Tirana & On request
Visit at one of the most beautiful national parks in the south of Albania. Experience off-road driving and enjoy the fresh air that fill your lungs while you drive up. Beautiful sea scenery.
Our tour begins with an early pickup either in the Center of Tirana or at your hotel and head to the city of Vlorë. Known also as Valona, this historical city is located in south-western Albania where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas meet. Vlorë is situated as the gate-way to the Albanian Riviera, the gem of Albanian Tourism, and sits at the head of the Karaburun Peninsula and Sazan Island. We spend time here at the sea so you can get some sun while enjoying the sandy and rocky beaches and the scenic mountains nearby. We visit a cold water spring which is connected to the salty sea. Vlorë holds a significant place in Albanian history as this is where the Albanian Declaration of Independence was signed on 28 November, 1912.
From the seaside we head to the mountain top city of Llogara, which is located 1,045 meters above sea level. We visit the National Park of Llogara. Established in 1966 by the Albanian Government. The park covers an area of 1,010 hectares. And is covered in pine trees including the “Flag Pine”, named for its special shape. The highest point of the mountain offers a marvelous view with the sea on the right and the mountains on the left. As we enjoy the beautiful views of nature, we have our delicious, traditional lunch. We have a chance to try the traditional dishes of goat, pork and lamb. After lunch and a little time for relaxation in this peaceful place, we begin our re-turn trip to Tirana.
