As the avid readers of Charlotte’s VVeb will know, I visited Serbia for the first time last year and was blown away by its beauty, culture, food and drink – everything this website is about! If you aren’t so sure then perhaps consider taking an organised tour and I don’t mean a bus tour… There is a lot more to touring these days than coach trips! For example, Travel the Unknown organise incredible hiking and cycling tours through Serbia’s valleys and gorges. On such a tour you can discover the ghoulish skull tower of Niš, visit a 200 year old water mill, and stop off to rejuvenate your muscles in a Turkish bath.
Plus, you’ll have the chance to experience the cosmopolitan café culture of modern Belgrade and hike through remote regions of Serbia, sampling local wines, brandies, breads, meats and cheeses along the way. While overnight you will stay in small lodges (pensions) and discover true hospitality in a traditional rural homestay.
There are currently two dates set for these tours (22 to 29 April; and, 16 to 23 September); however, if these don’t suit you, contact the company and they will organise a trip to suit your individual needs. And if Serbia doesn’t take your fancy, Travel the Unknown offers lots of other touring experiences!
