Emails are out to two environmentally sensitive adventure tour companies in Montenegro. Just waiting to hear from them before deciding which one to go with.
Annalisa Rellie, who wrote the best English language travel guide devoted to Montenegro that I've found, recommends both. But it does look like she favors Vila Jelka. From these pictures on their web site, I can see why!
On of the things they offer is a horseback ride up into the summer pastures.
You "camp" in these great private cabins. All the meals are prepared open air and using only organic local products.
Not exactly 'roughing it', huh?
I've figured out the train schedule from Belgrade to Kolosin. Now I'm trying to research the best way to get to Belgrade.
I'm leaning toward the comfortable familiar... Just fly round trip into FCO. Transfer to a JAT Airways flight straight from Rome to Belgrade. The timing of the flights are actually very good, we would arrive in Rome at about 8AM and depart for Belgrade at about 10 AM.
We are planning to fly out of FCO anyway on our way home in July.
I'm having less luck finding just the right island hopping cruise in Dobrovnick.
Since, these cruises are scheduled with specific departure dates, we have to nail this down first, before we do any other scheduling.
We are looking for something in the 20-30 passenger range. We really would like a mast ship, but it seems the motorized ones are much, much more reasonable.
Ah, well...the research continues.
