Introduction
How will you explain Montenegro to your friends who haven’t been (and that will be 99.9% of them)? Do you start with its balmy Adriatic coast, where golden stone villages nestle on secluded, palm-lined bays? You can’t leave out the wild mountains with their sheer canyons and whisper-quiet lakes. You’ll certainly have stories about the hospitable Montenegrins…the olive growers, grappa-makers, shepherds and artists our local guide introduces to you. We think you’ll fall in instant love with this compact Balkan land like we did because it’s still so undiscovered, unexpected and unforgettable. In one easy-going week, we’ll take in UNESCO World Heritage sites, four scenic national parks, chic seaside resorts, and pre-Medieval landmarks. And you’ll come home with the satisfying sense of having fully experienced the culture of a country that most travelers can’t even find on a map.
Picture yourself...
  • Strolling the palm-lined shores of the Adriatic
  • Lunching with shepherds in their mountaintop huts
  • Tasting olive oil in the mill where it was pressed
Itinerary at a glance
DAYS 1-2 - PODGORICA / KOLASIN
We meet in the modern capital of Podgorica. After a brief walk, we visit Moraca Monastery with its 13th Century frescoes. En route to the mountain village of Kolasin (2 nights) we’ll stop to wander in a private botanical garden. We’ll drive through the awesome Tara River Canyon—Europe’s deepest—and walk the shores of glacial Black Lake. At the end of a mountaintop path, a family of shepherds welcomes us to lunch at their huts.

DAYS 3-4 - BUDVA
Then we descend to Budva (2 nights) on the lush Adriatic coast. We’ll explore a trail through a valley of ancient mills. By private launch, we’ll glide over the teeming waters of Lake Skadar and take in perfect views of legendary Sveti Stefan. And you’ll meet our friend Boris and learn how he preserves the classic art of mosaics.

DAYS 5-7 - KOTOR
Under a jumble of red-tile roofs, lovely Kotor (2 nights) sits on a fjord-like arm of the Adriatic. From our hotel, we wander (and shop) its narrow medieval streets and cruise out to a tiny island. A walk through olive groves with views of the sea leads us to Ilija’s farmhouse for an olive oil tasting. Our farewell dinner is at one of the country’s best restaurants.

Montenegro
Cultural Walking Adventure
7 Days / 6 Nights
Because Montenegro has such a varied topography in an area the size of Connecticut, you’ll find that it has a warm, balmy climate along the coast and a mountain climate inland. We will be spending four of our seven days along the coast where the warm sunshine is moderated by the winds that blow off the Adriatic Sea, and three of our seven days in the mountains, where temperatures can be cooler even in the hot summer.

Hotels
Bianca Resort & Spa

High up in the Montenegrin mountains, the setting for this resort is a thick pine forest with views of mountain ranges and panoramic valleys. The classic chalet style carries over to the timber-vaulted indoor swimming pool.

Villa Vita

With panoramic views of the Budva Riviera, Villa Vita is a hidden gem. There's an infinity pool and terrace, beautifully suited for a sunset cocktail or a glamorous breakfast.

Regent Porto Montenegro

Set in a super-yacht marina, this property is a glimpse into the Adriatic Coast at its most luxurious. The design was inspired by Venetian palazzos. Each room, decorated in modern Mediterranean style, boasts a view of Boka Bay or the lush mountains.
