I have hiked a lot but the views in Montenegro are one of the best. While the accommodation and food are rather basic, you will be taken care of very well and simple is good. Our guide Radonja was very knowledgeable about Montenegro, its history, culture and nature. His English was perfect. He was on a mission to make the week memorable and he definitely oversucceeded. It was a total relax from my busy city life. Exactly what I needed.
