Gesa and Matthias from Germany did the self-guided trek in south&north of Montenegro, September 2017. Here is their feedback:
our Montenegrin adventure was great fun. We enjoyed the hiking very much. All the sections had a proper distance and were very scenic. So we did never get bored. Some ascents were quite demanding, but it was always worth the effort. And we enjoyed the hard parts just as much as the easy ones. We liked best the great variety of landscapes along the track: Leading us from the Bay of Kotor up to Jezerski Vrh an then down to Lake Skadar within only 6 days was really amazing. And you did also pick very cozy accomodations. Each of them was a surprise to us. Because they were all special in their very own way. And all of our hosts did a great job as well. To sum up, we have to say that we liked EVERYTHING!
Nevertheless, we would like to point out some things that were our top favourites:
Best hiking section: Kotor-Njegusi
Best accomodation: Mr. Tatar at Ceklin (see attachment)
Best food: Restaurant at Karuc
Best transfer: our boat trip on Lake Skadar (our captain did a very good job)
And it was also good to go to Durmitor after doing Track the Roots. That way we did experience a totally different part of Montenegro. And the rafting at Tara was a highlight of our trip. There happened to be a kayak festival at Camp Grab at that time. That was very entertaining.
I believe you prefer an accurate feedback, so appart from all the positive things I would like to tell you some minor drawbacks that we did not like so much: Our accomodation at Njegusi was comfortable and beautifully located. We liked them very much, but our mattrasses were a disaster. You could feel every single spring.
The second thing I have to mention is our room at Camp Grab: We did not stay in one of the wooden cabins, but in a double room. Unfortunately there was no heating. We were told that electricity was too weak for heating. And it did get freezing cold at night. Our room was at a shady spot so it did not heat up during the daytime as well. Our window did not close properly, so it was almost like camping. Unfortunately we were not prepared for camping. So our last two nights were a bit extreme.
But nevertheless our trip was very, very good. And we are very happy that we entrusted you with the arrangements. You did a great job. Thank you!
