Reviewed on 05 Jul 2019 by Margit MatthewsThe most memorable part of the holiday was finding a little cafe on the side of a hill on our way to Virpazar. It came along just at the right time when we were needing some refreshments and shade. We had a lovely plate of cheese, bread and olives made for us which went down treat. They also made us cherry juice 'to go' to take with us. Read full review

PlanetMost of our tours include the five National parks of Montenegro. Each of them features unique environments and rich ecological values, which require corresponding attitude from visitors. Lake Skadar, the biggest lake at the Balkan peninsula features a very rich bird fauna. In our multi-activity and family tours we offer bird watching with kayaks. These tours are guided by bird protection activists, who are supported by our programms.
We avoid using off-road jeep transfers, since some areas do have a very fragile soil surface. Anyhow we believe in the first line that our feet can take us everywhere. In order to avoid empty transfer kilometers we cooperate with transport providers, who are closest to a starting or pick up point of our tours. We include public transport in our tours where applicable. Eg. transfer by train form the coastline to the north of Montenegro saves 115km on the road.
In general we use almost no printed marketing material. To present our company and products we use tablets. The design works for our website is done by local creatives.
We encourage our guests to use re-fillable waterbottles, since tab water is drinkable in Montenegro.
PeopleWhile including as many local people to our tours and we hope to build a bridge between visitors and locals and create better understanding for all day life challenges in Montenegro. Even there is most of the time a huge language barrier, both sides enjoy the direct interaction
We highly value the knowledge and work of our business partners, who most all of them being considered as friends. Our local guides we usually recruit from the Northern parts of Montenegro, since this part of the country provides little opportunities for employment.
Food & produce: Culinary: an integral part of real understanding and enjoyment of a region or country is eating the local food.
This ensures that the local producers see how valuable their produce is, in terms of keeping farming traditions alive, which on one side ensures a maintained landscape, which is on the other side the base for rural tourism. We encourage our guests to buy local produce for souvenirs eg. home made Rakija (spirit), honey products, artisan wines, olive oil products, etc.
We cooperate with farmer communities, which noticed that providing an insight to their daily life up in the mountains describes a special experience for guests. In return this interest in their lifestyle and the generated additional income contributes to make people to stay up in the mountains producing traditional dairy products and maintaining the landscape.
