MONTENEGRO DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Montenegro in a way like no other. It’s only a third of the size of Switzerland, yet Montenegro is easily one of the most impressive countries in Europe. Surrounded by the Adriatic sea, the snowy Durmitor Mountains and the surreal Lake Skadar, Montenegro is teeming with natural beauty. Soak up the golden coastline, raft down River Tara in Europe’s deepest canyon, and hike through rocky mountains to find bears, wolves and wildflower meadows. When you take a Montenegro trip with Trafalgar, you’ll discover the history of the country, from the medieval walls of Budva, to the ancient frescoes of Podmaine Monastery. With influences from the east and west, you can see ornate mosques, Roman Catholic churches, cliffside monasteries and formidable fortresses dating back hundreds of years. We'll also introduce you to the cheerful Montenegrins, and you’ll quickly find yourself sharing stories and enjoying a dish of fresh seafood by the ocean. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
