    Via Ferrata Berim in Zubin Potok

    Via Ferrata Berim in Zubin Potok is the top attraction of Northern Kosovo, and the longest Via Ferrata in the region. It holds two hanging bridges one 27 meters and the other about 7 meters. In difference from the Via Ferrata Mat and Ari in Rugova canyon this trail is constructed with loose side wires and smaller space for stepping, making it more difficult one but full of adrenaline at the same time. Via Ferrata Berim goes through a vertical cave and has a bench hanging in the air giving you a wonderful view of the valley. The ferrata goes straight vertically up through the rocky face surrounded by vallies with a look on the lake. Via Ferrata is In Zubon Potok Municipality located on the rocks of Berim on Mokra Gora Mountain. It is 25km far from Zubin Potok city centre, and the road to Via Ferrata crosses the Gazivode Dam further to Kovace Village, followed by a gravel road to Previja and further to Berim. Via Ferrata Berim begins with a hike through a mountain path where the logistic camp is situated. The first vertical part is about 80m. This is where you will go through the cave […]

    Hasan’s Peak or Maja e Hasanit

    This is short sweet and a very nice hike to a mountain peak 1900 meters altitude. However it is still a mountain and needs some efforts to summit it. Balkan Natural Adventure has added Maja e Hasanit or Hasan’s Peak to the list of short hikes in Kosovo from Peja because this trail fulfils some specific criteria. We believe its a best combination for someone who wants to climb a peak in a shorter time, without being in top shape. Climbing Hasan’s Peak takes 3 to 4 hours or 6.2 kilometres with 350 meters altitude difference return. These numbers make this an easy hike: More than a promenade to Livadhi Sakes and less than liking Lake Liqenat – and iot includes a summit.  In winter the starting time for Maja e Hasanit can be in late morning. After a small transfer through mostly asphalt road you will park and then start the hike. The trail goes through nice dirt road to continue shortly through a wood. The last part of the walk is in the crest from where you will enjoy majestic views. In the summer this short hike in Kosovo can be an afternoon hike starting after lunch at 15:00 […]
