Detailed itinerary

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 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.

Cycle the Vrmac Range

The start of your tour takes you along the shoreline to the top of Vrmac range. Enjoy the views to the open sea and the UNESCO World Heritage Bay of Kotor before returning to Kotor.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycling in Lovcen National Park

Located in the Dinara Alps, Lovćen National Park incorporates a range of habitats with a variety of plant and animal species residing in the park.

Lovćen National Park is most famous for the towering mausoleum of St Peter at the Jezerski vrh peak, but it’s worth exploring the park adventure activities, from ziplining and quad-biking for thrill-seekers to hiking and cycling for the more sedate.

Included meals: Breakfast

Explore Lake Skadar from Cetinje to Virparzar

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.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycle to Stari Bar

Follow an abandoned railway line to Bar, riding through ancient olive groves. Right in front of your hotel starts the old railway track – nowadays a small road. A pleasant climb takes you up to a pass before you head down to Stari Bar.

Included meals: Breakfast

Mountain biking in the mountains

Transfer to the mountains above Budva and spend the day following an old military train to the hotel on the island of Sveti Stefan, continuing on to Budva where you will spend the night.

Included meals: Breakfast

Relax at Budva

One of the most popular tourist cities in Montenegro with its beaches and old town as well being a good base for those heading out for hiking and biking trips.

The beach offers space for relaxing as well as opportunities for snorkelling, swimming and diving and there is a pop up seafood market selling prawns, oysters and squid.

For history enthusiasts, visit the old town which is surrounded by ancient walls and with cobbled streets. You can also take a trip to the Rustovo Monastery, still an active monastery on Chelobrdo Hill.

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...
