Land Rover club Slovenia discovering Serbian Carpathians

Photo album from the eastern Serbian tour of Land Rover club Slovenia lasting for 4 days + one video revealing a great little 4×4 river trail from the tour.

Otvaranje kamp sezone 2017

(local event for Serbianoutdoor 4×4 members and friends – announcement in Serbian)

Kako smo to već uobičajili, prvi sunčani vikend proleća iskoristićemo da našu malu družinu okupimo na nekom skrovitom mestu duboko u šumi za dva dana opuštenog, apsolutno hedonističkog druženja.

U tim našim okupljanjima nije poenta u vožnji, i u načelu vrlo malo vozimo, iako je ponekad potrebno uložiti solidan napor i tehničko umeće da bismo do svog šumskog skrovišta uopšte mogli da stignemo. Fokus je na uživanju u prirodi pored logorske vatre, a društvo raspoloženo za pripremanje raznoraznih đakonija to obično pretvori u pravu gastronomsku feštu. Pogledajte kako je to izgledalo prošlog proleća na Tisnici (kliknite na fotografiju da otvorite putopis u novom prozoru):

Plan je da se u kasno popodne i predvečerje u petak, 24. marta okupimo na našem supertajnom mestu duboko u Homoljskim šumama i postavimo logor sa prvim mrakom (neki od nas će stići malo ranije, kako bismo blagovremeno pripremili zalihu drva za prvo veče – lokacija obiluje drvima za vatru). Učesnici će dobiti koordinate logora i GPS trek kako do njega da stignu iz dva različita smera.

Evo fotografija lokaliteta kada smo prošli put tamo kampovali, da malo osetite atmosferu…

U subotu i nedelju ćemo uživati u raskošnoj prirodi Homolja, istražujući unaokolo na razne načine, a nije isključeno i da ćemo nekog od tih dana upriličiti i neku 4×4 vožnju po okruženju, kako bismo eventualno otkrili još neku novu, zanimljivu stazu (mada u tom kraju slabo ima nečega što nismo već prošli). Obe noći ćemo logorovati na istom mestu.

Broj mesta je ograničen, a prednost imaju prijatelji koje već dobro poznajemo. Ako vidite sebe u ovoj našoj opuštenoj priči i ako smatrate da bismo se lepo družili, javite se na serb4x4nomad@gmail.com .

Napomena: ovo druženje organizujemo ISKLJUČIVO ukoliko vremenska prognoza za taj vikend ostane nedvosmisleno povoljna. U protivnom ga odlažemo do daljnjeg.

Tisnica – our secret oasis

Written by

What is owning a 4×4 vehicle all about? Offroad racing? Certainly not (at least not for us). The purpose of having an offroader is, in my opinion, in being able to reach some remote, hardly accessible places deep in the wild, where you’re certain that nobody would bother you in a million years, and enjoy them with your friends. And the confluence of Perast and Tisnica rivers at the border of Kučaj and Homolje mountains in eastern Serbia, is one of such places. A real heaven on earth, a hideout for those who know how to get there.

Homolje Gold Rush 2016

Written by
Aleksandar Veljković

After the experience with the “winter tour” in April last year we wanted the beginning of the springtime season of Rustika Travel tours to be a true springtime event, with minimum risk of snow, and lots of mud and a chance to watch the nature sprouting and waking up after the winter sleep. So we decided to make it in the lower mountains of northeast Serbia, where the risk of late winter conditions wasn’t so great like in the higher mountains. And it turned out we managed to hit the point – the tour was a 100% success! 😎

Homolje Gold Rush

Early springtime mud fun in the mystical eastern Serbia

The Homolje mountains are a place where green pastures and rich forests on steep slopes were home for shepperds for centuries. And the hidden valleys, like a maze well tucked away from civilization, inspired people to resort to magic and sourcery, so it’s full of legends. But one of the strongest local traditions is that of gold panning in the rivers! So the locals will teach us that art, in the midst of touring caves of breathtaking beauty (also known as places of hidden gold), and conquering demanding offroad trails that surpass everything that you can expect in those, seemingly tame and pastoral hills. Embark on a unique early springtime 4×4 adventure!

Homolje rivertrail fun

Homolje mountains aren’t tall – they hardly exceed 1000 m at their highest point, but they’re a fantastic 4×4 playground of interconnected ridges with steep sides and numerous smaller and bigger stream and river valleys, ideal for exploring and searching creative ways to reach places. Springtime stretches a carpet of flowery meadows over Homolje, and early springtime such as the beginning of March (technically still winter) gives a rare opportunity to experience mud challenges while the higher mountains are still under a thick snow cover. This was one of such early springtime ventures into the wonders of Homolje.

Zdravča – Homoljski vikend

(local club’s offroad event)

Proleće se lagano primiče, ali ove blage zime u Homolju već vladaju prolećni uslovi, tako da možemo nesmetano istraživati nove puteljke. Dogovorili smo se da predstojećeg vikenda krenemo ka Zdravči kao krajnjem cilju, tražeći neki pristup kojim još nismo prošli.

Homoljsko-Kučajske zimske čarolije

Tokom januara 2016. godine smo na Homoljsko-Kučajskom području bili vrlo aktivni, dokazavši u više navrata da nadaleko čuveni Kučajski smetovi ne moraju biti prepreka za prolaz preko ovog prostranstva impozantne divljine istočne Srbije. 10. januara smo, u saradnji sa prijateljima iz kluba Resava 4×4 i etno domaćinstvom Milanović iz Lipovice u konvoju od 13 terenaca uspeli u osvajanju Beljanice, iako dubina snega na prilazima vrhu nije bila nimalo naivna.

First winter scouting of Kučaj and Homolje

Winter has come a bit early this year. Kučaj and other higher mountains of eastern Serbia have seen their fair share or snowflakes before December even began. So we set out to carve our way through virgin snow. This is what we’ve experienced.
