Eco-Camping At Camp Full Monte

Camp Full MonteCamp Full Monte sits nestled in the lush hills above Herceg Novi

Eco-camping and responsible tourism is becoming more and more important to travellers. People want to travel and at the same time they want to minimise their footprint. If you're an eco-conscious traveller who's keen to see some of Montenegro's beauty - we have just the place for you.

There’s one place in Montenegro that’s truly ‘off the grid’ and eco-friendly. This is where you can experience Montenegro’s wild beauty up close without disrupting it. Up in the hills above Herceg Novi, Camp Full Monte is an almost completely self-sufficient camp that doesn’t skimp on comfort.

At Camp Full Monte, you can relax, rest and enjoy feeling like you’re a world away from the hub-bub, while also being just a 15-20 minute drive from the beaches and town.


About Camp Full Monte

Camp Full Monte is an informal place where you have a wonderful sense of community with your fellow campers and the warm and fun-loving owners – Denise and Steve. They make sure the camp feels like your home away from home.  

You’re always free to join in the fun but if that’s not your style, the camp is more than big enough that you can find your own place of peace and quiet.

The Owners

Denise and Steve are passionate about living in harmony with nature and protecting the natural environment. That’s why the camp is fully eco-friendly – using solar heating, odourless composting toilets and water recycling systems.

If you’re interested in how they’ve done it, they’re more than happy to tell you about how they’ve managed to create this amazing off-grid camp.

Family Friendly

The camp is a great place for families. A stay here gives families the chance to forget hectic, everyday life and slow down. 

Children love exploring nature and here they'll have ample space and opportunity for truly free play. They'll be able to lose themselves in days of tree-climbing and discovery... the way childhood is supposed to be!
