General info 

Durmitor National Park is one of the most stunning natural sites in Europe and a real playground for nature and hiking lovers. The soaring peaks give you an eagle’s view of the blue glacial lakes, while the canyons and forests seem to stretch out endlessly.

Šljeme (Helmet) is the third highest peak of Durmitor massif. This is not really a peak like others. It is a 2 km long, high plateau with an average height of over 2400 m. There are several peaks on the plateau of Šljeme, and the most famous are the Istočni Vrh (2445 m) and Vrh Šljemena (2455 m).

July, August, and September are the best months for hiking in Durmitor National Park.

  • The hike starts from the cable car below Savin Kuk.
    We reach the top by walking through the left side of the ski resort – known as the “clean side”. During our hike, we pass by the various snowdrifts, present in this area also during the summer period.

This hiking tour offers outstanding sights and views that will leave you breathless, including Sedlo, Canyon Nevidio, mountain Vojnik, Mali and Veliki Međed, Bandijerna, and Bobotov Kuk.
