Montenegro is located in the Southeast of Europe, resting on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is bordered to the North by Bosnia and Herzegovina, to the East by Serbia and Kosovo, to the South by Albania, and to the west by Croatia. The ancient lands of the country hold a collection of outside cultural influences, including the empires of both Byzantine and Ottoman, the federation of Yugoslavia, and a number of periods of independence.
Due to the small size of the country, the capital city of Podgorica is a good place to start when heading towards the splitboarding regions.
Some of the splitboarding can be quite challenging, so being fit and in decent shape before arriving will maximise enjoyment of the activity.
The villages, towns and cities in Montenegro are full of fascinating and rich histories and culture which they are very proud of, providing endless hours of exploration and discovery, thus ensuring there is always something to see and do.
The effects of the relatively recent war in the 1990’s still permeate some areas, so please be sensitive when bringing up this issue.
The climate of Montenegro varies from Mediterranean along the coast regions to continental as you move more inland. Here the winters are cooler given the higher altitude. And in the far north, the highlands resemble an alpine climate.
Flights to Tivat and Podgorica from Eastern Europe, alternatively fly to Dubrovnik in Croatia from most European hubs and then drive/bus to Montenegro.
December-February, when the snowfall is heaviest and weather coldest.
