  • Temple visit – religious patrimony

    Religious patrimony of Kosovo is unique. The country is a mix of religions, cultures and temples. While the orthodox churches are considered as the most beautiful of their kind, mosques compete with architecture designed by best of their time including Sinan, who has designed the larges mosque of Istanbul. A visit in Kosovo is worth maybe just for this. Western Kosovo is home to Patriarch in Peja (1346-1463), Monastery of Decan (1335), Hadumi Mosque (1594) in Gjakova with best acoustics of their time enabled by small pin-halls, Qashi Mosque in Peja (1462), and Sinan Pasha Mosque in Prizren (1615). On your way you can also satisfy your curiosity with the biggest Shia monument in the region the newly constructed Teke in Junik, or the very modest Qoku Mosque, considered as the first one build in Kosovo. The mix of cultures and religions in such a small place is quite a unique experience. What makes Kosovo even more interesting is that the country has been hit by wars way to often and people of this part of the world have succeeded to save these monuments that talk of peace and war. Balkan Natural Adventure in this two day travel will provide […]

  • Great Canyon Cave
    Great Canyon Cave

    Caving is a great activity for both summer and winter, so join us for this unique opportunity to visit one of the deepest caves in the Balkans. Experts first started exploring the Great Canyon Cave in 1997 and have since mapped a vast network of corridors, waterfalls, and underground lakes inside. Featured in a top European magazine for speleology, the cave was recently opened to the public.  In an effort to maintain its natural ecosystem, no additional lighting or walkways have been added to the cave, so it is necessary to visit with a trained expert. Luckily, for you when you visit Kosovo we have experienced speleologist and certified search and rescue guides who will guide you on this incredible journey. The trip in the Great Canyon Cave is ranked as difficult due to the relatively tight spaces and long duration, though anyone in normal physical condition will have no trouble on this adventure.  You should be prepared to be amazed for a journey that takes 2 to 3 hours in which you will see underground lakes, rivers and waterfalls. This is a unique trip offered rarely by the tour operators, as the quick buck is earned in massive tourism, and […]
