Kotor travel packages

Europe's southernmost fjord. You'll be stunned by Kotor's amazing natural beauty and the well-preserved medieval Old Town.

Kotor is an undiscovered gem. The sight of Kotor Bay is spectacular, as steep black mountains come almost to the water. The center of Kotor is typical of the Middle Ages. It consists of medieval architecture, numerous monuments and narrow streets and squares as well as a fortress. This, combined with the incredible natural surroundings, makes for a dramatic setting. It's easy to see why Kotor is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The rest of Kotor Bay, and Montenegro, is worth exploring. Several smaller towns make up the bay, including charming Perast. From Perast by boat you can also access two islets in the center of the bay. On one you will find Our Lady of the Rocks Church, which houses a significant collection of paintings by a local baroque artist from the 17th century. The views over the bay are worth the trip alone. For those with stamina, the climb to the Kotor Fortress is definitely worth it. Visitors can enjoy breathtaking views at the top. The Old Town's lanes and alleyways are lined with outdoor seating for its many bars and restaurants. These offer excellent local seafood and other Balkan specialities. If you do visit Kotor, don't forget to visit other destinations in Montenegro!

What I love about Kotor

Whenever I think of Kotor the first memory that comes to mind is of the best and freshest mussels I've eaten in my life. The conditions in the bay are just perfect for farming them. A visit to the mussels farm is an absolute must! Then there's those staggering walls! Just how did they build them? A couple of nights here is an excellent addition to your tour of the region if you want to go beyond Croatia and there are far fewer tourists than in Dubrovnik!

Where to stay in Kotor

The small old town of Kotor, with its UNESCO-protected status, means hotel options aren't too plentiful, but our research trips have unearthed some real gems, and we can say with full confidence that your accommodation will be an integral part of your experience of this magical place. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
Stylish Boutique Hotel
Cosy boutique hotel in the very heart of Kotor's walled old town with individually decorated rooms that incorporate the building's stone walls
Modern Apartments in a Historical Building
These family-run apartments are welcoming, comfortable and located within walking distance of most of the city's best sights.
Luxury Design Hotel
Just outside of the city, this luxurious 5-star hotel is one of the finest in the area.

Things to do in Kotor

For those overnighting in Kotor we are able to provide private guide services should you want to explore the historical UNESCO Old Town center. If you're fit, we suggest the steep climb to the fortress over looking Kotor Bay. The views are absolutely breathtaking, you will be glad you made the climb. There are a number of charming towns on the bay to visit including Perast. From there for a small fee you can take a boat trip to Our Lady of the Rocks, which is a must see while in Kotor. This can also be visited as part of one of our favorite tours, which combines a visit to a mussels farm with a guided visit of the church on the island. We suggest using Kotor as a base from which to see the rest of Montenegro, especially with a rental car. Our top recommendation outside Kotor is the remarkable sight of Sveti Stefan, a former fishing village on a tiny island turned luxury resort connected to the mainland by a thin sand tombolo. Sadly, since the late 2000s it is only accessible to hotel guests (and a basic cottage runs over €1,000 a night, with a minimum three night stay!) or to those with a lunch or dinner reservation, but you can still sunbathe on the public beach on the south side of tombolo for free. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

We were so well cared for, it took all the worry out of getting around and making arrangements. The tour that was planned for us was exactly what we hoped for. We have both agreed it was one of the best holidays we have ever had... and we have traveled all over the world for many years.

We'd never taken a trip organized by a tour company so we entered into this proposition with a lot of uncertainty. We will now have a hard time not always using JayWay (assuming they cover our destination)--we truly felt spoiled.
