Homolje Gold Rush 2016

Written by
Aleksandar Veljković

After the experience with the “winter tour” in April last year we wanted the beginning of the springtime season of Rustika Travel tours to be a true springtime event, with minimum risk of snow, and lots of mud and a chance to watch the nature sprouting and waking up after the winter sleep. So we decided to make it in the lower mountains of northeast Serbia, where the risk of late winter conditions wasn’t so great like in the higher mountains. And it turned out we managed to hit the point – the tour was a 100% success! 😎

Homolje Gold Rush

Early springtime mud fun in the mystical eastern Serbia

The Homolje mountains are a place where green pastures and rich forests on steep slopes were home for shepperds for centuries. And the hidden valleys, like a maze well tucked away from civilization, inspired people to resort to magic and sourcery, so it’s full of legends. But one of the strongest local traditions is that of gold panning in the rivers! So the locals will teach us that art, in the midst of touring caves of breathtaking beauty (also known as places of hidden gold), and conquering demanding offroad trails that surpass everything that you can expect in those, seemingly tame and pastoral hills. Embark on a unique early springtime 4×4 adventure!

Our February 4×4 adventures

This February has been a very active month for us. First we’ve (in cooperation with Rustika Travel) successfully conducted Serbian Snow Adventure, and a week later visited our friends from Jeep Club Romania (AJCR) who celebrated their 4th anniversary in Baia de Fier in the Carpathians, from February 12th to 14th.

Serbian Snow Adventure

Serbia, not Siberia… But there’s not much difference!

When the wind starts howling, wave after wave of snow blizzards encase the Kučaj mountains in white, everyone flees them as fast as possible, knowing that they can be stranded there until springtime. Everyone, except us. That is when we buckle up our snow chains, pack up our winter recovery gear, and engage on the snowdrift surfing tour through that vast kingdom of the wolves… And when we conquer Kučaj winterscapes, it’s time to move over to western Serbia, for a whole different flavour of snow adventure! And inbetween our daily ice games, we’ll bask in the warm thermal pools and enjoy the spicy Serbian cuisine. There’s no better way to experience the Balkan winter!

Homoljsko-Kučajske zimske čarolije

Tokom januara 2016. godine smo na Homoljsko-Kučajskom području bili vrlo aktivni, dokazavši u više navrata da nadaleko čuveni Kučajski smetovi ne moraju biti prepreka za prolaz preko ovog prostranstva impozantne divljine istočne Srbije. 10. januara smo, u saradnji sa prijateljima iz kluba Resava 4×4 i etno domaćinstvom Milanović iz Lipovice u konvoju od 13 terenaca uspeli u osvajanju Beljanice, iako dubina snega na prilazima vrhu nije bila nimalo naivna.

Kamenovo i Beljanica – prvo zimsko okupljanje u Homolju

(local event in Eastern Serbia)

Poštovani prijatelji,

Pozivamo vas za vikend 9. i 10. januara na prvo zimsko 4×4 okupljanje na prostorima Homolja.

9. januara ćemo se, na poziv našeg domaćina Peke, družiti na poligonu u Kamenovu, na prvom dešavanju kojim naši prijatelji žele da afirmišu turistički pristup ofroudu, bez vozila sa drastičnim modifikacijama i sportskih ambicija. Da ne dužim, na kraju ove najave nalazi se Pekin poziv u celosti.

Drugog dana vikenda pokušaćemo ofroud osvajanje Beljanice – da li ćemo u tome uspeti i koliko će to biti teško ili lako, zavisiće od količine snega koja nas dočeka. U svakom slučaju, zabava je zagarantovana! 🙂

Za smeštaj u noći između subote i nedelje preporučujemo Etno kuću Milanović u Lipovici. Polupansion košta 1500 dinara, a verujemo da su mnogi od vas već imali prilike da se uvere u gostoprimstvo Milanovića.

S obzirom da je u pitanju neformalno okupljanje članova i prijatelja 4×4 sekcije kluba, ne vodimo preciznu evidenciju zainteresovanih niti posredujemo u organizaciji smeštaja, zato sve rezervacije, kako one za prvi dan na poligonu u Kamenovu, tako i rezervaciju smeštaja za noć subotu na nedelju, učesnici vrše sami. Preporučujemo da se što pre javite Milanovićima, zbog ograničenih smeštajnih kapaciteta. Nama je dovoljno da pustite jedan mejl ili zvrcnete na 064 1159852, čisto da bismo znali da vas očekujemo na ovom lepom Homoljskom vikendu! 🙂

Evo kako je to izgledalo u jednoj od sličnih prilika ranije

Nomadic journey of south Serbia

Serbia is sort of a newcomer to the European adventure travel market – having fewer mountains higher than 2000 m than the surrounding countries, it was always regarded as less attractive and less wild by enthusiasts. But is it really so?

South Serbian Nomad’s Adventure

Building on the success of Eastern Serbian Nomad’s Adventure, we take the journey further south. Stara planina left the participants in true overlander’s extasy – the sheer beauty of the mountain, the rich experience of the landscapes, combined with demanding trails, make you crave to return! So we’re starting our south Serbian journey from there. Southeast Serbia is the home to all the highest Serbian mountains, giving you the opportunity to float on endless grassy ridges. The kind of landscape typical for Stara planina goes on for an entire week in this tour, revealing to the participants mountains such as Ruj, Vardenik, Suva, Besna Kobila and Dukat.

More details about the event (and the registration form) you can find in the official announcement page – http://www.rustikatravel.com/4×4/scheduled/south-serbian/
