Dutch group of 6 members from NKBV mountain club asked for a snow-shoeing tour of Montenegro in March 2019. They shared this adventure’s memories:
Some members of the ‘zwerftochten’ hiking group of the Dutch mountain club NKBV, in March of this year visited a beautiful mountainous area in Montenegro, near Kolašin (Колашин), in the north east of the country and made a snowshoe tour there. The main range there is called Bjelasica (Бјеласица). This area is very suitable for snowshoe walking, because it is not as steep as some other mountainous areas in Montenegro, like for instance Durmitor (Дурмитор). Near Bjelasica is the Komovi (Комови) range, where the group ended the tour.
Making this tour was a nice combination of an outdoor activity in a quiet and beautiful area and of getting to know our neighbours in the Balkan. Something we have done more often, like during our visit to the Rugova (Kosovo).
This tour is new and was made possible by Vlatko Bulatovic of guide agency Zalaz. He arranged for us that local accomodations like the Krivi Do hut were open and could offer meals and sleeping facilities. He also took care of avalanche equipment and daily testing of the stuff. Vlatko is a great companion with thorough knowledge of the area; he also was very kind and helpful about us getting back home in corona-times.
