Relax in a beautifully restored former palace with outstanding views
Explore the famous Plava Špilja (Blue Grotto)
Swim towards the Albanian border in the stunning Lake Skadar
Montenegro is one of the few locations in the world where you can swim in four different types of open water in the space of less than a week. On this warm-water swimming holiday, you’ll have the chance to swim in fjords, lakes, rivers and the sea, as you explore the spectacular scenery and rich history that Montenegro has to offer.
Explore hidden coves, tranquil lakes, and beautiful coastline as we take in some of Montenegro's finest landscapes from a truly unique perspective. With imposing mountains rising out of the area's fjords, this is a unique opportunity to discover the breathtaking natural beauty of such a scenic and historic corner of the European continent. From a swim in the famous 'blue cave' of Plava Špilja to swims across the Bay of Kotor and island hopping between monasteries in Lake Skadar, this trip is filled with amazing swimming experiences which will stay with you long after your last stroke in the water.
At the end of each day, you will have the chance to relax and unwind in a refurbished former palace in the historical town of Perast. The beautiful Perast Palace offers stunning accommodation, with a wide range of room options, an open-air terrace, and picture-perfect views of the breathtaking Bay of Kotor.

SwimTrek holidays are everything I wished for, but didn't know even existed until 5 years ago - and I have been a devotee ever since. Their locations and guides are second to none and I plan to swim with them well into old age! Thank you SwimTrek!Susan B, UK - 2019

This trip way exceeded my expectations - everything about it was superb. The accommodation and food (both on and off the boat) were fabulous and ensured we were always ready for our next adventure. The swims were amazing; all different, breathtaking scenery, safety a priority, closely followed by support and reassurance from our fantastic guides. The guides made it for me though - professional, knowledgable, supportive and fun. I felt completely safe and therefore relaxed the whole time. A great trip and I can’t wait for the next one. Already planning......... thank you.Helen E, UK - 2019
Have you ever been on holiday and felt desperate to swim across a lake, bay or along a coast and no one will do it with you? Join a SwimTrek and everyone is as eager as you to swim all day and the guides make it a safe and rewarding experience!Oonagh E, Netherlands - 2019

SwimTrek opened my eyes and all my other senses to the wonders of open water swimming.

If you love to swim and love to travel, SwimTrek is the vacation for you. Go by yourself, or take 14 of your best swimming friends, like I did. Either way, you can't beat the friendliness and quality of service, the local knowledge of the water environment, the swim expertise of the guides, and above-all, the safety standards and guidelines that are adhered to. SwimTrek, you have 15 new fans for life!Kelly S. USA- 2018
