New photo gallery added

We have just added the photo gallery from the two Homolje Goldrush 2022 tours, which took place between April 10th and 23rd 2022. Just like we always expect from April, we’ve had sun and rain, even snow, so all driving conditions were present in the tour, occasionally putting the participants before challenging tasks in the golden mountains of eastern Serbia. We also visited the Majdanpek goldmine, as well as Todor’s river, where we were demonstrated the ancient art of gold prospecting.

You can take a look at the 120 images selected for the photo album here.

Winter is always a time of intense activity when it comes to writing and producing multimedia material from previous season, so this one is no exception. In the past month we’ve made several attractive videos, of which probably the one that will draw most attention is the Albanian Wild Tracks 2021 video:

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!

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!
