Full description
Set out on a day trip from Podgorica to explore the natural jewels of Montenegro in Durmitor National Park. Marvel at Morača River canyon, Morača Monastery, Tara River, Đurđevića Tara bridge, the Black Lake and pass scenic roads on the way. Start your adventure with a panoramic road along lakes and picturesque villages. Drive through the black pine forest, whose grandiose trees soar to 50 meters, to reach the highest inhabited town in the Balkans, Zabljak. While its altitude sets it apart, Zabljak is also the center of Durmitor. At the heart of this beautiful mountain town is the Black Lake. Known as the "Montenegrin eyes" Black Lake is the biggest of 17 lakes in the Durmitor National Park. Take a short walk to the lake and challenge yourself to moderate hiking along the marked trails. Reward yourself with snacks in the bar on the shore. After the break, continue to explore the beauty of Durmitor. Meet Tara River with the deepest canyon in Europe. Breathe fresh mountain air amidst unspoiled nature. Get on the 365-meter-long Đurđevića Tara bridge for a unique view of the river and the surrounding scenery. Learn about the bridge's important role in the history of Montenegro from your guide. Try ziplining for a special experience if you dare to fly like a bird over Tara Canyon from one side to the other (not included in the price). Or move on to an old, wired bridge for more views of the river. Visit the Moraca monastery, one of the oldest Orthodox monasteries in Montenegro. Discover the history and architecture of the monastery. On the way back, enjoy a panoramic ride on the edge of the Morača River Canyon, going through one of the most dangerous roads in Europe. But don’t worry because you are in good hands. If time permits, you can opt for an additional visit to the Biogradska Gora forest and national park, one of the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

My guide today was Dimitrije, who picked me up on time and showed me the most beautiful vantage points between and above the canyons on the way to the national park, so that fabulous shots of the mountains and the crystal-clear rivers were created. A detour to a monastery on the way was also possible and in general Dimitrije was ready to implement all wishes. There was an optional stop for ziplining which I took advantage of. I definitely won't regret it. There are then opportunities to support local small breweries of schnapps by buying the goods on site. At the national park, which costs €3 entry, you can explore the forest and Black Lake on your own. Dimitrije came back after 2 hours and left together towards Podgorica. The guide is really passionate and motivated on the go. He does what he can to ensure that the experience remains unforgettable. And it will be unforgettable for me.

The trip was very well organized. It was very convenient that the guide picked us at the hotel. The guide was very informative, explained for us history of the points that we visited. He made for us many extra stops for photo taking. All stops were very beautiful. In fact all the road was beautiful with a lot of mountains, rivers, waterfalls, bridges and lakes. The guide was very kind , we were able to ask about anything we need. He gave us hints how to spend free time and what to eat. This trip is suitable for every age if you like nature. It is not hard as the transport is convenient and you do not have to walk a lot. It is really worth for money. Thank you Dimitrije for the nice trip. It was beyond my expectations !
