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
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.
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.
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.
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!
In 2016 the camp will open from 6th May to 23rd September.
In the past the camp has always been clothing optional. In 2016 the camp will be clothing optional from 16th June - 4th September.

The heart of the camp is the building which houses the kitchen and bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make meals including cutlery, crockery and a gas hob.
You can then enjoy them al-fresco in the beautiful surroundings at the picnic tables around the building.
In line with the rest of the camp, the bathrooms are modern and eco-friendly with enough solar-heated hot water for everyone.
A games and book library, hammocks and organic vegetable gardens round out the ‘home away from home’ atmosphere and ensure there’s always something to do.
