With destinations that offer a taste of the local culture, food, history, and nature, this full-day tour showcases the best that Montenegro has to offer!
The tour begins in Njeguši with a tasting at a 134-year-old restaurant called Kod Pera na Bukovicu. Sample and learn about the production of rajika (grape brandy), local cheeses (once traded as far as Venice and Malta), and smoked ham (which remains the most popular product of the region).
Venture into one of Montenegro’s five national parks and discover the wondrous beauty of Lovćen Mountain. Climb 461 steps to the mountaintop Njegoš Mausoleum to see rewarding views of Skadar Lake, Bay of Kotor, Cetinje, and sweeping mountain ranges.
A scenic drive to the foot of the mountain leads to Cetinje, the old royal capital of Montenegro and a treasury of Montenegrin architecture and history. It has been dubbed “museum city” for its many historic buildings, monasteries, and churches.
Next is Rijeka Crnojevića, a hidden pearl amidst Skadar Lake National Park. Activities include a scenic hour-long boat ride and walk through the nature reserve with abundant photo opportunities, followed by lunch at a fish restaurant offering local specialties and Montenegrin wines. After viewing Skadar Lake, the largest in Montenegro, enjoy the coastal drive to Kotor with optional stops in the seaside towns of Budva, St. Stefan, or Jaz Beach.
