Take a look how we’ve played around in the snow of Beljanica mountain during January 2018 while preparing the trails for our Balkans Snow Trails tour – we’ve just put the video on-line:

Our 2018 offroad tour calendar

*UPDATED*

Keep up the good things and improve them – that is exactly what happened to our offroad tour offerings, which have made the Balkans an instant bestseller in the overland travel market several years ago. The 2018 tour portfolio is derived from the 2017 tours, but every one of them has been further improved, as we think there’s always a way to get closer to perfection. Lets look into the details.

Montenegro Highlands video

The Montenegro Highlands is definitely one of the most breathtaking overlanding tours in Europe – nowhere can you find so much natural beauty and unspoiled high altitude wilderness in such a small area than there.  And our tour covers the very best of Montenegrian landscape in 10 days. Take a look what it was like last September!

Best of 2017 album published

It’s never easy to recapitulate a fantastic overlanding season in pictures, but 2017 was particularly hard – of more than 1000 extraordinary shots in the first pick, we barely managed to decide which ones to discard in order to leave only 250 of the very best.

Self-organized or guided tour?

IT technology has given many people the means to explore hidden and obscured parts of the world and to do individual tour planning without the help of commercial tour guides. Google Maps are a great tool for getting an insight into topography not covered by official roadmaps, but if you think you can plan a tour only based on what you see in Google maps coupled with the tracks that can be downloaded from the free GPS data portals like Wikiloc, you’re in for some nasty surprises. And should be well prepared for changing your plan often while you’re on the move. Continue reading Self-organized or guided tour?
