With the today's promotional trip Atlas travel agency has presented to the general public the new catamaran in it's fleet – the Adriatic Jet. The leading domestic travel agency will with this attractive vessel be offering attractive day trips by catamaran to Albania and Montenegro, from July until the end of September.

There are two types of day trips in the programme: ‘The Colours of Albania’ and ‘Albania, the Land of Eagles’. The Colours of Albania trip includes tours of Durres and Tirana, the country’s dynamic capital, with visits to numerous places of interest. The Albania, the Land of Eagles trip, offers a bus trip to Kruja, the birthplace of Albanian hero Skenderbeg, after the visit to Durres.

New day trips to Montenegro, Montenegro Tour and Montenegro Blue, offer an attractive boat ride through the Boka Kotorska bay. Montenegro Tour includes arrival to Kotor, a drive to Cetinje with a stop at the Njeguši village, visit to Budva with a short tour of the town then returning to Kotor for the sightseeing of the town’s historical core and the St. Tryphon’s cathedral. From Kotor the trip goes back to Dubrovnik by catamaran. The Montenegro Blue day trip offers a boat ride to Perast and the Our Lady of Škrpjel islet, then a visit to Budva from where the trip heads to Kotor, with an orientation tour of the town before returning to Dubrovnik.

The said day trips give a unique pleasure and seaside experience, at the same time avoiding the crowds at the busy border crossings between Croatia and Montenegro.

Apart from these, Atlas also organises weekly day trips to Mljet, one of the most beautiful island on the Adriatic, with the same catamaran.
