Following the immense success of our first small group adventure in Serbia, we caught up with the man behind the magic – Aleks, our adventure travel guide with a wealth of experience in Serbia’s outback and the newest member of the team. Born in Belgrade and raised in the mountains, Aleks’s passion for Serbia is

 Bosnia and Herzegovina is a fascinating place, one nobody is more passionate about than Skender, our local tour guide, who you may remember if you read our blog on Bosnian coffee culture. Skender has witnessed Bosnia’s many twists and turns growing up and he’s determined to showcase all of the natural beauty and melting pot

International Women’s Day is HUGE in the Balkans. It’s traditional for children to give roses to their female teachers as a token of their appreciation, while women swap messages of love and appreciation for each other.

The Balkans can be a bit behind when it comes to sustainability. For instance, you’ll see single-use plastic bags being handed out willy-nilly in Serbia or Montenegro, and a lack of understanding around how human activities can impact wildlife (ATV tours in protected areas are still not illegal here). Without coming across all preachy, it’s
