Responsible tourism: Montenegro multi activity mountain holiday, all ages

Environment

We have been living by the coast in Montenegro for 9 years. We are lovers of nature and along with the stunning Montenegrin coastline we also very much enjoy the mountains of Montenegro and especially the UNESCO National park of Durmitor. We absolutely love and appreciate our camp which is surrounded by its perfect nature and it's scenic setting, and for guests to enjoy both adventures and relaxing. Along with pristine nature there is an abundance of great adventure activities on offer for all guests to take part in and we hope all our guests will have a relaxing and fun filled active holiday stay with us.

Nearly all of our activities have the concept of Eco tourism and mostly all of our activities are deemed as not harmful to the environment. Indeed the Durmitor National Park is a UNESCO protected national park and considered an 'Air' spa for visitors.

We provide all our guests with a friendly welcome BBQ meal and drink on arrival of stay. We also provide packed lunches and we buy all our produce directly from the market place, from local farmers in the area, such as locally produced jams, preserves, fruit berries, meats and cheeses. We also have a cultural day out where our guests shall have a traditional Montenegrin meal which again has all foods and drinks that are locally produced such as meats, wines and plum brandy, etc.

Our camp is surrounded by green fields, mountains and forests and we shall be discarding wherever possible all rubbish for recycling. We shall also have our outdoor lights run on solar energy and energy saving bulbs. We also offer our guests free usage of mountain bikes which we shall encourage our guests to use, so they can travel around the area by Eco transport.

Our team leaders are all local to the area and we hope to show our guests the benefits of protecting our environment on our activities. Our Hiking team leaders are also part of the conservation of the Durmitor forest and they will be explaining all aspects of nature to our guests on activities.

Community

We directly aim to create jobs and employ and empower local people in that region, which are heavily dependent on incomes from tourism in this region. Locals in the Durmitor region generally live from tourism or farming and so it's a massive chunk of their income to be involved within the sector of tourism.

We employ 6 team leaders and also have a staff for the day to day running of our camp. We are hoping that we shall be able to make a difference in the community by employing locals and they shall have a direct benefit of being employed and gaining an income from our weekly package stays.

We shall encourage all of our staying guests to explore Durmitor for themselves on free days and evening times, and hope they'll visit local restaurants, cafes and eateries in the town of Zabljak which will economically help other local business's.

This is our first season in 2016 and we shall hopefully be a success this year and we shall endeavor to include as much possible for local people to be employed and for income to be spent back into the camp and to stay with the community.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The best part of our holiday was the exposure we had to so many different walking routes and activities right on our doorstep. We experienced so many different things from ziplining across a large canyon to trekking through valleys and swimming in the black lakes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


We would tip other travellers not to be afraid to try their own walking and cycling routes on their days off from normal activities. Everything is very well signposted and you can take short or long trips that are outside the scope of the set activities.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes I feel that the holiday benefited the local community in the sense that it brought tourism to the area. It is also good to utilise the national parks on offer to show that they are worthwhile spending time and money on whilst always teaching people about nature as a whole.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


We would rate our holiday very highly. We reommend Stan completely as a host, he was fantastic from the very start both as a tour guide and his hosting abililities around the apartments. We were welcomed in with opened arms and he was always available to help. He in fact makes the holiday as all of the activities are built up over the knowledge he has gained from living in the country for so many years . We would love to come back one day and we would happily recommend this holiday to friends and family.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The best thing I did on my holiday was Canyoning in the Nevidio Canyon in Durmitor. My first time Canyoning and it was spectacular, the scenery was beautiful, it was challenging and exhilarating passing over the rocks, between the passes and into the pools. Our guide was extremely professional, really made us feel safe but at the same time made it fun!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be sure to bring appropriate clothing and footwear and enough of it if your planning to do the outdoor activities! There is so much to do and see in the region if you are the outdoors type.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The holiday definitely benefited the area, I stayed near Zabljak which is still a growing town.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


My holiday was fantastic, mostly thanks to my host Stan of holiday provider. He provided excellent service, information and suggestions all the while being flexible to my plans and arranging all my activities for me. A true gentlemen who will do everything he can to make your experience the best it can be.
