  • Canyoning in Durmitor

    Canyoning is sliding down through the riverbed. The different equipment is used depending on the severity of the canyon. Walking down waterfalls with ropes, rock climbing, crawling through the cracks, diving, jumping into the pool filled with water are main activities in this sport. That’s why there is no special equipment used, but parts of the equipment from other sports. The most basic pieces of equipment are helmet, belt and lowering static rope, and if the water is cold a wetsuit. Depending on the severity and exposure, we use toggles for insurance when alighting.

  • 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 […]
