Montenegro is a very attractive country for the lovers of paragliding. Weather conditions are ideal throughout the whole year. Due to its geostrategic placement Montenegro makes it possible for paragliding pilots to take off from different places situated in three geographical zones (south – Adriatic sea; central zone and north zone (mountains). The best known take offs are found at the Adriatic Coast. However, we would suggest that other two zones abound with fantastic take off places.
