Pellumbas cave and Erzeni canyon
If you are visiting Tirana for a few days and you want to explore the wild beauty of Tirana’s surroundings, the best thing to do is to jump into this day tour. We will start our hiking adventure towards the beautiful area at 9:00 am. Our tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana. The entrance of the Pellumbas cave has a wooden platform, so it is easy to take a moment to soak in the area. This destination offers an amazing view of wild mountains and valleys mixed with the canyon of Erzeni river. The ancient cave bears used to live inside this cave 40,000 years ago. After this, it became a home for ancient humans dating back to the Middle Paleothic era (circa 30,000 years ago). During the First and Second World War, the cave was used as a hiding place for people from the surrounding villages. The cave portrays a long history and is nowadays an interesting and beautiful place to visit. Some people describe it is a once in a lifetime experience. It is also a spectacular hiking experience to the rock on the cave of Pellumbas. Near the Pellumbas cave, you can find the Erzeni canyon. The Erzeni river is 108 km long and the flowing water has created these spectacular canyons over the centuries. The canyon is a beautiful place to swim in, if the weather allows it, with crystal-clear water and surrounded by waterfalls and stunning rock formations. We will enjoy a picnic lunch with the great view in the canyon before heading back to the capital. We will be back in Tirana in the afternoon.
