Discover Montenegro

Montenegro School Trips

At just 100 kilometres from head to toe, Montenegro’s landscapes are simply incredible. Breathtaking beaches lined with glistening azure waters comparable to those of neighbouring Croatia, lush mountainscapes leading the way to dramatic sweeping valleys and charming villages await. History buffs will get to experience everything from Roman ruins to ancient monasteries, whilst those in search of a more cosmopolitan experience can keep their eyes peeled for celebrities and socialites in a string of waterfront cafés and bars – particularly in the trendy postcard islet of Sveti Stefan.

Although in no way a typical tourist trap, much of Montenegro’s visitors flock to the country’s beautiful beaches. If you want to escape the crowds, get off the beaten track in the Durmitor mountain range or explore the lush virgin forest of Biogradska Gora. Adventure seekers can try hiking, ziplining or perhaps get your adrenaline pumping on a water rafting excursion.

Home to the sweeping Bay of Kotor, a visit to Kotor comes highly recommended on a school trip with us. Wander along cobbled streets in the shadows of distinct red rooftops in the medieval town centre, and don’t forget to take a moment to appreciate the fjord-like valleys that surround. Or, perhaps explore Budva’s typical Montenegrin architecture, featuring an ancient orthodox church, archaeological museum and a 15th century fortress.

As experts in travel to Europe, we pride ourselves on our knowledge of the region at Discover the World Education. This allows us to work with you to ensure that your school trip is fully customised to ensure your learning objectives are met. We will work with you to help you create an itinerary which is educationally relevant, enriching and engaging.

About Montenegro

Fringed by the glistening Adriatic Sea, Montenegro is a pocket-sized destination that’s bursting at the seams with picture-postcard landscapes. Rugged mountains, cerulean seas, quaint villages and towns, and five national parks are just waiting to be explored. Montenegro shares its borders with five states: Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Albania and Serbia. Although many UK travellers reach Montenegro via an easy border crossing from the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, you can also fly direct to the country’s  international airport Tivat through a number of carriers including easyJet.

A visit to at least one of the country’s national parks is a must: Lovcen, Biogradska or Durmitor. The most visited of them all is the Durmitor National Park, an international biosphere reserve. It’s famed for its 1,300 metre-deep Tara River Canyon and no less than eighteen glacial lakes, known locally as gorske oci or ‘mountain eyes’. Explore on foot on one of the park’s many trekking routes or head underground to discover so much more of Montenegro’s natural beauty amidst a world of hidden caves.

Steeped in a long and complex history, Montenegro, or Black Mountain, offers more than an impressive landscape. Want to know more? Converse with the local Montenegrin, and you’ll soon be a part of many fascinating discussions about 600-year-old events such as the split of the Roman Empire and the wars with the Ottoman Turks.

Whatever your reasons for choosing Montenegro as your next destination, one thing is certain; your students and teachers will have a trip of a life time, facilitated by knowledgeable experts in travel to the region.
