Tour Overview

Day 1

Mystic cave of Sarisalltik in Kruja

Our tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana at 9:00 am in the morning. Kruja is a historical city symbol of the Albanian resistance against the expansion of Ottoman Empire. The city is situated in central Albania on a rocky mountainous terrain about 560 meters above sea level, on the slopes of Sarisalltiku Mountain. Walking through Kruja’s Medieval Old Bazaar (one of the biggest and oldest in Balkans) gives you a sense of a passage through the history. You will be surrounded by crafts and local products carefully designed by local artisans and housewives of the Kruja area. We will also visit the castle and Teqeja e Dollmes. Now the fun will really begin: we will take the ancient path to the Sarisalltik cave. Legends say that this specific hidden path was used by Scanderbeg and his generals to supply the castle with food and armours during the Ottoman attacks. This hike will take about 1.5 hours. When we have reached the top, you will get a chance to visit the mystic cave with its spiritual connections of the Bektashi religion (an Albanian very liberal Muslim belief). This point (Sarisalltik) is considered to be the balcony of Kruja. If the weather is in our favour, we can even see the Adriatic Sea from here. Lunch will also be on top of the mountain with the panoramic view at around 13:00. After this, we will arrive back in Tirana in the late afternoon.
