Description of Family break in Montenegro

We're thrilled to share that Montenegro was named one of National Geographic's top destinations for family holidays in 2021!

Take your family on a tailor made activity holiday in Montenegro and unleash your brood on the mountains of the north and the lakes of the south as part of an exciting, and well thought out, variety of outdoor adventures.

This is your chance to go river rafting one day and mountain biking the next with the national parks of Durmitor and Lake Skadar offering endless opportunities to experience life in the great outdoors.

As this is a tailor made holiday you get to choose your own adventure with guided and self-guided activities ensuring you get to experience the very best of Montenegro from all angles. Spending the first half of the week in Durmitor National Park and the second half around the Bay of Kotor allows for two holidays in one – definitely worthwhile for families who like to keep active in body as well as mind.

From trekking over the mountains of Bjelasica and Lovcen to zip-lining over the Tara Canyon and wild swimming in Black Lake, this is one family adventure that you’ll never forget with the added interest of honey farms and vineyards bringing balance to a well-rounded itinerary.

Montenegro is still relatively off the casual tourist radar, especially in the mountains, and if you’re hoping to introduce your family to a simpler pace of life, as well as some exciting adventures, then there’s no better European destination to do just that. Get in touch to find out more.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Most of our tours include the five National parks of Montenegro. Each of them features unique environments and rich ecological values, which require corresponding attitude from visitors. Lake Skadar, the biggest lake at the Balkan peninsula features a very rich bird fauna. In our multi-activity and family tours we offer bird watching with kayaks. These tours are guided by bird protection activists, who are supported by our programms.

We avoid using off-road jeep transfers, since some areas do have a very fragile soil surface. Anyhow we believe in the first line that our feet can take us everywhere. In order to avoid empty transfer kilometers we cooperate with transport providers, who are closest to a starting or pick up point of our tours. We include public transport in our tours where applicable. Eg. transfer by train form the coastline to the north of Montenegro saves 115km on the road.

In general we use almost no printed marketing material. To present our company and products we use tablets. The design works for our website is done by local creatives.

We encourage our guests to use re-fillable waterbottles, since tab water is drinkable in Montenegro.

The Impacts of this Trip

While including as many local people to our tours and we hope to build a bridge between visitors and locals and create better understanding for all day life challenges in Montenegro. Even there is most of the time a huge language barrier, both sides enjoy the direct interaction

We highly value the knowledge and work of our business partners, who most all of them being considered as friends. Our local guides we usually recruit from the Northern parts of Montenegro, since this part of the country provides little opportunities for employment.

Food & produce: Culinary: an integral part of real understanding and enjoyment of a region or country is eating the local food.
This ensures that the local producers see how valuable their produce is, in terms of keeping farming traditions alive, which on one side ensures a maintained landscape, which is on the other side the base for rural tourism. We encourage our guests to buy local produce for souvenirs eg. home made Rakija (spirit), honey products, artisan wines, olive oil products, etc.

We cooperate with farmer communities, which noticed that providing an insight to their daily life up in the mountains describes a special experience for guests. In return this interest in their lifestyle and the generated additional income contributes to make people to stay up in the mountains producing traditional dairy products and maintaining the

Cycling round Kotor bay was probably my favourite activity - so beautiful and a lovely stop-off for lunch in Perast....Sea kayaking was fab and everyone loved that. The family loved the adventure rope park. The trip to the wine and honey farm (run by the owners' parents) was a surprising hit too. Read full review
