Kosovo walking holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Using no carbon transport such as cycling or walking not only gives you a slower paced experience, but also cuts environmental damage and tourist carbon footprint. We are committed to low-level tourism impact and we keep group sizes to a maximum of 12 to avoid huge tour bus loads of tourists, which increases environmental damage but also is less likely to be welcomed by locals. Slower travel also allows for more chances to interact with people from another culture.

Throughout most of the trip we will be travelling in minibuses. Travelling as a group in a small bus contributes less pollution than a multitude of vehicles. We will also be exploring many areas on foot to not only soak up the amazing sights at a slower pace, but to reduce our environmental impact and footprint along our journey.

Environment

We are promoting the natural beauty and ancient heritage of Kosovo through visiting not only Sharri National Park, but also the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Decani Monastery. UNESCO Sites are chosen by the UNESCO committee and must "bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to civilisation", "an important interchange of human values" or be outstanding examples of major stages of Earth's history or ecological and biological processes in evolution. Visiting such sites helps sustain the traditions and natural ecosystems of Kosovo through tourism.

Community

On Day 6 we will stay in a guesthouse in Drelaj for a unique glimpse into the traditions and customs of local life. The guesthouse market helps owners to provide good, clean and interesting accommodation which in turn allows them to educate their children, improve their standard of living and look after their ill. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains the families financially and us with the wonderful welcome and experience they give us. Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local nomads.

The best way to share stories and meet new people is over a plate of great food and a glass of wine in hand. On Day 4 we will visit a local winery and enjoy a traditional lunch. Supporting the local business not only maintains the cultural identity of the country but connects cultures through the most ancient of pastimes, eating and drinking!
