This 3-day hiking tour is for explorers that are passionate about hiking and nature. We will hike to Qorre Peak, trek through the ancient “Caesar Trail” and discover the hidden St. Andreas Bay.

Tour Overview

Day 1

Tirana – Vlora - Llogara National Park – Qorre Peak - Llogara National Park

Our professional tour guide will pick you up at your hotel in Tirana at 9:00 am in the morning to begin our journey towards Southern Albania. We will make a short stop at Vlora where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas meet. At around 12:30, you will get some free time to have some delicious lunch and to wander around by yourself till 14:00 pm. After lunch, we will continue our tour towards Mount Cika, our aim for today is to hike Qorre Peak, 2018m above sea level and the second highest peak of the Ceraunian Mountains. Overnight in Llogara National Park.
Day 2

Llogara National Park - St. Andreas Bay

We will wake up early in the morning with an innate sense of wonder and desire to explore more. Our destination will be St. Andreas Bay, considered as a hidden gem of Albania. To reach this hidden beach (only reachable by approximately 6 hours hiking), we will walk through the ancient Caesar’s path. The path passes through the top of the Karaburun Peninsula reaching from 800m up to 1240m altitudes, where we start our descending trekking to St. Andreas Bay. This is where things get interesting; we will set up a tent camp (equipment will be brought to bay by horse), light up a fire by the beach, wait for the sunset, count the stars and taste wild seafood grilled on the fire. Overnight in a tent at the bay.
Day 3

St. Andreas Bay – Karaburun Peninsula – Palasa

There is no better feeling than waking up from the sound of calm waves hitting the shore. After breakfast with a seaside view, we will enjoy a final swim in the crystal-clear waters. We pack up our tents and get ready to explore the rest of Karaburun Peninsula by hiking along the southwest coastline. While hiking we will discover empty beaches, isolated old churches and hidden caves used by pirates back in the days. (Optional; travelers whom prefer to explore the coastline to Palasa by boat instead of hiking can do this for 40 Euros/person, 3 pax minimum, from May till September). Palasa beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches of Southern Albania. Our next destination is the balcony of the Albanian Riviera where we will enjoy a traditional lunch with a panoramic view. We will arrive in Tirana in the late afternoon.
