1. Montenegro: Durmitor, Tara & Ostrog Monastery Day Trip

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.

What a great experience! It was nice to visit another part of Montenegro which was completely different to Boka Bay. Lots of time spent on the coach, however the scenery is incredible!!! Nice options for breakfast and lunch (not included but reasonable). Company was accommodating and picked us up and dropped us off on route. Great tour guide and safe driver. Words of advice if you are thinking of taking this tour, 1 - wear warm clothes. It may be hot in the bay but there is snow in the north. 2 - take cash because you can't always use your card. Overall great tour and I would reccomend!

Milos was our guide and driver. It was a long day! Totally worth it! We saw a variety of places. The Durmitor National park was lovely. The sacred Ostrod Monastery was touching. Our breakfast and lunch stops were excellent.

It was an incredibly great trip. I saw so much beautiful nature of Montenegro. I would never have discovered and learned so much on my own.

Our guide was super nice and very informative. You can see so many things in just one day

Very good route, a lot of bus time but it is necessary to see these wonderful sites
