Highlights of Southern Montenegro Walk

  • Set your sights on the most spectacular views from Mount Lovćen, the black mountain that gave Montenegro its name
  • Discover Lake Skadar, one of Montenegro's hidden gems
  • Stay in UNESCO Kotor, the most famous town in Montenegro

Discover the spectacular Montenegrin coastline, considered one of the most beautiful walking areas in Southern Europe. From ancient monasteries to atmospheric villages, this coastal region has much to offer a keen walker.

Our hotel to hotel 7-night walking holiday allows you to explore the diversity of Montenegro's culture and landscapes. Uncover the beauty of the Bay of Kotor located on the glistening turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Walk in the magnificent Lovćen National Park, home to the mausoleum of famous poet and ruler Petar II Petrovic Njegos and the former imperial capital of Cetinje. Explore Lake Skadar National Park, featuring the largest lake in the Balkans. This area is distinguished by its rich ecological system and has been recognised as an internationally important area for its flora and fauna.

Walking information

The walking around the Kotor Fjord can be very steep in places, particularly on days 3 & 4. The ascent on day 4 is approx. 900m. The walks are on mule paths which are generally well built and stony with large coping stones on the downhill edges. Once you reach the high interior plateau, the going becomes easier, with gradual descents towards Centinje and Lake Skadar.

Day 2: Bay of Kotor Walk: Muo to Stoliv 14KM/9MI/4.5HRS

Today's walk takes you up through cyclamen-strewn woods to the ridge of the peninsula separating the Bay of Kotor and the outer part of the Bay of Tivat. You climb up to the mighty Vrmac fortress; built in 1892 it remains almost completely intact. From here you follow the ridge to the summit of Vrmac, Saint Ilija (765m) before descending through chestnut woods via an abandoned village to Stoliv. Transfer back to Kotor.
Stay in Kotor (breakfast included)

Day 3: Perast Walk 12KM/7.5MI/5HRS

After a short transfer to the village of Orahovac, follow a zig-zag trail on the northern side of the Kotor Channel. You are initially walking through woods before reaching a col and the ruins of the Vranovo Brdo fortress. From here you emerge at a wonderful viewpoint where breathtaking views of the Kotor Channel and the Adriatic Coast await you. Continue to Perast, with its ancient churches and houses. We meet you and take you back to your accommodation in Kotor.

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Gillian Struthers, 26/09/2023

We enjoyed our first Headwater holiday after years with New Experience. We miss the personal touch of NewEx and dealing with Anna and Matthew but we appreciate times have moved on - and Headwater didn’t disappoint. The Montenegrin local company 3E are absolutely superb and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Taxi services always on time and what a benefit having a tourist SIM card provided



We don’t think some of the footpaths have been walked much and the instructions for the walk from Lovcen National Park to Cetinje are out of date and could d9 with revision
