Why there’s way more to Ulcinj than a beach and citadel - part 2. Flamingos! Pelicans! Amazing local food (thanks to Taste of Ulcinj)! And cracking sunsets! 🦩🌅 We’ve been bringing birdwatching groups to Ulcinj’s saltpans for almost 10 years as THE place to see wild flamingo and waders like Black-winged Stilt. Thanks to the determined efforts of local & international conservationists, this mecca for birds is now a protected nature park since 2019 and a Ramsar site. Our experience last week was the best yet. Some 300 flamingos were there, spread across the saltwater basins, with one group less than 100 metres away. We also spotted Dalmatian Pelican and countless other water birds! Wish we'd had a decent zoom lens - something firmly on the kit list for our 2022 Montenegro birdwatching adventures which are running w/c 10 April & w/c 1 May (full info & booking at buff.ly/3DNajiz) Our visit has inspired us to bring more of Ulcinj’s hidden gems into our itineraries. Watch this space for more undiscovered adventures! With thanks to Centar za zaštitu i proučavanje ptica Crne Gore, MSJA - Dr. Martin Schneider-Jacoby Association and everyone involved in this amazing fam trip. We hope a solution comes soon to fully restore the salt works at Ulcinj’s saltpans and secure the future for this vital resting and nesting area! #undiscoveredmontenegro #savesalina #saltyepiculcinj #montenegrowildbeauty #sustainabletourism ...

Who needs some #yoga and #nature therapy? Inspired by today’s full moon 🌕, we’re looking ahead to next June and two special retreats we’re hosting with British Hatha/Vinyasa expert, Marnie Sullivan, based at stunning Lake Skadar! The first is already sold out , but we have seven spots still available for week commencing 19th June. If you’re looking for some untamed nature and the chance to focus on YOU, we can’t recommend it, Villa Miela Lake Retreat or Marnie Yoga, highly enough! 🧘✨😊 Read the review below from our 2021 guest Viv and book at: undiscoveredmontenegro.com/tours/montenegro-yoga-activity-holiday/Guest Viv's glowing review:"After trying a couple of yoga breaks in UK my husband and I decided to give a longer break abroad a go. We chose Marnie’s Montenegro holiday and what an amazing experience it was. Villa Miela is an idyllic location with fabulous views, and facilities to make our very first foreign Yoga break an holiday we will treasure forever. The activities in the surrounding area gave us so many memories to remember and the fun and laughter will be with us for many years. Thank you!” #undiscoveredmontenegro #yogaretreat #montenegro ...

We’ve been out researching new experiences at Ulcinj which go beyond the touristy sea, sand, sun loungers and citadel circuit! Day one took us on a cultural odyssey to the nearby villages of Montenegro’s ethnic Albanian communities. We were there to hike an old "kaldrma" trail and discover a history dating 8,000 years, along with a heap of medicinal plants still used for teas today.As we walked with our local hosts Rina and Artan, we heard the muezzin call ‘Azan’ from a village mosque in the hills – a reminder that even into the early 20th century, this part of Montenegro was still ruled by the Ottoman empire. Lunch was at a local home. Delicious traditional dishes with Turkish influence, prepared by the lovely Zana and accompanied by fresh pomegranate juice! Coffee afterwards was ‘sofra-style’, with everyone sat on the floor around a circular low table. It’s an arrangement which is so convivial and refreshing and centuries-old in places where, from the legacy of history, East meets West. Falaminderit to everyone involved in making this great day happen! We can’t wait to introduce this fascinating and authentic side of Ulcinj to our guests next year.#undiscoveredmontenegro #undiscoveredbalkans #saltyepiculcinj #montenegrowildbeauty MSJA - Dr. Martin Schneider-Jacoby Association MSJA - Dr. Martin Schneider-Jacoby Association ...
