The Spring Camp 2020 cancelation will leave several hiking trails in Montenegro coastal zone in quite bad state. But, there are 2 very important well visited hiking trails which are in really bad condition. We are wishing to open those trails by announcing the “Alternative Spring Camp 2020” in June.
Despite to still restricted traffic via Montenegro (including worldwide) borders, we are calling all adventurous Nature Lovers and dedicated hikers / campers happened to be in Montenegro to join us!
In this very moment the Alternative Spring Camp starting date is an unknown, but as soon as I will be able to enter in Montenegro (being currently in Serbia) without obliged 14 days quarantine – action program will be urgently put in schedule and sent to all interested volunteers. The most probably, starting date will be known 3 days before and it has to be in June, hopefully before the summer heat. Meeting point, as usual, is Perast.
Planned activity is about 5 days, focused in Vranovo brdo (above Perast) and in Crkvice. Both locations are in magic surroundings above the Boka Kotorska bay.
Working tools, tents and food will be provided from the side of organizer. Necessary gear for a volunteer to bring: is working clothes, rain gear and sleeping bag.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Last year (the 6th “Spring Camp), volunteers who worked on cleaning up the trails were from Austria (pre-camp, April crew), Australia, Bosnia, Netherlands, Slovenia, Switzerland, USA and Montenegro.

Again, this year’s wish is to have many international and regional participants, people who love mountains and voluntary work and want to share their experiences.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

The trails that you will be clearing up cover some of the most picturesque hiking area in Europe.

Excursions & Events

Montenegro is still very unspoiled and doesn’t feature too prominently on the tourist map so you will get a unique experience to visit the country before more tourists descend on it.

Kotor Bay (UNESCO cultural heritage site) is known as the “furthest southern fjord in Europe” and has a unique location. It lies on the former frontier between the Austro Hungarian and the Ottoman Empires which incidentally is the border between EU and non EU countries of the Balkan Peninsula today.

Excursions & Events

You are going to spend few days in/above Boka Kotorska Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the world.

Volunteers will visit UNESCO sites Perast and Kotor, having a boat trip and guided cultural tours there.

HOW TO COME?

In short, you are getting some amazing photography opportunities, lots of local knowledge that volunteers from the region are happy to share, great camaraderie and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Not to mention the opportunity to be a pioneer in helping Montenegro to develop sustainable and eco-friendly tourism.

During the “Spring Camp”, volunteers will have several excursions and restaurant meals in aim to experience the local hospitality, food, culture and history.

HOW TO COME?

MONTENEGRO?

A small country in Balkans down the Adriatic Coast and it has five neighboring countries: Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania.
The nearest airports to Perast (the “Spring Camp” starting point) are Tivat (30km), Dubrovnik (60 km) and Podgorica (100km) where Easyjet and Ryanair fly to.

May is still early season so you should be able to find an affordable flight.

Regarding to luggage transports between the campsites, it is going to be provided by vehicles, so don’t be afraid if your luggage weight is bit oversized for carrying it on trail.

Expected weather in May is warm during the day (up to 25+ C), but nights are still fresh and in extreme cases the lowest temperatures could be close to 0 C, what is not to be expected in general.

A team of film makers will record the events in the camp thus making an easily accessible story about the event and the area where it would be conducted.
