Stroll through apple and plum orchards and maybe get the chance to pick your own fruit, bike through the countryside, or take a walk along the clear rivers and lakes. Savour the taste of organic food grown and cooked by your hosts, make sweets or jam, and marvel as all your senses come alive as you reconnect with nature and your inner self.
More about active vacation, food, accommodation, and the offer of rural households, find on the page of associated households of Montenegro - Rural Tourism.
The delicious sweets you make are the best souvenirs!
Pick your own fresh raspberries, blackberries, and chokeberries while relaxing in the countryside. You might even get to use them to make sweets, juice, or jam in the household where you stay. These are the flavors and aromas you literally carry with you and never forget.
Spend a few days among the guardians of rural life traditions
The fact that the majority of Montenegrin villages are located in protected areas demonstrates how valuable a stay in the countryside is. Protected regions in Montenegro are truly unique, from the pristine glacial lakes known as "mountain eyes,"to temperate ancient rainforests to plunging canyons to important bird habitats. Nationally protected areas include stunning locales such as Lovćen, Skadar Lake, Piva Nature Park, Biogradska Gora, and many more.
Whether your favorite village is in the Adriatic hinterland or in the country's northern wilderness, the magnificent nature, customs, peace, and greenery will all contribute to an authentic and unforgettable experience. You will be truly immersed in Montenegrin traditional way of life if you visit Njeguše, Gornja Lastva, Limljani, Zagarač, Lubnice, and Japan villages, and you can also stop at tourist ethno villages in the area of Piva, along the canyons of Tara and Komarnica, in the primeval forest of Biogradska Gora, Durmitor, and many others.
Feel right at home and part of the village family
The very heart of Montenegro is her people, who have long been known for their kind, gracious, and hospitable nature. The warmth of the village household and the people who welcome you will lead you to new friendships during your relaxing vacation, and you can put your hands and mind to work alongside them in the garden, orchards, and fields if you are in the mood.
Fill up baskets with fresh chokeberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, or strawberries, and revel in the explosion of flavors provided by Montenegro's awarded nature. Perhaps now is the time to learn how to make sweets, juices, ajvar, or jam. Why not?! One thing is certain, it is the time to travel to the countryside and immerse yourself in Montenegrin village life.
