Autumn Multi Adventure Yoga Holiday in Montenegro
Montenegro, September 14th - 21st & 21st - 28th 2024
Join us for an exhilarating hiking yoga holiday Montenegro for an adventure week in a beautiful country.
If you are a lover of the great outdoors then our multi-adventure yoga holiday in our olive mill in Montenegro is for you.
Montenegro is a beautiful and yet still untouched country just outside Europe, bordering Croatia. It has everything you could dream of, mountains, vast lakes, beaches, waterfalls and wild swimming areas. We have planned a week to showcase all that this untouched area of the world has to offer.
For your week-long hiking and adventure yoga holiday, you can expect a relaxed yet exhilarating itinerary, with breathtaking hikes and walks, boat excursions, beautiful day trips and more, with 3 hours of yoga per day.
Come and stay in our much-loved venue, we have been staying here for 8 years and it is situated in a great place for easy access to country walks and hikes, waterfalls and rivers, the local historical village of Stari Bar, lake Skadar and the beach. You can choose to be as active or relaxed as you like on this adventure and everything is included in the price as soon as you arrive on Montenegro turf.
Our accommodation is a rustic renovated olive mill, with single room options as well as a twin and some triples, with a large relaxed communal space, or if you prefer to be outside, there is a large garden with an outdoor plunge pool to cool down. If you’re an animal lover, there are two cats and chickens! This accommodation is of simple design (the original mill is several hundred years old), so you won’t find mod-cons – but its character and peaceful setting make it very special.

Explore the untouched beauty of Montenegro on our walking and yoga holidays. Sandwiched between Croatia in the north and Albania in the south – all three countries having a coastline in the Mediterranean and Adriatic sea, Montenegro has a variety of jaw dropping landscapes that would surprise anyone.
Next to the Croatia border are the Montenegro Fjords around the city of Kotor where the cruise ships sail down. Moving along the coastline where the mountains meet the sea with spectacular cliffs to the north and enjoy sandy beaches down in the south. The rugged landscape inland along windy roads and stunning scenery lead you to Lake Skadar is where Albania and Montenegro meet with a dramatic mountain range. Inland to the north there are the Durmittor Mountains where you can ski in winter! Where we are located in a village called Stari Bar we are close enough to enjoy a whole day hike up the highest mountain in Montenegro – Rumija. With views of fjords and the sea on one side and the rolling hills on the other.
There really is something for every holiday preference in this untouched country from Montenegro walking holidays or the more relaxing yoga breaks Montenegro can offer. They use the currency the Euro but are not part of Europe yet, so the holiday maker can benefit from affordable pricing, unlike its sister country Croatia.
Stari Bar is also a quaint small village steeped in history with a fort to explore and cosy restaurants to relax in. And we mustn’t forget the wild swimming pools that each hike leads to.
