Parks, Historical Sites and Other Attractions
Montenegro’s extraordinary landscape is never short of incredible experiences in every season. Majestic mountains rear up from astoundingly blue waters. Coastal towns sun their red roofs on the shoreline. Wild meadows and olive groves are alive with the scents of herbs and flowers. Montenegro is truly a feast for the senses.
Coastline: Montenegro lays claim to 293 km (182 miles) of coastline, as varied as it is beautiful. Take a boat from Luštica Bay’s marina and you can take your time discovering the clear-as-glass waters, sandy beaches, and sheltered coves.
Historic Villages: The Chedi Luštica Bay’s team can arrange unique excursions to the small, nearby fishing villages of Rose and Zanjic, where old-world traditions live and breathe.
Bay of Kotor: This fjord has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. A cozy region possessed of immense beauty, enclosing rocky mountains, intimate beaches, preserved medieval towns (such as Kotor, Perast, and Herceg Novi), and historic monuments.
Trašte Bay: The clear calm waters here are ideal for kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling. Diving reveals underwater limestone caves, ancient archaeological ruins, and diverse marine life.
National Parks: Admire astounding views from Njegoš (the highest mausoleum in the world) in Lovćen National Park. Or visit Lake Skadar National Park and kayak around the largest lake in the Balkans, where looking-glass waters afford beautiful exploration by boat, or on foot. inland Durmitor National Park is a rugged and dramatic region of soaring mountains, canyons, and glacial lakes. Prokletije National Park is so untouched that it contains half the flora and fauna in Montenegro. Whether hiking, biking, horse-riding, rafting, or kayaking, these parks offer untapped adventure.
Ski Resorts: Montenegro’s long (October-April) ski season is an ideal time to visit its two major ski resorts: Kolašin 1450 and Žabljak. Both offer spectacular views, wide, quiet slopes and the promise of local mulled wine at the end of a run.
