Northern Montenegro region
It’s very difficult not to be delighted with beautiful wild nature that is the main characteristic of this region.
Zabljak (1456 m), the central town of this area, is connected with other parts and regions of Montenegro via three main roads. Restaurants with national cuisine, hotels, market place, supermarkets, bars and pubs, internet cafe are all available in this small tourist centre.
It is not accidental for Zabljak to present high potential for development of tourism. The advantage of two tourist seasons (Winter and Summer)and potential health tourism, ensure Zabljak and the region to be interesting tourist destination throughout all year.
National park Durmitor that spreads over this area ensures the protection of this amazing nature, its beautiful woods, lakes and rivers. The canyon of TARA river is the deepest in Europe and after Colorado canyon second deepest in the world (up to 1300 m deep, and up to 80 km long ). This is one of the most well known rafting destinations.
The amount and characteristics of these natural potentials, ensured for Durmitor region and TARA river protection of UNESCO, since 1980.
Therefore, this region is not only tourist oriented but also oriented towards the production and preservation of all ecological. Montenegro, declared as ecological via Declaration of the Ecological State Montenegro, finds its centre as such, in this region.
If you like hiking or cycling, Summer is a perfect time of year. There are many lakes, springs and caves to see and many peaks to climb at. At the winter time, though the chalet is at the walking distance from the best ski tracks and lifts in the area, skiing, boarding and having fun on snow is something that you will enjoy the most.
Ski equipment and ski instructors can be very easily found.
SKI INSTRUCTOR Rade at: email@example.com , will make this sport more enjoyable, but also find suitable ski equipment for you - if you want to organize your things on time.
WE ALSO ORGANIZE POPULAR TOURIST TOURS - THE DURMITOR RING, TOURS THROUGH MONTENEGRO, TRANSPORT TO TARA RIVER FOR RAFTING. IF INTERESTED CONTACT THE OWNER ABOUT ANY OF THESE.
Bobotov Kuk (at 2523 metres above the sea) is the highest point of Durmitor mountain. Thanks to marked ways and local guides, this and 23 other peaks above 2000 metres are reachable for mountaineers and adventurers.
But if you are a bit lazy you can achieve Savin Kuk (2132 metres) using cable chair lift, where beside the amazing view, you can drink water from a spring Savina voda, located very close to the highest point of this peak.
18 natural lakes, caves (the Ice Cave for example, with amazing ice sculptures), and of coarse canyons of rivers Tara and Sushica are really worth visiting.
In visiting this place you will for sure feel the real peace, tradition connected with modern life, an astounding nature, nice highlanders, and you will let the unpleasant thoughts be bygone

"Great location and nice hosts, definitely would go there again"
We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. I was afraid that the hosts wouldnt rent out for one night only, but it was not a problem at all, no minimum stay required (at least at this time of the year, dont know if it will be the same during high season). I sent Tanja a request, and the reply came prompt. Booking was not complicated at all, and reliable; though you cannot book via internet booking but have to contact the host directly. We even could extend our stay for one day. The welcoming was very warm, and we were provided with milk, eggs, and cream - a perfect breakfast for the next day. The place is in a great location, you literally live on a farm, surrounded by the fantastic view of mountainous Montenegro. We had the one bedroom apartment, which served us well. Basic, but all you need is available at the place. There is a fireplace in the apartment, which we used during the evenings - which was just lovely, of course. The family was very nice and welcoming, and also gave advice on activities in the area, and we could approach them anytime. I definitely recommend this place, and also would go there again, actually we pity that we didn't stay longer. The only thing I didn't like was the mattress of the bed, or better: sofa bed, but I have to admit I am picky in this regard.

"A truly memorable stay"
We had a lovely stay at Virak holiday chalet. Tanya, the owner, and her mother went out of their way to make it as comfortable as possible for us. The chalet is located close to Zabljak town, many beautiful walks and has a lovely view from the terrace. The fireplace with plenty of wood available was appreciated, as it was quite cold. The chalet is comfortable and cosy. There is a very small kitchen, but it has everything one needs for basic cooking.
What made our stay special was the personal attention given by Tanya and her mother, bringing us fresh farm milk, eggs and specialities from the region. The kids even got invited to milk the cows one evening!
Thanks again, we all remember Zabljak with fondness!
