10Laws regarding wild camping
The Law says wild camping is not allowed. Real life experience, on the other hand, tells us that it is OK to camp pretty much anywhere, as long as you get out of the cities. Use common sense if you have safety concerns and try to at least move out of sight from main roads. Be careful with campfires and take trash with you - respect nature.
There are not a lot of organized campsites in Serbia, especially in remote areas which are the most interesting for adventure riding.
It is possible to find cheap private accommodation (rooms, apartments...) almost everywhere.
11Trail riding and the law
Once again Law and common practice differ. By law, you are only allowed to ride on public roads, regardless of surface type. The good news is that vast majority of roads in TET Serbia are public ones! Private roads are not common here and they would mostly take you nowhere anyway so that is not a concern.
The only areas where care should be taken are Nature Reserves and National Parks. If there is no sign stating that riding/driving is forbidden and there are no locked gates you should be OK. Just use common sense and be respectful of other travelers and the environment.
A registered and insured bike and a valid driver's licence are required to ride legally. Your headlight must be turned on all the time, regardless of time of the day. A helmet and first aid kit are the only mandatory pieces of equipment."
