Activity-spurred travellers explore Montenegro’s unspoilt nature, off the beaten tourist tracks. Now easily accessible; start for example at the "Coastal Transversal" and get hooked!
6,000 km of trails are being adapted for our national route network. Hikers and mountainbikers, get prepared for true discoveries...
Montenegro’s Mountaineering Association and several mountaineering clubs as well as non governmental organisations have established the "Montenegrin Coast Transversal”, aiming to expand the coastal tourism to reach the still unexplored natural beauty of Montenegro’s southern hinterland. The result, we are proud to present, is a 182 km transversal hiking trail with 150 km of access paths: winner of the Wild Beauty Award 2007 and one of our national “Top Trails”.
The Transversal Route was inaugurated in 2006 and offers excellent opportunities for active tourists. It starts from the coastal mountains, from Orjen (north of the Bay of Kotor) through Lovćen down south to Rumija. Even a day-trip along this path lets you enjoy breathtaking views; our guests get to know rare Mediterranean plants and herbs as well as historical caravan routes, old military fortifications and places of ethnological interest. Only parts of this trail are suitable for biking, therefore we recommend to follow in this area the Top Trails number 1 or number 5 - or to take some of the local trails, for example in the National Park Lovcen or on the Vrmac peninsula. The route is part of the national development program for "Wilderness Hiking and Biking" - taking you across Montenegro´s stunning beauty.
