Let's have a look at the standard itinerary for the Active Family Montenegro Holiday...
On arrival at either Tivat, Podgorica (both Montenegro airports) or Dubrovnik airport (in Croatia), you'll transfer over to an ethno village around Piva Lake.
No matter where you're flying into, you'll see some of Montenegro most beautiful scenery along the way.
Your accommodation is in authentic Montenegro bungalows where you can expect warm hospitality and delicious Montenegrin mountain food of breads, stews, cheeses and roast meats.
You'll also get to explore the local countryside and meet the locals!
Rafting in the Tara Canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe, is a must-do experience in Montenegro.
The start point is a short and scenic drive from Piva Lake and then it's off down the river. The scenery down the river is beautiful and there are lots of spots to take pictures. A Go Pro is a must-have item if you want to record the trip. About half way down, you stop for a rest and to swim under a waterfall... well the water is very cold, so it's usually more like a dip!
You can read more about rafting in Montenegro here.
After rafting, you head back to your accommodation at Piva Lake for a well-deserved rest.
On the third day you make your way up the hills surrounding Piva Lake on a relaxing hike. From here you'll get stunning views of the whole area.
After the hike it's time to head off on a cruise on the lake. You can just sit back and enjoy the views or try your hand at a bit of fishing and go for a swim in the lake.
This is a very exciting day! On day 4 your family will tackle Rikavac Canyon. Kitted up with wetsuits, harnesses and ropes, you'll navigate the canyon's waterfalls and pools at a team. Your kids will be thrilled when they jump and abseil down waterfalls. It's a great story to tell all their friends when they get home and an enormous confidence booster when they finish!
You can read more about canyoning in Rikavac Canyon here.
Rikavac Canyon is near Bar, on the south coast, so you'll take another drive through Montenegro's beautiful countryside and along the coast. After canyoning, you'll head over to your 3* hotel in Bar old town. This is a fascinating ruined old town that has amazing aqueducts. I highly recommend a visit!
Today you'll head over to Skadar Lake, a short trip from Bar and one of Europe's most important bird reserves.
You'll take a guided kayaking tour on the lake where you'll be able to see rare birds and swim in the lake.
After exploring the lake, you'll return to Bar for the night.
Day 6 is a free day where you can explore wherever you like. Some suggestions:
You'll be transferring over the Bay of Kotor today, where you'll spend the night in 4* accommodation.
You start the day with a drive up Kotor Bay's famed 'serpentine road'. 25 hairpin turns make this road a winding route, but the scenery is breathtaking. You'll get views over the whole bay from the top.
You'll head into Lovcen National Park and up to the Adventure Park at Ivanova Korita. The park has a set of ropes courses to suit everyone - from easy courses to a challenging course for the most athletic participants. There's also a zipline ride.
Ivanova Korita is a great place for kids. There are big grass fields (bring a ball!), playgrounds, picnic tables, barbecues and a fantastic, authentic restaurant.
After a full day, you'll head back down to the bay for the night.
You'll transfer back to the airport or your next destination if your adventures continues!

When I was 11, I spent 10 weeks with my best friend's family travelling around Europe, Canada and the United States. At the end of every day, we recorded what we did and what we saw that day. To this day, I still treasure this book and those memories.
These days you can get travel journals for kids that they just fill in - add in a box of coloured pencils and you've got the perfect end of day activity for your holiday. We have this journal and it's been invaluable for going over the day's activities and recording our feelings about our trips.
