Tours in Durmitor National Park and Northern Montenegro

Two hours drive north of Lake Skadar is Durmitor National Park, a staggeringly beautiful area for mountain lovers! For summer 2015 we are offering four day tours for those who wish to push themselves a little harder and experience the amazing north of Montenegro in the hands of fully qualified, bilingual guides! You can make your own way to Durmitor NP (don't worry, we provide full directions), or let us handle all the transportation for you.

Be prepared! You will need sturdy walking shoes as well as a hat and suncream. A good degree of physical fitness is essential for the hiking, which is a little more strenuous than the trails around Lake Skadar. Rafting is suitable for ages 7+, as long as you know how to swim!

Mali (1.965 m) and Veliki Žurim (2,035 m) are two fabulous peaks in the corner of Krnovo Plateau, surrounded by other mountains - Lola, Moracke and Vojnik.
