Unfortunately we will have to cancel or reschedule several of our tours due to the lockdown and closed borders throughout Europe because of the corona virus epidemic. Homolje Gold Rush tour has already been cancelled, as well as the May Ancient Trails tour, while the second tour in May, Secret Carpathians, is currently on hold (with a 80% chance to be cancelled too). In case touring becomes possible in June, we may offer to combine the (now reduced) groups for the two Secet Carpathians tours in the June date, as well as shift the participants for the May Ancient Trails tour to the June Ancient Trails tour.
We’ve also offered a replacement date for the Goldrush tour in November, titling it the Indian Summer edition. Those who booked the April tour have either the option to move their booking for November, get a full refund or transfer the booking to some other of our 2020 or 2021 tours.
We will publish more details about how our season will continue as soon as there’s any definite information on when will the border closures be lifted.
Be optimistic and relax, as this can’t last forever!

We’ve completed the video from our premiere 2019 Ancient Trails tour, which took place in June 2019. Lots of rain and mud, struggle with the elements, but also enjoying the incredible scenery of central Serbia. Don’t miss our next Ancient Trails tour in May 2020!
Material from our 2019 season is starting to be added to our gallery – there are two new albums from some very inspiring tours that took place in the wilderness of Serbia in June and July. There is a widespread belief among overlanders that Serbia is the least interesting of the Balkan countries. We’re sure that, looking at these albums, you will get the opposite impression! Serbia has a broad diversity of different landscapes, probably being more diverse than any other of the Balkan countries, and offers fantastic possibilities for wilderness exploration, especially with some, in places quite demanding forest trails. However, if you take on Serbia, you’ll have to be ready to confront vegetation on a daily basis!
Ancient Trails is our brand new tour covering the mountains of central and southwest Serbia, and Secret Carpathians is our by far most popular tour, covering the serbian part of the Carpathians in eastern Serbia, continuing into the awe inspiring Balkan mountain range along the bulgarian border. Pictures speak much louder than words in both cases!
We have just released the photo album and video from our first tour of the season, the Homolje Gold Rush 2019. It was a great tour that was fully booked out, and the participants have enjoyed it very much! It’s one of only two hotel accomodation tours in our yearly calendar.
We managed to produce videos from two more of our 2018 season tours – the one from Iron Gate and The Stone Arches, as well as the video from the last of the Secret Carpathians series, which took place in October and was conducted for customers of 4WD Travel from the Netherlands.
While Iron Gate tour had just a few sunny days and turned out to be the rainiest of the 2018 tours, SC 4WD was conducted in perfect October weather and was perhaps the most enjoyable tour of the season. Take a look what these tours looked like!
Our ability to camp 365 days a year largely depends on the options how to keep our (rooftop or other) tents warm. Well, sleeping bags intended for below -30 temperatures do exist, but freezing your nose and face off if they’re protruding from the sleeping bag isn’t really the perfect idea of nighttime comfort. And being wrapped up in your mummy-bag doesn’t really leave space to do anything but sleep while in the tent. So what are the options of improving tent-life quality in cold places?
We know that most overlanders avoid taking part in organized tours, feeling uncomfortable with a strict timetable and a fixed itinerary that those tours usually mean. They want to have a much more relaxed feeling while on vacation exploring the unknown, with a chance to modify the plan on the move and adapt the tour pace to their likings.
We understand them very well, because those are our preferences too. So when we started organizing tours we thought how it could be done without becoming some kind of a disciplined, military drill, quite common for most tour organizers. And we found a good model. We just don’t conduct our organized tours any differently than when we travel with friends. What does that exactly mean?
