Company philosophy

After a dozen years managing major marketing campaigns in Kosovo, Uta Ibrahimi made an executive decision. Run to the light. Her light? Exploring the beautiful landscape throughout her home, Kosovo, a small and mountainous spot on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe.

Today, Uta—a certified mountain guide, also known as the first person from Kosovo and first Albanian women to summit MOUNT EVERES, who has hiked, cycled, and climbed every corner of the country—shares that passion for adventure travel through her company: Butterfly Outdoor Adventure. Her guests are guaranteed fun and safety on tours in Kosovo, and across the region in Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro.

“We started guiding since the mountain is our home”

  • I did 50km cycling trip and rock climbing trip and it was above and beyond expectations. Both activities were challenging but the scenery was so rewarding. Uta and her guides love for the outdoors is infectious.
