What to expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: White Drin Waterfall, Žljeb Mountain, Pec Kosovo

Surrounded by the Alps, Peja, one of the largest cities of the plain of Dukagjin, is a charming place. The stores,

mainly goldsmiths and jewelers, are lined up in the old bazaar (Çarshija e Gjatë), which was once a very important commercial center. Many architectural and historical monuments, such as the Çarshi Mosque, the Mill of

Haxhi Zeka and the Begolli House, embellish the promenade in the city center.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Patriarchate of Pec, Pec Kosovo

The Patriarchate of Peja, considered as the spiritual seat of the Orthodox Serbs, was built in the 13th century

grandiose frescoes, some of which date back to the 14th century adorn the walls of the three

churches and chapel, all connected by a single narthex. Some experts believe that the church was

built on the foundations of an older Catholic church, whose ruins are still visible

in the courtyard of the complex.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Rugova Canyon, Pec Kosovo

Only six kilometers from Peja,

is the incredible gorge of

Rugova, formed by the tumultuous current of the Lumbardhi River.

The deepest canyon of the country

is the entry point into the valley

Rugova, the Kosovar part of

Albanian Alps. The winding road

along the Lumbardhi River leads visitors to a beautiful fall

of water and Kosovo / Albanian outlying areas in the mountains


Duration: 20 minutes

Did this tour from Pristina. Had a fantastic time with my tour guide Arbies, he was a rather cool guy. Rather impressed with the scenery in Kosovo. Best part of the tour for me was going to an underground cave, where the guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Peja itself is a pretty little...

My guide, Ilir, showed me the best spots and has an excellent knowledge of the country - recommend 100%!

July 2023

Ilir was a wonderful guide, we loved our visit to the waterfalls and the monastery was a particular favourite, so beautiful inside. The perfect way to explore further in Kosovo.

September 2022

We had such a great day trip from Pristina, thanks to our wonderful guide Violaine. The tour was more than we expected, and she was the perfect guide: informative, easy to communicate with, flexible, and generous with her time. Highly recommended.
