The magnificent canyons of the Piva, Tara, Komarnica and Vrbnica rivers – the peaks of Bioc, Maglic, and Golija mountains – the fascinating Trnovačko and Pivsko mountain lakes – all make the Piva region among the favourite rural escapes in Montenegro with well-preserved villages adding some history and folklore to the mix.

We begin the hiking tour in the village of Stabna, 15km away from Pluzine. A solid 4.5km trail leads us through unspoiled nature, arriving first at the Small Stabanjska Lake (1,194m) and on to the emerald green Great Stabanjska Lake (1,325m), with photo opportunities along the way. The Stabanjska lakes are sheltered by the mountain peaks of Bioc, whose slopes are busy with dense green deciduous and pine forests.
From the Great Stabanjska Lake, we continue our onward hike to the picturesque Katun of Krucica for a refreshment break. In close vicinity is the Zemunica water source, giving us ice-cold water fresh from the mountain, overlooked by the ’stećci’ medieval cemetery.
The hiking tour ends with a photo break at the waterfall of the Vrbnica river, the largest tributary of the Piva river.
