While it may be one of Europe’s smallest countries, there is no shortage of amazing outdoor activities here. From boat trips in the bays around Kotor and swimming on the beaches of Budva to hiking, mountaineering and ski touring in the Kolasin and Durmitor regions, there is plenty to keep you occupied for all your time here.
Tucked in between the Adriatic Sea, a tiny sliver of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania, this tiny former Yugoslav Republic is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise.
In the winter, its numerous mountains make for excellent ski touring and splitboarding. Snowshoeing and snowboarding are also popular in the mountains as well.
When the summer comes either head to one of the country’s world-class beaches on the coast or make your way into the mountains for more adventures. Montenegro offers excellent places for rock climbing, canyoning, hiking and mountain biking.
Back on the coast, you might also indulge in some kite surfing as well as kayaking in one of the country’s numerous outlets. Whatever it is you want to do, you’re sure to find it in Montenegro.
During the summer, Montenegro has beautiful weather. Average daily temperatures are around 27ºC. It is, of course, a bit cooler at higher elevations. During the winter, temperatures hover around freezing, but do get colder in the mountains. For most of the year, the country is quite sunny, but it does get snow during the winter, which tends to stick until March.
Just about the only way to get to Montenegro is by flying into the international airport outside of Podgorica (TGD). It can be reached via transfers from most major European cities.
For ski touring, the best time to visit Montenegro is from January to March. Other activities are best done in the summer, which stretches from May to September.
