    South Albanian gem hiking in Zagori

    This is the trail of Albanian gems that will kill every prejudice against Albania that one may have!  Best season is February to April, November to October If you thought Albania was “a Muslim country”, well this trail will take you through Albanian Byzantine churches, covered with amazing frescoes. If you thought that Albania is a country of high snow-covered mountains, this Albania has no snow as it is too south for that. If you thought Albania has a continental climate, well wrong again, this hike is as the Mediterranean as Greece. If you thought Albania is dangerous to visit this will prove you totally wrong. This is a hike in the middle of the mountain with some of the most welcoming people in Europe.  Visit the city described by a Man Booker Prize Winner like this:  “It was a steep city, perhaps the steepest in the world, defying the laws of architecture and city planning. The top of one house might graze the foundation of another, and it was surely the only place in the world where if you slipped and fell on the street, you might well land on the roof of a house – a peculiarity known […]

    Horse riding in Valbona

    Join us for Valbona horse-riding tour in the Peaks of the Balkans in the Accursed Mountains with the master of horses Dardan Jubani. After establishing his business in the Valbona Valley as a transporter of luggage for hikers Dardan decided he can do more. With his good bread mountain horses, he now carries people instead of their luggage. Now, Dardan offers horse-riding tours from Valbona as one-day loop tours toward Stanet e Rosit through the village of Kukaj. In this trail you will ride through a 4×4 road, to enter an ancient forest and to arrive in open pastures. Here, you enjoy open views bordered by the rocky Valbona peaks. This will give you the feeling of “magnificent isolation” as Edith Durham the English traveler put it. There you will meet the last family that still has old-style shepherds and produces dairy products. A longer trail is the one that takes you to the Valbona Waterfall and back. This 15 kilometers equestrian experience includes riding through the valley of Valbona next to the river. A fairly easy road will take you next to the waterfall. There you can enjoy tiny water drops spraying you and your horse as you watch […]
