This tiny, fascinating, and diverse country is home to an array of dramatic landscapes, which combine jagged mountains, deep canyon gorges, and wide, sandy beaches.
One of Via Dinarica’s most popular spots is located in Montenegro’s northern region. The UNESCO-designated Durmitor National Park is a “world heritage of mankind” within the Biosphere Resource Network. The park covers about 39,000 hectares and includes the entire Durmitor Massif, with an average altitude of 1,500 metres and includes 48 mountain peaks over 2,000 metres high. The highest peak is Bobotov Kuk, which reaches 2,523 metres. There are also 13 glacial cirques, 18 glacial lakes, three canyons: the Susica, Komarnica, and the Tara, which is the second longest canyon in the world.
Famously rugged and independent, Montenegro opens up for travelers. Whether you’re looking for a remote peak, solitude among shepherds, nightlife in the bustling capital of Podgorica, resort amenities in the town of Žabljak, or a swim in the magical Kotor Bay, the Via Dinarica provides a perfect vehicle.
