Montenegro is one of the few locations in the world where you can swim in four different types of open water in less than a week.

With imposing mountains that soar upwards from the fjords, this is a unique opportunity to stretch out your strokes and drink in a backdrop of natural beauty unique to this historic corner of Europe. From a swim in the famous 'blue cave' of Plava Špilja, to snaking meanders across the Bay of Kotor, as well as island hopping between monasteries in Lake Skadar, this trip is filled with amazing swimming experiences. The memories 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 Mrshe Palace offers stunning accommodation, with a wide range of room options, open-air terrace, and picture-perfect views over the breathtaking Bay of Kotor.
