Full description

See the picturesque countryside of Montenegro on a guided tour from Kotor. Admire clear lakes, spectacular coasts, the famous Ostrog Monastery, and more.

Take your first photo stop shortly after leaving Kotor and capture the beauty of two nearby islands, Our Lady of the Rocks and Saint George. Move to higher elevations for a second photo stop above Risan Bay.

Continue to Nikšić, the second biggest city in Montenegro, and make another stop for pictures at the artificial Salty Lake. Take a much-needed breakfast break after your morning sightseeing and enjoy some tasty local food and drink.

Drive towards Mount Durmitor, where rocky peaks rise high into the sky. Pass dense pine and colorful deciduous forest. Stop at Đurđevića Tara Bridge, the highest in Europe when built in 1940. Cross the 365-meter-long bridge, 172 meters above the canyon floor if you´d like.

Proceed to the hidden jewel of Durmitor National Park, the majestic Black Lake, among 18 glacial lakes above 1,500 meters on Durmitor Mountain. All together they are called "Mountain Eyes". Embark on a hike on the 4-kilometer trail around the lake.

Stop at Žabljak, the highest town in the Balkans, located at 1,450 meters above sea level. Dine on a lunch of traditional Montenegrin food. Afterward, hit the road towards the most visited spiritual site in Montenegro, the Ostrog Monastery.

Begin your ascent up the narrow and winding road close to sunset, enjoying spectacular views of the highly-perched monastery. View the relics of the monk Vasilije Ostroški, who founded the place. Return to Kotor at the end of your tour.

We had a fantastic day and highly recommend this tour. Our guide Slavko was amazing , informative and went over the history of Montenegro in a very interesting way. He has a great sense of humor and made the long day goes by pretty quickly. The nature of North Montenegro is amazing!

Fantastic trip with incredibly beautiful nature. A really good guide who spoke fluent English and was good at conveying the story. We got to try the zip-line over the beautiful bridge - absolutely fantastic and you do not have to cheat yourself when you leave. The trip did not end until 21.30. But fantastic trip☘️

Excellent experience with 360 Monte on this tour. Our guide Jelena and our driver Marco were exceptional. Of all the trips I have done so far anywhere, I haven’t enjoyed or laughed as much as I did on this one. Jelena is very informative and engaging and went out of her way to show us around and tell us the history of Yugoslavia and Montenegro. She is funny, witty and laughs at her own jokes. Marco is a really good driver, always with a smile. He picked us up from Budva early in the morning and drove us to Kotor to join the rest of the group. Then he drove over 450kms during the day and he was still as energetic at the end of the trip as he was at the start. Big thanks to both of the team for making the trip a truly memorable one. We enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to everyone who wishes to have a packed introduction to Montenegro. Be forewarned that this is a super long trip with lot of time in coach but Jelena’s jokes make up for it.
