How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
- The main settlements of Lake Skadar – Virpazar, Rijeka Crnojevica, Godinje, Murici, Karuc and Dododosi – have suffered years of increasing impoverishment resulting from urban migration, an earthquake in 1979 and and a lack of public investment during and after the 1990s Balkan war. Tourism is now developing as a new and valuable sector of the economy in this area of outstanding natural beauty, however the market is currently focused on day trippers who, in increasing numbers, are coached in and shepherded onto petrol-driven cruise boats, polluting the water, threatening the wildlife and producing little financial benefit beyond the tour company they booked with.
- Undiscovered Montenegro is committed to boosting the local economy at Lake Skadar with longer-staying guests (who spread their spending) and by ensuring the financial benefit of our customers is felt at a micro level. We hope others will follow our example.
