Green Country 

Did you know that Montenegro is eco-country by its Constitution? On September 20th 1991, the Declaration was adopted in the city of Zabljak and Montenegro became the first eco-country in the world. The next year, this Declaration was presented in the UN Conference for Environment Protection.

Montenegro indeed has such stunning natural beauties and it’s all clear once you are here why this is eco-country.  Unfortunately, Montenegro experienced 2 wars after the adoption of this declaration (luckily without serious consequences), so the actual actions on this topic were lacking or were minor and performed by some individuals, although the country has this idea as the main goal of the longterm development.

FitCamp Montenegro Developing Sustainable Tourism 

We have a sustainable tourism idea as our top goal for FitCamp Montenegro development. We started building our estate to bring a new dimension and fresh energy to the tourism in Montenegro, by living in accordance with nature and use it only in a proper way by respecting it. 

Our guests are invited to give their input and help us be better, so that is why we are including them in what we do at the estate, from food production, waste management, clean-ups and so much more! We want to bring you to the next level of vacationing – which is all combined in this concept of travelling with a purpose. See more here.

Growing Food

Eco-friendly 

How do we succeed in being-in-accordance-with nature?

First of all, we don’t use city water system, but we collect rainfall in our huge underground containers. These are plugged on e-pumps that are bringing the water inside the community home and accommodation units.

We produce our food in 2 gardens that we have at the moment, with plans of expanding the production area once we have more accommodation units, to be able to supply the food for our guests. We grow fruits and vegetables and we supply milk, eggs and meat from the local community. Other than this, we grow medicinal herbs and we are treating all our guests with professional nutritionists’ classes during their stay.

Eco Fashion by FitCamp Montenegro 

We want our guests to have an amazing time in Montenegro. With experiencing the next level of vacation, there must be the next level of souvenirs from travels! Thus, we create our souvenirs out of natural materials only and these are available to our lovely guests!

FitCamp Montenegro Clothes

Amongst our team members, we have people talented for various sorts of things, amongst which is drawing too. We came up with an idea to put our drawings on T-shirts, underwear and sportswear, so you can have it as a souvenir from your trip to FitCamp Montenegro.

FitCamp Montenegro Canvas Sack

As we care about nature so much, we are amongst the group of people in Montenegro who started with the petition to ban single-use plastics. This is one of the main polluters of our planet Earth and we want to motivate our guests to use canvas sacks only! We created ones with our logo that are perfect as a present to a dear person, or just for own use.

FitCamp Montenegro Reusable Bottles

To ban single-use plastic is very easy! And it’s even more affordable to live without it, just think of it! At FitCamp Montenegro, we have branded our reusable water bottles, perfect for sports activities, to days in nature and every-day outdoors life!

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.

Hiking to Nozdra

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.
