Hi! My name is Filip, I enjoy camping in the wild, adventures and slow music in the background. I yearn for any chance to draw closer to nature and connect. Let's explore the most spectacular gorge of the Danube river - the Iron Gate on two wheels. 8 days / 7 nights cycling guided holiday along the Danube (bicycle rental included) Pedal with the cooling river breeze by your side carrying life through the air as the river does, flowing along the riverbed. See the desert sand dunes of Deliblato, the cobblestone old town of Belgrade, the clandestine villages hidden away in forests & the flourishing plant and wildlife of the Đerdap national park. See the mighty Smederevo Fortress that is one of the largest in south-Eastern Europe. See the Ram Fortress, a remnant of the Turkish conquests, and the Golubac Fortress - a fortification of ambiguous history which hides a plethora of rich legends and stories. Feel the full depth of significance of the Danube as you come in contact with major Roman cities like Viminacium & eons old and gone prehistoric people's settlements of Lepenski Vir tucked within the canyons of Đerdap. Yes, among all the lore and history, you should also be ready for hearty meals that warm the soul and occasional dips in the gentle giant that is the Danube!
