Additionally the trio explored the possibilities of making a winter season Peaks of the Balkans. The trip was rough. As our 4X4 went into trouble to spearhead through the heavy snow in a fuly covered road. After pushing the Nissan Terrano to its limits time came for the hike. “Maybe we could push some more meters with the 4X4, but it would cause more harm than good”, said Adriatik Gacaferri who was the driver and the batchitza of the trip. Surrounded by the rock walls  We organised the accommodation in a basic stone hut with the key hanging at the door. This decision was taken as the situation with the other […]

    December 27, 2019 Wild Albania Beaches Exploration

    Wild beaches in Albania are a special treat especially in the south of the country. One of the best wild beaches  is Shen Andreu (St Andre) next to the village of Palace. This beach is reachable only by boat or an 8 kilometres hike. Balkan Natural Adventure as a company offering tourism with minimal gas spending and transfers, has explored the Shen Andreu and Grame beachs. The expedition took place during December. This was a perfect time to feel the nature and enjoy it away from the noisy crowd of tourists. Swimming will be a bit difficult but the brave ones can give it a try from September to June. For a visit combined with swimming late autumn will be better than early spring. In Autumn the water is stil warm. Albania November to June This season also offers an abundance of other reaches.

    April 30, 2019 A hike accompanied only by nature – Peaks of the Balkans in April

    Balkan Natural Adventure opened the season of the Peaks of the Balkans trail with a hike in midd April, a silent human-less experience in majestic mountains of Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro, says our guide Adriatik.  Our Israeli client Issi took a solo trip with our guide Adriatik to do a small loop track starting in Valbona, going through Montenegro, Vusanje/Vuthaj coming back to Theth Albania and passing the iconic pass Theth to Valbone to end what we at BNA calls short Peaks of the Balkans trail. “There was snow but it was still hard and we could walk on top of it, we did not need the snowshoes”, explains Adriatik. “When we stopped for lunch in Qafa e Perslopit 2050 we enjoyed the food we had taken and plunged into unspoiled sounds of nature only. As a guide I spend a lot of time in the mountains, but these unspoiled moments are rare and beautiful”. Hike from Albania to Montenegro On the first day we went from Valbona (Albania) to Vusanje (Montenegro). A hike outside the classic Peaks of the Balkans trail and it has a very peculiar geographic feature. All the streams that are in the Albanian side end […]

    April 8, 2019 Our fight against rubbish

    For every booking above 600 Euro Balkan Natural Adventure will fund at least 15 litres of rubbish removal from the Peaks of the Balkans Trail. Adventure and natural tourism is more than a business. It is a passion it is delivered only when people love doing their job. Think of a guide who does not love mountains or a guide that will litter during you hike. It would spoil everything.  Balkan Natural Adventure is founded by passion and we see that our work in making our mountains known is making them vulnerable to littering and pollution.  We can not change the world but we can make a mark and make a difference. (Join us for our first collective action 4 may 2019: info@bnadventure.com)  How are we going to remove the rubbish  There are three ways that we will implement this task: The guide walking with you will collect while hiking removing litter from the bare nature or how it is now nicknamed plogging; Your luggage transfer people while walking with horses will collect rubbish on their way, and we will take special actions with our guides to collect the littering.  Engagement of guides to collect litter during the hike or […]

    May 3, 2018 Hiking and siesta in the Accursed Mountains

    Balkan Natural Adventure guides Arineta (Hike with Arineta) and Adriatik have led the first Peaks of the Balkans group in April in 2018. This was also the opening of the season not only for the company but for the mountains. This was the first tour that passed from Theth to Valbona this year. The road was bravely opened for Spanish visitors, who found time to take a siesta. A practise that both Adriatik and Arineta enjoyed – Here is their story. The hiking in Kosovo started in Reka e Allages with a climb in the Hajla Mountain, which continues to Drelaj. In a classical Peaks of the Balkans hike one would skip Hajla and walk in asphalt road.  BN Adventures has added the Hajla peak and cut the asphalt road from hiking. This asphalt is turned into a 20 minutes transfer, which was done the next day. The hike in Montenegro was an amazing mosaic, with patches of snow through the whole panorama. The glacial lakes were partly covered by snow but next to the woods the white was bringing out the green and creating incredible views. This hike passes through two glacial lakes, which also became the siesta location […]
