    Balkan Natural Adventure has lent their equipment to local mountaineering community free of charge as part of the corporate social responsibility of the company, and as a tool of supporting the community that creates our priceless workforce, which makes snowshoeing in Kosovo a fun activity. In the long weekend in the mod of February, when Kosovo was celebrating 10 years of independence, mountaineers run away from Rita Ora concerts in the serenity of the mountains.  The members of the oldest Mountaineering group in Kosovo called Gjeravica with a gigantic flag started climbing Guri i Kuq, a peak on the Peaks of the Balkans Trail. The climb, we were told, was great fun however they did not reach the peak. BNA provided snowshoes for the group, free of any charge.   Our friends from Peja gathered around Shijo edhe ti association made an attempt to climb the mountain of Cfrla.

  • January 9, 2018 Snowshoeing in 2018 getting better

    Snowshoeing in Kosovo both in Rugova and Sharr mountains is making it’s mark. With a Polish group snowshoeing for three days in December 2017 and January 2018 the start was very good. Currently new groups book every weekend making it more popular. For those living in Prishtina its the best escape from what sometimes looks like the most polluted city in the world. The Rugova mountains offer incredible conditions for daily and weekend tours. With almost no ski infrastructure, after an hour of walk you are out into the wild nature. Trails go through parts of the mountain that have zero avalanche risk, and offer open views of the Rugova mountains. Simultaneously you will be walking next to the woods experiencing the winter magic. Keeping it all safe in proximity of the village. Some more difficult trails go through Peaks of the Balkans rout, and some mountain peaks can be climbed on request. If you are motivated enough our guides can take you to higher peaks such as Gjeravica or Cfrla.  For winter climb these tours include a sleepover in a small hotel or a cabin. For special trails contact us and we will make the itinerary together. More text […]

  • November 6, 2017 Climbing the piribreg in Sharr, by Vivianne Rau

    My friend and I, two travelers in Kosovo, had the pleasure of enjoying an unforgettable day with not one, but three tour guides of the Balkan Natural Adventure team in the Sharri National Park. Adriatik, Nol and Marigona are super nice and experienced hiking guides and also the snow could not dissuade us to climb the top of the Maja Piri Bregut at 2524 meters. The three picked us up from our accommodation in Prizren in the morning and we drove together to Brezovica, a famous ski resort in Kosovo. On our way there, we could already envision the beauty of the mountains and breathtaking snow-capped mountain peaks. Arriving in Brezovica, we started our day tour at 1700 meters altitude. Equipped with snowshoes, hiking sticks, and a positive attitude, we started the climb. At the beginning of the trail, the snow was just covering the ground. However, the higher we went, the deeper the snow became. We were glad to be walking with our guides, as the trail markings through the snow were not always visible. Adriatik explained the stunning landscape to us and which mountains were passing in front of us. At any time, we were surrounded by postcard-like […]
