Aiming at better service for hiking in Kosovo, Balkan Natural Adventure company guides have gathered to refresh, build in the knowledge and train newcomers in orientation and use of the GPS equipment. From now the use of GPS will be part of every BNA tour from now on.
“Now after every hike the clients will know how long, how fast and how far they have walked. They will have a 3D animation of their trip which they can share with their friends and enjoy proudly their hike”, explains Nol Krasniqi the COO of the company.
The use of GPS, compass and maps was reinforced with the training from the president of the orienteering club of Kosovo Mr. Kristian Gashi. A professional and passionate mountaineer Mr. Gashi was happy to provide the training for the BNA guides.
The activity started with theoretical updates for the equipment, with practical on the field tests of the equipment which were compared with the maps.

A total of eight people participated in the training, covered by the company for the guides who work for BNA and others who freelance and from time ti time are engaged by BNA.
