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.
