Montenegro Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Montenegro meaning 'black mountain' is a picturesque country and is only just starting to get noticed as an adventure travel destination. Explore the capital city of Podgorica and the towns of Stari Bar, Budva, and Kotor. The country has beautiful landscapes of mountains, pine forests and lakes. The fabulously jagged coastline along the Adriatic Sea offers a variety of beaches, coves, bays and islets that make for interesting summer walks. Go skiing and hiking at Durmitor National Park and explore Tara’s deep canyon on a rafting adventure tour!
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town offers stunning medieval architecture and numerous ancient churches such as St Triphon's Cathedral built in 1166. Adventure travelers visiting Montenegro would not have their tour complete without a visit to the vibrant 2,500 year old city of Budva, with its beautiful sandy beaches, an open-air stage for theatrical performances and festivals and a thrilling night life. Another highlight for adventure travelers visiting Montenegro is a visit to the Ostrog Monastery near Nikšić, clinging precariously to an almost vertical cliff face. Built in the 17th century to honour one of the four Montenegrin saints, the sanctuary attracts Orthodox, Catholic and Muslim pilgrims.
