10.30 AM – 4.30 PM: Biking

Start at Junik bus station at 10:30. You will be provided with a mountain bike and helmet before we begin our relaxed 24 km ride to the village of Dranoc. This trip allows you to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and scents of this very traditional region of Kosovo. After passing several of the vernacular fortified stone houses, known as kullas, we will pull into Dranoc to be welcomed into one by a local family. Though many have been damaged by conflict during the 19th and 20th centuries, the remaining restored kullas represent the resilience of the people in this region for whom hospitality is a true virtue.

You will join the family in preparing flija, a traditional Albanian mountain speciality made over an outdoor fire. The flija will be served in the oda (traditional guest room) of the kulla, on a traditional dining table known as the sofra. Your meal will be topped off with Turkish coffee before the minibus returns you to Pristina.
