Durmitor Trekking Adventure
Durmitor National Park is best visited during the months of July, August, and September. Trekking takes place primarily in the vicinity of Žabljak and on the National Park's lakes.
We recommend the "Durmitor Ring" and the Ćurevac viewpoint for trekking and panoramic tours. These routes necessitate substantial physical fitness and stamina, as well as hiking in organized groups rather than solo.
If you want to explore Prokletije, you can begin in the quiet town Plav, where most tours begin. Summer is the best time to go trekking, but even then, you might have a surprise run-in with some snow! Easy hiking trails can be found in Grebaja, near Gusinje, Plavsko Lake, and on the stretch from Babino Polje to Hridsko Lake.
The nature of Prokletije in the Plav and Gusinje municipalities will delight you with all of its options. Which of the 77 peaks with elevations greater than 2,000 meters above sea level will you choose? Or perhaps one of the three peaks that rise more than 2500 meters above sea level? It's up to you to choose.
Durmitor and Prokletije trekking tours are among the most demanding. The group tour organizers provide overnight stays, licensed guides, transportation during the arrangement, free parking, and a recording of the adventure. Fill your backpack with memories and enjoy a trekking adventure in Montenegro!
Going to the mountain in organized groups with a certified and licensed mountain guide is the safest option!
A list of certified and licensed mountain guides can be found on the Mountaineering Association of Montenegro's website. Hiking and trekking require adequate equipment, including proper footwear, layered clothing, quality mountaineering equipment, and personal documents. You can learn more information about guides and necessary equipment from mountaineering clubs, hike hosts and guides, national park information centers, and local tourist organizations.
Avoid going on tours by yourself. Remember, you use the trails at your own risk.
