What people say

"Price: 5 euro Mountains meet lake. Beautiful nature area just half an hour from Podgorica. You can reach by bus or train, we chose train that was about 1.7 euro per person. It's located hal way to Bar so you can do both in one as it's the same train line. Virpazar is the best place to get off. After a short walk you'll find the city with all information and countless things to do including kayaking or boat tours. If you're just here for the nature go on a hike! Google maps knows a few routes otherwise you can check the map in town. Can't recommend it enough! "
"Skadar Lake adds another dimension to Montenegro and is a nice little day trip from the capital of Podgorica. "

Late 2023 I decided to go backpacking with a friend. 26 days, 6 countries all under 380€. 📍Croatia 🇭🇷 📍Bosnia and Herzegovina 🇧🇦 📍Montenegro 🇲🇪 📍Albania 🇦🇱 📍North Macedonia 🇲🇰 📍Serbia 🇷🇸 Ever since finishing university 3 years ago, I have been full time travelling and volunteering for conservation projects. I absolutely love my lifestyle however can't lie tight budget is one of the downsides. Instead of giving up my travel dreams I just decided to become resourceful and find the perfect itineraries that still fit my tight budget and let me explore the world. Before every trip, I spend weeks planning and researching and it's one of my favourite parts of the adventure. However, I know it can be overwhelming and tedious at times so I decided to share my research and my itinerary with you. All places mentioned here are places where I have been/stayed/eaten myself and can give you an honest review. In this guide, you'll find an itinerary through the Balkans meant to take you through 6 countries throughout 26 days following my footsteps. I'll share with you my recommendations of where to stay and what to do as well as a detailed outline of the full cost (accommodation and transport). You'll also find links to the accommodations I stayed in and all the bus/train companies I used. You'll also find a spreadsheet so you can adjust the itinerary to your own needs. What you'll get in this guide ✔️Itinerary through Balkans for 26 days ✔️Budget for the whole trip for accommodation and transport (updated November 23) ✔️Recommendations of budget accommodation in each location ✔️Recommendations of activities in each location ✔️Researched public transport connections between each location ✔️Ideas of day trips from the location (with budget expectations) ✔️Tips on how to get discounts on and flixbus (including a discount code) What you won't find in this guide ✖️Detailed day-to-day plan ✖️Budget for food during the trip as they will vary vastly depending on your personal preferences ✖️Food and restaurant recommendations *I did the trip with a friend so the itinerary is mostly applicable for 2 people because accommodations recommendations are double/twin rooms. But if you're traveling with different number of people of course you can still use the guide you just need to find a different accomodation

While its neighbor Croatia gets a lot of attention among world travelers, Montenegro is a personal favorite of the places I've traveled to over the years! My husband and I were looking at places to go for our anniversary one day, hoping for a mix of what we both love when we travel. He's an outdoor adventure fanatic, looking for any and every opportunity to commune with the clouds. I, however, prefer to sit at a cafe table on a cobblestone street, drinking a cup of coffee and reading a book, while I take in the unique buildings and shop for that souvenir I'll take home to add to the collection. In my researching, I found unbeatable flights to a country I hadn't ever heard of, but had it all: Montenegro. Whether you prefer mountains, quaint walled cities, the sea, or a combination of all of these things, Montenegro won't disappoint. While only about the size of the state of Connecticut, Montenegro packs a punch with how much there is to see in the country. Montenegro is right across from Italy on the Adriatic Sea, sharing borders with Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania. With a 7 day trip, you can see the majority of the country, experiencing the variety and beauty of Montenegro and its people. In this guide, you'll find everything you need to plan your trip to Montenegro! **Included: a list of basic information for travel to Montenegro, recommendations for how to get around, places to stay, what to do, as well as a sample 7 day itinerary
