Be part of the Montenegro Multisport Adventure
This little country is a part of the Balkans and a part of the Mediterranean. It is located near Bosnia, Croatia and Albania. Montenegro belongs to the most southern European states. It comes out on the south part of the Adriatic Sea. Hence it lies on the Balkan Peninsula. In the morning you can wake up along the beautiful coast, have lunch on the banks of Skadar Lake, and enjoy the evening walks in the Montenegrin Mountains.
DAY 1 – Cycling – Black Lake cycling
We will meet up in Komolac near Dubrovnik by 10 AM, and drive to Montenegro to start our adventure. First stop – Black Lake. This glacial lake is located in Durmitor National Park and depending on the timing of your visit, you may see one or two bodies of water. They are connected by a narrow stream that dries up during summer, creating two distinct lakes. Enjoy gorgeous views during the short cycle around the lakes and check into your accommodation.
DAY 2 – Trekking – National Park Durmitor
We drive to the saddle and start the trek on the route which leads to the highest peak of Durmitor, Bobotov Kuk. Your reward for a somewhat demanding hike is a beautiful view of the surrounding summits. The final stretch to Bobotov Kuk is quite difficult, but it is possible to finish the trek earlier and still enjoy stunning views.
DAY 3 – Rafting – Tara River
The Tara River is one of the best rivers for rafting in this part of Europe. Crystal clear water cuts through the deep canyon surrounded by cliffs and trees. We raft the 12-kilometer long section. Visit a monastery dating back to the 13th century and make a swimming stop in the so-called Gardens of Paradise – a gorgeous river section below a mountain creek. Rapids are easy and fun, class 2-3. After the trip, we stop for an authentic local specialty – the trout.
DAY 4 – Departure – Return to Dubrovnik
We finish up our Montenegro multisport adventure. If you decide to spend more time in Montenegro or Croatia, our guides will be happy to recommend other beautiful places to visit – especially those you won’t find in tourist guide books. However, you can further combine some of our follow up trips, to further extend your stay.
