Day 1

Budva Riviera

You’ll arrive in Tivat, close to the Bay of Kotor, and drive to Budva. The old town of Budva is one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast, thought to be around 2,500 years old.

In the old town your group will visit the Citadela Fortress, which offers spectacular views, including tilted rock strata of the coastal fold mountains.

One of the highlights of this itinerary is this chance for your students to wander around the narrow streets with terracotta roofed houses in this picturesque area.

Next, you will set off along the coastal roads to visit the seaside town of Przno and view the exclusive picturesque island and beach resort Saint Stefan (Sveti Stefan).

Day 2

Mount Lovcen Summit, Perast, Our Lady of the Rock and Kotor Old Town

You will first visit the mighty Lovcen mountain which gave Montenegro (black mountain) its name, situated in Lovcen National Park. From the viewing platform you will be able to see most of the small country including Lake Skadar and Kotor.

The summit of Mount Lovcen is also home to the mausoleum of a great philosopher and leader Petar Petrovic Njegos II, who is a very important figure in Montenegrin history.

You will descend from the mountain down the scenic Serpentine Road to arrive in the Bay of Kotor. This bay is a submerged river valley known as a ria.

This stunning bay is lined with picturesque old towns such as Perast which offers a short boat ride to the equally beautiful islet, Our Lady of the Rocks. Students will learn about the islet’s creation, history and see a selection of artwork inside the church itself before heading back to shore to continue exploring.

The walled old town of Kotor is steeped in history and though much of it was destroyed in the 1979 earthquake, it has been restored to its former glory.

Day 3

Skadar Lake National Park and Lipa Limestone Caves

Begin your last full day at a quaint village called Viprazar, a quintessentially Montenegrin country village, surrounded by lush greenery.

At first glance, Skadar Lake might appear to be a narrow winding river but in fact this illusion is created by meadows of water lilies as they collect on the surface dark water.

You group will take a cruise on the lake to see this unique feature for themselves. Lake Skadar is also known as a haven for bird life, over 263 species call the lake home.

The next stop is a must-see destination for geographers. Lipa Cave, a huge underground karst cave which is the first and only cave open to tourists in Montenegro. Students will be guided through the cave to view the formations and underground river.

Day 4

Depart Tivat airport

Head home after this brief but magical visit to Montenegro.
