Montenegro Coast & Mountains

Nestled between Croatia and Albania, fascinating Montenegro is one of Europe’s last undiscovered treasures. There’s not a lot of it – its barely 100km from top to bottom – but crammed within it is some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe. It has a wonderful coastline of stunning beaches lapped by turquoise seas, from where stunning limestone cliffs rise dramatically to mountainous landscapes as impressive as anything you would find in the Alps. Montenegro offers visitors a glimpse into the past; it’s a country where time seems to have stood still, with its cliffside monasteries, quaint fishing villages, and historic walled cities, where people still greet you with a friendly smile.

We are based in Becici close to the picturesque coastal resort of Budva, which lies in a glorious bay on a broad sweep of beach. Known as “mini-Dubrovnik”, its tiny and picture-postcard Stari Grad (Old Town) perches dramatically on rocks jutting out into the bay, and dates back to the 15th-century. This walled town is one of Montenegro’s cultural highlights, with its medieval citadel, centuries-old stone walls and 7th-century churches – fascinating to stroll around its narrow atmospheric streets now crammed with shops, bars and restaurants.

Lovcen Natural Park

Considered sacred by Montenegrans, the Lovcen National Park is home to “Black Mountain” after which the country is named. The park is a unique habitat to a vast array of flora and fauna – over 2000 species; the result of extreme altitudes and the influence of two differing climate zones: Mediterranean and Continental. This combination in such a small space creates a unique habitat.

Tudorovici to Brajici

Starting from the village of Tudorovici, we hike along a mountain path to the shepherd’s cottages at Ogradjenica. From here we climb up through wonderful mountain scenery to Sjenokosi and on to Brajici to visit the Austrian Fortress at Kosmac, a great spot to admire the wonderful views of the coast way beneath you.nd its narrow atmospheric streets now crammed with shops, bars and restaurants.

Wine, honey & cheese

Our walk climbs to Jezerski Peak, from where there are magnificent views of almost half of Montenegro, before we descend to the village of Njegusi, famous for its local produce – such as wine, honey and cheese – and there will be the chance to taste some of it on a well-earned break.

Hotel Tara

Located just 80m from one of Montenegro’s most beautiful beaches Becici, our attractive, friendly hotel is just less than 2km from the old town of chic yet historical Budva.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Dubrovnik Airport to our hotel is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes depending on weather and traffic.

Walking programme
Four guided walks are included in the programme. Your walking guide will advise you in resort of the daily programme. The walking programme is graded as Medium and you can expect to walk between 8 to 12km per day, with some ascents/descents, rough underfoot terrain and high altitudes involved.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
There will be plenty for you to see and do during your own leisure time during the course of your holiday, full details of which will be given out at your Information Meeting by your Tour Leader with prices (depending on group size). Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you and explain where you will need to go but may not necessarily accompany you.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.
