Undoubtedly a paradise for nature lovers, Montenegro also has a fascinating history and artistic legacy. The cultural heritage includes age-old music and dances, gastronomic specialities, unique architecture and impressive monuments. You will find here dramatic contrasts between the old and new; from ancient towns and traditional fishing villages to modern resorts and “jet set” marinas. The locals are famous for their hospitality (a serious matter of pride) and perhaps surprising for such a small country, Montenegrins are arguably the tallest people in the world!
Our tour includes an exciting variety of excursions to show the best Montenegro has to offer. Among the highlights will be a boat trip to the fairy-tale Bay of Kotor (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), wine tasting at a unique “airplane bunker” cellar, dinner at a local farm to sample specialties of the region with a folklore show, tour of the sophisticated town and old royal capital of Cetinje, a day trip to Albania and a visit of Tara Canyon National Park.
We will stay 5 nights in Porto Montenegro - a marina development in the small town of Tivat filled with restaurants, bars and boutiques. The marina itself has 450 berths and can accommodate the largest mega-yachts in the world. We then travel to Kolasin for a 2-night stay in this spectacular mountain region, followed by a 6-night stay in the popular resort town of Budva with its atmospheric old town, lovely beaches and endless boardwalk.
** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
