Tour Overview

Day 1

Pogradec

Situated in the shores of Ohrid Lake, Pogradec is one of the oldest settled civilizations in Albania. As we drive down the elaborated zig – zags, we encounter the tremendous scenery offering one of the most picturesque views of Lake Ohrid and Lin Peninsula. In addition to the enchanting views we will discover the mosaic of Lin, dating back to 7th-6th centuries B.C. This ancient artwork exhibits an amazing ensemble of zoomorphic, floral, and geometric decorations resembling those in ancient Durrës. Lin has also been described as the favorite holiday destination of the Roman Emperor Justinian’s parents. Our journey continues toward Pogradec, where we will visit the old town and stroll down by the lake. Ohrid lake, of a tectonic origin (2 – 4 million years old) is the deepest lake in Balkans, and it is under UNESCO protection due to its unique value and is home 17 species of aquatic animals. Before leaving Pogradec we won’t miss Drilon and Tushemisht. Drilon waters form a small lake, surrounded by beautiful greenery that makes the area and the nearby village of Tushemisht a unique oasis of beauty and tranquility. The area is also famos for its culinary wonders; the traditional fish dishes, especially the baked speckled trout (Koran in Albanian), as well as the famous pickles. You might also sample the various wines on offer, but don’t miss the traditional unique wine of Buti, or the famous Perla and Moskat raki of Pogradec.
