Rakovic Katun in Biogradska Gora National Park – Montenegro

A mountain hut for overnight stays for hikers, bikers, and adventurers deep inside Biogradska Gora

A microcosm of nature that is rainforest, wetlands, stone rivers, mountain peaks and glacial lakes, Biogradska Gora deserves several days of exploration. Definitely, take in the impressive Biogradska Gora Lake at the main entrance, but see the spectacular unknown spots in the park too. While you are there you can experience Montenegrin hospitality and farm to table foods at the Rakovic Katun in Biogradska Gora National Park.

The Rakovic Katun lies next to the slopes of Crna Glava (2139m). It is situated between Sisko, Ursulova, Pesica and Sevarine Lakes. All around the katun grow rare, endemic flora like the dwarf mountain pine and the yellow gentian. Photography of the landscapes, flora and fauna, and locals continuing to live mountain life steeped in their tradition and culture.

Katun life offers a slower pace of mountain life. The Rakovic Katun purposely avoids having running water and electricity giving it a sustained rustic experience. Nighttime lighting comes from oil lamps and candles. Heat is by a traditional wood stove which also heats water for an outdoor shower.

The Rakovic Katun offers an unforgettable experience for adventurers. The terrain is perfect for off-road adventures in a 4×4, motorcycle, mountain bike, or on foot hiking. Stay a night on a hut-to-hut adventure or stay for days and recalibrate with the quiet, isolated beauty of Biogradska Gora National Park.

  1. In a word: Amazing!

    We stayed in the Rakovic Katun for three nights and it was amazing! The views from the katun are even better than on the photos. The hikes around the place were beautiful. Stefan and Sonja are really kind hosts, always making sure that we had everything that we needed and even more. Getting there by car is indeed challenging but we managed it with a simple car. Tip: book the meals, they are really good and there is not really any other option to get food around there 🙂

  2. Dramatically beautiful scenery...

    Rakovic Katun was our first 3 night stay on a 14 day hut to hut mountain biking journey through Montenegro. Stephan and Sanya were kind hosts, allowing us to move to a larger cabin with wood heat when we were cold (we arrived at Biogradska Gora in very early season) and doing everything possible to ensure we had a enjoyable stay. Dramatically beautiful scenery and excellent hiking as well as mountain biking for the adventurous cyclist. We loved getting to know our hosts and spending time in the special place.
