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.
Aufgrund des großen Interesses haben wir einen zusätzlichen Termin für unsere Indian Summer Tour durch die serbischen Karpaten eingeführt! So gibt es im Oktober wieder die Möglichkeit eine Hoteltour zu buchen – https://www.rustikatravel.com/de/secret-carpathians/
Bei den Wildcampingtouren im gleichen Gebiet im Juni und August haben wir noch freie Plätze. Während die Hoteltouren 6 Tage dauern, zeigen Ihnen die Campingtouren 10 Tage lang ein viel größeres Gebiet und besuchen auch einige tiefe Wildnisgebiete, in denen es keine Hotels gibt (die also nur bei Wildcampingtouren besucht werden können).
We have just updated the photo album section of our website by publishing 4 new galleries with selected images from season 2021 tours. Although a short season (which started as late as July) consisting of only 6 tours, if was a feast of some great people in great places, and thousands of great images, which wasn’t easy to filter out leaving just some of them. Four tours (one three times) in four different Balkan countries – Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and Bulgaria.
We have reached the point when nothing is certain anymore. Right now we’re in the midst of toughest lockdowns Europe has seen so far. Travel is technically possible, but strongly discouraged by most governments, threatening quarantine upon returning. Well, actually not every European country has the same approach, so if you intend to travel we suggest that you examine the conditions set by every country that you want to pass through carefully.

We’ve completed the video from our premiere 2019 Ancient Trails tour, which took place in June 2019. Lots of rain and mud, struggle with the elements, but also enjoying the incredible scenery of central Serbia. Don’t miss our next Ancient Trails tour in May 2020!
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!
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!
We’ve uploaded the photo album with three of the 2018 Secret Carpathians tours – July, September and October. It’s our way of introducing the magnificent landscape of the Serbian Carpathian mountains to the world – a tour that should not be missed by any wilderness admirer. Take a look!
