It was my first ever trip with Hiking the Balkans, so I had no expectations. I was pleasently surprised by the professionalism, the choice of accommodation, trails and restaurants on this trip.Read more
The combination of hiking and visiting thermal spas and wineries was ideal for an active, yet relaxing holiday.
I am planning to explore the Balkans more and I would definitely go with Hiking the Balkans again, they have good local knowledge of all Balkan countries, great contacts and are very good at recommending the best spots off the beaten track.

I had been to Skopje once before, where I looked at Mt Vodno and dreamt of doing a trail run up it. Fortunately, Hiking the Balkans managed to get me in touch with Dean, a fantastic running guide who showed me all types of cool paths on the mountain. Dean’s pace and fitness levels were great: we covered 21km and almost 1000m uphill in under three hours (excluding breaks). The views were great and Dean told me lots of fascinating things about the mountain and about Macedonia itself. I’ll definitely be in touch next time I’m in Macedonia and have time for a trail running expeditionRead more

Founded by Maja Trajkovska, they specialize in outdoor experiences in the Balkans for active travelers.
What Makes Them Stand Out?
A passion project run by locals of the Balkans. All tours are hiking focused and imbued with a local spirit. Their guides all have interesting backgrounds and specialities, and trips are carefully cultivated to showcase the best of the Balkans and hidden gems. They are committed to responsible travel and incorporate this into each and every hike.
Who Travels With Them?
Their tours are specifically geared toward active outdoor travelers, looking for an adventurous experience. They are very focused in providing a unique local experience among mountain regions, so you won’t hit many tourist spots. If you’re worried about physical level, their hikes are suitable to most travelers, and there are many different trips to choose from.
Where Do They Operate?
The Balkans covers several countries, including Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, and Greece. Their tours operate in all these countries, with a focus in national parks and other specialized outdoor destinations.
Why Travel With Them?
If you’re looking for a unique outdoor experience among nature, led by locals, and with a culturally immersive touch, this is the perfect tour company for you. You’ll stay and spend time in remote mountain villages, and learn about the country from a uniquely qualified perspective. This is not the ideal company to travel with if you’re seeking a more traditional tour, visiting famous sites and cities. However if an active outdoor trip is appealing, they’d be a great place to start.
