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 three excursions takes us to explore the highlights of the area: Dubrovnik, Kotor and the Blue Cave.
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 cruise takes us to the Blue Cave, where the water has a striking azure tint, with the opportunity to swim if you would like to do so. We also visit Herceg Novi, which has been ruled by many different empires, 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.
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.
