Tour Details

Ladder of Kotor Hike

Descend from Njegusi Village to the old town of Kotor on this scenic Ladder of Kotor hiking tour. This is an absolute "must see" of Montenegro for any hiking enthusiast.

This Kotor excursion starts at the home of the famous Montenegrin ruler, bishop, and poet, Petar II. From there, you'll follow an old horse trail to the Krstac Pass for a magnificent view of the whole bay area. The ladder starts here as you walk down an old military zig-zag-road. There are more than 70 U-turns on this scenic trail.

Reach the ruins and deserted village of Spiljari to see an interesting church. Along the way, see the Venetian fortress of San Giovanni and complete the tour on a stairway ending directly in the center of Kotor.

This trail is considered easy to moderate for regular hiking enthusiasts. Caution should be observed on a short part of the trail directly after the pass where there are loose rocks and you need to watch your steps. This hiking tour is a must do from Montenegro. Book now to secure your space.

It was a workout (for me anyway)!
August 07, 2019
We booked this excursion thinking it would be fun to get some exercise while getting to see the gorgeous Kotor bay and the glistening town from above. We met our very friendly guide who hired a taxi and drove to the top (20+ switchbacks). It was just us and our guide so we had some great conversation on the way down. The walk was a more difficult task than we anticipated because the path is steep and mostly loose rock or slippery rock. You will definitely need good walking shoes (think walking 4 miles on hard rock downhill). It is mostly in the direct sun too so sunscreen, hat and water is necessary. We had a nice break on the way down and enjoyed some great pomegranate juice (skip the Raki). The views are great!
