Two new photo albums from Serbian tours

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!


And, if you’re unpatient to see it, direct link to the Secret Carpathians 2019 video!

Two more videos of the 2018 season

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!

Secret Carpathians / BWT 2017 videos

We completed our 2017 tour video production by releasing videos from two of the biggest overland adventures that we have conducted so far.

The first one was known as the South Serbian Nomad’s Adventure tour, and it was really memorable in July 2017. But only now have we found the time to process the video material and make a proper video out of it. It is, essentially, the tour which evolved into the Secret Carpathians, that we have in our calendar for 2018.

Our 2018 offroad tour calendar

*UPDATED – take a look at the 2019 season tours!*

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!
