Balkans Snow Trails 2018 photo album & video

The photo album from the Balkans Snow Trails 2018 tour – actually, just as much mud as snow, but it added to the diversity of it.

Take a look how we’ve played around in the snow of Beljanica mountain during January 2018 while preparing the trails for our Balkans Snow Trails tour – we’ve just put the video on-line:

Our 2018 offroad tour calendar

*UPDATED*

Keep up the good things and improve them – that is exactly what happened to our offroad tour offerings, which have made the Balkans an instant bestseller in the overland travel market several years ago.
