May 28, 2019 - Sarajevo to Durmitor National Park (Montenegro)

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Sarajevo – Savnik, Montenegro Today is the day of the long drive! We left Sarajevo at 8:30 am and after leaving the city, we quickly were in the mountains – the Black Mountains. The views became more captivating the higher we climbed. The mountains are covered with trees and everything is very lush and intensely green. Because it was a cloudy morning and raining off and on, the clouds were hanging low over the mountains and formed an almost mystical atmosphere. We took pee and tea breaks – one was half an hour and gave...

May 28, 2018 - Zabljak

The drive to Zabljak was one of our most enjoyable yet. Near perfect weather, very little traffic, a good road and picture book scenery. The 200 kms passed all too quickly. The only downside was we were driving and not riding, this was a perfect trip for a bike ride. The border crossing into Montenegro was a little slower than others and the attendants seemed a tad grumpy which made us wonder if some tensions remain from the past. We drove through, around and over spectacular mountains, followed a beautiful turquoise river and snaked...

Sep 3, 2011 - Zabljak

In the hope of crossing the boarder into Bosnia we ventured north to Zabljak. Several hours on a bus later we arrived to discover this was not possible. Fortunately Zabljak is a very nice town situated on the edge on the Durmitor National Park. We took the opportunity and stopped for a couple of days to explore the said national park. On a particularly sunny day we ventured around the glacial Black Lake, well worth the visit.

Jun 13, 2006 - Montenegro - Durmitor National Park

Durmitor National Park (near Zabljak) contains some amazing mountain scenery - next trip to Montenegro will definitely be hiking (or maybe skiing). There is also a massive canyon on the Tara River. Apparently the canyon is the deepest in Europe, but it is not as spectacular as, for example, the Gorge du Verdon in France. Or maybe it is just less accessible? There is supposed to be good rafting on the Tara River but there was no sign of the operators in June. We did see trips advertised in Belgrade. Maybe we'll do that when we go back to go...

Nov 11, 2004 - Zabljak, Montenegro

Hop skip and jump and were across the border and over the hills in the Durmitor National Park in Montenegro. The town of Zlabljak is the winter base for skiing and in summer hiking, rafting and cycling. Dawg and I stayed two nights in a fully self-contained lodge encompassing three floors, a kitchen, two bedrooms, a living room, a laundry (woohoo, four loads of washing later and we're all clean again) and a fireplace! Nothing quite like an evening reading infront of the fire, chowing down on homemade Spag Bol, and listening to Dawgs I-pod...
