Mountain Hikes and Magnificent Kotor Bay

Trip Level

This trip is Level 3+, Moderate. It is a hiking journey with day hikes of four to six hours on most days over moderate to steep mountain terrain. Although we are not at altitude, the trails can be rocky and narrow, and there is a lot of limestone, which can get slippery when wet. You will carry just a daypack on the hikes. Hiking boots that go above the ankle are recommended for the extra support, as well as hiking poles.

The hiking itinerary is planned as we have described it in the preceding pages. However, as in any mountain trip, we will remain flexible with regard to weather and other local conditions in choosing our routes. And do remember that apart from the coastal areas, the tourism infrastructure in Montenegro is still in development and the services, facilities, and quality of hiking trails can be basic.

Please note that in Europe, the dinner hour is considerably later than what it is in the US. We do our best to secure early reservations for our groups, but most often the evening meal will be at 7:30 pm. Rooms in the hotels and inns we stay in are not always of uniform or international size. However, our leaders try their best to assign rooms in a fair way so that all participants experience an equal advantage throughout the trip as a whole. Please note that single rooms in European hotels tend to be small by US standards.

Weather

Temperatures are likely to reach the 60Fs and 70Fs during the day, with cooling breezes and occasional rain. During evenings in the mountainous interior of Montenegro, it can get quite cool, with evening temperatures as low as the high 40Fs and low 50Fs. In the mountains, the weather can change quickly from blue skies to cloudy, wet, and cold, so you should have rain gear and warm garments handy in your daypack. You are likely to experience a full range of weather conditions in Montenegro—pack accordingly, with layers for warmth and weather protection.
