Full Itinerary

Day 1:

Settling in & getting to know everyone.

Arrival at Prishtina airport. Mirëseardhje! Kosovo is a land of remote, rugged mountains, home to ferociously independent people and stunningly untouched beauty. The Rugova Valley in the west, ringed by the spectacular peaks of the Accursed Mountains, stretches all the way to the Montenegrin border. We will be visiting cities and mountain regions.

You will be met at the airport by The MWTG lead and be taken by transfer straight to your hotel. You will check in and get comfortable before heading out to a welcome dinner together. It will also be a great time to get to know the whole group and get a taste of the local cuisine.

Our hotel is a 5 minute walk from ‘Sheshi’ (centre) of Prishtina.

Day 2:

Pristina

We will wake up to a traditional breakfast at the hotel before setting of for around 9am for a full day in the countries capital. We will do as much as possible on foot. We will start at the Kosovo Museum which is a pretty ochre-painted villa built by Austrians for the Turkish army in 1898 and was used by the Yugoslav national army until 1975. This is Kosovo’s national museum.

Next stop is The Fathi Masjid (Xhamia e Mbretit) is next on our list. This is a 5-minute walk from the museum. Also knows as The Imperial Masjid it is an Ottoman Masjid located in central Pristina. It was built in 1461 by Sultan Mehmet II Fathi. The masjid was declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1990 by the Republic of Serbia.

We will lunch at a traditional restaurant called Soma Book Station before covering the following sites by foot. Mother Teresa Cathedral, Mother Thresa Square, Newborn Monument, the Bill Clinton Statue (very very optional) the national library of Kosovo (also rated as one of the ugliest buildings in the world) and Prishtina cathedral.

We will then head back to our hotel to wash up and dress for dinner. We will source this locally. After enjoying our evening dinner, we will copy the locals and taking a nightly xhiro. The xhiro, confusingly pronounced the same way some people say “gyro”, is the Albanian word for the nightly stroll Kosovar people take through the main pedestrian plaza or city in Kosovo. It’s great to stroll there or grab a seat at a cafe and people watch.

Day 3:

Prizen

We will wake up to a traditional breakfast at the hotel before setting of for around 9am for a full day in the city of Prizen. Our private transfer will take us to Picturesque Prizen, with its charming masjid- and church-filled old town that shines with an enthusiasm that’s infectious.

It’s Kosovo’s second largest city. We will be visiting the Prizen Fortress, Sinan Pasha Masjd, Prizen’s old stone bridge, Emin Pasha Masjid. We will spend time exploring the Shadervani area, near the Shadervan or “fountain of many streams, see the last surviving minaret of the Arasta Masjid and explore all that Prizen has to offer.

We also have a quick visit at the Plis factory to learn about the traditional art of the traditional hat making. Lunch will be in Prizen before staying the night in a traditional old ottoman inspired hotel in the heart of the old city.

Day 4:

Rugova (Ski lesson)

We start the day early with breakfast at our hotel and then pack to leave Pristina for a night in the mountains.

Rugova is a mountain region located to the north-west of the city of Peja, in Kosovo. Rugova is rich with many landform elements such as caves, waterfalls, glacial lakes, high peaks, and tunnels. Once you have checked into your hotel you will take a walk to the ski station in Rugova to visit the area. You will lunch in the Goge Villa where you will get to try the traditional Skenderbeg dish. After lunch you will meet Gazi for a 1 hour skiing lesson with equipment and ski gear included. Whilst your session will only be for an hour you will be able to use the equipment for the rest of the day. 

​In the evening there is a chance to relax and unwind as the pool area and spa facilities will be booked out exclusively for the group for a hour.

Day 5:

Boge & Return to Pristina

This morning we’ll hit the slopes again as we meet Gazi for another ski lesson. This will give us a chance to continue practicing what we have learnt.

At lunch time we return to our hotel to pack up as we then head to Peja.

Peja is the third city of Kosovo and also the gateway to the Rugova Valley. It has the most amazing views of mountains, waterfalls, streams, and a ski area.

We leave a little after lunch to be back in Pristina. We arrive back around 3:00pm with just enough time to grab last minute bargains when shopping as we will be heading to the airport for about 4.30pm for our evening flight back home.
