High Peaks of the Balkans

High Peaks of the Balkans Overview

Summit the highest peaks in Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and Macedonia on this European trekking holiday in the Balkans.

This Classic KE 8 day holiday includes an amazing trekking journey through four of Europe’s most exciting countries with the opportunity to stand on the highest point in each. In the heart of the Balkans - Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and Macedonia offer a rich melting pot of culture, cuisine and history combined with spectacular alpine scenery. We start our adventure in welcoming Albania and kick off the week in true KE style by summiting its tallest peak – Mount Korab (2751m). Located on the border between Albania and Macedonia, Korab sits in the Korab-Kortinik National Park. Next we head to the Republic of Kosovo with its rich traditions and simple lifestyle. Kosovo is a true undiscovered gem and we climb Mount Gjeravica (2656m), its highest peak and the second highest in the Dinaric Alps range. After Kosovo we cross-border trek between Albania and Montenegro through a remote and wild landscape before finishing our adventure by summiting the highest point in Montenegro – Zla Kolata (2534m). Finally we take a ferry through the fjord landscape of Lake Koman and a final night in Tirana sees us celebrate in the bustling capital of Albania. If you are looking for a new trekking holiday that is a KE classic – dramatic peaks to summit, amazing scenery and a spot of “the undiscovered,” then this is the perfect choice!
