The first day of the Montenegro itinerary starts with the most attractive sites on the coastline, Budva, Kotor, and Perast. Depending on your location, we can arrange for a convenient pick-up to start the tour. Our experienced guides will take you on a 45-minute guided tour of Budva, followed by some free time for you to explore and enjoy the charm of this beautiful town on your own. If you visit during the summer months, swimming in crystal clear blue water might be a great way to spend your free time.

After Budva, we will drive for 30 minutes to the UNESCO-listed town of Kotor. From there, embark on a 1.5-hour Old Town guided tour where you’ll visit the 12th-century Cathedral and Maritime Museum. If you are an active traveler, we suggest you explore Kotor in the best way possible, and that’s by climbing the city walls for a breathtaking view of Kotor old town and its bay.

Next, the trip continues towards Perast, a baroque pearl of the Adriatic. You’ll have plenty of time to stroll the picturesque streets and admire the stunning baroque architecture before boarding a boat to the artificial Island of Our Lady of the Rock. Impressive treasury and the unique church will make the ending of the Bay of Kotor visit.

Experience the best of Montenegro’s mountain beauty on your second-day trip. We will start our drive from Budva up to the mountains of Montenegro, enjoying the panorama of its Riviera. After 45 minutes, we will arrive in Cetinje, the old royal capital of Montenegro. In Cetinje, we are visiting a royal palace that tells the story of Montenegrins most famous dynasty Petrovic and their rule from the 17th to 20th century. Since Cetinje is located in the mountain area, some free time spent in the fresh air will fulfill your impression!

After Cetinje, we proceed to Lovcen National Park. This world-famous national park is surrounded by oak forests and outstanding natural beauty that will leave you breathless. Driving through forest tunnels, we will get to the top of the mountain (1660 m above sea level, 461 steps from the parking lot), where the mausoleum of Peter II Petrovic Njegos is located. Breathtaking views from the mountaintop and the story of the greatest Montenegrin poet and philosopher will help you understand the Montenegrin spirit.

From Lovcen Mountain, we will go to the village Njegusi, famous for the production of smoked ham and cheese. In a local restaurant we will learn how they make it and, of course, taste it!

This day will finish with an astonishing drive back to your hotel, with 25 switchbacks from where we will enjoy the best views of the Bay of Kotor that you can get!

Unforgettable journey!

What an amazing experience! I was looking forward to our trip to Montenegro and this 5 days in Montenegro tour. Wandering around the old town of Kotor, a road trip from Budva to Sveti Stefan, Lovcen National Park, and Ostrog Monastery exceeded our expectations. This tour was everything we wanted! Huge thanks to our fabulous tour guide and Miro and Sons for such an amazing opportunity.

We seeked the best time to visit Montenegro and chose summer. Between a cruise ship tour or five days spent in Montenegro, we decided to stay and have a stress-free trip. We booked this tour, and it was the best decision we could have made! We got an in-depth understanding of the culture and history of Montenegro, and we visited many incredible places! If you really want to explore Montenegro to the fullest, this is the tour you should take!
