0 Reviews
The first comprehensive English-language guidebook to walking, hiking and trekking in the mountains of Montenegro, with routes ranging from single day hikes to multi day treks. The mountains of Montenegro are some of the wildest, most spectacular, and least visited in Europe. Nevertheless they are easily accessible, and many areas have well-marked trails. They present an opportunity to travel through outstandingly beautiful and remarkably unspoilt natural scenery, which as yet sees few visitors. The guide covers the most spectacular mountain areas in Montenegro, with a selection of circular and linear routes, with variants and extensions. It also includes generous background information, including mountain huts and shelters, travel to and within the country, history and language.
