On the second day we jump on road bikes and ride through villages where we will explore the region around Novoberdo Castle. On the following day, our tour continues to Peja, where we will test adrenaline by exploring Rugova Valley and climbing the via ferrata, the most daring adventure activity in Kosovo. For a little break, we will continue for a Peja city tour. Before departing for Prizren, a stop will be made at Decani Monastery, one of the most visited tourist attractions in Kosovo.
Once in Prizren, there will be the possibility for an interactive workshop at a ﬁligree factory. Afterwards we will try delicious kebab specialties at the most popular kebab shop in Prizren. After a city tour, the trip will continue to the next adventure: hiking from Prizren Castle to Struzha (15km). Dinner and overnight accommodation will be at a guesthouse in Struzha, where you will have some time to relax. The ﬁnal day will conclude with an early morning hike from Kosovo to Macedonia through Scarpa Peak and passing by Kara Nikolla Lake. This trip we organize in cooperation with Air Tour Prishtina, Petrit Riza.
Prishtina, Tradition and Nightlife
We will start in the middle of the day by visiting city center and few other important spots and monuments, Mother Teresa statue, George Kastrioti Skanderbeg statue, Çarshi Mosque – Pristina’s oldest building constructed in the 15th century by Turkish Sultan Bajazit, the 26-meter Clock Tower built by Jashar Pasha in 1764, ‘Fatih Mosque’ or Imperial Mosque built in 1461 under the Turkish Sultan Mehmed II Fatih, and the Ethnographic Museum Emin Gjiku. The city tour will then take you to meet an older couple who established a small business making the Albanian specialty “Flija”. Learn how to make a Flija and hear extraordinary stories from the elderly couple.
Cycling Through Villages and Novoberdo Tour
We will start the day with cycling through villages outside Prishtina, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and enjoy the local atmosphere, colors, and landscape. We will stop at the Badovci Lake after 25 kilometers, to continue further on a eastern side of Kosovo, Novoberdo, castle on top of the highest peak and end with a traditional restaurant and food.
Peja, Full of Adrenaline
We will start our day with adrenaline. In the Rugova Canyon just outside of Peja, a city in the southwest part of the country, we will tackle a 100-meter vertical climb with the Quines Cave, along the way. This via ferrata, which is like dancing on the rock, is an incredible introduction to the region and the welcoming landscapes that await across the country. After that, we will continue with the Peja city tour, visiting some of interesting cultural and historical points, like Patriarchate in Peja, Haxhi Zeka Mill and Ethnological Museum in Peja.
Prizren, the Ancient Spirit
Prizren is Kosovo’s main attraction and rightly so. A well-preserved old town, spectacular mountain scenery, breeze blowing from the Lumbardhi river and cultural diversity make Prizren a hot spot for everybody. On our tour, we will be visiting the Stone Bridge, the Turkish Hamam bath Gazi Mehmet Pasha, Sinan Pasha Mosque, Prizren, Albanian League of Prizren Museum, and many other important historic and architecture buildings that fulfill your spirit. After dinner, we will join a workshop for filigree at one of the oldest craft shops in Prizren. We will end our day by visiting the Castle in Prizren and hiking from there, to Mountain House in Sharri Mountain, where we will spend the night
Sharri Mountain, the Place to End Up
After a night spent in the middle of the mountain, with stars above us, this is the last day of our trip which will end up on a Scarpa Peak, 2460m. This is part of the Sharri National Park and part of the Via Dinarica trail, which connects Macedonia and Kosovo, through a mountain route. From this peak we can see Koritniku, Pashtriku and Gjallica peak.
