With such rich wildlife and sublime beauty, it’s an adventurer’s playground. Try hiking, trekking, mountain biking, white water rafting, kayaking and - during the winter - a host of snowsports.
The majesty of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Durmitor National Park, encompasses forest-clad mountains (its highest, Bobotov Kuk, reaching 2,522 meters) and 18 crystal-clear glacial lakes. It contains Europe’s largest canyon - Tara Canyon - through which flow the vivid blue waters of the Tara River, perfect for rafting or kayaking. Biogradska Gora National Park’s virgin woodland is home to a network of hiking and biking trails. Walks will take you past ancient trees, rich wildlife and, if you’re lucky, the startling stillness of Biogradska Lake.
Off the beaten tourist track, Montenegro’s mountains are a haven for winter sports. There is snowfall from October to April and some peaks remaining snow-capped into summer. Skiing can be enjoyed at the country’s two main ski resorts: Kolašin 1450 in Biogradska Gora National Park and Žabljak in Durmitor National Park. For the thrill-seeker there is also snow-kiting, snowboarding, freeriding, snowshoeing, ice climbing and winter mountaineering through the challenging Durmitor and Prokletije mountains.
