Day 1: Hiking in the Llogara National Park: T2, 1h, ↑75m, ↓175m, 3km

Our journey to the coast starts early in the morning, from a centrally located meeting point in Tirana. The guide will pick you up there, to start the journey towards Llogara National Park.
It is one of the most beautiful sites in Albania with a total area of 1020 hectares, covered in everlasting green. In the inner part of the forest there are beautiful lawns, countless natural resources and numerous animal and bird species.
The hike of this afternoon follows Caesar’s path. In 48BC, during the war with Pompeus, Caesar’s army anchored in Palasa, and from there followed this path to travel to Orikum and defeat Pompeus.
Accommodation will be provided in a hotel in the park.
The price includes:
• Lunch
• Dinner
• Accommodation in a 4-Star hotel in Llogara
*Please see “Inclusions” section!


Day 2: Hiking to the Qorre Summit: T3, 7h, ↑1000m, ↓1000m, 9km

Today’s destination is the Qorre Summit, which rises at an altitude of 2018 meters and is the second highest peak of the Ceraunian Mountains. On the southeast, Mount Çikë goes sharp into the sea: a difference of 2000 meters in less than 5 kilometers. Especially on its upper part, there are very steep mountain slopes. The trail to the top is very visible, but steep and we’ll have to walk on scree. At the top you will be rewarded with a magnificent view: wild mountains and paradise beaches stretching along the coast. After a short photo break, the descent begins. As we approach the park, the path becomes less difficult and goes through pine trees. The return to the hotel is planned for afternoon.
The price includes:
• Breakfast
• Packed Lunch
• Dinner
• Accommodation in a 4-Star hotel in Llogara
*Please see “Inclusions” section!


Day 3: Hiking to the idyllic Grama Bay: T3, 9h, ↑600m, ↓1450m, 15km

After breakfast starts the hike to the Grama Bay, following a trail that begins from the hotel. We will walk through a dense forest toward Qafa e Thellë, until we reach the pass that separates the national parks of Llogara and Karaburun. From there the hike continues on a partially visible trail until we reach the Grama Bay – an untouched beach in a special atmosphere, where you can enjoy the nature or bathe in the crystal-clear sea. Ships and vessels used to anchor there since antiquity. The coastal shoreline along the Bay area has cultural heritage sites of significant value: sculptured frescoes from early Christian period, inscriptions from Hellenistic period. The area can be considered as one of the richest “rocky diaries” in the Mediterranean”.
Accommodation is provided in tents.

• Accommodation in Tents
*Please see “Inclusions” section!


Day 4: Hiking along the Ionian Coast: T2, 7h, ↑550m, ↓550m, 13km

Today’s trail goes parallel to the sea and the scenery is very beautiful. It is not very steep and, in some cases, flat. The first stop is at St. Andre Bay, located about 5km away from Grama. Totally isolated from the rest of the world, the bay has kept its natural beauty intact. After a short break to bathe, we will continue walking toward Palasë, again following the trail parallel to the sea. The delta on the beach of Palasë is a particular geographical phenomenon, because it looks always white due to the presence of limestone. It consists of sediments of solid material brought in from the stream of Palasë. It has the shape of a large cone and is called the stream of “white roads”. In Palasa, we will board the vehicle for the transfer back to Tirana, where the farewell dinner and accommodation will be provided.

We are strongly committed towards responsible and sustainable travel.

We please our guests to follow our guidelines regarding sustainability:

• Respect the local people, their culture and environment.
• Support locally owned businesses, restaurants and other services: Eat local food and drink local brands and brews.
• Shop from traditional artisans and for locally made products. Favor local products over imported items. This helps in keeping traditional crafts alive. Even a small amount could be extremely important to local producers.
• Always ask first before photographing or videoing people. Send them back copies of photos to help make it a two-way exchange.
• We strongly recommend bringing reusable water bottles. In places where tap water is potable, this eliminates the usage of single-use plastic bottles entirely.
• Bring a water filter. This way you can drink tap water even in places where it is otherwise unsafe to do so.
• Bring a reusable straw in case you use them regularly.

Feel free to ask any questions you might have. Our staff and guides are trained and able to advise you in detail about our approach towards sustainability.
