With the warm Mediterranean sun washing over you and seagulls soaring high above, you’re gently gliding through azure waters of the Adriatic, and thinking to yourself—life is beautiful. Indeed it is, especially when you’re touring the natural gems of Dubrovnik and Montenegro in those warm summer days. Indulge in this guided, 8-day odyssey by kayaking crystal-clear waters, hiking through dense pine forests and glacial lakes of Durmitor National Park, ziplining down Montenegro’s longest zipline, and rafting down rapids of Tara river. But this area offers far more than its visual grandeur: visit a myriad of Renaissance villas, paddle to secluded reefs, and relish the mouth-drooling, traditional dishes. Escape to the Mediterranean coast, where time slows down and worries melt away.

Escape to the Mediterranean for a total mind and body reset—on this 8-day guided tour, you will go hiking, kayaking, rafting, and ziplining!

Unveil the magic of Dubrovnik and Montenegro, where each paddle or a step reveals a world of unforgettable memories.

Go through a briefing and your guide will answer whichever questions you may have.

We just had the most amazing adventure holidays in Croatia and Montenegro. A lot of nature, sun and water sports. Our guides Amir and Mladen were great and their passion about adventure and what they do was contagious which helped to feel like they were part of the adventure as well, always looking insights from us and suggesting things to do around the area. They are professional guides which take their jobs seriously, in a safely manner, but also enjoy their time at the tours because that’s what they love doing. In the end, I’m glad that we found Discrover tours through TourRadar when I was looking for an adventure holidays. We were looking for some active holidays including some activities like Kayaking, Hiking, Cycling or Rafting and that’s when we found the Croatia and Montenegro tour. We were lucky to have them to help organising and leading our tour. I’d highly recommend them for adventure holidays.

Really enjoyed having Mladen as a guide. Please thank him again on our behalf for taking such good care of us.
