Discover Montenegro’s stunning trio of UNESCO World Heritage sites: the historic city of Kotor on the Adriatic coast, the Stećci monumental medieval tombstones in the west of the country, and Durmitor National Park in the north-west.
Go north, to Piva Regional Nature Park, for whitewater-rafting tours on the Tara River, cruising or kayaking on Piva Lake, jeep safaris, and hiking, walking or biking excursions to gorgeous canyons. Waterfall Rafting Center in Šćepan Polje is a well-regarded operator also organising accommodation in wooden cabins or tents and sleeping bags for hire.
Venture to Lake Skadar National Park, a protected wetland area centred on southern Europe’s biggest lake, with wildlife including rare Dalmatian pelicans and endangered otters.
Ski. Durmitor in the National Park (see above) is one of Montenegro’s four low-key ski resorts. The most modern, however, is Kolašin further south.
