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.

"Wow, what an amazing week. I've been home for 4 days, and despite the gloomy UK weather, I feel like I'm still glowing!
We stayed in a beautiful converted mill in the foothills of southern Montenegro. The garden was glorious, with an assortment of kittens, chickens, and occasional dogs to keep us company. The accommodation was comfortable, if basic. The cooking was exceptional - thank you Magda! Almost entirely vegan, with tons of variety, big portions, and great flavours.
Lizzie is a lovely yoga instructor, and paced the class to the energy and capabilities of the class. My pains had really eased off by the middle of the week.

"I had the most wonderful time in Montenegro! I've never come back from a holiday feeling so rested and restored. The location was spectacular, and the morning dips in the waterfall were the perfect way to wake up before morning yoga sessions! Yoga with Felicity was great, as was the food. I will definitely be booking a holiday with Adventure Yogi, and more trips to Montenegro, in the future."
