Undiscovered Balkans

Undiscovered Balkans is a UK-registered adventure travel company founded in 2008 by British husband and wife team and Balkans aficionados, Emma and Ben Heywood.


Amazing adventures in Europe’s wildest corner

Escape the crowds on one of our small group activity holidays and adventure tours in the Balkans! The density of culture and spectacular nature in this region is near unsurpassed, yet scarcely known by western tourists. Our British founders have been on a mission to change that since upping sticks in 2008 to a stunning lake straddling Albania and Montenegro.

Now in our 12th year, we’ve become the UK’s go-to specialists for activity holidays in the Balkans which head far from the beaten path. Our range of small group adventures will take you deep into the heart of some of Europe’s most beautiful and undiscovered places. Each trip has been crafted with our extensive local knowledge and thoroughly tested for awesomeness, so whether you’re into hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, swimming, gastronomy or canyoning, we guarantee an unforgettable escape that will leave you as hooked on this region as we are.

You want stunning Adriatic coastline? We’ve got that. Fascinating cultural centres with delicious cuisine? We’ve got that. Soaring peaks and alpine mountains? Oh yes, we’ve got that. Pristine lakes, rivers, waterfalls and canyons? Guess what? We’ve got that!

There’s something for everyone, from family-friendly activity holidays to adrenalin-filled, super-active adventures, multi-day mountain romps, cross-border kayaking expeditions and more.

Currently we have offers in Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, Bosnia, and Croatia – and the more we explore, the more trips we will be adding to this site. Watch this space!
