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 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!

A 4×4 journey along the Danube, the cradle of Europe
It was the Iron Gate gorge on the banks of the mighty Danube river where Lepenski Vir civilization sprouted 7000 years ago. In the meantime many have passed through those jungles, making a living from the big river, and building trade routes along it. During the demanding offroading tours some of our guests called this biggest continous forest in Serbia “Serbian Amazon jungle”. No wonder – passing along it is very similar to an exotic jungle adventure! Rocks protruding high above the Danube offer some amazing scenic points, and wandering inland reveals hidden river valleys, canyons, caves and waterfalls. And of course, the famous stone arches of eastern Serbia!
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.
This is where you start with your Carpathians discovery
The endlessness of the Carpathian mountain ridges is nowhere so grand as it is in the southern Carpathians… Between Tirgu Jiu in the South, Sibiu in the East, Caransebes in the West and Sebes in the North lie around 10.000 square kilometres of endless mountain ridges, where fairy-tale-like pine forests roam in with striking green pastures, roaring mountain rivers, emerald lakes… It’s simply the perfect 4×4 adventurer’s playground, where you can reach numerous 2000+ m peaks on wheels, enjoy fantastic camping spots, and where every day is a new challenge. Enjoy your Classic Carpathians adventure there!
A journey of discovering the deepest secrets of Romanian forests
The south Carpathians are a classic, but if you’ve already seen them, you’ll want something different. And western Carpathians are different indeed. There you don’t get the endless 2000+ m ridge journeys, but instead you dive into the enchanting, rich forests, that hold a lot of mystery, surprises and serious offroad challenges, making it a daily randezvous with the unknown. From the forests, rivers and waterfalls of Cheile-Nerei national park and Anina mountains in the south, to the enchanting rocky peaks and caves of divine beauty in the Apuseni nature park. Western Carpathians are the hidden gem of Romania, waiting to be revealed!
What is owning a 4×4 vehicle all about? Offroad racing? Certainly not (at least not for us). The purpose of having an offroader is, in my opinion, in being able to reach some remote, hardly accessible places deep in the wild, where you’re certain that nobody would bother you in a million years, and enjoy them with your friends. And the confluence of Perast and Tisnica rivers at the border of Kučaj and Homolje mountains in eastern Serbia, is one of such places. A real heaven on earth, a hideout for those who know how to get there.
