How To Reach Ski Resorts in Montenegro?
Since you are planning a winter vacation in Montenegro, there is no doubt that you will visit some of the popular Montenegrin ski resorts. Whether you are coming for a short period or long term stay, there is no doubt that you will need transportation.
There are two popular ways to visit popular ski centers.
The first is the most popular but less flexible. Daily bus tours to the most popular ski resorts are the usual way to reach ski centers. Prices vary but are generally affordable.
If you still like flexibility and travel by your peace, a car rental in Montenegro is the best choice. We highly recommend renting a car with a local company Tara-Car. Besides flexibility, you will be less exposed to larger groups if traveling with the car. In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to stay safe.
