Hiking or trekking on mountain routes is generally characterized by compatible outdoor activity and presents no technical difficulties during the route. It is the crossing of landmarks and exploring the mountainous nature and terrain, not necessarily interested in the ascent to the peaks. It combines mild aerobic exercise with mental relaxation and enjoyment of nature on the mountainous countryside. Join us and you will hike in historic spots, old cobblestone streets or just trails through the woods, while you will have the magnificent views of the mountains. We offer mountain day trips and multiple days trekking plans. There are degrees of difficulty for each route and a beginner should start with mild routes.
