Grebaje National Park, an outdoor paradise

Grebaje National Park set in the heart of Prokletije (Accursed Mountains) is a hiking paradise located in the southwest of Montenegro. There you can find very beautiful mountains with gorgeous views like mount Volušnica and mount Taljanka (in the border between Albania and Montenegro) that has an amazing view of the Karanfili massif, or Karanfili peaks, Očnjak,  and Vezirova Brada pass.

 

How to get to Grebaje National Park

Grebaje is located around 155 km from the capital of Macedonia, Podgorica. You can drive there by car, or take the bus from Podgorica to Plav, and then take a taxi from Plav to Gusinje. From Gusinje you can walk for around 4 km to Grebaje.

Another way to go to Grebaje is hiking from Lepushe. This is one of the most beautiful hikes in Albania and Montenegro, where you will enjoy the views of beautiful Karanfili massif.

 

About the Grebaje National Park

In Grebaje National Park you can find some restaurants and guesthouses that serve delicious local food. We had the chance to meet an Albanian family from Vusanje, that live in a mountain hut during the summertime. They were very friendly and their food was 100% bio. We tried the blueberry pie, which was very delicious:

The trails in this park are very well signed. You need to pay a fee for entrance to this National Park. The prices are 1€/day/person and 3€ per tent.

 

Hike to mount Volušnica and mount Taljanka

The hike starts from Grebaje, and you need to hike through a beautiful forest. After around 4 km you will have the chance to reach the mount Volušnica (1’897 m/alt)  where you can see the best views of this trail. Check out the picture:

I think this is the best spot for camping.

After this, through the ridge, you may go to Talijanka peak which has great views as well, and its elevation is 2’056 m/alt. There is no water source along this hike, so make sure to have around 3 liters of water. From Talijanka, you can go to Lepusha in Albania, or go back to Grebaje.
