Montenegro is full of exciting outdoor activities for the whole family. The beaches, mountains and national parks of Montenegro encourage exploration and help develop a deep love of the outdoors. Take a break from playing at the sea or exploring the old towns on the coast, and get outside to explore the wildly, beautiful Montenegro.
GO FOR A HIKE
Montenegro is full of hiking trails, but none are quite like Durmitor National Park. Durmitor is incredibly beautiful, peaceful, with fewer tourists, good markings, clean air and a lot of lakes. Majority of the hikes will get you to the lake in one way or another. There are easy hiking trails around Curevac or Zminje Jezero (Snake Lake) and Crno Jezero (Black Lake), which are ideal for kids and adults alike because it is completely barrier-free, only take two to three hours to complete and have no elevation gain.
PEDAL AWAY THE DAY
Do not limit yourself to explore Skadar Lake only by boat, there are bike trails that crisscross around the lake. Skadar Lake bike trails take you through some of Montenegro’s most beautiful scenery. They are paved, multi-use paths that travels around the largest lake in Southern Europe. They are favorites for weekend bike rides and is a fun adventure for kids of all ages. Skadar Lake bike trails are easy to access from Virpazar, and offers lots of options to stop and eat, sightsee or play along the lake.
RAFT DOWN THE TARA
In summer, locals flock in droves to the Tara River, located in the longest canyon in Montenegro to cool off. This all-day event is popular for those who want to enjoy untouched nature.
