Classic Carpathians Adventure 2017

The endlessness of the Carpathian mountain ridges is nowhere so grand as it is in the southern Carpathians… Between Tirgu Jiu in the South, Sibiu in the East, Caransebes in the West and Sebes in the North lie around 10.000 square kilometres of endless mountain ridges, where fairy-tale-like pine forests roam in with striking green pastures, roaring mountain rivers, emerald lakes… It’s simply the perfect 4×4 adventurer’s playground, where you can reach numerous 2000+ m peaks on wheels, enjoy fantastic camping spots, and where every day is a new challenge. Enjoy your Classic Carpathians adventure there!

Offroading in Romania – beginning of the end?

Written by
Aleksandar Veljković

The Romanian Carpathians have been a European top destination for offroad and overland touring in the past decade, especially for tourists from central and eastern Europe. The beauty and wilderness of those mountains became so famous, that merely mentioning the magic word „Carpathians“ or „Romania“ was the selling point, no need to do any further marketing. On top of the beautiful nature and desolation, it offered the people everything that they didn’t have elsewere in the EU countries anymore, and more than anything, it was a possibility for a relaxed exploration and wild camping virtually anywhere outside of the national parks. However, very few people were aware that a law practically forbidding public traffic on forest roads and in the wild had been passed in Romania all the way back in 2007. And nobody knew that simply because Romanian forest authorities never really cared to implement that law. But it looks as if those things are going to change. It’s only a question of time…

Where are we taking you in 2017?

Yes – every new year is a new chance to add meaning to our lives with new adventures in places you haven’t seen before. And we offer to take you to those places, because we know where they are. Every season we explore and discover new ones, so even the tours that seem to be the same in our calendar are never the same as they were last year – every time we make them we try to achieve a higher level of traveller’s bliss, always adding to them something new and different 😎 Take a look at where and how we’ll be taking you in 2017… Nastavite sa čitanjem Where are we taking you in 2017?

2016 – an intense season

Yes, we haven’t found time to mention any of our tours since Homolje Gold Rush this past spring – and there’s been some… 12 or 13 of them inbetween, if we count both the official and unofficial ones. We’ve been in Serbia (all over), Romania and Montenegro, and that won’t be the end of the list. So let’s make just a quick run through the places we’ve visited in 2016. But first…

The video from the Serbian Snow Adventure we owe you. Almost 8 months delayed, but better late than never 🙂 With a bit of luck, the rest of the video material from this season will be processed as the new winter approaches. So here it is, enjoy! 😎

Huh, that was really intense, wasn’t it? And where have we been doing during the spring and summer season?
