Daily itinerary

Day 1: Pick up and arrival

You will be picked up from the airport and driven to your first accommodation at an altitude of almost 1,100 meters. It goes straight to the Povlen Mountains, an eastern part of the Dinaric Alps. The drive to the village of Taor - a settlement that has existed since the Bronze Age - takes about two and a half hours and upon arrival a warm dinner awaits you. Afterward, there is plenty of time to familiarize yourself with the surroundings and your four-legged companions.

Day 2: Taor - Divčibare

After breakfast, you drive to Divcibare which is currently a famous ski area. Maljen belongs to the Ore Mountains and belongs to the Dinaric mountain system in northwest Serbia. It is characterized by a specific relief that allows favorable climatic properties, as well as diverse and specific flora and fauna. Divčibare is located in the central part of Maljen. The heights that surround Divčibare protect them from the winds and also offer a view of parts of the Maljen massif as well as the near and far surroundings. The highest peak of Maljen is Kraljev Stol with 1103 meters.

Two parts are divided by the height of the Guard of Divčibare: Divčibare in the strict sense and Pitomine. This hill got its name during the Austrian rule in northern Serbia from 1718 to 1739. At that time the border between Austria and Turkey ran there, and there was the Austrian border guard. The guard consisted of bandits and residents of the surrounding villages (mostly from the village of Krčmara). From this hill, you can see the entire Divcibare field, other heights of Maljen, a range of mountains, and the city of Valjevo.

Valjevo Mountains: Medvednik, Jablanik, Povlen, and Maljen belong to the Ore Mountains and are the last massifs of the Dinaric Mountains in northwest Serbia. The crown of these mountains is characterized by the fact that, except for Maljen, they are closely linked. Although it is often mentioned that Divčibare is a mountain, it is a field on the Maljen mountain, which, due to its specific reliefs and geographical location, is considered a separate tourist unit and as such is presented to all interested tourists who want to this is an interesting destination to visit and enjoy all of its advantages.

Day 3: Divčibare - Rajac

Today, the road leads you through the Serbian steppe, which is reminiscent of Mongolia. The power of this steppe leaves no one indifferent and the 360-degree view gives you a feeling of space and freedom of movement. On your tour today, you will hardly see any houses, and it often happens that you do not see anyone except the climber. Silence, space, a view as far as the eye can see, horses, harmony, etc. In the afternoon, you will reach Mount Rajac.

Day 4: Rajac - Kostunici

The ethno-village Kostunici is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Serbia, on the southern slope of the Suvobor mountain. There are two stories about how the village got its name and no one knows which is correct, probably because one talks about nature, the other about people. And nature is cared for and loved here. Above Kostunici lies Ravna Gora, a place of famous historical events that has been preserved in its original beauty.

The surveys of Vidikovac and Babina Glava, Mokra pećina, and other unspoiled nature gifts were given by God for the budget traveler to the traditional Serbia who meets and often returns to these moments. There is a swimming lake in the complex. The lake is surrounded by the Cer forest and is sunny on all sides. It was created by dividing the Čemernica River with a concrete dam just 300 meters below the settlement with sculptures.

It is 1.90 meters deep and 30 meters wide. Children and sports enthusiasts have volleyball and soccer fields on the shores of the lake. There are also pottery and handicraft shops where passionate ethno collectors can add to their collections or bring “summer memories” to friends. The facility has two restaurants with Serbian and international cuisine. The entire complex was built according to Serbian architecture.

Day 5: Kostunici - Gostoljublje

Today, you are slowly leaving the Serbian steppe and returning to the Dinaric Alps. This transition from the mountain steppe to the Dinaric Alps is very impressive and shows you how much nature has changed in this area. The ethno-village Gostoljublje is located 140 kilometers from Belgrade and belongs to the municipality of Kosjeric, the village of Mionica. The village is near the mountain center Divcibare, on the south side of the Maljen mountain. Rural tourism is the main activity of this farm and agriculture is an activity that complements what is on offer in terms of food production. It is ideal for guests who want an active vacation and want to get to know the way of life and work in the country.

Day 6: Gostoljublje - Taor

Slowly, you are returning to the paths of the ancient Romans who took Dubrovnik over the Povlen mountain connected with the Danube. In this way, too, you visit your ever-dear Taor sources. Many small water veins arise from the porous limestone tuff - in winter the water is rather warm and in summer quite cool, on hot summer days a glass of the cold spring water gives you a very satisfying feeling.

In earlier centuries, there were around 20 active water mills along the water sources, which milled rye, barley, and oats at full capacity. Most of them have disappeared, but a small watermill has remained, which can transport you a little back in time. The freshly prepared food and the miller’s good mood underline the atmosphere and lifestyle of the highlands. After visiting the local miller, you go up to the initial farm, where a dinner with local fruit brandy awaits you, where you can exchange your impressions and ideas.

Day 7: Povlen Mountain

  • Riding time: 5 to 6 hours

After breakfast, you will start at an altitude of around 1100 meters above sea level and will explore Povlen Mountain which is approximately 1400 meters tall. Since 2023, Povlen has been a nature reserve with over 170 species of birds, various wild animals, and mountain springs. From this magical mountain, you will have a spectacular panoramic view of the whole of Serbia and can enjoy the peace there. In the Middle Ages, Povlen was a very important road through which merchants transported their goods on horses and donkeys. After lunch you descend into the villages, cross the Skrapez River and visit its source middle in the forest.

Day 8: Return to the airport

After a satisfying breakfast, you start your journey to the airport.
