Small but captivating
Less than two-thirds the size of Wales, Montenegro nevertheless squeezes a lot of attractions into a small area. With dramatic mountain and coastal landscapes, it’s fast becoming a magnet for adrenaline-fuelled holidays. Montenegro’s wild and rugged mountain terrain, where wolfs still roam, is calling to all adventurous travellers. The coast offers gorgeous beaches and quaint, red-roofed harbour towns. The deep forests of Biogradska Gora are a nature-lover’s dream, while the epic mountains of Durmitor and Prokletije are just waiting to be hiked, climbed or biked.
History buffs rejoice
Montenegro is full of quirks. The super-friendly natives will happily tell you more about the country’s fascinating history (as will museums in capital Podgorica). With Roman ruins, Ottoman memories, gorgeous Orthodox monasteries and gleaming Catholic churches, Montenegro has something for everyone. This country has long been on the border of the East and West, resulting in a fascinating take on European history as seen through the eyes of Montenegro. Don’t miss the ruined Byzantine fortress-city Stari Bar or the old Venetian city in Budva.
Fun and friendly
If you’re hungry for a classic sun and sea holiday somewhere new and uncluttered or you’re looking for an authentic taste of lesser-known Europe, search for cheap flights to Montenegro. Explore unchanged Alpine mountain villages before heading down to wander the sun-kissed streets of Mediterranean coastal towns. Dine on traditional home-cooked foods and listen to live Balkan music in charming, old town squares.
When to go
The most popular time to visit Montenegro is during the summer when the country’s Mediterranean coastal climate is the most enjoyable. Prices will be highest from June to September, so make sure you book your flights around two months in advance. While July and August are too hot for coastal hiking, they are perfect for exploring the mountains’ sub-alpine climate.
Walking around outside is enjoyable up until November, Montenegro’s wettest month of the year. The winter months tend to bring a lot of snow to the mountains. Flights can also be very cheap during December, January and February. If the idea of snow-walking around the lakes of Biogradska Gora National Park sounds fun, then check last-minute deals to Montenegro with Netflights.
Spring is beautiful in Montenegro and when many flowers are in full bloom. Whitewater rafting kicks off in May, once the snow melt has subsided enough to be safe. Orthodox Easter is a popular time to visit; open-air processions can be an exciting event for travellers to witness.
