Like most under the radar travel destinations, Montenegro has become a firm favourite with travellers, who visit here for the sunny climates and sandy beaches but without the crowds. Take a short boat trip to see Our Lady of the Rocks, enjoy a beautiful hiking trail through the woodland surrounding Crno Jezero Lake or simply relax on the sands at Budva Riviera. Bursting at the seams with majestic mountains, breath-taking beaches and larger-than-life locals, Montenegro proves that good things do indeed come in small packages.
Christened Montenegro by the Venetians for its striking mountains that cascade into the bay, this tiny nation combines wild hinterland with an alluring coastline. Single travellers can explore the historical towns of Kotor and Budva, that showcase the country’s many reigning’s over the years. Only round the bay from Croatia, Montenegro is a popular destination to twin-centre with its neighbour.
Montenegro is home to the oldest olive tree in the world! At over 2,000 years old, the tree is a magnificent attraction in the southern area of Bar. The area is renowned for its beautiful hectares of olive groves. Part of the tree is burnt, and the legend has it that it was caused by an accidental fire triggered during a card game under the tree!
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
