Montenegro’s Mountains – In the cooler months of May and September you explore two different mountainous regions. Ride in the high mountains of the north with their wild, open plateaux and rolling hills, to the coastal mountain areas of Old Royal Montenegro in the south, with their ocean vistas, deserted hamlets and the dark forests which are still home to wolves and bears.

Legends of the Wolf  – In the warmer months during June, July and August you ride near to the Durmitor National Park, thereby taking advantage of the cooler temperatures. Explore this wild region of hidden lakes, striking ancient stone formations and meandering rivers.

Move on each night so you experience as much of the countryside as possible.

Ride for around five to six hours each day, covering a distance of about 25km a day. You must be riding fit and confident and in control at a walk, trot and canter out in the open. The pace is dictated by the terrain and you may be required to dismount and lead your horse on foot at times.

The horses are mostly Montenegrin Mountain Horses and are relatively small standing between 14.2hh to 15.2hh. They are ridden on a light contact and are good-natured, sure-footed and willing to please.

The riding style is English and the horses are ridden in trail saddles with snaffle bridles.

Hard hats are mandatory on these rides and you should take your own correctly fitted helmet. There are some standard sized body protectors to borrow should you wish.

You stay in a range of different accommodations including Bed and Breakfasts, bungalows, guest houses and small, round wooden houses. There are bathroom facilities on each night of the trail but these may be shared between more than one room.

You have the opportunity to taste true Montenegrin cuisine, with ingredients often sourced within a stone's-throw of where you are spending the night. The local residents, who you will meet throughout your stay, are incredibly proud of their food and the produce they grow.

Most dietary requests can be catered to with prior notice.

Sarah says

This country offers some outstandingly beautiful views and this ride offers the opportunity to witness them first hand.

My Top Tip

A friendly welcoming country that few people think to visit. You should also consider extending your stay in the walled town of Kotor beside the Adriatic Sea.
