Self-regulating ecosystems of biological diversity, as well as historic sites of global cultural and scientific significance. Some of the largest rivers in the Balkan Peninsula originate here.

In all of our holidays, we make sure that we are working with partners who help develop the local economy (use of mainly local farms, organic, plant-based wholefoods) and usefully reduce the pollution.
