About the trip

Croatia, Slovenia, Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia, Monte Negro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, and Greece, what do they have in common? It is all part of the Balkan peninsula. The word Balkan comes from Turkis and it means Mountains and you can believe us, this mountain has a great rock to climb. Now it is pretty clear why we are heading this way, right?


Apart from great culture, food, drinks, and welcome local people, Balkan offers amazing known crags such as Paklenica in Croatia or Osp in Slovenia. There are also tons of unknown rock climbing spots and it is about time to go and punish it. Klemen Becan with his great knowledge of local situations and conditions is gonna guide us through one of the coolest parts of Europe in terms of nature, culture, and of course ROCK!


Using Adria and SunLiving camper vans as transportation and accommodation units gives us great freedom, flexibility, and comfort. There is La Sportiva and Singing Rock DEMO option every day. Looks like we are set to ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!
