About Us

We are a UK company that offers tours to natural and cultural monuments around the borders of four Balkan countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Greece and North Macedonia.

 

Our managing director lived in the region for many years, working for an environmental organisation in Prespa and exploring the nooks and crannies that few Englishmen have toured since Byron, Lear and Leigh Fermor.

 

For guides, we use local ecologists. Many of them working in the field as ornithologists and mammologists – monitoring large carnivores, designing management plans for nature reserves or whole conservation projects for species like the Egyptian vulture.

 

Nature's Tracks

some of Europe's rarest 

plants and animals live here 

 

The Iron Curtain is now a Green Belt of nature & traditional ways of life...

And few seem to know about it  Discover Europe's Unexplored Nature 

 

The critically endangered Balkan lynx,

Bears, wolves, chamois, wildcat,

Dalmatian pelicans, Pgymy cormorants, Over 2,500 plants... orchids... irises... 

 

Human tracks

And man has been here for centuries

as five empires have come and gone

 

The methods of farmers, animal breeders

and fishermen are also responsible for the creation and management of the region's beautiful forests, meadows and species.  

 

We bring you together with the locals, national park staff and ecologists, who explain how man and nature live side by side.

 

Your tracks

The Responsible Tourist.  Let local producers guide you around their home.

 

Traditional ways of life are disappearing here too, and rural communities struggle to compete and survive.  

Responsible tourism, with conservation at its heart, can give a secondary income to rural communities and, indirectly, help look after these places.
