Just back from an amazing week with Strel Swimming Adventures in Montenegro. A fantastic trip that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who loves swimming.

The holiday has the right balance of swimming, two 2km swims a day with scope to do longer distances if you prefer as well as a spot of walking and of course eating – great local food.

We stayed in a locally run hotel and Strel´s local knowledge meant the trip felt like a real Montenegran experience. Strel sets out to support small independent businesses. This also meant the trip was really good value.

Safety came first. The trip started with a safety briefing and every day our guides Borut and Alex would check the wind conditions to check all was good. When you swim there are three boats nearby.

Ultimately it´s the people on the trip who make your enjoyment and a shared love of swimming is a brilliant beginning to any friendship. I know I will stay in touch and have made some swimming friends for life.
