Description

Did you know that, not very long ago, trekking through the Accursed Mountains of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro was not even an option?

That’s right! During the times of the USSR, strict border controls and political turbulence made traveling through this remote area virtually impossible. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Today, this area is becoming a popular trekking destination. Join us to find out why!

Over the course of 10 days, we’ll hike on the Golden Triangle, otherwise known as the “Peaks of the Balkans” trail. This route stretches over 192 kilometers and winds through some stunning mountain scenery. Come along and discover the immense beauty of the Accursed Mountains first-hand.

Along the way, you can expect to see horses and sheep grazing on the lush green hillsides. Cozy houses nestled in the mountains and clear rivers and streams add to the idyllic landscape. We’d say the mood set by the scenery is definitely pastoral and serene!

If you plan to join us, you should be in good physical shape as the terrain varies from an easy and moderate difficultly level. The highest point in our trek is 2,300 meters above sea level.

Come and discover the culture and exceptional natural beauty of this newly accesible region of the world! It’s sure to be an adventure you’ll never forget.
