Overview
This guidebook describes a range of 17 day-walks and multi-day treks throughout the mountains of Montenegro. Routes range from short (2km) walks through to multi-day treks throughout this fascinating region. Some routes are circular and some linear, with variants and extensions described so that you can plan a day walk or longer trip.

The guide also includes generous background information, covering mountain huts and shelters, travel to and within the country, history and language, as well as what to expect in the various mountains and National Parks the routes explore.

The Dinaric Alps are some of the wildest, most spectacular, and least visited in Europe. But they are easily accessible, and many areas have well-marked trails. They present an opportunity to travel through outstandingly beautiful and remarkably unspoilt natural scenery, which sees few visitors.
