A week exploring the bays, lakes and mountains of Montenegro
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kotor’s fjord has been recognised as one of the most beautiful bays in the world with its coast line boasting fine beaches, amazing flora and fauna and with a magnificent mountainous backdrop, this is just the start of our time in this fascinating country. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays.
The region is rich in culture, history and of course, there are great walks from the city’s ramparts to walking high above the bay on Vrmac and Lovcen Mountains. For our three nights in ancient fortified Kotor we are ideally situated in the historic main town to explore the wonderful narrow streets, beautiful architecture and quaint squares of the old town.
Kotor is stunningly beautiful but there are other wonderful sights in Montenegro and on one of our walks, Stari Bar comes into view. Stari, Bar has a varied history, over the centuries it has been claimed by Venetians, Serbians, Hungarians and the Ottomans, and our local guide will bring the story to life.
We stay for three nights in the neighbouring town of Bar, nestled in the green and grey foothills of Mount Rumija Stari, A boat trip on Skadar Lake dotted with small islands with churches atop finish off a village hopping walk beautifully.
In short the walking is great with varied terrain from bays in Kotor, lakeland walks in Skadar to conquering, enticing mountains. Something for everyone!
