This tour is perfect for very fit hikers who look for an extraordinary adventure and are eager to explore the Albanian Alps/Prokletije Mountains of Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo in depth.
This transnational tour discovers one of the remotest and wildest mountainous regions of the Western Balkans. With its variety of awe-inspiring landscapes of sheer cliffs and green valleys, picturesque traditional villages and crystal-clear mountain lakes, this is a true “hidden treasure” for hikers and nature lovers.
The itinerary covers the traditional villages of the northernmost Albanian region Kelmend, from where we cross into Montenegro to stand in awe to the sheer rock cliffs of the Prokletije Mountains around Grbaja.
