Destination: Tirana, Macedonia, Albania
Activities: Hiking


"Albania’s Capital & Via Egnatia
First we spend a day sightseeing in Tirana - one of the quietest capital cities in the world. Continuing along the route known as the Via Egnatia (the old trade route between Rome and Constantinople) we reach the shores of beautiful Lake Ohrid and head over the border for a night in Macedonia, where we soak up the atmosphere of this little-visited region. The following day we return to venture deeper into Albania’s mountainous interior to explore forested hills and isolated churches decorated with colourful frescoes.

Exploring Medieval Gjirokastra
Our scenic drive continues through the White Mountains to Gjirokastra - the ’silver city’. The picturesque buildings and imposing citadel are now part of a ’museum town’ and we wander its cobbled streets discovering medieval merchant houses and an imposing castle. Reaching the shores of the Adriatic Sea, we arrive in Saranda and visit the nearby excavations of Butrinti, thought by the Roman poet Virgil, to date back to Trojan times.

Along the ’Riviera of Flowers’
Heading north along the beautiful ’Riviera of Flowers’ we relax at Dhermi and walk among the pine forests of Llogara National Park. Next we visit the old Corinthian site of Apollonia and spend a couple of nights in the fascinating museum town of Berat, exploring on foot. Finally, the feudal principality of Kruja stands as a reminder of the proud independence of its Illyrian descendants. In particular the hero Skandeberg is revered for his resistance to the Turks.
