Paragliding

Petar Lončar, the first pilot in the world to fly a paraglider across all seven continents, once said that, “Only Durmitor will be never forgotten!” Paragliding in Montenegro provides immense pleasure, whether you're flying over mountain lakes - known as mountain eyes - or gently spiraling down to the sunny beaches of Budva.
