Enjoy lush landscapes, pastures, meadows, hills, and the alluring play of wild horses at sunset! Discover the beauty of mountain rivers and clear streams that suddenly transform into untamed waterfalls often above 60 meters high. Climb a smaller peak, or go down a cave, simply for the joy of it. The braver can rappel down a cliff, and the bravest down a river canyon. Meet wild, pristine, exceptional nature. Yes, meet Balkan, the mountain that gave its name to the Balkan peninsula. Welcome to the Balkan mountains, a unique National park!


Tour plan:

Departure from Niš, in front of the hotel at 7:30 AM. We take the highway through the Sićevo gorge to Pirot, and onward to the very heart of the Stara Mountain. We pass through the magnificent villages of Stara and arrive at an authentic Stara village named Dojkinci. Then, we take cross-country vehicles for a 16 km long trip to Arbinje.  The upper part of the Dojkinačka river – known as Arbinje – is regarded as the most beautiful river valley in Serbia. We start the hour-long hike to the Arbinje waterfall. Afterwards, we return by the same path to the cross-country vehicles. Transport to Ponor. Ponor is considered to be one of the most magical places in the entire Nature Park Stara Planina. It is a karst depression without a surface water flow. A tour of Ponor follows, which includes lunch break in nature. We return by jeep just like we arrived, with a tour of the Tupavica waterfall.

Return to Niš in the evening. End of program.
