A tour we recommend to everyone !

On the mountain Bjelasica, at 1800 meters above sea level, along the border with the National Park Biogradska gora you will find the first Eko village in Montenegro – Eko katun „Vranjak“. In Northern Montenegro with alpine climate there are many Katuns. They are villages existed at the bottom of mountains famous for traditional food and beverages. If you want to feel how Montenegrins from the North used to live in past centuries this is a great tour for you. You can taste organic food from the farm and try some of the „forgotten“ national specialties. Here you can rent mountain horses and ride to the nearby peaks of the National Park, see the old-fashioned way of wool spinning, listen to the sounds of gusle- a national instrument with one wire, or just enjoy the nature while drinking some homemade juice.. It is also perfect for children beacause they can play football or do some other activities on meadow on a sunny day. You will find countless opportunities for „endless“ walks on the peaks and slopes of Bjelasica and the National Park…

From  Bar on about 2:30h we arrive in Vranjak. There are two options for out guests.

For those who like to lie on the grass and look at the sky after a portion of the best porridge (kačamak) in Montenegro (according to some of our information), pick tea plants, ride horses, walk in the meadows without getting tired, we recommend to take the cable car to Troglava peak (2072m) and descend to the eko-katun Vranjak, where they will wait for those who go on a circular tour over Zekova glava peak, Pešić lake, the source of the Biogradska river, to the katun Vranjak. And you can reach Eko katun from the place of disembarkation on foot going uphill for about half an hour.

For those more prepared we organize a walking tour, one of the most attractive on the mountain Bjelasica. Walking uphill in about two hours from our starting point-Katun Vranjak, we take a short macadam road, then a walking path to the top of Zekova glava peak. There is a beautiful view of the highest peak of the mountain – Black Head and Pešić Lake. We will take a long break on the lake and enjoy the beautiful forest and meadows, and then continue towards the pass between Zekova and Crna glava peaks. We have about half an hour walk uphill to the pass, and then we descend to the source of the Biogradska river (about half an hour from the pass), first along the path and then on the macadam road, and passing by the ‘stone river’we make a circle around Troglava peak and return to Eko katun Vranjak in about two hours.
