Tisnica – our secret oasis

Written by
Aleksandar Veljković

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

Written by

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.

Homoljska „zlatna groznica“ 2012

Nadomak Stola prvog dana

Retko koji deo Srbije zrači takvim mirom, a vaša čula u isto vreme obasipa pravim vatrometom senzacija kako to čine Homoljske planine. Naročito u proleće, kada se priroda budi i kada u igri bezbrojnih planinskih potočića i mirisima cvetnih livada možete potpuno da zaustavite vreme. Teško je opredeliti se šta je ono najlepše u Homolju – nepregledne, sačuvane šume iz kojih samo što ne izmile patuljci, stenoviti odseci njihovih vrhova sa kojih ćete pogledom upijati daljine bez želje da odatle odete, doline sa najzelenijom travom na svetu, tajne njegovog podzemnog sveta, vlaška kultura prožeta magijskim ritualima i legendama, tradicija ispiranja zlata na zlatonosnim pritokama Peka ili sve to zajedno. I što je najlepše – sve je to autentično i nekomercijalizovano. Turistički biznis  još uvek nije stigao dotle i niko vam neće određivati kuda smete da idete ili opterećivati viškom pravila i restrikcija – možete u miru istraživati i diviti se netaknutoj prirodi i jednom autentičnom, zaboravljenom načinu života unedogled.
