Four tours (one three times) in four different Balkan countries – Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and Bulgaria.

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!

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.

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.

The last oasis of freedom (part one)

Living in the dream world
Living in the dream world

I’ve always loved to roam the mountains of eastern Serbia, ever since I was a kid. This vast space of mostly uninhabited wilderness is a sanctuary for all the freedom lovers who want to lose all connections with modern civilization and it’s set of rules, to escape absolute surveilance and endless “do’s and dont’s”. Actually, this is one of the few places in Europe where you still have large chunks of land that are completely out of mobile range, so you can really lose the faintest idea what is happening in the outside world. A world war could start, and you might well not realise it before it’s over!

Two new videos in our Youtube channel

Scratching the car is one of the bigger frustrations of overlanders that are newcomers to the Balkans. Instead of the nicely maintained trails in EU offroad parks, they suddenly stumble into true, completely unmaintained wilderness, discovering trails that may have not been driven by anyone for ages. And when a trail is not used, it becomes overgrown by vegetation. So what is my advice for the Balkans rookies? Watch our new video to find out!

Corona pandemic update / December

We have reached the point when nothing is certain anymore. Right now we’re in the midst of toughest lockdowns Europe has seen so far. Travel is technically possible, but strongly discouraged by most governments, threatening quarantine upon returning. Well, actually not every European country has the same approach, so if you intend to travel we suggest that you examine the conditions set by every country that you want to pass through carefully.
