Montenegro multi activity holiday, surf and turf
Description of Montenegro multi activity holiday, surf and turf
This small group, multi-activity holiday is a fantastic way to discover Montenegro’s northern mountains and stunning coastline, and includes nine full days of trekking, rafting, mountain biking, a jeep safari, zip lining, a day sailing, a boat tour, sea kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. Alongside the adventure activities, you’ll get to discover two different but picturesque locations; the Durmitor National Park and the coastal town of Herceg Novi.
Our holiday starts in the mountains of Montenegro, where our camp offers beautiful mountain views and the lush green forest of Durmitor is only meters away. The surrounding area contains a phenomenal 18 glacial lakes, alongside many canyons, caves and tall mountain peaks. Durmitor's Tara River, where we will go rafting, is the second deepest canyon in the whole world, after the Grand Canyon. The local town of Zabljak offers many great restaurants, cafes and bars.
Herceg Novi is truly a breathtaking town, known as the 'Monte Carlo' of the Montenegrin coastline. Here, we’ll stay in a house near the seafront, not far from charming Old town, pretty seafront promenade and an abundance of restaurants, bars and cafes.
This holiday is ideal for groups of guests, with a minimum of 4 guests required per holiday booking. Our Mountain camp has 4 self-catering apartments, spread over a large garden space, with a total of 6 double bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, and comfortably sleeps groups from 2-12 guests. Our coastal house can accommodate larger groups and also has a nice garden space.

Reviewed on 22 Aug 2019 by Joanna KatzDurmitor is incredible, the hike through the forest to see the Black Lakes was amazing, as was the rafting through the Tara river canyon - but the drive back from Durmitor to Niksic, with the amazing views around every band - I will never forget it.

Reviewed on 28 Sep 2018 by AnonomousThe most memorable part of this trip would have to be the beautiful scenery that you encounter through each of the activities. The most exciting part was the canyoning activity which I thoroughly enjoyed. Read full review

Reviewed on 18 Aug 2017 by Caroline McGregorWe 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.

PlanetWe have been living by the coast in Montenegro for over 12 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.
PeopleWe 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 many 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.
