Best Time To Travel To Montenegro

We recommend traveling anytime between spring and summer,  April – August, as the autumn can get quite chilly with winds from the Adriatic, and winds whipping over the mountains. There is plenty to do in this small country whether it be skiing in the winter in the Dinarides or hiking through them in the summer. There are bike tours and options to go to the beach, regardless of the season there is something to see and do here.

  • High Season: June – August
  • Low Season: October – March
