The Durmitor ring is a 85km long circular road around Durmitor mountain. The route takes you through mountain villages, where you can stop off, rest off and try and buy domestic products from friendly locals.
This tour is a perfect option between hikes or for those preferring an easy one-day nature escape. The Durmitor ring is the easiest way to see the variety of the Durmitor National Park – from mountain scenery, deep canyons, peaks, pastures, rivers, streams, forests and wildlife.
The tour starts in Zabljak (1,450m), the Montenegrin capital of mountain tourism. Onward to Momcilov Grad, our first stop, a former ski slope and great viewpoint over Zabljak and Durmitor. We move on to Veliki Stuoc, the first passage and thw highest point on our journey, overlooking the Tara Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe. From there we take a stop in Mala Crna Gora (or little Montenegro), a remote village located on the edge of the Susica Canyon. The village is otherwise inaccessible during the winter due to heavy snow.
A special phenomenon of this tour is the Susica river, which flows mostly underground! There is Susica lake at the base of the canyon filled with water during winter and dries up to form a picturesque valley in summer. A journey through a beautiful pine forest leads us to Nedajno and Trsa where we take a break to enjoy some rural Montenegrin cuisine in local restaurants that passangers choose.
The peaks of Prutas and Sedlo can be observed for their unique vertical rock surface and deep valleys, while the peak Savin Kuk can be accessed via a panoramic chair-lift to the top.
Our journey ends back at the starting point in Zabljak.
