New photo gallery added

We have just added the photo gallery from the two Homolje Goldrush 2022 tours, which took place between April 10th and 23rd 2022. Just like we always expect from April, we’ve had sun and rain, even snow, so all driving conditions were present in the tour, occasionally putting the participants before challenging tasks in the golden mountains of eastern Serbia. We also visited the Majdanpek goldmine, as well as Todor’s river, where we were demonstrated the ancient art of gold prospecting.

You can take a look at the 120 images selected for the photo album here.

Neuer Termin für Geheimnis der Karpaten Tour

Aufgrund des großen Interesses haben wir einen zusätzlichen Termin für unsere Indian Summer Tour durch die serbischen Karpaten eingeführt! So gibt es im Oktober wieder die Möglichkeit eine Hoteltour zu buchen – https://www.rustikatravel.com/de/secret-carpathians/

Bei den Wildcampingtouren im gleichen Gebiet im Juni und August haben wir noch freie Plätze. Während die Hoteltouren 6 Tage dauern, zeigen Ihnen die Campingtouren 10 Tage lang ein viel größeres Gebiet und besuchen auch einige tiefe Wildnisgebiete, in denen es keine Hotels gibt (die also nur bei Wildcampingtouren besucht werden können).

New videos on our YouTube channel

Winter is always a time of intense activity when it comes to writing and producing multimedia material from previous season, so this one is no exception. In the past month we’ve made several attractive videos, of which probably the one that will draw most attention is the Albanian Wild Tracks 2021 video:

4 new photo galleries added

We have just updated the photo album section of our website by publishing 4 new galleries with selected images from season 2021 tours. Although a short season (which started as late as July) consisting of only 6 tours, if was a feast of some great people in great places, and thousands of great images, which wasn’t easy to filter out leaving just some of them. Four tours (one three times) in four different Balkan countries – Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and Bulgaria.

Rush to the photo album section and take a peek!

Balkan Offroad Touren in 2022

(click here for English)

Nach einer eineinhalbjährigen Unterbrechung unserer Offroad Touren wurden unsere Touren im Juli 2021 endlich wieder aufgenommen. Wir hatten einen wirklich wundervollen zweiten Teil des Jahres – viele Touren, viele glückliche Menschen, tolles Wetter und unvergessliche Erinnerungen an einige fantastische Orte. Der Balkan ist immer noch die letzte verbliebene echte Wildnis in Europa, eine aufregende, dynamische Landschaft, die es zu erkunden gilt und Ihnen die wahre Freiheit bietet, überall hinzugehen und in der Wildnis zu campen. Also lieber genießen, solange es dauert!

After an interruption in our offroad tours that lasted for a year and a half, in July 2021 our tours finally resumed.

The Balkans is still the last remaining true wilderness in Europe, an exciting, dynamic landscape to explore, offering you true freedom to go anywhere and camp in the wild. So better enjoy it while it lasts!

My nomadic life – how I decided to leave the ordinary world behind?

Many people fantasize about leaving urban life and the ever more controlled society behind to conquer their personal freedom by starting an off-grid life, but very few actually have the courage to try. You don’t really have to be radical about it, you can determine according to your preferences how much of “civilization” you will let remain in your life. Here is how I started.

How much are offroad vehicles REALLY polluting?

Offroad vehicles are banned from most protected areas in the world because of their alleged environmental impact. But how much are they really polluting? Is it just an overreaction of the environmentalists, or should we really be concerned about it? Since no scientific study has ever been conducted to measure the real impact of offroad vehicles on the wilderness (extra-urban areas), I had to conduct the measurements myself. I’m sure the environmentalists won’t like what I’ve measured, because it doesn’t help defend their claims at all. But I do hope that it will help reach a more balanced and less car-hating attitude of the general public.
