The “land of the black mountains” has its own unique charm, with the breathtaking Bay of Kotor and its magnificent mountainous landscape. A holiday in Montenegro is ideal for nature lovers: Spectacular landscapes, secluded bays and UNESCO protected old towns are just a few of the stunning highlights of this coutnry. In 2022 we are not able to offer any trips in this beautiful country. May there is a chance in 2023. We will keep you informed.
South of the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, along the Adriatic Coast is one of the youngest countries in the world: Montenegro. The diversity of this small nation is what makes the country so spectacular. The Bay of Kotor alone makes a holiday in Montenegro worthwhile. The bay, with its steep limestone cliffs, is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the Adriatic and one of the best places to visit in Montenegro. Scattered around the bay are beautiful medieval towns such as Tivat and the fortified town of Herceg Novi, nestled into the slopes of the mighty mountains. Taking a turn for more rugged terrain, the mountains are a must-see natural spectacle.
On our hotel and bike tour through Montenegro we will visit UNESCO protected cities such as the old town of Kotor and Budva as well as the former capital of Montenegro, Cetinje. Enjoy a boat trip on the beautiful Scutari Lake and discover the small Adriatic island of Sveti Stefan near Budva. Despite its small size, a holiday in Montenegro has everything a traveller’s heart could desire.
The coast of Montenegro has a Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny, and dry summers and moderately cool winters. The average temperature in summer is around 25°C (77°F) to 30°C (86°F) with plentiful sunshine. Beach side holidays in Montenegro are possible until October with water temperatures remaining between 25°C (77°F) and 28°C (82°F) until then. Winters are mild with temperatures ranging between 4°C (39°F) and 11°C (52°F) with water temperatures remaining between 10°C (50°F) and 12°C (54°F).
The mountain regions such as Dinaric, with mountains reaching over 2,000m in height, have a very different climate. Various fall winds coming in from the coast, some of which can reach gale force, are not uncommon: these include the warm-humid Jugo, the pleasant Maestral and the cold-dry Bora. Montenegro also lays claim to the rainiest place in Europe, Crkvice, with rainfall of 5,000 mm per year. The lower altitudes of the region have warm summers and cold, snowy winters while higher in the mountains there is an alpine climate with year-round snow-covered peaks.
The Dinaric Alps have a distinctly different climate to the coastal Mediterranean climate in the west. A moderate, continental climate prevails in the east of the country. In the plains around the capital, Podgorica, the summers are hot and dry and the winters are cold.

The official currency in Montenegro is the euro.
The German Mark was introduced as the official currency in 1999. However, since the changeover from the German Mark to the Euro in 2002, the Euro has been the national currency in the country. Since Montenegro is not (yet) a member of the European Union, it does not have the right to mint its own coins.
Credit cards (e.g. Visa, MaterCard, Maestro, American Express, Diners) are accepted at most hotels, restaurants and cafes, petrol stations, and shops.
