    The transnational “Peaks of the Balkans Trail” leads through one of the most remote and wild mountainous regions of the Western Balkans. By using shepherd paths and footways, the trail winds through high alpine mountains up to 2,300 meters above sea level and leads through wild mountain scenery, with a diversity of breathtaking landscapes, varying from green valleys to crystal-clear mountain lakes, waterfalls, rivers and remote picturesque mountain villages, in which time seems to have stopped. All in all a “hidden treasure” for nature lovers and hikers.

Words From Our Customers

Richard Hargreaves UK I am very happy that Lendita has set up her own company, Kosova Outdoor, to help people from Kosova and many other countries to enjoy the mountains of Rugova and the Peaks of the Balkans cross-border trail. She has been a wonderfully efficient, welcoming and helpful organizer for my own cross-border treks in 2012, 2013 and now 2014. I wish her enterprise great success.

Richard Hargreaves UK, Retired secondary school English teacher and headteacher. Active supporter of the Balkans Peace Park Project (B3P) since 2001.

Federico Pagoni " I spent a wonderful and full of surprises week, in 2013, to take home out of routine photos. Me and my girlfriend had a lot of fun, joy and peaceful time, with a personal guide all the days, and with the constant support of Lendita for everything. Kosovo is a small world, and like a lot of places I visited in Balkans it seems thousands kilometers far away from Adriatic. Good food, untouched mountains, warm people full of hospitality... We enjoyed really a lot, walking and watching three countries, over 2500 meters above the sea, in a total silence. People, have a good trip in Kosovo!!!
