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 the crossing of the Gulf 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.

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
