Our local guides
Kind, enthusiastic, professional. This is how we describe our guides: specialists for mountains, flora and fauna of the country, city tours, history… each will give you what you need to fully understand the essence of Montenegro.
Here are our 5 good reasons to go hiking with a guide. In general, we always advise you to discover the country with a local as it is the best way to be immersed in a new culture during a couple of days of holiday.
Our mountain guide Radonja comes from Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro. The mountains are his second home. If you want to know everything about mushrooms, go on an expedition with Radonja! He is our best expert on the subject. He likes camping under the stars and his favorite place is Kucke mountains, the montain range between Podgorica and Kolasin.
Our mountain guide Djurdjica comes from the city of Zabljak, located on the verge of Durmitor National Park. Being daughter of a ranger, from early childhood she learned everything about mountains and trails of Durmitor. Her great knowledge will make you enjoy the short easy walks as well as heavy climbs reaching as high as 2500m altitude.
Ahmet is our mountain guide from Plav and he is an expert in Prokletije region, mountain range located on the border of Kosovo and Albania. Some of our travelers nicknamed him as “The Gentle Giant” because of the great care he shows, especially throughout difficult hikes to the heart of the “Accursed mountains” (literal translation of Prokletije).
