Mountain hut "Za Vratlom"

Mountain hut "Za Vratlom" was completely reconstructed during 2011. Reconstruction was financed by Ministry of Tourism of Montenegro with logistics help of German GIZ.  It is in the true sense of the word a mountain home, located 7km rectilinear from Herceg Novi, at an altitude of 1160m. The building is at the heart of the mountain, it can be reached by walking or by off-road vehicle, and has preserved the look and spirit of good old mountain homes. It is open on agreement (upon announcement). Hut is located in the southern part of the massif Orjen, a marked path leads to it from the city bus station. There is a asphalt road from Herceg Novi until the motel "Borići" (closed) from which the hut is 1-hour walk away. It is surrounded by meadows and forests above which rise many rocky peaks. The building is equipped with 50 beds, 7 bedrooms, spacious dining room, kitchen, central heating system, 2 cisterns (rain water), water pump with UV filter, photovoltaics panels and aggregate for electricity. Heating is by wood. PK Subra provides accommodation and upon agreement food, beverages and guides (detailed in Prices). The building is a convenient base for one or more days hiking tours on Orijen, and good location to perform a variety of courses and camps (caving, climbing, hiking, marking etc). Subra peak, a top mountaineering, caving, and rock climbing destination is nearby and more than 10 other interesting destinations, mostly peaks and chasms. An excellent network of marked hiking trails leads to every destination. If you plan to visit "Za Vratlom" hut please contact us in advance.
