Montenegro is a study in extreme parts coming together to make an exquisite whole. This small Balkan country—bordered by Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania in Southeast Europe—packs a big adventure punch. Its varied landscape includes beautiful and jagged mountain ranges that soar to nearly 8,300 feet and the Adriatic Sea on its southwestern border. The fjord-esque coastline, highlighted by the Bay or Kotor, is juxtaposed by the characteristic Mediterranean red-tiled roofs. From the deepest gorge in Europe, the Tara River Canyon, to its soaring peaks, Montenegro is heaven for any explorer.
