Responsible tourism: Montenegro multi activity holiday, surf and turf

Environment

We have been living by the coast in Montenegro for over 10 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?


We loved the cycling tour day in Durmitor which included taking the ski-lift and then climbing to the top of Savin Kuk through swathes of alpine flowers, then cycling along quiet back roads with the mountains always in view, to a lake for swimming, where flocks of sheep were being shepherded by on the other side.

At the coast, it was HOT for us pale and weedy Scots so getting into the water was blissful. I loved sitting up front on the sailing boat Manta, glass of rosι wine
in hand, dangling my feet over the side as we scudded along heading back to port in the late afternoon.

Stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, rafting down the river Tara, the boat trip to Kotor and Perast, a traditional Montenegrin meal, the longest zip-line in
Europe – they were all great experiences. But really it was Stan and Goca, Lara and Dimitri, Evgenia, Misha (our fellow guests), Goran, Natasha, Ilya, Ljubo,
Alexa, Blaj (our instructors and guides) who made the holiday so memorable.

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


Be prepared for cold and wet weather in the mountains - it can happen and we experienced it for a couple of days before it turned beautifully warm and sunny.

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


All the activity providers were local people running their own small businesses.

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


Great, a real mix ox experiences. Montenegro does exactly what it promises – the mountains are everywhere, from the high peaks of Durmitor to the fjord of
the Bay of Kotor.

A huge thank you to Stan and Goca for organising our holiday in Montenegro. They are the warmest, most hospitable and obliging hosts and we really appreciate everything they did, particularly Goca’s home-made cheese pie with filo pastry for breakfast, and her fabulous raspberry jam.
