Explore the natural beauty of the Balkans
Take a trip with us to villages rarely visited by tourists and the peaks of the Balkan mountains. Enjoy white water rafting on the fast rivers, swimming in the blue seas and lakes and, for those of you who are braver, in waterfalls and mountain lakes. Come skiing, dog sledging, snow shoeing and horse riding, and learn how to cook Balkan food. Led by certified local mountain guides, staying with local hosts who make the most delicious food, Hiking the Balkans is your gateway to an authentic Balkan experience.

Why travel with us?
We are from the Balkans and we have grown up in the places we are taking you to. We know the local markets, the best wineries, restaurants and festivals, we know the mountain terrain, the caves and the secret beaches where few tourists go. We travel in small groups of up to 18 people and we work with local suppliers who genuinely benefit from your visits. We are committed to having a direct long term relationship with everyone who is interested in exploring the Balkans and offer advice for your travels in the region that goes beyond the trips we organise.
