Take a highland adventure in the north of Montenegro.

Spillover from Dubrovnik (a prominent Game of Thrones filming location in Croatia) has finally put Montenegro's fairytale Adriatic coast on the radar, yet the rugged interior of this small Balkan nation remains blessedly free from the crowds. Instead, you'll find lonely limestone peaks, glistening glacial lakes, and tiny adventure tourism hubs that are only now, in 2017, waking up to the potential of their surroundings. In a matter of a few days you can raft down the Tara River through Europe's deepest canyon, hike to the cliff-clinging Ostrog Monastery or mountain bike through the rolling pastures and thick beech forests near Mojkovac, the base for trips into two of the nation's most scenic national parks.
