Offroad / overland 4×4 tours in the Balkans

Corona pandemic update

As of the start of June all of the borders of the Balkan countries will be opened unconditionally, and by June 15th most EU countries borders will open too. That means that no further reasons exist for tour cancellations, and the remaining part of our 2020 season will proceed as planned. However, we are aware that some EU governments (like for example the German) have made a decision to exclude the non-EU member countries from being declared as safe for travel. We’re deeply disappointed by that decision, as it is not based on any medical parameters, but is purely political. If you visit the covid-19 worldwide statistics website, you will find out that all of the Balkan countries have had a far lower death toll, as well as infection count than most western European countries. For example, Montenegro, the host of our tour in July, has had only 324 cases and 9 deaths, and is, by the time of writing this update (May 30th 2020) completely covid-19 free (no remaining cases). However, it has not been included in the EU list of safe countries for travel! Therefore, we encourage our customers to respect common sense rather than political decisions of their governments, and to attend the booked tours. But if you decide not to, concerned with the administrative consequences when you get back home, we will respect your decisions and grant you a possibility to reschedule your booking for 2021, or some tour later in 2020. We hope that this irrational measure will be changed by EU governments by the time our summer season is in full motion.


Our mission

Offering the most exquisite wilderness 4×4 offroad / overland expeditional tours in the Balkans.

We want to show you the pure beauty of nature. To give you the privilege to be in places that few have been to before. Places that we’ve discovered during 40 years of continuous, passionate exploration, both on wheels and on foot. That’s our idea of 4×4 overlanding. Let us take you to the last oasis of unrestricted offroad travel. Places out of the modern world, where time stands still and all your worries are left behind.

Unsere 10-tägige Serbientour war top – es gibt wohl niemanden, der mehr geheime Pfade kennt als Alek! Auch immer eine Ausweichroute parat, was man ja manchmal braucht. Serbien ist echt ein tolles Land, kann nur raten, hin zu fahren, solange es noch so urtümlich ist. Haben uns allzeit gut aufgehoben und sicher gefühlt (auch bei diversen Bergemaßnahmen). Würde gern wieder eine Tour mitfahren. Zusätzlich empfehle ich noch dringend kompletten Lackschutz für das ganze Auto!

Beate Botzenhardt, Germany


I met Alek online back in 2010 while prepping for a personal holiday in Serbia. During that holiday, he was so kind to give us an almost “private” reconnaissance tour of the area around the Tara National park, which ultimately led to our visit with Jeep Club Belgium to beautiful Serbia in 2011. Our group of about 15 Jeeps was guided through the most diverse scenic landscapes, we enjoyed local food and expert guidance, and topped the holiday off with a luxury stay in Belgrade. There also, Alek turned out to be a warm and very enjoyable host! In 2012, for a third visit, we discovered the fantastic East-Serbian Danube region … Our friendship is lasting, and I would definitely recommend discovering unknown Serbia through Alek!

Es waren jetzt zwei aufregende, spannende Touren. Um meine Sicherheit hatte ich nie Sorgen, die Landschaft ist traumhaft und der Guide nicht nur kompetent, sondern auch besorgt um das Wohl seiner Gäste. Ich komme wieder!

Martin Zorn, Germany


Die Balkan Wild Track Tour war ein tolles Erlebnis. In drei Länder mit unterschiedlich grandiosen Landschaften konnten wir wilde Schönheit des Balkan erleben.
Nach dem Anfang, wo wir die Wege in Griechenland teilweise noch gesucht haben, begann ein Abenteuer durch Albanien, Mazedonien und Serbien.
Wir haben alles während der Tour gehabt, eine tolle Gruppe, zwei sehr kompetennte und klasse Führer, mediterraner warmer Herbst, Schnee, viel Sonne aber auch Temperaturen unter 0 Grad, Höhen bis 2600 m, teilweise schöne ruhige entspannte und dann wieder sehr extreme Off-Road Strecken. Es war bestimmt für jeden was dabei. Ich werde mich gerne immer wieder an diese Tour erinnern. Es lohnt sich einfach daran teizunehmen.

Norbert Slanina, Germany

My husband and I joined the 2019 Montenegro Highlands Tour, and boy were we happy we did! The landscape was beautiful, the roads were fun, and Alek was super knowledgeable about every aspect of the area including camping spots and alternative roads for the more hard core members of our group.
This was by far the BEST off-road tour we have ever done and literally just booked another tour with Aleksandar. We can’t wait for the next adventure!

Rose & Jens Thomas, Germany


Vielen Dank für die tolle Woche die das Strongbol Team erleben durfte. Hier ist das Land und in Wildnis noch unberührt für viel Spass beim Offroad fahren. Es hat allen viel Spaß gemacht und es war für jeden was dabei von leicht bis extrem.
Das war für uns bestimmt nicht die letzte Tour nach Serbien!

Holger Durst, Germany


I had the pleasure of joining one of Alek’s tours last year and it was great. For me it was the perfect balance between offroad excitement and peaceful moments in nature. I got to see parts of a beautiful country and meet some very nice people. I’m really looking forward to my next tour in August 

Alexandru Mag, Romania



Vorerst liebe Grüsse aus Österreich. Wir sprechen heute noch von dieser eindrucksvollen Tour mit Dir .Alex hat die Route sehr gut gefallen auch hat die Gruppe gut zusammen gepasst, es waren alles sehr gute off-road Fahrer.Mich hat das Schöne unberührte Land beeindruckt.

Margareta & Alex McCool, Austria


Unsere Snow-Adventure-Tour war ein sehr tolles Erlebnis. Die Landschaft und Kultur hat uns sehr fasziniert. Die täglichen Offroadtouren waren Spannung und Action pur!
Alek hat uns bestens durch die Gegend geführt und ist auf unsere besonderen Wünsche eingegangen. Ein rundum gut abgestimmtes Offroaderlebnis, das Lust auf mehr macht!
