22 September 2019: Itinerary

We fly from London to Dubrovnik and drive on to our hotel in Tivat, a coastal town in southwest Montenegro, which is located in the Bay of Kotor. We will be staying at the Hotel Pine, a newly refurbished establishment with its own beach situated just five metres from the hotel itself.

Meals include: Dinner

Sveti Andrija is a fortress superbly placed high above Perast, along the Montenegro Coastal Transversal route. Our hike starts from the village of Orahovac with a gradual climb on an old Austro-Hungarian road dating from 1880. The path weaves through small forests, past old military posts and around remains of villages offering impressive views of Boka Bay to reach the fortress at approximately 750 metres above sea level. After taking in the panoramic views, the descent zigzags steeply along a ruined horse path to the picturesque town of Perast, with glimpses of the islands of ‘Sv. Djordje’ (Monastery) and ‘Gospa od Skrpelja’ (Our Lady of the Rock) being seen along the way.

Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The Austrian fortress, Vrmac

The Vrmac mountain range, dividing the Kotor and Tivat bays from the Bay of Kotor, has always played an important strategic role for military control over the adjacent territories. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which gained power over the Montenegrin lands in the XIX century, built in these places the defensive fortress Vrmac.

The fortress Vrmac refers to the type of entrenched fortresses, which were surrounded by an earthen rampart. The enemy, in order to take such a fortress, would first have to attack the rampart, and only then somehow force a deep and wide anti-personnel ditch with caponiers – metal stakes with barbed wire.

Gornja Lastva

Stone, as basic building material, and Mediterranean flora, hiding the settlement of Gornja Lastva from view, reflect the recognisable Mediterranean atmosphere. From the early days of the settlement, stone houses were built and torn down only to be replaced by newer, modern ones. Although many of the houses and pertaining stone walls were deserted and destroyed in time, the authenticity of the traditional method of building and overall environment was never disturbed.

Gornja Lastva was a self-sustainable system – enough food was being produced to satisfy the needs as there were seven olive mills, one water mill for grain threshed on 12 threshing floors, 24 wells and 5 capping. On nearby slopes there were numerous vineyards, olive groves and orchards. Gornja Lastva had its own local government until World War II, it had its own school since 1845, parish priest, tamburitza orchestra, and so on. People from Gornja Lastva were good craftsmen – masons in particular. Many of them navigated on board Bokelian ships.

This day is dedicated to exploring the national park at Skadar Lake. We cross the mountain range that divides Lake Skadar from the Adriatic Sea and arrive in Virpazar, where we board a boat. The panoramic cruise begins here and while you travel, you can admire the wildlife of National Park Skadar Lake. Water birds, toads, and carpets of lily pads all contribute to this amazing scenery. The boat trip ends at the historic settlement of Rijeka Crnojevića, locally known as the place where the first book in South Slavic language was printed. Enjoy a lunch in the tranquil atmosphere of this place while you walk through this romantic settlement, located on the banks of the river of the same name. 

Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A well-deserved break is upon us. Today we can enjoy time spent at leisure, so why not shop for souvenirs, explore the surrounding areas or perhaps simply relax in the comfort of your hotel.

Meals include: Breakfast

High up in the hills midway between Budva and Cetinje, the artfully abandoned 19th century Kosmac fortress looms over some spectacular high-altitude scenery. On your route, walk along Jegor path to the Monastery of Praskvica. This path from Celobrdo village to Praskvica was built over a period of ten years by the hand of Jegor Stroganov, a monk from Russia, in the early 19th century. Monastery Praskvica near Sveti Stefan, is one of the oldest and most important monasteries in the Coastal Region.

Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We start our hike from Radovici village along an old Austrian path to Tici village. Afterwards, you visit a family who traditionally produces organic extra virgin olive oil. Visit a well-preserved ancient olive press and learn about traditional techniques of this work. An olive oil tasting and only homemade products await us for lunch.

Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we say goodbye and make our way back to the airport, where we catch our return flights back to London. 

Meals include: Breakfast
