Montenegro’s north beckons with countless highland adventures. Its great outdoors – encompassing Durmitor, Biogradska Gora and Prokletije national parks – are a dream destination for everything from hiking and mountain biking to canyoning and rafting. But for those who prefer kicking back, this rugged region is also well worth exploring for its cultural and historical heritage, festive spirit, delicious natural produce and rural hospitality.
The heart of Montenegro’s northern mountains – the region of Bjelasica, Komovi and Prokletije – gets far fewer visitors than the rest of the country. An official cultural route (northernexposure.me), however, conveniently links its major towns, providing a rewarding insight into the rich heritage of places rarely featured on tourist brochures.
