Babino Polje: Gateway to Montenegro’s Natural Wonders

Nestled amidst the rugged Montenegro, Babino Polje stands as the first village you encounter upon crossing the border from Kosovo. This settlement, home to a Bosnian Muslim community, welcomes visitors with open arms and a deep-rooted pride in their mountaineering heritage.

Babino Polje is a picture of simplicity, with small houses, farms, and families living in harmony with the region’s natural resources. While the village offers limited guesthouse options, the Hrid Guesthouse, run by community leader and national park ranger Enes Dreshkoviq, stands out for its warm hospitality and commitment to providing an authentic mountain experience. Enes envisions keeping the guesthouse open during the winter months to accommodate ski touring enthusiasts.

The culinary delights of Babino Polje revolve around dairy products, with kajmak, a regional specialty, taking center stage. This unique product, crafted from aged milk crust, was traditionally used as a substitute for butter.

Embracing its strategic location, Babino Polje offers captivating hiking routes that connect it to Liqenat in Kosovo and lead to the breathtaking Hrid glacial lake and the town of Plav. For those seeking a more condensed Peaks of the Balkans Trail experience, Babino Polje can be seamlessly linked with Doberdol in Albania.

Accessible by 4×4 vehicles along a well-maintained road, Babino Polje invites you to immerse yourself in its authentic charm, savor its culinary delights, and embark on unforgettable hiking adventures that reveal the captivating beauty of Montenegro’s highlands.

Balkan Natural Adventure, proposes to take a transport and do a hike in Gerbaja valley, which is a detour from the original Peaks of the Balkans tour.
