Nestled in the heart of the Balkans, the small country of Montenegro is a 'hidden jewel' that lies on the Adriatic coast and boasts some spectacular scenery. Following the break-up of Yugoslavia, it finally achieved independence in June 2006; it’s largest and capital city is Podgorica.

Montenegro is one of Europe's (and the world's) prime biodiversity 'hot-spots'. The number of species per area unit index in Montenegro is 0.837, which is the highest index recorded in any European country! The magnificent Bay of Kotor to Virpazar, on the north-west shore of Lake Skadar, is home to the most westerly breeding population of Dalmatian Pelicans as well as thousands of Pygmy Cormorants, while the forests and jagged (black) mountains of Montenegro's Durmitor National Park, offers excellent raptor-viewing!

Our Montenegro Specialist Recommends

We offer a 9-day tour timed to coincide with the spring bird migration visiting two contrasting locations – Lake Skadar in the south-east, and the forests and mountains of Durmitor National Park inland. Montenegro is not (yet!) on the main Mediterranean tourist trail, so it is an ideal time to explore this little-known European country.
