Great Hiking Ideas in Montenegro with GPS waypoints

GPS or MAP & COMPASS? We use a Garmin GPS60csx when hiking, both within the UK and in Montenegro. It has a 2Gb memory card which holds topographic maps for the whole of the UK, but at this stage, no such map exists for Montenegro. Nevertheless, it is a superb unit having the extremely sensitive SIRF chip, and will provide very good positioning. Even so, when in deep canyons, no GPS can be very accurate and it is common to have accuracy restricted to 40m or more. In normal use however, even in dense tree cover, accuracy of 4m or better is very commonly achieved. There is of course no substitute for map and compass, but we would never explore the numerous mountain tracks without our GPS.  Good hiking maps of Montenegro are available. We can advise you.

HIKING There are excellent waymarked hikes around the Bay of Kotor and surrounding mountains. Whether you want to discover the near-deserted village of Upper Stoliv, explore ancient Austro-Hungarian fortresses, find the abandoned "ghost village" of Veliki Zalazi, ascend the old mule track "The Ladder of Cattaro", or even make a complete ascent to Mt Lovcen, we can provide the information you need. Our apartment is the perfect centre for your discoveries.

GEOCACHING A great hobby for anyone with a GPS and especially for encouraging youngsters to enjoy the great outdoors. Hidden treasure boxes containing notebook and pencil with a few small gifts to exchange are placed near some superb viewpoints in Montenegro, some of which can be reached by car, and others demanding a hike of a few kms or more. But wherever you find one, you are guaranteed a very special experience! Our apartment is the perfect choice for a base from which to explore the coast and mountain scenery around the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro.
