Fly to Dubrovnik; transfer (approx. 2 hours) to Budva.
Transfer to Vrmac hill which sits between Kotor and Budva to start our walk. Our efforts will be rewarded with fabulous views over the Boka Kotorska bay. In the afternoon we will have a guided tour of the UNESCO world heritage site of Kotor town, with its beautiful cobblestone streets and churches. Return to Budva for the evening.
This morning we will transfer to the national park of Lovcen, a mountainous area just above coastal Montenegro. Here we will walk up Jezerski Vrh (1657m), which is also the resting place of the famous Montenegrin ruler, Petar II Petrovic Njegos. There will be an opportunity to visit his mausoleum, one of the most beautiful monuments of Montenegro situated at the very top of the mountain. From here we will then descend to his birth place, the village of Njegusi where we can stop for lunch and try some local products. In the afternoon we will return to Budva to relax and explore the town further.
Today we will leave Budva behind and head towards Dubrovnik. On our way we will stop at the town of Herceg Novi and enjoy a walk on the Orjen mountains. Our walk will give us spectacular views of the surrounding peaks and area. We arrive into Dubrovnik in the early evening, in time to enjoy a meal and a stroll around the traffic-free streets of the old town.
Today we have a full day to wander the fascinating streets of Dubrovnik, soak up its atmosphere, visit museums, spend time on the beach or walk the city walls. There is so much to see and the choice is yours. Dubrovnik exudes old-world charm with its location right on the Adriatic, the fine religious buildings surrounded by heavily fortified walls and the jumble of red-tiled roofs. The shelling of Dubrovnik by Serb troops in 1991 and 1992 outraged the world. Fortunately over the last 10 years great care has been taken to re-build the damaged parts of Dubrovnik and the city has now returned to its former glory. The cobblestone streets of the old town, or Stari Grad, features fountains, churches, palaces and museums - all built from the same light coloured stone. There are no motor vehicles in the city but at night the streets come alive as locals and visitors take an early evening stroll along the Stradun. This is the main street and is covered in smooth shiny marble. While in Dubrovnik it is worth buying a Dubrovnik Card which will cover many of your bus journeys and get you entry into many of the museums. Ask your tour leader about this when you arrive.
The area surrounding Dubrovnik is fantastic for walking, so today we are going to head out Snjeznica (snowy mountain) and walk to its summit (1234m). Our walk will start in the village of Mihanici and using an old mountain path we will make our way to the top where we will be rewarded with spectacular views across to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. We will then transfer back to Dubrovnik for the evening.
No trip would be complete without some island hopping, so today we visit the island of Lopud to enjoy the serenity of its quiet coves and remote churches. Lopud is one of the islands of the Dubrovnik archipelago, called the Elaphiti islands. Today will be a relaxing walk to explore the islands quiet bays, green landscapes and old churches. There will be the chance to enjoy a swim before returning to Dubrovnik for a final evening.
