Lost world of eastern Serbia – video

Better late than never – we’ve finally produced the video from the fantastic tour we’ve guided for Lost World Adventures in July / August 2016. The participants were truly overwhelmed, and we believe eastern Serbia just doesn’t get any better than that. Take a look at this great video…

and, of course, take a look at the photo album with more than 250 selected images from 10 days of this tour.

Discovering wild Balkans

Written by:
Aleksandar Veljković

 

When mountains in the central part of the Balkans start having freezing temperatures at night in the autumn, it’s time to head south, to the warm, meditteranean part of the peninsula. That is exactly what we do every year in the Balkans Wild Tracks tour. This is the adventure we’ve experienced between October 20th and November 5th in Greece, Albania, Macedonia and Serbia.

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! 😎

Serbian Snow Adventure

Serbia, not Siberia… But there’s not much difference!

When the wind starts howling, wave after wave of snow blizzards encase the Kučaj mountains in white, everyone flees them as fast as possible, knowing that they can be stranded there until springtime. Everyone, except us. That is when we buckle up our snow chains, pack up our winter recovery gear, and engage on the snowdrift surfing tour through that vast kingdom of the wolves… And when we conquer Kučaj winterscapes, it’s time to move over to western Serbia, for a whole different flavour of snow adventure! And inbetween our daily ice games, we’ll bask in the warm thermal pools and enjoy the spicy Serbian cuisine. There’s no better way to experience the Balkan winter!

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.

Kučajsko zimsko izviđanje

(local event)

Zima ove godine dolazi i odlazi, menjajući izgled naših planina svako malo. Vikend pre velike zimske ture Rustika Travel-a odlazimo u izvidnicu po Kučajskim planinama, ne bismo li proverili količinu snega i generalno stanje terena i staza, kako bismo preciznije isplanirali kretanje na turi koja će biti nedelju dana kasnije. Dobri poznavaoci znaju da je svako 4×4 špartanje tim najvećim nenaseljenim prostranstvom Srbije prava avantura, i da obećava nezaboravne doživljaje i zanimljiva otkrića. Pridružite nam se da istražujemo Kučaj u januaru zajedno!

Još nije izvesno da li ćemo ovu skauting turu započeti u subotu ili nedelju, kao i kada ćemo je tačno okončati (ponedeljak, možda utorak). Što se tiče spavanja, najverovatnije ćemo za konak odabrati Sisevac (sajt http://sisevac.rs/), gde imaju odličan smeštaj i jedan spoljni termalni bazen (molimo da sami rezervišete ako biste nam se pridružili, a nama samo javite da dolazite, da se dogovorimo o mestu i vremenu okupljanja).

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.
