Explore the most beautiful regions of Montenegro on our Horse Trekking Tours. Enjoy ancient routes inaccessible even to mountain bikes, and cover distances not possible by foot. Tourists on
horseback are a rarity, and the horse-loving Montenegrins always have a wave and a friendly word, often followed by an offer of a cup of coffee, pomegranate juice or brandy (Rakija).
A progressive 8-Day riding tour with cultural highlights and insights
Stunningly beautiful, remarkably diverse, Montenegro astounds and delights at every turn. The frenzy of the beach culture abruptly gives way to an untamed interior where wolves and bears still roam the dark mountain forests which gave Montenegro (“Black Mountain”) its name.
Only 625,000 people live in this nascent adventure destination, which holds some of the most rugged terrain in Europe. High mountains with limestone peaks, canyons, glacial lakes, plateaus and vast forests are packed into an area approximately 2/3 the size of Wales. But the wild -- and at times harsh – beauty of the landscape is in direct contrast to the warm Balkan hospitability of its inhabitants.
During our 8-day adventure, we explore two mountainous regions: the high mountains of the north, marked by solitary and wild open high plateaus and rolling hills under impressive mastiffs; and the coastal mountain range of Old Royal Montenegro, with its ocean vistas from craggy mountainsides, deserted hamlets, and dark, mysterious forests.

Big of heart; sure of foot
The Bosnian mountain horses we take on our tours are the typical working horses used by the farmers and shepherds of the region. They are good-natured, have a great deal of stamina, and are surefooted on the at times rocky and steep terrain.
