    August 28, 2017 Via Dinarica Kosovo a 4 day hike

    Hiking through Rugova and Decani mountains Liqunat – Zllanopoje – Bjeshka Belegut – Doberdol with Gjeravica on the top with Balkan Natural Adventure Adriatik Gacaferi We went from Liqunat to Gjeravica in Kosovo, with a stop in Doberdol Albania to experience the last remote places in Europe. The group — a British father and son with military background — is just perfect clients, who become more like friends and family during the hike. The voyage that starts in Peja is part of a promoted mega trail called Via Dinarica. This trail goes through Kosovo, while it starts in Northern Italy and ends in Greece. Contrary to some promotion done by donors the trail is empty from tourists which makes the whole experience unique. The great panoramas open as God hath created them with no people in it. On the first day the Hike started in Rugova mountains, passed through two glacial lakes to arrive in the village of Zllanopoja. Thats where the stop is made at Zeka Guest house. Zeka is a native of these mountains, who also runs a fast food restaurant in Peja city and a bio guest house in the mountains. Zeka built his guest house where […]

  • Top of the Hajla with fog
    August 22, 2017 Hajla in a foggy day

      Balkan N. Adventure Hajla in a foggy day is not bad at all, actually it is very nice, with a guide like Adnan its pretty cool. Our clients from Switzerland chose the two day Hajla climb from the guest house of Mustafe Nikci  where they had traditional dinner, breakfast and a takeaway lunch to eat while in the mountain. After the booking was agreed the clients came in the afternoon at the guest house to meet the guide and start the adventure. After a 40 minutes ride they met with the host at the guest house and were introduced with the traditional diner, dominated by dairy products meat and bread. Nafije Nikci is a very good cook as her cooking is never monotonous with several dishes always there for tasting. The dinner served and up to sleep for the hike tomorrow. The weather was not the best in the world, however as the Norwegians say there is no bad weather, there is just inappropriate clothing. Thanks to the guide the fog was not a problem and the trail was clear, in the middle of the day top of the Hajla 2503. The 360 degree view was substituted with a mistique […]

  • May 9, 2017 THE SCIENCE OF WHY YOU SHOULD SPEND YOUR MONEY ON EXPERIENCES, NOT THINGS

    Most people are in the pursuit of happiness. There are economists who think happiness is the best indicator of the health of a society. We know that money can make you happier, though after your basic needs are met, it doesn’t make you that much happier. But one of the biggest questions is how to allocate our money, which is (for most of us) a limited resource. There’s a very logical assumption that most people make when spending their money: that because a physical object will last longer, it will make us happier for a longer time than a one-off experience like a concert or vacation. According to recent research, it turns out that assumption is completely wrong. “One of the enemies of happiness is adaptation,” says Dr. Thomas Gilovich, a psychology professor at Cornell University who has been studying the question of money and happiness for over two decades. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. But only for a while. New things are exciting to us at first, but then we adapt to them.” So rather than buying the latest iPhone or a new BMW, Gilovich suggests you’ll get more happiness spending money on experiences […]

    On display at the Ethnographic Museum in Kosovo’s capital of Pristina is a lady’s wooden shoe with a sole covered with intricate carvings and rich inlays of mother-of-pearl. It dates from the 18th century, but any woman would be proud to wear it, then or now. The museum, which is in a former 18th-century manor house that once belonged to a wealthy Albanian family during Ottoman rule, also exhibits sumptuous textiles, jewelry and furniture, and includes a birthing

  • March 14, 2017 SIZES UP THE ACCURSED MOUNTAINS. BUT DO NOT LET THE NAME MISLEAD YOU. THIS BROODING, UNSPOILT RANGE OF ALBANIAN PEAKS ARE ‘BLESSED’

    Epic Walks: the Accursed Mountains (The Peaks of Balkans), Albania James Ottery  Do not let the name mislead you. This brooding, unspoilt range of Albanian peaks might be known as the Accursed Mountains, but – when you get in among their mighty slopes – “blessed” may seem the better adjective. For hikers who like their trails remote, their scenery craggy and their hospitality Balkan-strength, this eight-day trek stands as one of the region’s greatest summer adventures. Albania in any form is a superb travel destination – it is proud, beautiful and rich in tradition – but as somewhere to walk, it is downright unforgettable. Rolling hills: The Accursed Mountain ranges in Europe The Dinaric Alps, of which the Accursed Mountains form a part, are just a few hours north from the whirl of Tirana, the capital. Towering grey rock faces soar above flower-specked meadows. Icy rivers thunder through green valleys. Shepherds’ quiet paths snake over mountain passes, through beech copses and past sun-struck farmsteads. Europes top mountain hike? This is European hiking as it used to be, heading deep into an isolated but utterly magnificent corner of the continent. And though summer rain is rare, the weather can on occasion […]
