If there was such a thing as a typical Montenegrin day, it might begin with a dip in the Adriatic, followed by lunch beside the beautiful Lake Skadar, and culminate in an evening surrounded by dramatic mountains.
The coastline twists and turns back in on itself. It’s good news for connoisseurs of fine beaches, because it means there will be stretches of deserted sand, inlets that are tucked away from the rest of the world and quiet coves for uninterrupted sun worshipping. All lapped by the clear, turquoise Adriatic.
Step inland and you’ll discover yourself amongst gentle rolling hills covered in dark green olive trees. Not to mention fast flowing rivers, reflective lakes and the drama of picturesque mountain ranges. If you’re a committed walker, as well as a beach connoisseur, you will have found your perfect destination.
Ask Jo Abbott. She’s one of our Montenegro consultants and she can introduce you to places like the 13,500-acre Biogradska Gora National Park, with its 2,000-meter tall mountains, nine glaciers and outstanding lowland lake.
Jo will suggest spending a few hours wandering through the charming old streets and squares of Kotor – itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and wending your way up to its ancient fort for the breathtaking views. She’ll also suggest a stay on the delightful island city of Sveti Stefan with its quaint house and ancient fortifications.
