The village is perfectly located, just 19 km from the city of Niksic (from the FitCamp estate). Our position in the country is central, so we are equally close to the north and south that makes our day trips much easier. In one hour we can reach the National Park Durmitor in the north, but at the same time, we can also be on the coast, sunbathing and enjoying sightseeing of medieval cities such as Kotor. The 2 Montenegrin airports are also about 1-hour drive away. National parks Skadar Lake and Lovcen are also 1-hour drive away. This makes FitCamp a perfect location to explore all of Montenegro.
The place where we are located has an amazing history! It was a crossroad to numerous historical events and during 500 years under the Ottoman Empire, this was a great place of one of the most impressive Montenegrins fight wins during the wars and battles we had with Turks through the history – the battle of Duga.
Although the Ottomans were conquerors, they lived in Montenegro as it’s their land. They have left many architectural pieces of art, such as enormous cisterns that they used to collect rainfall like we do today on our estate. On one of our hiking trips to Nozdra, you can see one of the biggest that they used to call “čatrnja”. That container made of stone and soil was able to collect around 500 m3 of rainfall. Assuming that people back then didn’t have the water supply through their villages and that this village was without natural water accumulations, this was a very clever way of collecting and providing water, as this system is used even today.
FitCamp Montenegro collects rainfall to be able to provide technical water at the estate, as we want to live following nature, like modern nomads that are keeping and protecting the thing that has given us the life!
Our village is the place of an extreme adventure for race lovers. Once a year, the Montenegro Trophy Off-Road Rally is held in our country and the trail is partially passing Nozdra – part of our village Presjeka. Nozdra is located just a couple of kilometres southeast of our FitCamp, so in case you are in Montenegro when this event happens, you can join and enjoy the sceneries! So much history and beautiful nature on this road are worth your time and this can be a real day adventure!
Our village is rich, so we have many vegetables and fruits growing at our estate, available to all our visitors. We have plans to increase the quantity, so that at one moment soon in the future, we can have all the food that we need at the estate. That will go hand in hand with our self-sustainability goals.
Mountain Njegos proudly stands in front of us and our back is protected by unmerciful mountain Golija. Golija is known for its rocky and cliffy terrain known as a part of the so-called “stone-sea”, in the Montenegrin west (from Kotor hinterlands to the north of Niksic Municipality). Golija is keeping our back from the north, which makes us protected from strong winds and makes our estate much warmer than other places at the same altitude. Speaking of which, we are at 900 m above sea level. Mountain Njegos in the south is separating us from the Lake Krupac, just 10 minutes drive from our village. You can also reach it by bicycle or motorcycle. This is a perfect place for swimming, sunbathing, fishing, volleyball at the beach and so much more and if you happen to come during August, maybe you will catch a famous Lake Fest – a popular rock ‘n roll festival held in the forest by the lake. Unique feeling!
Many hiking and cycling routes are passing our village and we will be able to bring you on these trips thanks to our professional partners and guides, who are reliable and well trained.
