The relatively new state of Crna Gora is better known under its Italian name, Montenegro, which means “Black Mountain”. This small but gorgeous nation boasts both man-made and natural wonders—its deep canyons, gushing rivers, glacial lakes and primeval forests are popular for adventure while its glistening ports and swanky super yacht marinas are sights behold. Once overlooked in favour of more popular Mediterranean spots, Montenegro is gaining a reputation as a terrific travel destination. With new cruise ship routes, high-end hotel openings—such as the highly anticipated Chedi—new high-end international restaurants—like Nobu—and whispers among trailblazing travellers, Montenegro is quickly emerging as an icon of the Adriatic.

We prefer to visit in late Spring (May to June) or early Fall (September to mid-October) when the summer crowds have gone and the weather is more pleasant. The less-visited mountains are ideal in the summer (June to September) for more outdoor pursuits, while ski season at Kolasin and Zabljak kicks off in winter (December to March).
