Well, where to start! Ben, Emma and the team at Undiscovered Montenegro have created some wonderful tours and the Family multi activity certainly did not disappoint.

We have two teenage daughters and our week was spent canyoning in Rikavac Canyon, canoeing across Piva Lake, swimming in Black Lake, white water rafting down the Tara River, hiking in Durmitor National Park, zip-lining across Tara Canyon and climbing Uvita Greda by via ferrata.
All against the backdrop of the stunning scenery Montenegro has to offer.

Vuk, our guide for the week was excellent and shared his knowledge about Montenegrin history with passion and enthusiasm. The food was plentiful and Vuk's recommendations for local/traditional fare always went down very well!

We would thoroughly recommend this tour to any family seeking an active week. It has enough down time to recharge batteries and get ready for the next exciting adventure.

A weeks walking holiday in the Mountains of Montenegro at the beginning of June was a fantastic experience. The contest between the heat of Podgorica and the alpine climate of the mountains was just a starter. Our guide, Nenad was a great person to spend a week with, informative and passionate about the potential his country has and flexible with the itinerary when the weather curtailed some of our planned walks. It was a great holiday and an incentive to visit the country again.

We absolutely loved our Super Active week with Undiscovered Montenegro, with the lakes and mountains being our favourite part of our visit to Montenegro. The accommodation, activities, food and different locations were amazing. We were also incredibly fortunate to have been with such a great group of like minded people. A great way to explore the ‘undiscovered’ parts of Montenegro and seeing it on it’s untouched natural best, whilst also enjoying fabulous local food and exhilarating activities.

We would highly recommend this company and trip for any active family/couple.

Phew what a fabulous Family Multi- Activity holiday! Kayaking, wild swimming, hiking and even wine tasting, all in the most magical settings! We were lucky enough to meet some really lovely people and eat some really gorgeous home-cooked food. The holiday was expertly run by Ben and Emma (as well and the super-knowledgable Freddy and ever enthusiastic Coco) who made it all look effortless and fun although it must be very hard work keeping everyone happy. Their local knowledge of off the beaten track locations and their established relationships with local providers made the whole experience really special. Thoroughly recommend this holiday for families of all ages who are seeking a bit of adventure!

An exceptional week with Undiscovered Montenegro! The owner, Ben, was fantastic at communicating right from the start and even though we had a rocky start with Ryanair, Ben made us feel relaxed and very reassured. We have never been on a tour like this before and I was nervous that everyone in the family would like it but this is honestly such a good trip for all ages. We are a family of 6 with 4 daughters: 19,17,14,11. We could have had older or younger members and it would still have been brilliant. Our tour guide Ana felt like a friend and we all felt sad saying goodbye to her on our last day. She was so thoughtful and very informative. We really enjoyed getting to know about Montenegro through her. I won’t go into the activities in detail as you should experience them yourself but we did a boat trip on Lake Skadar, went canyoning, white water rafting on the Tara river, hiking around the Black Lake and zip lining. We also decided to do the via Ferrata in Durmitor which took me very much out of my comfort zone. Ana makes you think you can do anything! It was amazing and something I shall never forget. I must also mention the food!!!! We ate like kings for the week. I can’t thank Ben and Ana enough. Superb accommodation too. Can’t fault anything. We hope to return one day.

This holiday was perfect for us as an active, outdoorsy family. The activities were pitched perfectly to include our youngest (11 years) but were enough of a thrill for all of us at the same time (our 16 year old loved it).

We really enjoyed staying at the three locations with each having its own character and aspects we liked. The rafting was a highlight but in all honesty all of the activities from the kayaking to the lake swimming were just divine.

This was a fantastic trip. Vera, our guide, was superb! She struck the perfect balance of keeping us on schedule, being sociable and giving us space. Not easy actually but she made it look easy. The Montenegrin people made us all so welcome where ever we went. We dined at some excellent restaurants, hand picked by the tour company and sampled locally sourced / grown produce from fish to vegetables and home made red wine!

My family cannot recommend this holiday enough! Go and enjoy :)

The holiday with Undiscovered Montenegro was one of the best we've ever had! The country is extraordinary and the way Emma and Ben find the most incredible mountain hikes, untouched paths, secret waterfalls and caves left us all in awe. My children (aged 11 and 8) had never done anything like this and managed all the hikes, kayaking and caving thanks to the careful planning and gentle encouragement from Emma and Ben. They even got us all swimming in pristine, untouched waterfalls in early April. The mix of activities was perfect and the balance of guided tours and time on our own was just right.
Could not recommend Emma and Ben's tours more highly and we're already looking at the next adventure with them!

The ultimate adventure holiday in Montenegro was by far the best holiday we have been on! My active 14 and 16 year olds enjoyed every single day. We did Kayaking, Canyoning, hiking, water rafting and mountain biking in the most beautiful surroundings. From turquoise green rivers and warm tranquil lakes to stunning mountain views, we were never disappointed. The accommodations just kept getting better as the week went on too, every time we arrived at the next place there was always a wow factor! Camp grab was definitely our favourite though right on the river with its chocolate box wooden cabins. The food on the trip was great too, the amazing intimate farmhouse lunch and dinners in Virpazar were very authentic, generous and tasty. The food in Camp Grab was an excellent standard for a camp site. I would definitely recommend this holiday for any family who has an adventurous spirit!

We have just returned from the Multi activity holiday with Undiscovered Montenegro. It was a fabulous adventure and introduction to this amazing country as well as a holiday. An excellent balance of activities and time to rest or explore on your own. We kayaked and had a small boat cruise on the magnificent lake Skadar with it's beautiful scenery, plants and wildlife. We hiked mountain trails, travelled along precipitous single track roads and ate delicious, local food in tiny hamlets. Best of all was the wild swimming. Ben and Emma have bulit up extensive knowledge of the area and lead you to places no-one else seems to visit, with swimming in rivers/lakes every day which was superb. We stayed at the Dembelija rooms about 500m from Villa Miela. The rooms are simple and very comfortable with a beautiful terrace and stunning views. Thanks to Ben, Emma and Adele for a wonderful week. I strongly suspect we will be back!

Our stay at Villa Miela with hiking, wild swimming, kayaking, boat tour and optional wine tasting was absolutely fantastic. We travelled as a couple but shared the villa with a fantastic bunch of people. Our hosts, Ben and Emma, were lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the culture and history of the area and seemed to be known by everyone. Their ability to speak the language was reassuring as they were able to help make arrangements for us, and their commitment to a more sustainable way to see the country was really important to us. Some of our highlights were meals cooked by local families, stunning scenery, swimming in mountain pools, exploring caves, kayaking amongst the lily pads with regular sightings of kingfishers and so many more...We highly recommend this holiday!
