The wilderness of Montenegrin forests and mountains offer boletus, chanterelles and morels.

Northern mountain dishes complete the magic of Durmitor, Bjelasica and Sinjajevina. Kańćamak, gruel, wild game dishes, dairy products and honey prepared with an old secret recipe are an integral part of the culture of the north.
