The dramatic, fjord-like Kotor bay is flecked with islands, fishing boats and rare sea birds. It is surrounded by steep mountainsides and is rightly a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We will stay right on the coast in a three-star hotel at Denovici, on the edge of the beautiful Kotor Inlet. The hotel is surrounded by orange groves and there are sun loungers available at the front of the hotel by the sea. Wandering along the seafront with stunning views of the bay, stopping off at the cafés and restaurants, is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
We will be using direct flights from London to Tivat in Montenegro. This reduces the transfer time to the hotel by avoiding the crossing from Croatia to Montenegro, which can be busy in the summer months.
Each evening we will meet together for an interesting Bible talk in this beautiful setting.
From crashing mountain streams to the refreshing lapping of the lagoons and pools that curl around the coast, Montenegro is a land of contrasts and beauty.
Our optional package of four excursions takes us to Dubrovnik and also to Lipa Caves. It also includes two boat cruises, one to the Blue Cave and the other on Kotor Bay.
New for this year, we will be visiting the Lipa Caves, which were the no. 1 visitor attraction in Montenegro in 2018. A ride on a miniature train takes us to the entrance of the caves, with interesting views along the way. We are then given a guided tour of the caves themselves, allowing us to marvel at the amazing stalactites and stalagmites, as well as the impressive cave halls. There are records of explorers visiting the caves as early as the 19th century.
A boat cruise through a narrow inlet leads to this magnificent bay, with intriguing islands and ancient monasteries. The town of Kotor itself, with its dramatic waterfall, is famed for its Venetian city walls and medieval old town.
Another half-day cruise takes us to the Blue Cave, where the water has a striking azure tint.
With ancient city walls that sweep down to the harbour, quaint cafés and yachts nosing the water at the quay, Dubrovnik is often called “the Pearl of the Adriatic”. We will cross from Montenegro into Croatia to spend the day in this beautiful town.
On our free days you might choose to relax by the sea or continue to explore the local area. The nearby fortified city of Herceg Novi has been ruled by many different empires (including the Turks, Venetians, Russians, French and British), all keen to make the most of its strategic position on the Bay of Kotor. You might choose to visit the interesting Kanli Kula fortress, hire kayaks at the beach, or take the attractive promenade walk.
