Itinerary

4 Day Albania Hike, Bike and River Rafting

Day 1: Tirana - Gjirokaster

The mysterious Albanian south awaits! It's an early start from Tirana at 06:00, but already after 3 hours, we will reach the stone city of Gjirokaster. It is probably one of the steepest cities in the World, as Ismail Kadare describes it in his book "Chronicle in Stone". Gjirokastra, another city protected by UNESCO  will amaze you with the unique architecture and its dominant castle on the top of the hill. It is a city with a rich and glorious history, culture, and delicious local cuisine. In this mysterious, cold looking city, the life is developed in levels starting from the tunnels and galleries builder under each merchant shop where they communicate with each other and sore their products during the non fridge era.   On the surface, charming little cobble streets connect the castle - looking stone houses with heavy doors, plenty of windows and definitely very Instagramble.

Day 2: Gjirokaster - Permet - Rafting on River Vjosa

We leave Gjirokaster around 09:00 to travel to Permet, a small city beautifully located in between mountains and caressed by Vjosa, one of the last wild rivers in Europe. You guessed it right - you are in for an adventure as this portion of the river offers excellent opportunities for rafting! The Vjosa River valley is characterised by numerous swirling streams, canyons, freshwater springs, islands, and curves that create magnificent meanders while passing panoramic landscapes and characteristic villages. River Vjosa is categorised for II-III level rafting (fast flowing waters with small waves) and does not pose difficulties in navigation so no prior rafting experience is required. Before the start of the journey, professional guides will explain the basic rules of rafting. After four hours of adrenaline, great fun and picnic lunch by the river we'll take you back to Permet in the late afternoon.

Day 3: Mountain Biking Tour

Today we dive deeper into the stunning nature around Permet on a mountain biking tour along the Vjosa River. The 31-km round trip route offers beautiful views of the Vjosa and Lengarica valleys, the chance to visit the characteristic village of Bënjë and immerse yourself in the hot thermal baths. Our biking route follows a mixed path of both asphalt and dirt road in close contact with nature. This full day tour is perfect for anyone who loves unspoiled nature, the countryside and mountain biking. In the evening you have free time to explore the quiet, harmonious life of Permet such as its innumerous gardens and make amazing culinary discoveries.

Day 4: Trekking in Permet - Tirana

Before returning to Tirana in the late afternoon, you have a chance to explore the area around Permet even further on an easy 3-hour loop trek. Along the route we'll visit the villages of Lipe and Leuse, unique for their stone architecture and Greek Orthodox churches and monasteries from the 14th century.
