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 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. 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.
