Tour Highlight


The fascinating old center of Gjirokastra is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Largely medieval, with some lovely architecture to admire, reflecting the town’s wealthy past, it is built on a hill overlooking a valley and mountains. The drive to Gjirokastra is lovely.

On arrival, we will first visit the castle overlooking the entire town and its surroundings. This large castle houses a weapon’s museum. From there you will be guided on a small walk through the narrow streets of town towards the Ethnographic museum, which used to be the house of the parents of ex-dictator Enver Hoxha. This interesting museum will give you a good idea how the people used to live during the Ottoman period. 

After a short break to see the old shops and to purchase some typical products, we will leave town and drive to a nearby lake, where some specialties of the area can be tasted.

On our way, back to Saranda we will stop in the national park “Blue Eye”. In this peaceful forest, we will walk (5 min) to the crystal-clear spring called Blue Eye, where 900 m3 water per minute is coming from deep. If time permits, there will be a short coffee break at the restaurant next to the fast streaming river in the park, before heading back to the Saranda.
