What we offer is about organizing and guiding nature related activities. The Alpine Club Prishtina has several sectors that operate within its framework, and within these sectors special services are provided for nature lovers. In our organizations we strive to be professional and successful, and to adapt to the requirements and preferences of our members. Our activities are transparent and are advertised on our website. Walking or climbing at certain intervals, in Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, etc. People of all ages, genders, and ethnicities join us at every event. According to the standards and the Statute harmonized with that of the CDFW, we keep records regularly, and are responsible for the importance of providing the best guidance on the ground.
Some of our activities are aimed at camping, some long walks and climbs, but there are also some that may be characterized by hiking and tourism, with the aim of visiting and getting to know cities, gorges, lakes, villages, facilities of particular importance, as well as the culture of different communities.
The activities of KAP are:
Recreational Walking (Hiking)
This sector is the most popular sector and has the most members and participants in such actions. Conditionally, this is also our widest offer and to which all lovers of nature and healthy life can join. The reason for this lies in the fact that this type of activity offers a lot and is not dangerous.
The hikes and climbs that take place in our organization, provide very attractive views of Kosovo and the region, but also enable the physical and mental fitness of the body, without compromising; hence the possibility of gradual preparation of walkers.
Another advantage of this sector is its recreational nature, where all ages and genders can participate, without exception.
Multi-day hikes (two or more days) are more complex, but they are well-liked for the fact that within a few days, many places are crossed and there is the element of adventure. Camping is also an integral part of the Multi-Day Walk. There is no frequent organization in this sector, but when organized, there is always a lot of interest.
We have divided hiking as a separate sector, as it is also developing in the world and in the region. We call it Mountains because it is clearly distinguished from Recreational and Multi-Day Walking, which can also take place in picturesque villages, resort towns, etc. Mountain climbing only takes place on high mountains, at high altitudes, and as such implies combined climbing and hiking. There are no marked paths and it requires better preparation by the participants. Our guides have enjoyable experience in this discipline as well, so it is one of the activities where there is always a lot of interest.
Education - Orientation and Observers
The training and orientation sector is operational, both indoors and outdoors. We have equipment and personnel licensed to conduct training of these categories. Orientation is in its infancy, but our members are gradually advancing in the areas of Cartography, Compass, GPS and other orientation equipment. Whereas, for small observers, special programs are being created with which we will be able to hold one or more daily recreational trainings in order to get acquainted with nature.
Mountaineering (rock climbing)
The Mountaineering Sector is a special sector and is reserved for members who only train with us. Hikers are fewer in number because the field requires more physical and mental commitment. Among other things, it is a sport that requires equipment and time, yet it is very attractive, fun and interesting for all members. With KAP, anyone can try this sport, under safety conditions, and under the care of our hikers. With a little bit of technical preparation, we can even get into the caves, but also try a little adrenaline rush. In general, little of mountaineering can be tried by any member of the KAP.
Defining and Marking Paths
This sector is very important for our organizations. Definitioners and Markers have a developed sense of searching for and defining attractive and safe paths. They create trails of a European character, according to UIAA standards, and as such provide the Organizing Team with hiking and mountaineering groups.
They also keep records, mark and maintain these paths.
Alpine Search and Rescue Sector (Expected to Be Formed)
This sector is expected to be formed soon; and is about searching and rescuing high mountain, rock, buildings, bridges, caves, and in exceptional climatic conditions. We have well-trained climbers physically and technically able to form the appropriate team. This is a requirement of the UIAA, of which we are also part.
