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.
I always enjoy watching the enthusiasm and passion that goes into a new business venture to drive it forward and this was obvious from the organisation, service and the level of planning that went into the trip, great few days and great to see a lot of Macedonia, history and culture 🙂 thanks again!
It has been a great weekend! Lea is a fantastic host, making you feel part of Macedonian culture and life in all the aspects. We could have not have a had a better guide! Cannot wait to visit the Balkans again with lea and her crew 🙂
I’ve been on three trips to the Balkans and will go on a fourth in a few months. Each time was a fantastic experience with great people in amazing locations, guided by locals passionate about their country and its nature. One highlight of our last trip was being served coffee and AMAZING home-made bread and cheese by Albanian seasonal farmers on a forlorn foggy mountainside.
Thank you Maya and Leah for making it happen. I have connected with all of you, amazing beautiful people. My highlights were hot outdoor spa when its -20C outside! Our conversations in the lobby after skiing. The amazing new year’s eve party.The karaoke in the bus! Trying skiing ! Happy 2015 everyone. Look forward to more LEC trips.
