Welcome to Northern Montenegro
The region’s main drawcards are its three national parks. Durmitor is a dizzying combination of soaring peaks and the plunging depths of the Tara River Canyon, making for spectacular skiing in winter and rip-roaring rafting in summer. The remote treks and trails of Prokletije’s Accursed Mountains are more heaven than hell for serious alpinists, while the less hard-core can catch their breath in Biogradska Gora’s gentle lakes and timeless forests.
There’s not much in the way of infrastructure outside of Kolašin and Žabljak, but don’t let that stop you. Hire a car, steady your nerves, and let the twisty, turny, white-knuckle roads take you where they will.
