  • Description

    Description

    Hello, we are Matthieu and Daria. We are starting up a small glamping and activity business in Skadar Lake national park.
    We are now working on building wooden structures such as platforms for glamping tents, kitchen/restaurant and some smaller constructions.

    Our location is on a hillside with fantastic views over the surrounding mountains. A lot of hiking trails start nearby. The lake, rivers and stunning viewpoints are just around the corner. If you like working in beautiful surroundings, take out one of our canoes on the lake to admire a sunset, go for a long hike or go birdwatching . . . Then you will definatly feel at home here.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will see first hand a small glamping business getting shape.
    Matthieu has a good knowledge about the flora and fauna in the area, can share some cool bushcraft skills and teach you how to canoe.
    Daria likes handcrafts, making natural cosmetics and experiment in the kitchen.
    You will stay in a small village where they produce honey, cheese, wine and many more natural products. Facinating to see how the locals put their pasion into it.

    We are now mainly looking for handy people. Carpenters, plumbers, electricians or whatever skill that you have to build some cool structures.

    From July until the end of the season we also need people that can help with running the glamping. Main tasks and activities will be, preparing and serving breakfasts, serving drinks in our bar, preparing tents for new guests, maintenance work on the glamping, help with organizing tours, etc.

    There are a lot of overgrown old walking trails around. It's our goal to bring them back to life. If you don't mind a few scratches, blisters and splinters but are excited about what you can discover around the corner . . Get in touch.

    The work can be intensive but you will have plenty of free time to recover and enjoy ;)

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The glamping site, where volunteers will have their accommodation is a few minutes away from where we live. So most evenings you will be on your own.
    Volunteers either stay in a cozy little caravan or in one of our glamping tents.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are only 1.7 km walking from Virpazar. From there the whole of Montenegro is at your feet (not really), but at least you can get easily to Podgorica and bar by train.

    We don't live where volunteers have their accommodation. So eating together will be more difficult, specially breakfast and dinner you mostly will be on your own. We prefer to pay you to cover all food expenses.
