It is known that the first capital of Montenegro was Žabljak Crnojevića on Skadar Lake, then in one place called Obod was opened the first state printing office in 1494, only 50 years after the printing press was found! A large number of monasteries are located on the islands of Skadar Lake, as well as Grmozur – King Nikola’s Island Prison, a large number of small sandy beaches – great for swimming during hot summer days, many traditional restaurants with fish specialities, among which stand out smoked carp.

When we say Skadar Lake, a fantastic wine comes to our mind! The area has a changing Mediterranean climate, so people have been involved in grape growing and wine production for centuries. So, without tasting homemade wine and smoked carp, you can’t say that you visited Skadar Lake. That’s why we will have lunch in some traditional restaurant.

Back to the hotel in the late afternoon. Free time for rest or wandering around. Overnight.

The first stop will be in Morača Monastery, the orthodox monastery from the 13th century, located on the right bank of the river Moraca.

The journey continues through the canyon of river Morača, also known as canyon Platije. The road is reflected in a total of 32 tunnels, some of which run for miles through the rocky interior of the mountains, and some just like arches, cut through a large rock. Arrive at National Park “Biogradska Gora” and a visit to the beautiful Biograd Lake.

National park “Biogradska Gora” was established as a national park in 1952. And it was the first protected area in Montenegro because earlier in 1878.

Prokletije-high-peaks-green-meadowsProkletije is the fifth national park in Montenegro, established in 2009. “Zla Kolata” is the highest peak of this mountain as well as of Montenegro. The Prokletije area is administratively divided between Albania, Serbia – Kosovo, and Montenegro. After its imposing appearance and high sharp peaks, the term “Balkan Alps” is often used to describe Prokletije.

After breakfast in the hotel, we drive to the Katun Popadija, the starting point for a hiking tour. It is located at the foot of the cirque which descends from the surrounding peaks of Trojan and Popadija. Walking through this seemingly harsh but very hospitable mountain is a real pleasure for all visitors. Some parts of the trail lead through the beech forest, which is perfect to escape from hot summer days for a while. The paths are mostly shepherd’s paths through vivid green pastures, surrounded by magnificent mountain peaks. From the pass, Ćafa (1.874 m) opens a magnificent view of the grassy, gentle slopes of Volušnica, the peaks Popadija (2.030m) and Talijanka (2.057m). Opposite them, the slopes of the massif Karanfili rise vertically and with its appearance leave speechless every visitor.

Accommodation, meals & activities

Accommodation:
In the itinerary, for each day, you can see separately which place as well as what type of accommodation you will be staying at.

All this means that you get the best possible accommodation with the most attractive location, which will cost you nothing more.

Many tour operators have accommodation located on the outskirts of the city or a long way from attractive places to get a lower price in their travel programs. In this way, passengers are given additional transport costs and the loss of precious time during the stay to visit the desired location. That’s why we want it to be our last option, and that the guest gets the best accommodation on all destinations during the tour.

E.g. we do so because instead of your hotel of 4 stars, you may get a 5 stars hotel, or perhaps a better location, facilities or other if it is the same hotel class.
