Peaks of the Balkans

Peaks of the Balkans is a regional hiking trail that stitches together local hiking trails across Albania, Kosovo, and Montenegro into one regional trail of 192 km. The world’s newest transnational hiking experience the Peaks of the Balkans Trail is a winner in the prestigious global awards

The amazing thing about this trail is that it draws on a common cultural and historical past to create a destination worth hiking while you are visiting Southern Balkans.

The premise of the route was to offer a culturally immersive adventure travel and sustainable tourism product that could also help support local families in remote mountain areas.

Although most of the trail is marked, still some sections need some maintenance in order to keep the overall good trail condition. But what lacks in some sections it is made up of the amazing local hospitality and authenticity of experiences delivered by local guesthouse owners, guides, and porters.

Another element that will draw your attention is the colorful landscape, high mountains, glacial lakes, amazing flowers, and fewer tourists than you might have thought.

Peaks of the Balkans is one of the best hiking trails for adventurers.
