Most people associate this country with a seaside vacation. All-inclusive tours to Montenegro can be bought at almost any agency that deals with the selection of tours. But a boring holiday by the hotel's pool with occasional forays to the beach is not for us. We prefer new discoveries and interesting travels. Adventure Club is not a tour operator in the usual sense of the word, but a hobby club that unites fans of active tourism.
Types of tours
Members of our Adventure Club are people with different preferences and views on outdoor activities. Someone cannot imagine themselves without hiking in the mountains, someone prefers to explore the sea coast, someone likes to go on excursions in big cities more. Therefore, in our piggy bank of tours to Montenegro, different formats are available:
In terms of complexity, our tours range from the simplest, designed for a wide range of tourists, to extreme, where only participants with hiking experience and in good physical shape are allowed. On some trips, you can take children from 10 years old, provided that there are no restrictions on health conditions.
Each tour presented in the catalog has a coordinator - you can ask him any questions regarding the trip. The coordinator's contacts are on the hike page.

During the trip to the Grlo Sokolovo gorge, my husband and I stopped at a horse-drawn carriage to ask if we were going along that road. Word for word, but we came to our senses only two hours later, when the owner treated her husband with brandy in full and offered to stay with an overnight stay: D. T. I was driving, they gave me delicious berry tea and a local dessert. The owner flatly refused to take the money.
