What you'll see and do

This is a customisable trip

Use the following itinerary for inspiration. Remember: all days, hotels and activities can be altered to suit your requirements. A 3e Travel travel specialist will be happy to advise.

Arrive at Lake Skadar National Park

Skadar is the Balkans largest lake, with two-thirds sitting in Montenegro and the rest in Albania.

A popular area for those seeking outdoor adventures, the surrounding national park is the perfect place to escape the heat of the city, with awe-inspiring mountains, island monasteries and pretty villages such as Virpazar.

The area is known for it's bird habitats and and you can look out for rare Dalmatian pelicans on the lake’s water – the world’s heaviest flying bird.

Sea kayaking on Lake Skadar

After breakfast you start your first adventure – sea kayaking. After a short safety introduction we start to explore the lake and its wildlife. You pass narrow channels through carpets of lily-pads. Romantic villages are nestled on the shoreline. Have a break on a small beach before you head towards the settlement. Continue to Podgorica, Montenegro’s lively capital where you'll stay in the historical centre.

Included meals: Breakfast

Hiking in Biogradska Gora National Park

Early morning call for a train ride on one of the most spectacular train lines in Europe from Podgorica to Kolasin. Upon arrival, you are transferred to the starting point of today’s walk above Biogradska Gora National Park. After lunch we walk a ridge with stunning panorama views to the mountain ranges around. We arrive at a typical mountain pasture. Today we experience the simple and tranquil life style of Montenegrin families.

Rafting on the Tara River

After a hearty breakfast you follow a steep trail downhill across an ancient forest to the lake Biogradska Gora. There you are picked up and transferred across Tara Canyon, the deepest in Europe (1300m) to the starting point of your rafting trip on river Tara. In the afternoon you head to National Park Durmitor.

If you do not wish to join the rafting tour, you join a journey to visit the summit of Curevac which is arguably the best viewpoint to fully appreciate the beauty and scale of the Tara Canyon.

Included meals: Breakfast

Hiking in Durmitor National Park

After breakfast you have two options.

Hike to the summit of Crvena Greda, one of the best viewpoints in Durmitor. With every step the views become evermore impressive. Not only are you rewarded with a rest and time to have your picnic lunch, you are now directly opposite snowy topped peaks, including Bobotov Kuk, the highest 2,523m/8,277ft in the park, and views back down across the park to Zabljak in the distance. (15km miles, 700m ascent/descent, 5-6 hrs)

Or if you can have a relaxed tour around Snake Lake and Black Lake. There are some nice little bays along your trail and you can swim in Black Lake. You will definitely refresh you spirits. (8km, 2-3 hrs, +200m/-200m)

You could also spend visit Canyon Nevidio. The entrance of the canyon is surrounded by two glacial lakes and a waterfall. The Canyoning is grade 2-3 and takes up 6 hrs depending on the fitness and number of participants.

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Sea kayaking in the Bay of Kotor

Montenegro is a country full of beautiful views, but the Bay of Kotor’s waterfront might just be the best.

Spend a couple of days meandering through its towns, from the restored palaces of Perast to Kotor’s Venetian old town with sites including the three city gates, town square and clock tower, but the highlight is the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon. Nowhere combines ancient history and stunning scenery better.

An UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bay of Kotor's winding coastline offers ample opportunities for hikers and bikers, with quiet roads generally devoid of traffic. Head up to the observation deck at Tivat for panoramic views of the bay and hike the 1300 steps to the Kotor Fortress.

Included meals: Breakfast

Explore Budva

While this trip will visit the old town of Budva and you have the chance to visit Sveti Stefan, the former fishermen village and nowadays top end hotel – but still one of the iconic landscape features of Montenegro.

Before your start cycling downhill, learn more about the turbulent past of the 19th century kingdom of Montenegro in Cetinje, the royal capital of Montenegro back in those times. Follow a winding road from 1350m above the sea right to the walls of Kotor – each bend offers a new stunning view into the bay.

Included meals: Breakfast

Departure day

Following breakfast, your adventure trip in Montenegro concludes. Transfer from your accommodation to the international airport at Podgorica, Tivat or Dubrovnik for return flights home or we recommend an extension to discover southern Montenegro’s coast.

The absolutely incredible scenery and the very friendly and welcoming people of Montenegro and Albania. One of my favourite holidays ever. Everyone was so accommodating on our trip. The hotels we stayed in were very friendly and did their best to make sure we had a comfortable stay.

One of the best tours, it had everything. Stunning hikes during the day and then we could relax back at the hotel
and on the beaches, swimming and snorkeling. The whole team at 3e travel were amazing and they do all the
hard work for you (besides the hiking, but that makes the view so much more special). I can't recommend
3E enough, and we'll definitely use them again to explore the surrounding areas next time we get to
go back.

I am a regular cycle visitor to the Adriatic coast but had little knowledge of Montenegro. I found 3e on the internet and was glad I did. I told them our dates, number or riders and ability and they did the rest. They came up with an excellent itinerary, sorted accommodation and bikes and supported us on the ride. Without their local knowledge we could not have discovered the fantastic rides and places without 3e. Angelika was just fantastic. Hope to get back for some trail rides soon.

I cannot praise Angelika and the team at 3e highly enough. I wanted to organise a trip for 40 friends to Montenegro to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. a friend recommended 3e. I contacted Angelika and explained our rather complicated requirements - with a combination of long hikes and adventure sports for some, relaxation for others, lots of culture and history, authentic experiences, good food and wine, hip locations and boutique accommodation, and all of it for not too high a budget! much to my amazement, she came back to me within 24 hours with a proposed itinerary which exactly matched our requirements - she immediately understood the style that our group was looking for, and after that we only made minor changes to the basic itinerary. From then on, everything about the organisation could not have been smoother - the communication back and forth was fast, the 3e team successfully greeted our guests arriving at 3 different airports on multiple different days, all of o...
