Adventure activities in Serbia

WHILE #Serbia is developing a reputation as a cycling and hiking destination –offering experiences such as the Danube Bike Trail – these activities represent only a small sample of the adventures an adrenaline junkie can expect to find. 

The country’s wild spaces are calling out to thrill-seeking holidaymakers …   

HIKING – Serbia offers a variety of hiking options for walkers of all aptitudes. Some of the top destinations include the national parks of Fuska Gora, Djerdap, Zlatibor & Tara, and Kopaonik. 

CYCLING – From the sedate to the challenging, Serbia offer this and everything in between. Options for the more sedate cyclists include the Danube Bike Trail, 410 miles of which are to be found in Serbia. Road cycling and mountain biking options include the Beast From The East, or more formerly the Euro Velo 11.

CAVING – Serbia has more than 4,000 caves, including the 3,000ft Lazareva Cave near Zlot, the longest in Serbia, or the 2,542ft Ceremošnja Cave near Kučevo.

ORIENTEERING – If you like to find yourself in a remote spot with little more than a map and a compass ticking off control points in the right order in the shortest possible time, Serbia will greet you with open arms. This sport is popular in Serbia, with around 180 specialized orienteering maps covering many tourist locations.

SKIING – Serbia's most developed and popular ski resorts are Kopaonik, Tornik on Zlatibor, and Stara Planina.
