She said “yes” when proposed to be joined in holy matrimony called marriage. Balkan Natural Adventure helped Ardian to organise his proposal in the Via Ferrata while in adrenaline rush, in a very unique place in a very unique way – totally unexpected. Everything was well thought and well planned. Balkan Natural Adventure wishes the couple all the best and healthy kids with unique Albanian word – U trashigofshi.

  • 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 […]
