Canyoning and other Adventures in Montenegro 

Further to my This and That post, relating to the wonderful scenery and adventures offered by Croatia and Greece, I came across an interesting article in Visit-Montenegro.com promoting the natural treasures of Montenegro and in particular canyon Nevidio at the Komarnica river. The canyon's name translates to 'not even God has seen it', so called because it has only recently been conquered. Nevidio canyon is about 15 kilometers away from the small Montenegro town of Savnik and the first people to go through it were members of Niksic's mountaineering club; a journey which took them two days.
Nevidio canyon is still relatively unexplored but there are now an increasing number of experienced guides who can take tourists canyoning in safety. It is described as a magical place, the Miracle Unseen, and Europe's Pearl.

However, with the sea, the lakes, the canyons and the mountains, all within a short distance, it is a country that can offer a great variety of vacations. Indeed, they boast that within a single day, tourists can enjoy coffee on the Budva Riviera, eat lunch on Skardar Lake, while being serenaded by bird song and then dine in the evening next to a fireplace, on the slopes of the Durmitor Mountain.
