Responsible tourism

Montenegro cruise and cycling vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

By using a small vessel that can access the smallest ports, in addition to using sail power whenever practical, we restrict our travel to just a few miles per day, unlike larger vessels that have to travel a great deal further between ports.

Sail power has very obvious benefits and we hope to sail under sail power up to some of the time, though this obviously depends on the prevailing weather conditions.

The small size of these cruise vessels and the small passenger numbers ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism. This also enables small communities to host tourists without the need for building hotels and other infrastructure that may be required.

All our waste is returned to port and disposed of responsibly as we know that the beauty of the environment we work and live in provides us with our income. If we spoil our environment our livelihood would be in jeopardy.

All the food on board is bought locally; fruit, vegetables, plenty of fish, shellfish and other seafood, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman. This has a threefold benefit of reducing food miles, supporting local communities and providing our customers with very fresh food.

Community

Although only a small vessel we provide full time employment for 4 staff on board, plus a bike guide. The crew, at leat half of whom are usually from the area, have been cruising and biking here for several years and know the area where we cruise and ride well. In addition by visiting small ports and harbours, and encouraging our guests to eat ashore on most evenings we are supporting local businesses as well as farmers and fishermen, as most of the produce in the restaurants is grown locally.

Our chef on board uses almost entirely fresh local produce, which, apart from providing our guests with healthy and very tasty food, supports local farmers and fishermen in their traditional methods.

We encourage our passengers to learn a few words (or more) of the local language so they can communicate a little with anyone they meet. We also encourage them to try some fresh produce rather than well known huge international brands.

The vessels managers support the Montenegro Red Cross, specifically in their efforts to improve the quality of life and reduce the poverty of the elderly in Montenegro. This is aimed at people 65 or over who are not covered by other forms of assistance; elderly people who are in poor health; elderly people in a state of social need; older people living alone or with someone in need.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The most exciting part of our trip was when our captain set the sails and dolphins swam alongside us.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Just pack very casual clothing and prepare for very warm weather.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. Dinner was on your own and we probably sampled ice cream at every
village we visited. I can't say conservation and environmental impacts were emphasize.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


It was an extremely relaxing and beautiful trip.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Service of the crew & sociability of the group.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Not much cycling 98% freewheeling! It is too mountainous for easy cycling.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes to the first part. We ate our evening meals out, all services used were local. Disposing of rubbish & recycling is a major problem

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Very good value.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Beautiful yacht with smiling service from the captain and his three crew; very good meals; delightful company from other members of the group; stunning scenery; picturesque coastal towns and villages; traffic-free roads and lanes; the prolific wild flowers; conquering the more challenging hills!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Bring a range of clothing. Don't assume the weather will always be dry and hot! This year May was particularly wet, but once summer comes, it comes to stay. Water and helmets are provided. The routes chosen are suitable for all ages, providing people are fit and actively cycling at home. Our oldest participant was 84.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


To the extent that the guides were local and we ate in locally owned restaurants. The restaurant food was fresh and locally sourced. The cycling service was provided locally. And of course cycles produce no pollution!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Very enjoyable! The admin regarding pick-ups and delivery back to the airport needs to be improved; the cycling guide and drivers could be more pro-active in giving information. Otherwise a delightful, varied vacation for active people.
