This is an excellent opportunity to see the wild side of the Albanian Riviera and to experience something out of the ordinary. The name is believed to have come from Gjiri i Perendise (Bay of God).
The trip can be combined with an overnight stay on the idyllic Gjipe beach and a visit to the ruins of St Theodor’s Monastery.
The walk through the Gjipe canyon is 2,5km and the stony and rocky path (partially very steep and dangerous) can be slippery during wet weather. Climbing is necessary in a few places, while 75% of the 5km walk through the old monastery is paved.
