National Geographic Traveler magazine has recognized the Via Dinarica mega-hiking trail and cultural corridor—an eight-country route that spans the Western Balkans—as one of its “ Best of the World ” destinations for 2017. The NGT story, which includes 21 of the most interesting places on the planet to experience adventure and authenticity, makes the point that trekkers along the Via Dinarica have the chance to “sleep in remote mountain shelters along the Adriatic Sea, atop the region’s highest peaks, and above the continent’s deepest gorge.”
We’re excited for Green Visions to be mentioned in both the online and magazine versions of the “ Best of the World ” destinations for 2017 story. Not only do we feel proud to be part of the Via Dinarica movement, but there is something that touches us deeply since we’re doing it together with Via Dinarica Alliance and many other partners from the entire Western Balkans, including Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania and Macedonia.
“What was once a contentious region has become the planet’s most exciting cross-border destination. ‘The Via Dinarica has replaced politics with nature’, and ‘What could be more beautiful?’”
