Food

  • All breakfasts and 1 lunch included.Food in Albania is quite varied thanks to the many influences on the country and particularly Mediterranean combining Turkish, Greek and Italian tastes. Dairy products, especially milk and yoghurt are present in almost every meal, usually locally sourced. Under the leadership of Enver Hoxha Albania became a self-sustaining country due to its isolation from the world. However the lush fertile valleys, fresh mountain springs and Mediterranean climate, means it is still very much a subsistence culture and shows very little sign of changing. In the countryside expect your food to be very locally sourced. Breakfasts are typically eggs, fresh bread, jam, honey and coffee. For lunch and dinner, meat dishes are often goat or lamb, with fish dishes ranging from trout to whitebait. Courses often come in mezze form complimented with a variety of vegetables and salad, freshly baked bread, homemade cheeses, local wines and of course, raki. In the cities along the coast there are a number of restaurants to choose from with an array of Mediterranean cuisine and fresh seafood.Although treated we recommend that you always drink bottled water including when consuming meals. The most environmentally friendly method is to share larger 750ml re-usable glass bottles served in most restaurants.

Route 10 daagse groepsrondreis RCGS: Highlights of Albania with John Geiger

Some say that visiting Albania is as close as you’ll get to traveling back in time. It wasn’t until the collapse of the People’s Socialist Republic of Albania in 1991 that the world got its first glimpse of the country within. You’ll get a firsthand look at this previously isolated country accompanied by internationally bestselling author, renowned lecturer, and CEO of the RCGS, John Geiger. John has been featured on countless television and radio programs and documentary films such as Nat Geo’s ‘The Angel Affect’, and PBS’ ‘Arctic Ghost Ship’, so you can be sure he has plenty of stories to share throughout your 10-day adventure.Huge snow-capped mountains, inviting beaches, pretty rural villages, a genuine subsistence culture and an exceptionally friendly welcome is what awaits anyone who makes the journey to this much unknown gem. From the artist havens of Voskopoje, and the sweeping panoramic views of the Gramos Mountains to forgotten ancient Greek sites in Llogora National Park and the narrow cobbled streets of UNESCO-listed Berat, each day is packed with new adventures. See a different side of life at a local farm and taste local produce, taste your way through Permet which is famous for its food and wine, follow in the footsteps of Julius Caesar at the site where his battles against Pompeii were won, visit crumbling castles in Korce, and so much more.
