Outdoor Activities

From hiking and rock climbing to skiing and cycling, two of the most famous mountains that offer year-round outdoors activities are Rugova and Brezovica.

Rugova is one of many places where you can not only hike and cycle, but also enjoy rock climbing on the area’s surrounding granite walls. For people who are not keen on outdoor activities, Rugova also offers a breath-taking landscape and authentic local cuisine.

The Brezovica Mountains are ideal for skiing during the winter and hiking during the summer. Accom­modation is mostly in chalets, with some hotels at the foot of the mountain, while snow-covered slopes provide ample room for skiers, snowboarders and hikers.

Through its proximity to Prishtina Airport and Skopje Airport, the resort is a possible destination for international tourists and has the potential to become the most favorable winter tourism destination in the Balkans.

The “Peaks of the Balkans” Trail Trans-border Hiking through Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro

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.
