Discover Montenegro

Why Montenegro?

Good things come in small packages. And Montenegro is no exception to the rule. This charming Mediterranean country - the size of Bahamas - shares the same majestic seashore with Croatia but proves less-crowded and more authentic. With 5 national parks covering 10% of its land, a 295 km long pristine coastline, a plethora of antique Venetian villages and UNESCO protected walled cities - Montenegro will exceed all your expectations. Culturally molded for centuries by Romans, Venetians, Greeks, and Slavs, “The Black Mountain” is something of a mystery to the wider world.
We now invite you to discover it.

Lifelong Memories

We want your experiences to be three things: authentic, stress-free, and personalized. That's why private tours are instrumental in turning an ordinary holiday into a lifelong memory! Montenegro has plenty to offer when it comes to adrenalin infused activities such as parachuting, a helicopter or horseback riding. Pure hedonists might go down for a wine tasting tour or learn to make traditional Mediterranean meals with authentic ingredients. For nature-lovers we happily organize open sea and lake cruising, kayaking, hiking & trekking excursions they will write home about. If what your heart desires is somehow not on the list, give us a call and we’ll make it happen.

10 reasons to visit Montenegro

  • Much less crowded than its northern neighbor Croatia, Montenegro managed to preserve its breezy charms so untypical for sustained tourism hubs on the Mediterranean Riviera.
  • Circulate around Europe's most southern Fjord, the cobalt blue Bay of Kotor. Soak up its pristine landscapes, Venetian architecture, and lovely beaches that spread for kilometers encompassed by lush mountain ridges.
  • In comparison to Dubrovnik, Kotor Old city is just as fascinating but feels less established as a tourist destination so you can genuinely experience the time-travel effect it has on people.
  • Restore balance, seek thrills and reconnect with unspoiled nature in UNESCO protected Durmitor National Park where Switzerland-like landscapes meet the Adriatic ambiance.
  • Montenegro's overflowing vineyard landscapes will remind you of Tuscany and inspire you to enjoy a glass of opulent homemade red vine or a shot of rakija, a potent fruit brandy that's on every traveler's lips.
  • The Canyon of Tara is second in size only to the Grand Canyon. Rafting through Tara, the wildest, most beautiful mountain river in the region, is an incredible experience for adventurers and nature lovers.
  • Expect the unexpected in the Old Town of Budva where Medieval architecture fuses with a vibrant Ibiza-like nightlife scene. Throw your towel in one of its pristine pebble beaches and wait for sundown... or sunrise.
  • Gastronomic delicacies as Njeguš beef prosciutto, homemade clotted cream (kajmak) and buzara with Adriatic shellfish, prawns and shrimp come served with world known Eastern European hospitality and generosity.
  • Porto Montenegro, a trendy yacht-marina filled with restaurants, bars, and luxury boutiques will teleport you to Montenegro's near future as this millionaire's coastal haven is seen to become a new Monaco. Enjoy it while it lasts!
