9 dagen vanaf € 1.115,- (excl. vlucht)

Food

  • All meals are included except for one lunch in Gjakova, one lunch in Prizren and one dinner in Tirana. Under the leadership of Enver Hoxha, Albania became a self-sustaining country due to its isolation to the world. However, due to the lush fertile valleys, fresh mountain springs and Mediterranean climate, they are still very much a subsistence culture and show very little signs of changing. In the countryside, expect your food to have been reared/grown not too far from your plate. Food in Albania is quite varied thanks to the many influences on the country and particularly Mediterranean combining both Turkish and European tastes. Dairy products, especially milk and yogurt are present in almost every meal, usually locally sourced. Meals are reasonably priced at around GB£3-5 per dish for traditional dishes such as baked rice, casseroles, stuffed aubergine and Jani Meat (beef or lamb sautéed with onions, garlic and spices). Fresh fish is also plentiful, from the sea or lakes and is an important ingredient in many dishes. Dishes that must be sampled are Tirana stew, Elbasani yogurt and baked phyllo pie. For dessert, there are the classic cookies and puddings but most importantly the Baklava is very popular. Drinks are reasonably priced with a bottle of beer costing around GB£2.20 yet traditional drinks need to be tried as well, Raki and 'Scanderbeg' Cognac, (noted for its unique flavour and aroma). Your leader will recommend restaurants where meals are not included.

Route 9 daagse rondreis Snowshoeing in Albania

This is uncharted territory for recreational snowshoers. The rugged Albanian Alps possess a wild and outstanding natural beauty, and the country a captivating history. Ancient blood feuds and folklore mark its past and agricultural life has remained unchanged for centuries. Some say that visiting Albania is as close as you'll get to stepping 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. After winter snowfall, the remote mountains around Valbone and the Kosovan border offer some fantastic snowshoe routes passing alpine meadows, rural hamlets, snowy summits and pristine forest. There’s time too for sightseeing in Prizren before heading back to Tirana for our last night.

  1. Dag 1 - Start Tirana.
  2. Dag 2 - Drive northwards via Bajram Curri to picturesque Valbonë in the Albanian Alps.
