doesn’t do a lot of organized trips, this was definitely a positive suprize! The trip had a nice balance of activities, sightseeing, history, culture, food and good old fun. And even the long car rides didn’t feel that long at all. Our guide (Milos) was very knowledgeable and charming, and seemed genuinely passionate about the history and culture of Montenegro.

It was a great tour for first-time travellers since the trip served as introduction of all the amazing places in Montenegro. We spent relatively much time in the van and it was all worth it. The driver was excellent driving along the contour lines. I can imagine visiting the spots again in the future and spend more time enjoying the nature.

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the north of Montenegro. Stunning scenery and all the travel accounted for. Only slight issue is having to wait for other guests who are late and get lost..! Our tour guide Milos was fab and informative. Make sure you go on the zipwire!! We can’t wait to go back to Montenegro.

The trip was perfectly organized, our guide Slavko was friendly and highly professional. We enjoyed the trip a lot!
