Location

The landscapes of Durmitor, in terms of beauty, are rarely an authentic work of nature. The mountain is also a national park in the northwest of Montenegro. The relief of Durmitor is characterized by a vast plateau at 1,500 m above sea level, intersected by deep canyon valleys from which rise imposing mountain peaks, of which 48 are with altitudes over 2000 m. The highest is Bobotov kuk sa 2.523 m.

The national park Durmitor includes the basic mountain mass of Durmitor, parts and areas of the lake and Piva mountain, the upper parts of the canyon valleys Grabovica and Komarnica, the canyon valley of the river Tara and the canyons of its tributaries Susica, Vaskovska river and Draga. The national park is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. One of the greatest decorations of Durmitor are glacial lakes created by the work of glaciers during the ice age. At over 1,500 meters above sea level there are 18 glacial lakes, with clear and cold water, and the people call them "mountain eyes". The biggest and most beautiful is Crno jezero (Black Lake). It got its name because of the reflection of the high coniferous forest that surrounds it.

On this exciting tour, there will be three days of active hiking where you will get to know and experience Durmitor in the best way. Fans of true hiking can expect an adrenaline-fueled climb to Bobotov and Savin Kuk, while recreational hikers can enjoy easier trails and the charms of pearly glacial lakes.
