Day by day itinerary
Fly to Tivat, where you’ll collect your hire car before heading for the mountain village of Zabljak for a relaxing stay. Allow at least four hours to get there as the road takes you through valleys and across mountain passes, a stunning medley of scenery. Despite the rugged surroundings, you will find every comfort at the modern and welcoming Hotel Soa which is located in the centre of Žabljak, at 1450m above sea level, on the edge of the Durmitor national park. From this base, you can enjoy explore the glacial lakes of Durmitor, raft the Tara canyon and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the Montenegrin interior.
Stay : Hotel Soa, Zabljak (Superior)
You will then head back down the mountain to stay in the UNESCO protected town of Kotor for a complete contrast. One of the best preserved medieval cities in the Adriatic, Kotor is Montenegro’s answer to Croatia’s Dubrovnik, with grand Venetian mansions dominating the seafront and pretty stone churches hidden among the cobbled streets. Spend four nights at Hotel Hippocampus, a beautifully restored former merchant's house hidden away on the charming backstreets of Kotor old town.
Stay : Hotel Hippocampus - Kotor Old Town (Superior)
