Hiking in Serbia

2 min read

With five large national parks, more than 60 nature reserves, 15 nature parks, four mountain ranges, half a dozen raftable rivers, countless canyons and 280 natural monuments, it’s easy to go wild in Serbia. Whether you traipse, trek, mosey or mountaineer, you’ll find a country devoted to adventurous al fresco activities.

Laced with hundreds of kilometres of marked and wild tracks and over 60 strategically placed overnight trail huts, Serbia is a natural for hikers wishing to stretch their legs: popular treks include the Djerdap National Park (home to the rugged Iron Gates gorge, shared with Romania), Fruska Gora near Novi Sad, where an annual 111km ultramarathon is held each April, and the eastern Mt Rtanj, a mysterious 1560m-high pyramid that attracts both New Age pilgrims and old-school trampers. The Dinaric Alps, the Rhodope mountains, the Carpathians and the Balkan range all across the country: the Midzor peak, on the border with Bulgaria, is Serbia’s highest at 2169m, and a favourite of amateur alpinists.
Canyoning is a new sport for Serbia, but ideal locations such as Tresnjica Gorge and Seoski Potok have been millions of years in the making. The 19,175-hectare Tara National Park in Serbia’s west is a favourite all-rounder: with its steep forested slopes, deep ravines and ridiculously rewarding scenic views (not to mention resident bears), there’s an adventure here for everyone.
