Destination Summary

This Montenegro photo adventure will begin when we meet up in the city of Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast.

From Dubrovnik it’s only a very short drive to the Montenegrin border where shortly after, the beautiful Bay of Kotor cuts like a deep fjord into the steep sided mountains.

The Montenegrin coast isn’t long but its  dotted with old  villages,  castle ruins, churches and tiny islands  all along a stunningly beautiful coastline.

After a few days photographing the highlights of the Adriatic coastal villages including Perast, Budva and Pertovac , we’ll drive up into the interior of the country.

Lake Skadar is the biggest lake in southern Europe and straddles the border over  into Albania to the south. The Montenegrin part is surround by National park and you’ll be able create some images at some major viewpoints and we’ll maybe even negotiate a boat trip onto the lake itself.

Now on our Montenegro photo adventure its time to  swap our flip flops for hiking boots as the weather turns colder and the weather less predicable. From Skadar we travel up to Biogradska Gora National Park with its lake and unique Rainforest setting and onto Durmitor National Park (a UNESCO world heritage site). We’ll explore the Tara River Canyon, the largest and deepest in Europe, photograph its famous bridge and get down into the river canyon itself for some wide angle compositions.

The town of  Zabljak will be our base for a couple of nights, while we capture the glacial Black Lake, the surrounding forests and some of the amazing viewpoints over the Durmitor Massif.

After the mountain highs around Zabljak we’ll make our way back  to Dubrovnik where the trip will come to an end. Perhaps you can spend one last night enjoying the walled city of Dubrovnik before flying home.
