A hiking experience in Montenegro among wild peaks and beautiful natural surroundings


The hiking week will certainly surprise us with its variety and nature, which is still untouched in some parts. We will have hiking and mountain tours in the two national parks Prokletije and Durmitor, and in between we will go down the streams of the most beautiful European river, protected under the UNESCO, i.e. the Tara river.

Advance reservations is required.

PROKLETIJE

The Prokletije Mountains are part of the national park of the same name, also known as the Albanian Alps or the Cursed Mountains. They are a mountainous area in the western Balkan Peninsula, stretching from northern Albania to Kosovo and eastern Montenegro. The highest peak is Maya Jezerce (2694 m). They are mighty and inaccessible in winter. In summer, they are more accessible, but still not as massively visited as the Alps. Not to mention the culture, friendliness of the locals and excellent cuisine.

 

DURMITOR

Durmitor, the largest mountain massif and the national park of Montenegro, located in the north-west (NW) of the country, decorated with beautiful glacial lakes of emerald color, is certainly one of the most beautiful pearls of the Montenegrin mountain world. The park includes the entire mountain massif of Durmitor, Pivska lake with the peaks of Pivska planina, the upper parts of the Grabovica and Komarica canyon valleys, the canyon of the Tara river and its tributaries Sušica, Vaškovska river and Draga. The mentioned area was declared a national park in 1952. The highest peak of the Durmitor mountain massif is Bobot's kuk at 2522 meters above sea level. 18 glacial lakes show their beauty, which the locals call 'mountain eyes'. The largest and among the most beautiful is certainly Črno jezero (Black Lake), which got its name from the reflection of the tall coniferous forest that surrounds the lake, and the entire fairy-tale landscape is picturesquely dominated by the peak of Međed. The center of the park is the town of Žabljak, which is also the largest winter center in Montenegro. Durmitor National Park has been on the UNESCO list of world natural and cultural heritage since 1980, and the diversity of flora and fauna is simply exceptional.

DAY 2: Get to know us tour - Ascent of Montenegrin Tromeja - Tromeđa (2366m)

This day we will first drive to the starting point to the Bajrovića katun mountain and then continue via Hridski jezera, Hridski Krš to the famous Tromeja - Tromeđa 2366m. This is a threeborder with Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo. We will descend over a beautiful ridge into the Bogičevica valley. (a variant is also the other way around).

  • Highest point: 2366 m
  • Difficulty: easy

 

DAY 3: Tour Ropojana - lakes under Maya Lake

We will visit the Ropojana valley and walk under the mighty Carnations to the valley's gable and climb to the Albanian side to the glacial lakes below Maya Yezerce. The environment strongly resembles slovenian seven lakes valley, only that they are faster and easier to access. It is a very photogenic environment, and above all, it is peaceful.

  • Time: 6-7 hours
  • Start: 1100 m
  • Highest point: 1800 m
  • Difficulty: easy

 

DAY 4: Rafting Tara

In the early hours, we will drive to the starting point for wild water river rafting on the beautiful Tara River. There we will be treated to a wonderful meal and taken along a picturesque part of the river. In the late afternoon, we drive to Žabljak, where we will stay in one of the apartments or boarding houses.

 

DAY 5: Ascent to Bobotov kuk (2523 m) - the highest peak of Durmitor

We will drive to the saddle, where the area of Durmitor itself will certainly take our breath away. During the ascent to Bobotov kuk (2,523m) we will admire the views of Zubce, Šarene pasovi and the vast mountains below on the plateau. The top part of the climb is a bit more demanding, but the last meters are secured with a steel cable. We will descend in a circular route back to the saddle.

  • Time: 7-8 hours
  • Start: 1900 m
  • Highest point: 2523 m
  • Difficulty: medium difficulty

 

DAY 6: Ascent to Medžed (2287)

Since before us is a climb to a very picturesque peak, which is on all the covers of Durmitor and the lake, we will also take our cameras with us. We will start at Črno jezero and continue into the valley below Sava kuk to Previja. This is followed by an ascent via the secured route with steel wires to the South peak of Veliki Međed 2285m and along the ridge to the Severni vrh and on to Mali Međed. If the route allows us to descend to Kamenjača, we will descend there, otherwise we will go back in the direction of ascent. On the other hand, the path is very erosive and not always passable.
After the return, the feet will relax in the Black Lake.

  • Start: 1450 m

  • Difficulty: medium difficulty (ridge protected by steel wires)

 

DAY 7: Ascent to Sava kuk (2313m)

Sava kuk is considered the holy mountain of Montenegrins, so the visit is more massive. The afternoon is dedicated to last moments and shopping in Žabljak.

  • Time: 3-4 hours
  • Start: 2100 m
  • Highest point: 2313 m
  • Difficulty: easy
