This tiny Balkan country rewards you with beautiful national parks, a stunning coastline and quietly picturesque towns. We begin by visiting Budvar’s pretty Venetian old town and the majestic Bay of Kotor. Later, we board a boat to discover the animals and plants that call Lake Skadar National Park home. We take a memorable journey into the mountains to Žabljak, the highest town in the Balkans. And we uncover even more unspoilt natural beauty in Biogradska Gora National Park and Lake.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Tivat. On arrival, we transfer to our hotel in Budva.
This morning we’ll discover Budva’s old town on a walking tour. More than 2,000 years old, this picturesque town has pretty narrow streets with plenty of history to explore. The tour includes a visit to the Archaeological Museum, home to ancient jewellery, glassware and ceramics, as well as some beautiful, locally excavated Roman mosaics.
Enjoy free time to stroll at leisure around Budva. Perhaps browse the boutiques or visit one of the many cafés and restaurants. Food in Budva has a strong Mediterranean influence and there’s plenty of delicious fresh fish and seafood to try.
In the afternoon, we set off for an included excursion to UNESCO-protected Kotor, where we visit the old town and the charming Cathedral of Saint Tryphon. We continue to the beachside town of Risan for spectacular views of vibrant Kotor Bay, before returning to Budva.
Take a day at leisure or join a full-day optional Montenegro tour, in which you can enjoy more spectacular scenery and gain a further sense of the rolling Montenegrin countryside.
Today is free to spend as you wish. Perhaps take a relaxing stroll through the old town to enchanting Mogren beach. As you wander, you might see the elegant bronze Statua Ballerina perched on rugged rocks. Maybe stop to visit the delightful Church of Saint Ivan in the old town or the Citadela fortress with its jaw-dropping panoramic views.
We say farewell to the Montenegrin Adriatic coast and drive via Saint Stefan and Petrovac, to Lake Skadar National Park, on the border with Albania.
We visit the small, charming fishing village of Virpazar, which straddles the river flowing into Lake Skadar and board a small boat to sail through breathtaking scenery and explore the fantastic flora and fauna.
We then begin an unforgettable journey into the mountains as we drive via Podgorica (Montenegro’s capital) and Moraca River Canyon to Kolašin town and our base for the next three nights.
We spend the day exploring the Montenegrin Mountains and Durmitor National Park. We’ll travel via the spectacular Tara River Canyon to visit the highest town in the Balkans, Žabljak, at an altitude of 1,464 metres. We also visit Black Lake, for fantastic views of the highest mountain in Montenegro - Durmitor. We return to the hotel for the evening.
We enjoy a morning excursion to Biogradska Gora National Park and Lake. A large part of the park is rainforest - one of only three remaining in Europe, with a striking lake of emerald green waters.
Spend the afternoon at leisure in Kolašin, Montenegro’s main mountain resort at 960 metres above sea level.
We journey through the Montenegrin countryside to Tivat, for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
