About Undiscovered Montenegro
Undiscovered Montenegro is a UK-registered adventure travel company founded in 2008 by British husband and wife team and Montenegro residents, Emma and Ben Heywood.
Between us, we have travelled to over 50 countries worldwide. We like to think that when it comes to taking the road less travelled in search of untouched, natural beauty, we’re hard to impress – so when we first saw Montenegro – and Lake Skadar in particular (a place we later made our home) – our immediate impression was disbelief that such epic, African-style natural beauty had been hiding on our own doorstep in Europe.
From that moment, came our inspiration to bring a taste of safari to one of Europe’s wildest countries. We started in 2008 by renovating our own property – Villa Miela – to become our ‘Activity Base’ for week-long hosted holidays at Lake Skadar with guided adventures like hiking and kayaking. And we've since branched out to cover more of this incredible country and even into neighbouring Albania with the help of our small team of expert guides, some of the best company you could hope to keep and with unrivalled knowledge and passion for the lesser-known gems.
Living as locals with our growing young family, we have been committed from the beginning to bringing a responsible, sustainable approach to tourism to Montenegro’s national parks. Our small group activity and nature holidays are high impact in experience but low impact on the environment – and also, crucially, are designed to give back to local people and wildlife. Undiscovered Montenegro actively supports local pelican and nature conservation, environmental action and community regeneration, so when clients choose us, they're giving back to Montenegro too.
