This three-day adventure begins in Prishtina, where travelers are picked up at the airport and transported to the medieval town of Gjakova, Kosovo.
Located in the Dinaric Alps that connect Kosovo to Albania, we will spend our first evening getting to know one another and having a dinner of grilled meats, fresh vegetables, and homemade bread.
In the morning, after breakfast, we drive 30 minutes east to the village of Junik to begin our hike into the Dinaric Alps and to the glacial lake beneath Gjeravica Peak, the highest point in Kosovo at 2,656 meters. At the lake, we will set up the camp.
After arrival, the group will enjoy the view and a campfire-cooked meal along with an afternoon to enjoy the surroundings. At sunset, we will practice an hour of yoga as salmon and orange colors overtake the sky and peace overtakes our guests.
On third day morning, the trek starts from the lake to the summit. The path we will take, which is also part of the new trans-Balkan Via Dinarica Trail (from Slovenia to Macedonia), follows an ancient trade route that once connected Albania to Istanbul. When we reach the top of the majestic summit we will be able to look over Albania, Montenegro, and Kosovo. At the mountaintop we will take time for a yoga session along with taking pictures and eating snacks.
We will descend and hike back to Junik, where we will enjoy a traditional lunch of flija (savory pastry filled with cream) and then we spent a night in Kulla – Albanian Traditional House. We also have a chance to meet local people and spent time with them.
The next day, after breakfast with local people and traditional food, we drive back to Prishtina for a City Tour.
