The Balkans are the region of Southeastern Europe which lie between western Europe and the Middle East. It is composed of Bulgaria, Romania, Greece and various republics of former Yugoslavia and Albania. The Balkans are famous for their rich hunting grounds and wild, sparsely populated mountains. Endowed with several mountain ranges, beautiful coastlines and lush river valleys, these countries boast a long list of European species. They offer excellent trophy quality red stags, Alpine chamois, Alpine ibex, Balkan chamois, mouflon, fallow deer, roe deer, and wild boar, as well as rarer species such as the European brown bear, wolf and lynx. Macedonia is also the only country which can offer hunting for the coveted Kri Kri ibex.
As elsewhere in Europe, our programs in the Balkans have been designed specifically for our clients. Our staff travels frequently in the region, updating information and selecting new areas, always looking for the best hunting opportunities and the most reliable operators. Our partners in the Balkans are some of the most experienced and professional operators in Europe. Accommodations are very comfortable, with excellent foods and wines. The hunting is perhaps the best it has ever been in this region.
This small land-locked country, about the size of the state of Vermont, became independent in 1991 with the break up of Yugoslavia. It is one of the most mountainous countries of Europe with a small population and a long and proud hunting heritage. Rugged mountains and vast forests make this little country an ideal spot for traveling hunters.
Macedonia has become the primary destination for hunters seeking exceptional trophies of Balkan chamois, which are numerous there. There are also good populations of mouflon, wild boar, and other European species. The wolf population is among the densest in Europe and has become the best place in Europe for wolf hunting
Macedonia is also home to several famous game reserves where exotic species such as Himalayan tahr and Aoudad sheep have been stocked. It is the only country in Europe, outside Greece, which allows the harvest of Kri Kri ibex, a form of bezoar ibex which developed in the Greek Islands and has now been stocked in Macedonia.
Accommodations are comfortable and the cuisine is excellent, blending Eastern and Western dishes.
