Staying on a trout farm? Of course... where else but on a holiday in Kosovo?! Seriously though, this is a wonderful place to spend a night in the futuristic pink pods dotted all over the small lake. With the beautiful back drop of the Mokra Mountains, the Trofta Fish Farm offers delicious fresh fish in a delightful setting. Go easy on the local raki though!

Landlocked Kosovo, ringed by mountains, is ideal for pioneering travellers keen to discover Europe's newest country which only declared independence in 2008. Discover a country with snow-capped mountains, wide open plains, wildflower meadows, gorges and waterfalls. In the towns and villages the legacy of the influences of Islam and Orthodox Christian is evident with a wealth of mosques and monasteries.

The lively capital, Prishtina, is awash with UN and EU personnel and, combined with a population mainly aged under 35, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and lots of fun. On your tour to Kosovo, use Prishtina as a base to explore the Serb enclave of Gracanica where Byzantine frescoes adorn the 12th-century Orthodox monastery.

Regent Recommends

Don't miss the glorious Ottoman city of Prizren, nestled at the foot of the Sharri Mountains, its narrow cobbled streets crammed with old stone houses, exquisite mosques and Turkish baths.

Follow walking and biking trails through the countryside and up into the imposing mountains where you can join the locals skiing in the winter in Brezovica and relish the stunning scenery.

Consider including a visit to Gjakova on your holiday in Kosovo. The overwhelming hospitality of the Gjakovans is legendary and the food just seems to keep coming. Usually in Gjakova, on our group tours, we meet the leader (baba) of the Bektashi Dervish Order in the Bektashi Tekke. A very warm welcome is always guaranteed by this benevolent, kind man, who through the aid of a translator, shares the history of this fascinating order.
