We are pleased to present to you an innovative idea that will make hiking even more accessible and exciting. We are ready to change the way we organize hiking tours and allow you to enjoy them in a completely new way! Our idea is simple - we organize hiking tours using private vehicles, where participants will share the travel costs according to the departure location. Whether you are starting from Belgrade or Novi Sad, this option allows you to reduce transportation costs and enjoy socializing. Best of all, the price of the hiking tour will be separated from the transportation costs, allowing you to adjust your budget and choose the tours that appeal to you the most. This concept enables you to explore different mountain peaks, landscapes, and trails according to your interests and abilities.
WHAT ARE WE PLANNING?
Once, after climbing Šiljak, we had Rtanjski tea and wished to do it again and again. We would repeat the fascinating Lazarev Canyon, get lost in the blue of Grza, and conquer Soko Grad again in the evening. For those who have been and would do it again, for all of you who have not yet been but have asked so many times, we would gladly repeat this adventure. And we will.

WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?
20.01.2024. NOVI SAD - BELGRADE – LAZAREV CANYON – SOKOBANJA
ROUTE LENGTH: 10km ELEVATION GAIN: 400m DIFFICULTY: MODERATE
Departure from NOVI SAD and BELGRADE in the early morning.
In the early morning, we will arrive at Lazareva Cave, from where we start the exploration of LAZAREV CANYON. One of the most secluded and wonderful attractions in Serbia, unfairly neglected, carelessly tucked away, so far decently preserved secret. Quite unexplored from the inside, mystical and almost unattainable, something closest to a jungle in Serbia.
The tour starts by entering the canyon near Lazareva Cave and climbing to one of the many, and according to many, the most beautiful viewpoint, KOVEJ. There, we have the opportunity to enjoy a magnificent view, with the possibility of lunch in a restaurant. After refreshment, we return to the starting point.
Next is the journey and accommodation in SOKOBANJA. This spa town with famous thermo-mineral springs today has about 8,000 inhabitants and became famous during the rule of Miloš Obrenović.
21.01.2024. SOKOBANJA – RTANJ – ASCENT TO ŠILJAK – VRELO GRZE – BELGRADE – NOVI SAD
ROUTE LENGTH: 15km ELEVATION GAIN: 1000m DIFFICULTY: DEMANDING
In the morning, we will pack our things and head to the village of RTANJ. It's time for a challenge...
We start the standard ascent FROM THE SOUTH SIDE of the mountain. It's a constant climb to the top of ŠILJAK, initially passing through wooded areas, and then open space, meadows, and karst, without a single spring on the way.
After conquering the famous Rtanj pyramid and taking a break, we will use the same path for the return, so a descent awaits us. When we descend back to the village, we might have the opportunity to refresh ourselves with a warm cup of Rtanj's magical tea that brings you back to life.
We also expect another stop near the fantastic VRELO GRZE, with the opportunity for a short walk to admire this natural phenomenon. After that, a dinner break, and then all that remains is to return to the starting points in Belgrade and Novi Sad, which will be in the late evening.
