Durmitor is perhaps most famed for its rafting, which is among the best in Europe. This can be arranged though agencies on the coast or in Žabljak itself – try Summit, Njegoševa bb (052 360082), or Žabljak Tourist, Svetog Save 37 (052 361115) – which charge around €50 per person for a half-day trip. Hiking is great from June to September, though since this is a wild area do come prepared, and be warned that the weather can change rapidly, even in summer. The aforementioned agencies can provide maps. Wintertime opens up skiing possibilities, and snowboarding is on the rise too; the main slopes are accessible from Žabljak, with day-passes costing €15, and ski hire almost the same.
