The Western Balkans is being hailed as Europe's new tourism experience.
Black Mountain has worked on numerous television productions, providing advice and logistical support for journalists, magazines, TV and radio. Examples include a log rafting expedition, clay pigeon shooting competition, catering (traditional cuisine) for 40 TV contestants on a boat, a private yacht for diving sequences, cross-border cultural events and even a horse race held 40km from the nearest paved road ! We have a passion for the ‘real’ Balkans, away from the well known tourist sites and we want to share this passion. Below are listed some of the publications and television productions assisted by Black Mountain :
