Full description

See the picturesque countryside of Montenegro on a guided tour from Kotor. Admire clear lakes, spectacular coasts, the famous Ostrog Monastery, and more.

Take your first photo stop shortly after leaving Kotor and capture the beauty of two nearby islands, Our Lady of the Rocks and Saint George. Move to higher elevations for a second photo stop above Risan Bay.

Continue to Nikšić, the second biggest city in Montenegro, and make another stop for pictures at the artificial Salty Lake. Take a much-needed breakfast break after your morning sightseeing and enjoy some tasty local food and drink.

Drive towards Mount Durmitor, where rocky peaks rise high into the sky. Pass dense pine and colorful deciduous forest. Stop at Đurđevića Tara Bridge, the highest in Europe when built in 1940. Cross the 365-meter-long bridge, 172 meters above the canyon floor if you´d like.

Proceed to the hidden jewel of Durmitor National Park, the majestic Black Lake, among 18 glacial lakes above 1,500 meters on Durmitor Mountain. All together they are called "Mountain Eyes". Embark on a hike on the 4-kilometer trail around the lake.

Stop at Žabljak, the highest town in the Balkans, located at 1,450 meters above sea level. Dine on a lunch of traditional Montenegrin food. Afterward, hit the road towards the most visited spiritual site in Montenegro, the Ostrog Monastery.

Begin your ascent up the narrow and winding road close to sunset, enjoying spectacular views of the highly-perched monastery. View the relics of the monk Vasilije Ostroški, who founded the place. Return to Kotor at the end of your tour.

We had a fantastic day with Luka, seeing all the best parts that North Montenegro had to offer! Durmitor National Park is absolutely beautiful and the Black Lake is a must-see. There is a LOT of driving on this trip (with some pretty windy sections!) but the landscape view is stunning and you will soon see how Montenegro is 80% covered in mountains. Our guide Luka was informative and friendly and the food was really good. Overall, a tiring but unforgettable day.

Montenegro is a beautiful and exciting country, and I wanted to see as much as possible in a too short time. This tour is very ambitious trying to show so much during one single day. This means a lot of driving time and not enough time to do or see anything properly. My suggestion is to offer an option of two days on this route, too. I participated in the tour on a rainy day and that was less fun.

the tour was very good and our guide Nina was very good at her job and of coarse the driver who got us back in one piece. Our only complaint was that at the end of the tour which was a long day out , from 6 a.m till 8p.m we were taken back to Kotor were the tour began instead of organising a drop off long before , which would have saved us such a long journey and an extra hour to be taken back to our destination by the same driver that picked us up in the morning. Needless to say he was shattered as well
