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.

A wonderful tour of the northern part of the country. Stunning Durmitor National Park, Ostrog Monastery, and incredible mountains (and zip line with a breeze). It was just a wonderful day, in the company of wonderful people from all over the world. Thanks to the guide Nina - the trip turned out to be very fun and interesting!

You have to go on this incredible adventure. Any one of these places is a showstopper, but to cover it all in one day? Amazing. Our guide Luka was excellent, balancing interesting and helpful information with our need to explore (and rest during some of the driving. There is a lot of it). Marko, our driver, was also incredible. The turns up to Ostrog are scary, and he handled them in a way that made the ride fun. I will always remember this trip. Thank you!

The tour started very early since we were in Budva, they picked us up first at 06:10, then other people from Tivat and Kotor. We had couple of 5 min stops on the way to Tara with some great views of Kotor bay area. Tour is very fast, no time to see much. At Tara bridge we had 40 min, was enough to run to toilet, run to take zipline (super nice!) and take couple of fotos but not enough to enjoy a bit. Same at the Lake, just 60 min. Unfortunatly Ostrog was full of people who came there and slept over and we couldnt even get close. Food for breakfast was very good and cheap, lunch food in Oro restaurant was horrible, and we had on our table all choices except fish. My chicken was thin piece covered with 1 kg of mushroom white souce… Blajo driver and Slavko the guide were very nice and did their best, but I would either rent a car and do this tour on my own, or take a private tour or maybe there option with overnight stay to enjoy the nature there…
