The bus journey to Montenegro is enriched by stopping at Konavle for a cooking class and lunch served by the Sapro family with love and attention in a friendly atmosphere. Arrival in Kotor and dinner at the hotel.
Meet Perast, one of the most romantic Mediterranean towns. In the past, it was full of silver and gold and as such a frequent target for Adriatic pirates. Amateur Shipwreck diving near Perast which lasts 2 hours will make you think of the times when people from Perast lived from sailing and for sailing.
Follows the visit to an unusual church which is to be reached by boat since it was built on a man-made island facing Perast. It was built by local sailors as a memory of an event that occurred in the 15th century: in a mysterious way a painting of our Lady got to the reef sticking out from the sea, and once found by local fishermen, it appeared to be a miracle-working. The original painting, a patroness of the sailors, is still kept on the main altar which sits on the very reef on which it was originally found.
After enjoying lunch/dinner in Perast, return to Kotor with free time to roam around the city.
You start the tour with an introduction to the Old town, its narrow streets, and numerous Renaissance palaces and churches. Your tourist guide will give you the insights and you will enjoy a remarkable visit to the Church of St. Tryphon. You will be given some free time to roam around. Enjoy shopping or visiting museums while making extraordinary pictures to always remember your trip to Montenegro.

This itinerary is made for your camera. During the stunning drive up the 25 switchbacks and changing the altitude to 2000 feet in less than an hour, you will be stopping quite often to take as many pictures as possible, because this trip will make you want to stay. After the drive, you go behind the mountains to one of the smallest villages of Montenegro where locals have made prosciutto and rakija for centuries. Get to know the host, let him sit with you, and share his stories because that is what he will do. And also be prepared to have a couple more shots of Rakija. Don’t worry, that is not the end. Lay back and enjoy the ride to the highest peak of the Mountain Lovcen, where you will visit the Mausoleum of the great Njegos, a man who has changed the history of Montenegro. The views are remarkable, as if you look close enough you will be able to notice the coast of Italy.
We are now on the lower part of the coast, closer to Albania. Today we plan on driving around the mountain of Rumija, which overlooks the town of Bar. We will drive through some of the rural areas, along a path that has the most impressive sights. The drive will take us to a small village called Virpazar on Skadar lake, one of the Montenegrin National Parks. The people of Virpazar are proud of their wine, homemade rakija, and carp that are cooked in red wine that they produce. They are always introducing cheese and little pastries that have been made by grandmas for hundreds of years and you get to have a bite of it.
The lake has many secrets and it is familiar to a large number of birds. During your lake exploration, you will learn more about it, especially about Montenegrin’s most famous island – the prison, Grmozur.
After lunch at the local restaurant in the settlement River of Crnojevica (population 47) we will still be hanging around the lake, but going on a different side. This time narrow streets will take us to the smallest river settlement, with cobbled streets and stone houses. We will drive and be on the boat again but just from another perspective. Rocky hills and vineyards are located all along the street you will be driven through and small situated corners will get you closer to the local culture. You will get to try out all different sorts of local wine and lunch while getting to know your host and enjoy different stories.
You will experience rainforest Biogradska Gora and go for a walk all around Biogradsko lake and eventually end up in one of the Katun. Your host will tell you more about how life used to be in these areas and true Montenegrin values. North is a wider part of Montenegro and getting from one amazing place to the other takes time, but it is worth it. Today, we are going to Zabljak. The town is known to be the center of Montenegrin winter tourism. On the way, be ready to learn more about the canyon of the river Tara which is the second deepest canyon in the world, and to get on top of a bridge that has been constructed on top of it. After world war 2 this remarkable piece of Architecture has become popular in Europe and it has attracted a serious number of tourists. You might not want this, but there is a Zipline you should try while you are at it. Afterward, we are going to the Black lake, another natural jewel of Montenegro.
The towns of Kolasin and Zabljak are among the colder ones. Meaning that during the summer the temperatures will be as low as 10 degrees Celsius. After waking up, and having breakfast at Black Lake for this special day, we prepared the most scenic drive around the mountain of Durmitor. It is inevitable to stop at least twenty times to get those great photos. On our way, we will make a stop for lunch at one of the village houses (you can encounter these houses every couple of kilometers) if the host is willing to take us in. Our drive will be long but eventually, after the amazing scenery, we will arrive at Piva lake, where we can rest before we return to the capital, Podgorica.
Before leaving we will take a break to go around the capital, introducing you to the more contemporary side of Montenegro. The city is packed with more than one thousand restaurants and bars and you will certainly have the opportunity to have lunch in one of those places. Amazing food and some interesting local stories await as your guide will show you the development and history of the place.
