Montenegro + Croatia

Want breathtaking natural beauty, historic charm, and vibrant cultural experiences on your next adventure? You'll find it all here on our 8-day, 7-night tour through beautiful Montenegro and Croatia!

Situated along the Adriatic Sea in southeastern Europe, these countries boast stunning coastlines, centuries-old cities, and rugged mountainous terrain. They are two of the most absolutely stunning (and overlooked!) destinations in the world, and we can’t wait to share them with you!

Our tour begins and ends in charming Dubrovnik, where we’ll explore this medieval city and enjoy a private boat tour off the coast. Then, we’ll venture inland to the Durmitor Mountain region of Montenegro, go zip-lining over the Tara River Canyon, and enjoy traditional meals and wine-tastings with locals. Finally we’ll head back to the coastal cities of Budva and Kotor to round out our week of ultimate relaxation and adventure. 

Hope you can join us - and an amazing group of like-minded women - as we embark on this incredible journey to *two* of the most jaw-dropping places in the world!

Durmitor mountain is one of the most impressive mountain ranges in Europe, frequently called the Alps of the Balkans, full of glacial lakes, river canyons, and diverse flora and fauna.

The pearl of the area and inevitable spot on this trip is a Black lake, situated in the vicinity of town Zabljak famous for being the center of the winter tourism. 

It’s gorgeous where we’re waking up, so enjoy a relaxing morning! This afternoon, we’ll check out of the hotel and then, we’re going zip-lining! 

In parallel with one of the most impressive road bridges in Europe, Tara river is the second deepest canyon in the world and the deepest European canyon that can be flown over with a zip line.

On this tour to Montenegro + Croatia, you can expect lots of time in the sun and around water. We built this tour with time to explore and time to relax. Montenegro is a small country with big views, and this tour is great for the gal looking to explore something a European country you might not otherwise spend a lot of time in.

Will you match me?
Of course! If you choose a space in a shared room but you're traveling solo, we will do our best to pair you with a roommate. Roommates are matched based on arrival time and perceived compatibility. Sharing a room is a great way to save costs, and make a new friend! However, we ask you to approach the situation with an open mind, some grace, and maybe a little humor.

While 99% our travelers are amazing, we can't guarantee that you'll hit it off with your roommate, or that your sleeping styles will be compatible.

Is sharing right for you?
If you are a light sleeper, get easily irritated or just know that you need your own space, sharing a room might not be for you. Likewise, if you know that you snore, sleep with a CPAP machine or have other health conditions, sharing a room might not be the best fit.

What if I don't get along with my roommate?
If you've tried but you absolutely can't get along with your roommate and need to separate, your trip leader will either swap things around, or, attempt to get you your own room. If the latter, additional charges will incur.

What if I book a double room, and you can't match me?
We book a certain amount of hotel rooms before any tour, and are bound by their rules. In the event that we cannot find a roommate for you before the tour, and your room converts to a single room, there may be additional charges.

Small group trips require at least 4 people to run. We will confirm as soon as possible when the trip has met its minimum; up to 60 days before departure. For this reason, we recommend waiting until after a trip has been confirmed to purchase airfare. Any tour can be converted to a private departure when a trip does not meet its minimum. Additional costs may incur. Alternatively, apply your credit to any small-group tour departing within 12 months. 

When you book a tour with us, our team will create a customer portal for you, where you can make payments towards this tour at your leisure. 

If you’d prefer, we can create a payment schedule for you, just let our accounting team know (accounting@damesly.com) Tours must be paid in full 60 days before departure. 

This tour to Montenegro + Croatia must be paid in full by April 16, 2025. See our cancellation policy here.
