Traveling from Tirana to Saranda is probably one of the longest rides you can take from Tirana to another destination within Albania. However, this trip can also be considered as one of the most beautiful as well. You can take two main directions to go to Saranda, via the riviera (through which you can admire the astonishing views of the Llogara pass and Rivera beautiful villages) or via Gjirokastra (by taking this road you can stop by the UNESCO cite of Gjirokastra and at the Blue Eye “Syri i Kaltër” a natural water source spring wonder.
Getting the public transport from Tirana to Saranda it is possible but its a mission. The busses run twice per day, early in the morning and late at night, since the bus ride takes about 8 – 10 hours as the bus stops in almost every city on the way to Saranda. However, by taking the bus you will not be able to enjoy the Amazing view of the Llogara pass and the Riviera.
If you are more than 2 travelers it’s recommended and worthier getting a private shuttle from Tirana. It will relive you all the timetable stress and will enjoy the entire trip. Our guides & professional drivers will also make your journey informative and enjoyable.
