Accommodation[edit]

Žabljak is largest town on mountain Durmitor, high mountain in northern Montenegro (2,522 m).

There are four major hotels in Žabljak: Planinka, Jezera, Žabljak and Durmitor (nowadays only hotel Žabljak is still working). Besides these, there are a couple of small motels (MB, Bjeloor...) in and around town.

Also, there is a quite well settled hostel named Guesthouse Volume up the Love which is pretty new and it is near the city centre, but still in a quiet neighborhood.

We could say that almost every local resident is willing to rent a room, so accommodation in Žabljak is quite abundant, except in the summertime and around New year's eve, when the place is really overcrowded.

Lodging[edit]

Eko Rafting Piva[1] has apartments in wooden houses overlooking the river.

Camping[edit]

Some of the rafting companies offer camping facilities.
