Off-road in the Osogovo mountain




If expedition or high-speed off-road is your hobby or passion, the Osogovo mountain offers routes, suiting every aspect of driving off the asphalt road. Whether with a jeep, an ATV or an enduro, the ride on the set routes will give you the most of cross-country and heavy-terrain driving. You will be able to practice with a high-lift, a block and tackle, and a winch, skills which will come in handy when that is truly necessary.

Be prepared before you go! Protect nature – we have borrowed it from our children!
