Montenegro family holiday
Description of Montenegro family holiday
This is a fantastic family holiday in Montenegro, a winning combination of coast and mountains, thrills and relaxation, as you explore many of the country’s most renowned destinations including the glittering Bay of Kotor, and Durmitor National Park.
Travelling as part of a small group limited to 20 people, every member of the family will find it easy to make friends as you share experiences and good times across a week of fun. Plus, you’ll have the company and expertise of a local guide, not only to take care of all the logistics but also to provide a fascinating introduction to Montenegro’s culture and landscapes.
Every day brings a new location, and exciting ways to see it. You’ll get a thorough introduction to the Bay of Kotor, exploring islands, beaches and villages by boat and kayak (with stops for swimming and snorkelling, naturally).
Hiking in Durmitor and Lov?en National Parks afford some stunning views (routes, and picnic spots, carefully chosen with families in mind). In Lov?en, kids with energy to burn can also tackle a high ropes course.
And then, on what is sure to prove a highlight of any Montenegro family holiday, a spot of white-water rafting on the Tara River, passing between the towering walls of Europe’s deepest river canyon. The dramatic scenery rings with laughter and shouts of happiness, and every member of the family may be surprised at what they can do.
Montenegro should be high on the list for any active family looking for somewhere a little different for their next holiday. There are great adventures to be found here, and a warm welcome from expert and enthusiastic guides, locally owned hotels, and the communities you pass through, all framed against some of Europe’s most beguiling natural landscapes.

PlanetOur family tour includes National park Lovcen , National park Durmitor and UNESCO protected Town of Kotor and Kotor Bay area. Each of them features unique environments and rich ecological values, which require corresponding attitude from visitors. Working together with our local guides and companies we will continue to support local community in effort to keep their natural beauty free of all pollution and generate enough income from sustainable tourism. By including the opportunity to visit the National Parks on this holiday we choose to contribute to the excellent record of conservation in recent years through the entrance fees.
As a company we employ responsible policies such as recycling paper, ink cartridges, glass and cardboard; we minimize the use of electricity and conducting the vast majority of our correspondence and promotion via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities.
All of our guides are aware of their surrounding and they are constantly providing the travellers with suggestions of how to minimize potential negative impacts to the environment and marine ecosystems. Our guides emphasize on the importance of leaving the environment as it is. We observe marine life but we do not disturb it.
Our sea kayaks are made of recyclable plastic. They do not cause any form of air or water pollution and they do not produce noise that could be disturbing for marine life.
On our trips we , walk ,hike and paddle off the beaten paths . Traveling on foot and paddling produces no carbon footprint and also slows your pace down so you take in more of the nature that surrounds you.
