Reviews for our self guided trips from trip advisor

We booked our self guided Peaks of the Balkans holiday via BNA. To be clear this is not the full trail but selected pieces of it with some transfers so there are plusses and minuses when considered against the full trail.
We couldn’t fault the organisation of accommodation and transfers through the trip, everyone was expecting us and some even asked for our reference number.
Our contact was super responsive to email questions and asked for information well in advance of it being needed so there were no last minute hiccups. She also gave good advice on getting back to Tirana at the end of the trip so we would not be in a rush for our plane home. Read the full reviw in Tripadvosor

I recently joined the open group organised by the Kosovar tour operator ”Balkan Natural Adventure“ to hike the most beautiful sections of the Peaks of the Balkans Trek. I choose BNA for this tour as their ticked off my most important considerations:
1. Only 9 days of hiking – So far I had only hiked 4 days in a row. The original Trek is hiked within 12 days , but that felt too long for me and the available vacation days I w anted to take.
2. Route adaption – the PoB was established already more than 10 years ago. Parts of the route, especially in rural areas of Kosovo, have been under development since and are not the natural trails anymore they used to be. The local guides working with BNA therefore adapted the route to offer the hikers the nature experience they are looking for. Read the full review in Tripadvisor

Where is the six star option? TripAdvisor needs one for Balkan N Adventure! We just finished a four day hiking trip along the Peaks of the Balkans with assistance of a self guided tour provided by BNA. The team at BNA put together a perfect plan that enabled us to fulfill our dream of traversing these majestic mountains. Timely communication before, during (!), and after our trip; expert logistical support; deep knowledge of routes and options. And a great value. We ran into a few travelers along our way who had been on guided tours with BNA or used their self guided services and spoke highly of BNA. I don’t post a lot of reviews, but BNA made my experience in the Balkans a once in a life time event, and I am grateful for their professionalism and hope to work with them again!
